Luis Enrique bets on Barça for the Nations League

  • The Barça squad is the great novelty in a call-up without Ansu Fati

  • Despite the bad moment, the Barcelona club is the one that contributes the most players, while Madrid is once again without any representative

Luis Enrique has announced the list for the ‘final four’ of the League of Nations, marked by losses and with the great novelty of the azulgrana Gavi. His companions Pedri, Busquets and Eric García they also enter a call without Ansu Fati. Despite the bad moment that Koeman’s team is going through, the Barcelona club is the one that contributes the most players while Madrid is again without a representative for the third time.

The coach had four forwards injured (Dani Olmo, Álvaro Morata, Gerard Moreno and Abel Ruiz) and its two left sides (José Luis Gayà and Jordi Alba). Physical problems have also prevented the presence of Real Madrid player Dani Carvajal and Carlos Soler, both injured in the last Valencia-Madrid.

Luis Enrique has not finally included him. Who does return is Pedri, who was rested in the last call after having played the Eurocup (where he was chosen as the best young player and included in the ideal eleven) and the Olympic Games.

Besides Gavi, the other great novelty is another young value, Yeremi pine, Villarreal striker who will turn 19 on the 20th.
