Spanish football is back. LaLiga 2022-23 with the surprise defeat of Seville in field of Osasuna and this Saturday comes the main course with the cross between Vallecano Ray Y Barcelona in the Camp Nou.

The beginning of the cermente offers the scoring battle between Robert Lewandowskibrand new culé signing, and Radamel Falcao Garciaexperienced striker for Rayo.

Barcelona had a pretty turbulent preview. In the midst of the complications when it came to registering players, coach Xavi Hernández initially announced that they had two hours before the game to resolve the situation.

In the end there was happy. In the early hours of Saturday, Spanish media confirmed that the Blaugrana signings were registered, with the exception of Jules Koundé. The French defender was bought just a few days ago and in this sense the club must release salary masses to be able to count on him in the future.

Thus, Xavi will not only have Lewandowski but also Franck Kessié, Andreas Christensen and Raphinha. This in addition to the expected return of Ousmane Dembélé.

The big question in the eleven is who will occupy the position of right back. Although Sergiño Dest and Sergi Roberto are regulars in that part of the field, central defender Ronald Araújo would have great chances of being the starter. To a lesser extent is the consideration of the third midfielder, who will accompany Busquets and Pedri. Gavi takes the lead, but both Frenkie De Jong and Kessié await.

On the Rayo side, coach Andoni Iraola gave a detailed report on the news on his payroll ahead of the crucial duel. Saveljich, Comesaña and Andrés Martín will not see action. On the other hand, the experienced goalkeeper Diego López will be awaited until the last moment.

Likewise, he did not confirm or deny whether Falcao will start at the Camp Nou. The DT was only satisfied with the performance of the samarium during the preseason and trusts that “he can give us the same things that he gave us last year.” In case of not being a first baseman, surely the forward will be Randy Nteka.

About the rival, Iraola was cautious when understanding that with so many signings, it will be logical that Barcelona go out to overwhelm. In this sense, he affirmed that he expects Lewandowski, Dembélé and Raphinha in the offensive trident.

The last duel between both clubs took place on April 24 at the Camp Nou. That day he won the visit with a solitary score by Álvaro García and Falcao was on the bench.

Precisely regarding the most recent performance of ‘Tiger’ against the Catalans, it is necessary to go back to October 27 last year. On that occasion, Radamel scored Rayo’s only goal in another narrow victory.
