Arturo Vidal uploaded a photo to his Instagram stories greeting his teammate, Gabriel Arias, who assumed the red portico following the marginalization of Claudio Bravo, for the goalkeeper’s birthday. “Happy meet dear friend, ” was the message that accompanied the photo. Vidal is in Barcelona, after the days of rest and will be part of those called up by Ernesto Valverde for the duel against Valencia. But in Spain they say that he will go to the bank, despite having the support of the hobby, after his good closure in the 2018-2019 season, and his goal against Betis in the start of the new campaign. The two-time champion of America with the ‘Red’ has only added 24 minutes of 270 possible in the nascent season with the blaugrana house, very little for a player who had been the protagonist and well evaluated just a few months ago. The loss for the minimum against Athletic Club in San Mamés and the draw against Osasuna (2-2) of the last day at El Sadar are not offset by the bulging win against Real Betis at the Camp Nou (5-2). However, to remain undefeated and triumphant at home is vital for this Barca that continues without its captain, the pain in the oil Leo Messi.De according to the Spanish press, the most likely eleven of FC Barcelona would be with Marc André Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Samuel Umtiti, Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba; Sergi Busquets, Frenkie de Jong, Ivan Rakitic (Arthur); Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez and Carles Pérez.
