Barcelona midfield talent Pablo Torre could be handled a start in the UCL against Viktoria Plzen.
Pablo Torre has had a challenging start to life as a player for Barcelona. The 19-year-old summer signing has finding it very difficult to get into games because of the battle for positions in the midfield department.
Torre, though, might get his chance to debut for Barcelona when they face Viktoria Plzen in the UEFA Champions League tomorrow, according to SPORT.
The young midfielder, who was acquired from Racing Santander in the summer, entered the current campaign having had an outstanding previous one in which he had assisted his former team in being promoted to La Liga 2.
Even though Xavi wanted Torre to remain a part of the first team, he hasn’t been able to give him enough playing time.
The kid is the only member of the first team who hasn’t started a single game across all competitions this year. He has only played in three games thus far, totaling just 30 minutes of action.
However, Torre may finally make his first Blaugrana start on Tuesday when the teams face Viktoria Plzen. The young player made his Barça senior debut against the Czech team, and he may also get his first chance to start against them.
Due to Sergio Busquets’ ban, he is unable to compete. Because the game has little bearing on the outcome, Xavi may decide to rest Pedri, who has been playing nonstop, as well as Frenkie de Jong.
It might open up starting possibilities for Torre and other players like Franck Kessie.
The 19-year-old will need to make the most of the moment if that occurs because there have been rumors about him joining a team on loan in January.
