Barça 'plays' it this Wednesday against Bayern Munich. For the Catalans, only victory is worth it to depend on themselves ... What can Xavi do to achieve it?

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona begins the week 'nail' to follow his walk in the Champions League. It does not arrive of the best way, after a suffered defeat in front of the Real Betis, but there is not another option that happen the page and concentrate in the 'final' that supposes the visit to the Bayern of Munich. To the ones of Xavi Hernández only costs him the victory to depend on yes same and achieve the note to the following round, by what the trainer egarense needs to have a good plan for the 'war' against the germanos.

The Barça does not arrive like favourite, this is clear. Xavi, however, has commissioned to repeat an and again that the team is able to win in the Allianz Sand. "I see him able to the team to go to Munich and win. At first, it is the aim. It does not remain us another", said minutes after seeing fall to his team in the Camp Nou. To his time, desveló that the 'nail' to survive in one of the 'worse fields' of the world is to have the balloon at all times and play in contrary field.

That, in theory, is the plan for all the parties, but in the Barça are very conscious that in Munich it is necessary to step extra, offer more and not to remain waiting for the rival, that already has showed to be lethal when has opportunities. In the beginning of the stage of the of Terrassa in the Barcelona bench, has seen to a team that begins presionando high and looks for to drown the rival, but that dispels with the happen of the minutes and to the that do him a lot of damage with very little.

Go out alive of Munich goes through 'hold', also, because the Bayern is a team to the that does him very easy arrollar to his rivals, but that is not totally invincible. Proof of this, his three surprising defeats in this season: 1-2 against the Frankfurt, in the seventh day of the Bundesliga, the goleada of the Mönchengladbach in Glass (5-0) and the last, in front of the Augsburg (2-1) in the domestic championship. It does not remove, in no case, that was a fearsome team and to the that it is necessary to plant him expensive for incomodarlo.

What can do Xavi? It is the big question. It keeps on being 'victim' of the drop of a few players and there is little margin for rotar or try something new. It could opt by a 3-4-3 and would not be a surprise, with Eric García, Ronald Araújo and Gerard Hammered in defence, a centre of the field with Busquets and Of Jong for the creation, with Nico and Gavi in a more advanced position, forming a picture, whereas in the forward would move the things. Ousmane Dembélé Aims to be headline and will plant by the right, with Memhpis in the centre and Jordi Alba in the left.

In case to opt again by the 4-3-3, would go in Mingueza or Dest by Araújo and Alba would play in his usual position, with Gavi playing as false extreme. Xavi has not given 'conrtinuidad' to any of the two diagrams, but against the Benfica almost costs him to achieve the victory the 3-4-3. The team signed ones very good first 30 minutes, stepped backwards and at the end the entry of Dembélé gave the 'plus' to the team that needed, although it finished being insufficient.

Key party... And without being able to fail

The Barça plays the life in Munich. It is the possibility that the Benfica 'puncture' in front of the Dynamo of Kiev, but the options are reduced. Of there that it was essential that the team go out you to the field of the Allianz Sand with energies renewed and with the intention to win, although of sure will be complicated. The recent registers in front of the Bavarians are not positive (2-8 in Lisbon and 0-3 in the Camp Nou), but in moments of need, anything can happen.

The Bayern also arrives 'hurt', by what will want to punish to the Barça after all it sucedido with the Balloon of Gold. Thomas Müller left it more than clear does some days: "I Want to put everything in the scales with the aim of to bring the League of Champions of turn to Munich and like this show to the world of the football what is happening, especially, what the German football can offer", adding that "have the next opportunity to do it next Wednesday in the party of the League of Champions against the FC Barcelona".
