If something is showing Ernesto Valverde during his first months in the FC Barcelona, is that it is a technician with personality. The majority of his predecessors respected during the greater part of his seasons in the Barcelona group the 4-3-3 that converted to the Barça of Pep Guardiola in the master and gentleman of the international football, but the extremeño arrives stepping strong.

Valverde Has not doubted in using the 4-2-3-1 in the two first alignments with which has played the Barça in this League 2017-18, against the Real Betis in the Camp Nou and the Sportive Alavés in Mendizorroza. Casually both meetings finished with the same result: victory by two goals to zero and a more effective game that convincente.

However, true is that it still remains a lot by pulir, as it is logical, when finding us at present at the beginning of the month of September. If the Barcelona assent in the 4-2-3-1, in any case, will have of a tactical weapon more to face up to the big clubs of Europe, that will do him unpredictable besides against the rest of teams.

It is not a secret that the majority of opponents of the group culé already have accustomed to his style of game, and the past season to the combined of Luis Enrique cost him horrors attain triumphs in parties against rivals a priori affordable. 

The Barça, with an alignment of guarantees

But Valverde wants to innovar, and is thus that the 4-2-3-1, seconded besides by the majority of the fans, can be an interesting option. With Leo Messi moving freely by the balcony of the area, the Barça can do even more damage that before.

Ter Stegen In goal; defence of four with Alba, Semedo, Hammered and Umtiti; centre of the field with Busquets and Rakitic/Paulinho and, a bit further up, Sergi Roberto/Iniesta, Leo Messi, Dembélé and Luis Suárez. Without place to doubts, an eleven more than competitive. It will be missing to see if it works.
