Play with three head offices served against the Real Valladolid and Ronald Koeman wanted to give him continuity to the new tactical system to confront to the Eibar
Before Navidad, the FC Barcelona obtained a hopeful victory against the Real Valladolid that it was considered one of the more convincentes in what it goes of season. In the party against the picture pucelano, Ronald Koeman had decided innovar and bet by a system 3-4-2-1 with three central defences and two carrileros long to open the field. Something that had continuity against the Eibar.
In the last party of the FC Barcelona in this atypical 2020, the Dutch trainer decided to go back to play with three defences although, in this occasion, had to do it without two of his more important players: Leo Messi and Jordi Alba. The Argentinian star, that had recovered his best version in front of the Real Valladolid, rested against the Eibar, whereas Jordi Alba fulfilled cycle by five cautions.
In the duel post-navideño of the Camp Nou, Ronald Koeman bet by Antoine Griezmann and Junior Firpo like reliefs of the Argentinian and of the of L'Hospitalet. Curiously, the French there was cuajado his best parties like Barcelona when it did not coincide with Leo Messi on the terrain of game, whereas the Hispanic-dominican recovered this position of carrilero in defence of three that did him triumph against the Real Betis.
The case is that Ronald Koeman, in spite of what had said in room of press (affirmed that the 3-4-2-1 gave "more security backwards when having more people in the midfield between lines. We have seen a very serious team, very concentrated, have created besides a lot of opportunities, but do not know if I will keep or no this system"), followed betting by the new system, that worked him wonderfully when it premièred it.

In spite of that Ronald Koeman, after arriving, seemed very firm defending that the FC Barcelona had to play with a 4-2-3-1, already does some weeks that has opened to experience with more systems of game. Especially by the injuries and by the irregularity of the results of the team before agitating the coctelera, that have forced to the Dutch technician to look for solutions.
The first change of Ronald Koeman was to recover the mythical 4-3-3 in parties like the one of the Raise (with victory but a game very little convincente) and against the Real Sociedad (with a formidable improvement with regard to the duel against the 'granotas'). Afterwards it arrived the prick against Valencia, in a party in which it was missing depth, by what the Dutch technician innovó again against the Real Valladolid. After the good results in Pucela, repeated against the Eibar.
