Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that Barcelona coach Xavi had a problem at Clasico how to stop Real Madrid star Vinicius as Araujo and Conde were injured during the international break.

Araujo was the player who stopped Vinicius in the Clasico last March because of his strength and speed, and the match ended 4/0 for the Blue Garnets, with Barcelona repeating a friendly win in June with a 1/0 set-up period.

The club confirmed the absence of the Uruguayan in the match with Real, and possibly until the end of the year, and even his replacement Jules Conde was injured in that place with France, although he may catch up in the match.

And the closest player to play at right back with Barcelona is Hector Bellerin, although in defense he suffers at times and is injured for a while, and one of the options is Sergi Roberto, although he did not play against Elche due to injury. and at the moment he is still recovering, waiting to see if he can reappear on Saturday against Mallorca.

Xavi is also considering Eric Garcia as a defender to stop Vinicius as well as Christensen, although the latter is not an option because he lacks speed.

Notably, the last option Xavi is considering is to play with 3 defenders and he is considering doing so first against Inter Milan in the Champions League, especially since the Nerazzurri are playing with 2 in attack.
