Espasandín and Vázquez: two possible debuts


Víctor Espasandín and Víctor Vázquez of Barça B could make their debuts against Sevilla. Víctor Sánchez has also been named in Frank Rijkaard’s squad.

Frank Rijkaard will be going to Sevilla on Saturday with two Barça B players, Espasandín and Vázquez, to cover for the many absent faces.

Espasandín: left back

Galician Víctor Espasandín is a solid player at the back, focused, quick and hard working. He plays on the left and has a string left foot as displayed in 18 games this season for Barça B, 17 of which he started.

Víctor Vázquez: attacker

He is skilful an accomplished dribbler, has a great shot and reads the game well. He has appeared in 14 games this term for Barça B, 10 as a starter, although he has missed 10 games through injury.

Numbers 27 and 28

These would be the 27th and 28th reserve team players that Rijkaard has given a chance since coming to the club five seasons ago. Curiously, three of the previous 26 also made their debuts at the Sánchez Pizjuán: Montañés, Ludovic and Martos in the 2005-06 season, when Barcelona had already secured the championship title.

Víctor Sánchez already played

The player from Terrassa played at right back for the full 90 minutes. Víctor Sánchez was also named for the league match at Montjuic against Espanyol, although he remained on the bench.
