Ronald Koeman chose to strengthen the center of the defense against Bayern Munich and came out with his classic 3-5-2. The old system did not sit well with Barça, who suffered a lot with the ball and especially without it

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Ronald Koeman did strong to his FC Barcelona the past season with the system of three head offices and two carrileros. The Dutch established this training in the second half of the last campaign and achieved that his team competed in League and won the Glass of the King with the 3-5-2. Although the technician also used the classical 4-3-3 and even a species of 3-4-3, his system preferred was definitely the one of three defenders and two forwards.

This course, the míster still had not used this training of three defences, but against the Bayern of Munich could not resist, and taking advantage of the multiple drops that there was in the forward bet by this change. The Barça went out with Ronald Araújo​, Gerard Hammered and Eric García backwards, and with Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba in the sides. Up they remained Memphis Depay and Luuk of Jong, that tried to do of Antoine Griezmann and of Leo Messi, that were the one who more played there the past year.

However, in spite of the good intentions of Koeman, that looked for to reinforce the defence with the inclusion of the three head offices, the result against the Bavarians was not the expected. The barcelonistas suffered a lot in defence, but also with the ball, with which did not know what do until very gone in the party. In fact, the Catalans not even arrived to throw to goal in the 90 minutes. The change of system, therefore, did not work and left in evidence so much to the trainer as to all his players.

Go out with three backwards did that the Barcelona accommodated and preferred to go out more conservative of the usual. Although the culés were up to look for to the Bayern, the pressure only exerted it Luuk Of Jong, Depay, Frenkie of Jong and in occasions Pedri, remaining Busquets in no man's land. The idea seemed to be defend of the germanos and avoid that they went out in pack to the against, therefore the culés renounced to try command with the balloon, something that paid expensive.

The turn to the 4-3-3 gave him another air to the Barça

The ones of Julian Nagelsmann did to cost his physical elder and in these moments his greater football, and went the dominadores of the crash during almost all the meeting. The only moment in which the Barça grew something and began to give better feelings was when Koeman changed of training to the 4-3-3 with the entrance of the Gavi, Yusuf Demir or Philippe Coutinho, that at least gave him another air to the team in the last 20 minutes.

Who know what had happened if the technician had bet by the 4-3-3 from the start. It can that the Bayern had taken advantage of that backwards there had been more hollow and there was goleado even more. But also it fits the possibility that the Barcelona had grown with the ball and at least had competed, something that with the 3-5-2 no sucedió. It will be necessary to see if the míster of Zaandam goes back to insist with this variation in the next parties in spite of the poor result that gave him in this last.
