FC Barcelona face Cadiz next Sunday at 7:30 pm at the Olympic stadium of Montjuic in what is an important match. However, due to thee departure of Dembele and the unfortunate sending off of Raphinha v Getafe Xavi is left without his two preferred right wingers. With a few options to replace Raphinha Xavi has an important choice to make. According to Mundo Deportivo though Xavi has made up his mind. Abde will replace Raphinha on one of the flanks. Xavi likes Abde due to his characteristics.
Abde replaced Christensen at half time v Getafe in order to create more danger however the score remained 0-0. Abde did cause problems down the left hand side though for Getafe.
Xavi does have other options in Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres and sixteen year old sensation Lamine Yamal. However Xavi prefers Abde over these options due to his dribbling and 1v1 ability.
It remains to be seen what side the second attacker plays down alongside Robert Lewandowski. Ezzalzouli can play right side aswell as left side. If Xavi decides to play the second man down the left we might not see Balde getting forward as much like in the second half of Barca v Getafe.
