Xavi’s options to replace suspended Lewandowski

For the next three La Liga games, Xavi Hernandez must decide who he will replace Robert Lewandowski following the rejection of the appeal against his 3-match ban. Consequently, the Blaugrana coach must choose someone to replace him in the offensive reference against Espanyol, Atlético, and Getafe. In terms of options, Xavi has the following players available to choose from.

Memphis Depay: The most normal thing is that Xavi opts for the other pure nine that he has in the squad. The Dutch forward arrives after having a good World Cup personally despite having lost with his team in the quarterfinals against Argentina. Putting Memphis in the lead would allow not to move many pieces and, if necessary, keep Ansu on the wing if the coach prefers.

Ansu Fati: After his injury, he is becoming progressively more fit, and if there is one trait that distinguishes him, it is his instinct for scoring. He effortlessly plugs them in when he wanders the circumscribed area, and his exceptional shooting skill would make him a surefire alternative for Lewandowski.

Ferran Torres: The Valencian winger has frequently stepped in as a false nine, notably for the Spanish team. He is also a potential candidate to take the place of the Pole because of his strength, mobility, and ability to create space.

Victor Barberra: There isn’t any striker at Barca Atletic who technically stands out among the others. However, with four goals thus far this season, Victor Barberá has surpassed all other scorers, and he represents one of the greatest goal-scoring guarantees provided by Barcelona’s subsidiary team.
