‘No way in the world’ – These Barcelona fans can’t believe Luuk de Jong starts ahead of Ansu Fati
It’s not an exaggeration to say that Barcelona’s Champions League fixture against Dynamo Kyiv is an absolute must-win for the Catalan club.
Winless and goalless so far in this season’s competition, another loss will almost certainly see them exit at the group stage unless there happens to be an incredible turnaround in results in the final three group games.
To that end, there might’ve been an expectation that Ronald Koeman would play his strongest starting XI, including both Ansu Fati and Sergio Aguero.
Neither striker, one of whom is clearly in form, have made the cut and instead Koeman has plumped for Luuk de Jong up front.
The striker has done little to get the locals off of their seats in 21/22 and his inclusion is hardly likely to be met with universal approval.
Barca are also without Eric Garcia who is suspended, and the likes of Pedri, Ousmane Dembele and Martin Braithwaite through injury.
