FC Barcelona Mingueza, De Jong or Umtiti, the alternatives to the injured Araujo

Araujo leaves the pitch after injuring himself

La lesin de Araujo opens a real enigma in the center of the rear. Koeman you have three options on the table: Mingueza, De Jong and Umititi. The Uruguayan underwent new tests on Monday that confirmed the sprain in his left ankle, but the Barça entity did not reveal the degree or the time of absence. Anyway, it doesn’t look good. The footballer left the lawn of Villamarn on Sunday very lame and arrived at the concentration hotel with a frula in the affected area.

A Koeman he likes to have a right-handed central and a left-handed one. Therefore, against Betis bet for entering De Jong. However, if he opts for the Dutchman in the back row he will lose potential in the midfield. Also, in recent weeks, he has been a decisive player and has seen the door. It would be an option to consider, but it does not seem to be the strongest. Everything will also depend on the discomfort of Dest.

Do not forget that Mingueza has passed to the right back due to the American’s continuing physical problems and the two consecutive injuries of Sergi Roberto. The canterano is a firm possibility to train together with Lenglet, but depend on the discomfort in the thigh that Dest has dragged on for several games.

The third way will be Umtiti, but that will force to align Lenglet on the right, at the site of Araujo. The center-back has had a leading role in this beginning of 2021 and it will be necessary to see if Koeman bet on him in the decisive matches that come now.

The technician looks for the nth solution for the rear axle. I already warned in summer and in January that the team needed a central defender and, furthermore, the injuries are not respecting the rear. Now him Barcelona faces a decisive stretch, with the semifinal of Cup against him Sevilla and the eighth against him PSG, and I probably will without Araujo. Neither Piqu, long-term injured.
