Piqué returns to the bench in Champions

The Barcelona he plays it tonight in Milan against Inter, in the match of day 3 of the group stage of the Champions League. The culé team is obliged to add if they do not want to get into problems similar to those of last year in Europe and for this, Xavi hardly presents any news in the eleven. Conditioned by the casualties, Piqué returns to the bench, while up top he recovers the trident formed by Lewandowski, Dembele Y Raphinha.

Xavi Hernández, who rotated in the visit to Mallorca last Saturday, once again has his best players from midfield up and the eleven presented by the Barcelona coach against Inter will be made up of: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Eric Garcia, Christensen, Marcos Alonso; Busquets, Pedri, Gavi; Dembele, Raphinha and Lewandowski.

The barca it is played in San Siro. After the defeat in Munich he can’t give up any more points if he doesn’t want to get into complications and see how his qualification for the round of 16 is put at serious risk. For this reason, Xavi returns to the team that has given him the best results at the start of the season, although with the significant casualties that he presents in defense.

Jules Koundé, Hector Bellerin Y Ronald Araujo They are out due to injury, so the number of coaches left on the bench to form his defense is minimal. The main doubt resided in who would occupy the right side and if Gerard Piqué he would repeat in the center of the defense, but will finally return to the bench, while Sergi Roberto will be in the right lane.

The culé team is in second position in group C of the Champions, after beating Viktoria Plzen and losing to Bayern. Inter reaped the same results, so the direct duel between the two will be, in principle, the one that decides the second place in the group, if one takes into account that the Germans appear as the great favorites to be first.
