Xavi offers a second chance to Memphis Depay

The Dutch forward started against Elche by surprise in place of Ansu, Ferran and Raphinha

Memphis Depay was one of the surprise names in the line up for Barcelona against Elche. The Dutchman played 54 minus against Cadiz but didn’t have much impact. He was brought off for Lewandowski, who scored.

This time they will be paired, with Memphis operating off to the left, although he often moves around on the pitch. That will allow Alejandro Balde to get up the flank.

Memphis will share the attacking duties with Dembele and the Pole.

He is in search of his first goal of the season, as he also did not net as a sub against Viktoria Plzen. He last netted in a competitive game against Celta Vigo on May 10. 

This will be his 41st game for Barcelona, and he has scored 13 goals with three assists.
