Go with the fly behind the ear Koeman, usually predisposed to dialogue and argumentation until he has said enough. Questioned by the team’s game and the results – a great fight against Bayern and draws against Athletic and Granada – the Dutch coach considers that much more is required of him than he can give with this team in his hands, to the point that he calls it in reconstruction. “This is not the Barça of eight years ago,” he resolved after the duel against Granada. From the club, there are those who support the coach but from the board it was already warned that it was not “their choice”. So after the October break, unless the team is twisted more, their future will be decided. A future that is more on the wing since Koeman challenged Laporta. “He talks too much,” he confessed. So the stake against Cádiz comes at a time of confusion and anger. That the ball enters the rival goal, it will make everything easier.

Barcelona accumulates casualties and it is known that the previous line-up against Granada did not convince the locker room. The duel against Cádiz is, therefore, a good way to measure the involvement of the group with the coach. Without Alba or Balde, Dest will occupy the left lane. Pedri is not there either and Luuk de Jong is supposed to be at the forefront of the attack. The Barça team needs the aim of its forwards, especially if one takes into account that Cádiz will pose a duel similar to that of Granada, with the team in their field to go against it.
