Time for Alexis

The defense line will depend on whether Adriano remains at eleven or Puyol occupies the left back.

Barça will return tonight to la Liga at the Nou Camp with new courage after Real Madrid slip combined with his big win at the Sánchez Pizjuán, and more effective once again Alexis Sánchez to be able to start against Granada in the starting lineup. The Chilean forward, who already played the last ten minutes of the match against Sevilla, returns to the Nou Camp after he was injured in the clash against Sporting, precisely at the Estadi, and seems destined to form the triplet attacker with Pedro and Messi .

Although the season is not proving at all easy because of the many parties and many physical problems that affect the workforce, Josep Guardiola is recovering gradually effective in the face of decisive phase of the season. One is Alexis, another Thiago Alcántara, which gives you more choices in the wide area.

Hence, against Granada, Barça may have more of a novelty in all lines. The question is whether defense Pep will opt for three or four line maintained. In fact, this is a relatively minor detail, considering that one of the virtues of team is that his drawing is changing continuously according to the needs that has marked the development of the matches.

Also to be seen whether, beyond the point reprimand Adriano, the Brazilian repeated on the left side is either Carles Puyol who takes care of that band. Alves seems fixed on the right and Mascherano and Pique would be responsible for the shaft.

Also in the midfield there are several options and Thiago and Keita could be included in the starting lineup. From the outset, the squad has more numbers allows for their return to rest Iniesta and Xavi without drawing and style suffer. The Mali international could be the relief of Sergio Busquets, but Guardiola is unlikely that many changes take place in the starting line in one go. Another thing is that they all are shared playing time will elapse depending on how the meeting.

In the offensive device also point to retrieve new effective developments. The today seems a good match for Pedro Rodríguez continued availability of minutes to help you definitively refine your setup.

And in the case of Alexis Sanchez has overcome a thigh problem and needs minutes of footage that will help restore the competitive edge. This would allow to rest Cesc Fàbregas while the axis of attack would remain the evergreen Leo Messi. The Rosario, in a state of excellent and engaged in the struggle for the 'top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo how often is a guarantee to score. (via SPORT)
