Vitor Roque’s Big Night: Can He Secure His First Goal?

2 min read

Barcelona is all set for their first match in the Copa Del Rey against UD Barbastro tonight, and everyone’s buzzing about Vitor Roque, the new guy who’s hoping to score his first goal since joining the team a few days ago.

Who Might Play for Barcelona Against Barbastro?

Xavi Hernandez, the manager, might mix things up a bit to keep the team fresh for the Spanish Super Cup. We could see some young talents like Marc Casado, Hector Fort, and Pau Cubarsi getting a chance, while the seasoned players Ilkay Gundogan and Robert Lewandowski might get a bit of rest.

What’s Happening in Defense?

With Marc-Andre ter Stegen still out, Inaki Pena will be holding the fort in goal. There are a few injuries, like Joao Cancelo’s knock, which might open the door for Hector Fort and Alejandro Balde to step up in the defensive game.

Shaking Up the Midfield

In the midfield, it seems like Xavi might give a break to Sergi Roberto, Ilkay Gundogan, and Frenkie de Jong. Oriol Romeu, the new signing, could be holding down the fort, flanked by Marc Casado and Fermin Lopez, who will be stepping in for the sidelined Pedri and Gavi.

What’s the Plan for Scoring?

Barcelona has a bit of a challenge with Lamine Yamal being suspended, but that means Vitor Roque gets his big chance in the number nine spot. Roque, along with the wide attackers Ferran Torres and Joao Felix, is hungry for a goal, especially after missing out in the last game against Las Palmas. And if things get intense, there’s always Robert Lewandowski waiting in the wings, but let’s hope they won’t need him tonight.
