Barca-Sporting: Asalto the leader (without Cesc)

Fàbregas's injury doesn't deviate to Barça of the objective that is to go to for the first away win in the league.


If everything is going to face Barca in Gijon now aspires to achieve two objectives: to win their first away game in this league debut as a leader and competition in the current season. The first will depend on its own merits against Sporting. The second will result from what does turn Betis against Levante, far more surprising the two teams in the tournament for good performance. However, from the standpoint Barca, this weekend could not start worse during training yesterday, Cesc Fabregas suffered a broken fibers in the third disc from the hamstring of the right leg and will, according to the forecast of physicians, about three weeks out.

The injury of former Arsenal midfielder confirms the bad luck that is taking the boat on this hilly start to the season. The other star signing, Alexis, also recovers from a hamstring injury, as Iniesta, who despite yesterday's exercise is not to play. A few days ago tore ligaments in his left knee Afellay. To make matters worse, the captain Puyol still hurts the blow in the ribs he suffered in the match against BATE Borisov Europe and although it is called, does not seem to be available for the match Pep Guardiola at El Molinón. As always, nursing no excuse for this team, if anything has won over past seasons, is first-rate human resources. So, despite the illustrious low Guardiola can align a man team, especially given that tomorrow will be a new competition for clubs break because of the team matches. At the top, Messi, if brand and in goals to exceed Kubala.

"El Molinón is a complicated field of the league." Guardiola said yesterday and the first impulse was to attribute the message to the usual discourse of Barca coach on any opponent, much as the bottom club Sporting is a point. However, support the cautious predecent Guardiola: last season the club reached Gijón after 16 consecutive wins and only drew. In addition, the historical record, the club has lost more times to win at this stage: 16-12. However, the most common virtue of this boat is not taking anything for granted. Today, that leadership can give as a prize. (via MD)

Fourth hamstring rupture

There is not psychosis in 'Dog Barça', but yes a certain concern for the number of lesions in this muscle that is part of the hamstrings.


This is not to raise false alarms nor create earthquakes where there is only shaken, but clearly within the club there was some consternation at the relatively high number of fibrillar breaks that are occurring in this early season and even more most have one common denominator: the biceps femoris.

Up to five players have been injured in this muscle that is part of the hamstrings, while four cases have been broken more or less consideration Afellay, Alexis Sánchez, Iniesta and Cesc, while Adriano was a slight elongation, ie without further stretching.

However, what occupies and preoccupies between medical services and trainers, is the recurrence of symptoms.

And that despite the hamstring is the `will the more hamstring suffered during a match and the most at risk to suffer an injury, the fact that nearly 75% of injuries are leading to this muscle as is not so common.

Who opened the ban was the Dutch Ibrahim Afellay, who broke his hamstring in his left leg during the U.S. tour friendly against Manchester United. She was diagnosed five weeks low. A little over a month later, the Chilean Alexis Sanchez was seriously injured after being 'caught' in Anoeta against Real Sociedad. For now, the brand new signing injury is more serious as the suffered fracture in the proximal femoral biceps, which is engaged with the bone. The weather forecast was for two months.

Three days later, the 'black hand' Iniesta fell, breaking the hamstring in a race during the match against Milan in the Champions. And yesterday was Cesc Fabregas who during a training partidillo the hamstring broke his right leg, predicted three weeks off.

And that despite the hamstring is the 'hamstring' that suffer most during a game and most at risk to suffer an injury, the fact that nearly 75% of injuries are leading to this muscle as is not so common. Thus, it should be noted that the first three breaks occurred in a haul of the match with the player making a career with the rival, while the latter was in trying to score a goal, stretching the leg to the limit.

In any case, each injury is a symptom and a case series and one can not generalize, but it is clear that the doctors put the five senses to prevent further cases. (via SPORT)

Without Cesc...but with Xavi and Thiago


Josep Guardiola temporarily lost yesterday one of the most fit players who had shown at the start of the season, Cesc Fabregas. However, the large number of quality midfielders with a profile similar to that account will allow Pep template, if that's your bet, make a midfield capable of keeping the ball high with Xavi Hernandez and Thiago Alcántara ahead of Sergio Busquets.

Summer Discussions about Thiago compatibility with Cesc, Xavi Cesc ... have been completely phased out by reality. Not only for the rapid integration of former player of Arsenal or the demonstration of maturity of the young squad. Also, because the injury to Andres Iniesta made it clear that two additions were necessary to maintain a list of midfielders to keep the style that defines the team play.

Today, against Sporting, Barca comes with four sensitive absences have forced technicians to have the 17 with the first team and even recruit Isaac subsidiary of Cuenca. Still, nobody doubts that Guardiola has the twigs to make a starting line of absolute guarantees.

The first technical hurdle posed by the Catalans is guess the initial drawing of the equipment. Everything points to keep the 4-3-3 that already used in Minsk against BATE Borisov. In that game, Alves and Abidal became authentic with Pedro and Villa winger very active but the diagonals are looking inward. In principle, both remain in the holder with Leo Messi forming the triplet attacker.

The defensive line the Pique and Mascherano would complete the shaft Puyol to rest and thus exceed the blow definitely sack you received during the match in Minsk. And the midfield would consist of the pivot Busquets and Xavi Thiago front and interior to ensure rapid movement of the ball. Seydou Keita would be an alternative for this area in case the team needs more physical strength during the meeting. (via SPORT)
