Luis Enrique knows that it made a mistake in his approach and in the election of the players, by what will give dump to his plan and will look for 'condition' to the Barça with new 'duels' in all the sectors in the field. Xavi Hernández knows that where can generate more advantage is in the centre of the field, where has players with a lot of quality that can mark the difference. Ílkay Gündogan, Frenkie of Jong and Pedri González are called to carry the reins of the team.

Change of plan in the PSG and a vital need for the Barça

The trainer egarense is conscious that, by names, the Barça can win the battle against the PSG, that probably will have the big change of Warren Zaïre-Emery. It was not to title in the gone, but has all the ballots of colarse in the initial alignment beside Vitinha, goleador in the gone, and Fabián Ruiz.

The culés will have to pose a party in which they can impose and mark the times of the clash, causing that the PSG pull and can not play so vertically as it likes them. They are conscious that the Parisians, in three or four touch, can plant in rival field and generate a clear occasion. Of there that the figure of the three Barcelona midfield players was key to face the eliminatory.

Of Jong and Pedri, key figures

Everything seems to indicate to that the Dutch will be the elected so that the ex of the Manchester City can adopt a more advanced position and connect more easily to the attack, as it happened in the gone. The Barça knows that the best version of the Teutonic appears when it is more aldelantado and does not have to visit so many metres for replegarse and help in defensive works, by what seems likely that Xavi will keep his role in the team in the crash of the turn.

In this same sense, will be important that appear Pedri in his more effective version. Already in the party of gone was key to put the centre with which Raphinha annotated the tie in the Park of the Princes in a big genialidad instants after going in to the terrain of game. If it is to tope physically, can be the most differential player offering 'felt' and the necessary pause to the team.
