Lose the file FC Barcelona a Ansu fati for several months, after undergoing surgery a few days ago due to the injury sustained in the match against Real Betis. Bad news for Ronald Koeman because he has had a spectacular start to the season and he won’t be able to count on him until the middle of winter. And we will see how the stop affects its progression.
For now, his coach will have to reconsider his lineups. The attacker played as a left-handed winger or even as a center forward, if so. On the left wing it seems complicated that he may have a natural replacement, since rather one of his teammates who will compete for his position could be transferred there.
Those players who might be on the left side, where they also have to understand with Jordi Alba, would be Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembélé, Pedri OR Philippe Coutinho (although the Brazilian has played more in the midfielder). Perhaps the former Borussia Dortmund player on a shifted wing would be the most interesting option, but he has already shown that he does better on the right.
As a reference striker, you can add a Martin Braithwaite to the list. It will not start, but it may have more minutes now. Or we might even see a change in Ronald Koeman’s scheme. In any case, of all they must provide the best possible scorer in the best form.
