Miralem Pjanic

is living two realities at Barça.

On the one hand, there is the Champions League, in which he has started both against Ferencvaros and against his former team, Juventus.

And against 'Vecchia Signora', in fact, he was on the field the whole game.

On the other, the League, in which he has never been part of the starting eleven.

He accumulates only 27 minutes of play and has lost the last two duels, against Getafe and, above all, Real Madrid.

Ronald Koeman

has not considered Pjanic much for the domestic championship, but things may be very different from now on.

At least, until the central roster no longer has only two members,

Gerard Piqué


Clément Lenglet


Ronald Araújo

played in Turin with a small fibrillar tear that became bigger and will be low for three or four weeks, but

Samuel Umtiti

is almost ready to return.

From his point of view, both the Frenchman and

Marc-André ter Stegen

still need a couple more training sessions to be able to play.

Tonight against Alavés (9:00 p.m.), in Mendizorroza, the Dutchman could once again test a

Frenkie de Jong

in the center of the rear


who was already his emergency solution against Juventus, with a view to future commitments.

And that would finally open the doors of ownership for the Bosnian in the League.

In Turin, he started a little nervous, but little by little he showed his best version.

Together with

Sergio Busquets

, he would also form the most defensive proposal for the center of the field, and that could help to partially alleviate possible deficiencies in the last line.

Call of attention to Ansu Fati

So far, though, Koeman seems to have appreciated the cheekiness of youth more than the security of seniority.

At least, again, in the League.

Sergiño Dest

, for example, started against the classic, but ran out of minutes against Juventus.

“He is a young player, he has to adapt, he showed his quality against Real Madrid, but

Sergi Roberto

played in Turin

because he did well at the beginning and there was no reason to remove him from the team.

Both will have opportunities.

That both fight for that position benefits the team ", argued the Dutchman, who wanted to give a touch of attention to another of the young people: an

Ansu Fati

who today turns 18.

«He has to improve on the subject of concentration.

Some turnovers come from a lack of concentration, not a lack of talent.

You have to take great care of him and help him, especially in his projection, ”explained a Koeman who decided to leave another pearl of La Masia in Barcelona, ​​the young

Riqui Puig.

«It is a technical decision.

In several games we have brought 23 footballers and, for me, that's too much.

It is better to have 20 or 21, at the most, and that there are players who are out and train hard in case I need to have them, "he said.
