Today’s papers are finally back focusing on football in Catalonia. And as it seems, Ronald Koeman is set to rotate his squad for the clash against Getafe. But before that happens, we’ve still got some international games to go through.
Speaking of national team duties, Mundo Deportivo remind us that Cristiano Ronaldo has indeed tested positive for the coronavirus. His appearance in the Champions League against Barcelona this month is therefore in question.
The Portuguese has contracted the virus somewhere back in his home country but the rest of the squad seem fine for now. Apart from that, they also report on Spain’s 1-0 defeat to Ukraine.
SPORT, on the other hand, believe Koeman will rotate the team for the clash against Getafe. Their title ‘Rotations in sight‘ seems to suggest it.
The players likely to feature from the very start are Francisco Trincão, Miralem Pjanić and Sergiño Dest. Of course, this is prompted by the fact that Barça have to play four games across 11 days, including El Clásico and a Champions League bout with Juventus.
Needless to say, it will be tough and everyone will have to participate. That means the players from the bench could make the difference.
Let’s wait and see if they do.
