Ernesto Valverde did not want to run any risk in Giuseppe Meazza and therefore it decided to take out an eleven entirely new​ with very few headlines. The technician barcelonista only has kept to three usual in a full alignment of new faces and with a change of system of the that will speak a lot in the next days.

The 'Txingurri' opted for changing of the classical 4-3-3 with which plays the Barça always to a 3-5-2 with three head offices, two carrileros, three midfield players and two forwards. Clément Lenglet, Ivan Rakitic and Antoine Griezmann are the only headlines that are supported by with regard to the last meetings of the culés. A player by line, something that could have been on purpose so that the team do not lose by complete the identity. Therefore, remembering that I Hammered, Messi and Sergi Roberto not even went in in the announcement, Ter Stegen, Busquets, Of Jong and Luis Suárez are the usual that remained in the bank in front of the 'neroazzurro'.

The eleven to the complete form it Net; Todibo, Lenglet, Umtiti; Wagué, Vidal, Rakitic, Aleñá, Junior Firpo; Griezmann and Carles Pérez. It is an alineción tremendously new and that anybody expected , because of the change of system that demanded to carry it out. It is likely that the reason by which the technician extremeño have decided to do this was because Ansu Fati was not in conditions to play from the start.

The juvenile drags physical problems from does several days and, if it could not play, the 4-4-3 alone had been possible with Luis Suárez of start. But the meeting was perfect so that the charrúa rested, since the Barça does not play absolutely at all. Precisely to be able to give him rest, the one of Viandar of the Edge could have opted by innovar and test a system of three head offices and only two forwards.

Besides, with this 3-5-2, the ex of the Athletic improves to the two carrileros that has the team. So much Junior like Wagué are lateral of a lot of route and clear offensive vocation that they could appreciate play with all the band for them. Any of the two stands out by his work in defence, by what also helps them the fact to have to a central more covering them the backs.

Opportunity of gold for Aleñá

The midfield keeps on being of three footballers, with Vidal or Rakitic doing of Busquets and Aleñá more centred in connecting with the forwards. The one of Mataró, that went back to have minutes in front of the Mallorca after being more than three months without playing an alone minute, has to show that has hollow in this Barcelona.
