The FC Barcelona goes to have to do the best party of the season to happen to semifinals of Champions League. Neither Real Madrid, neither Athletic of Madrid, neither Seville, neither Inter of Milan, neither Naples neither any another rival to the that the culés have confronted this campaign are to the level of a Bayern of Munich that right now gives fear. The Germans are playing well, are marking a lot of goals and physically are one or two points above the majority of his rivals.

By all these reasons, the Barcelona know that they will have to give the best of himself this Friday if they want to follow dreaming with the League of Champions. But with you win them and the illusion that there is in the barcelonismo will not suffice and Quique Setién has in mind a plan to counter to the Bavarians. The technician barcelonista is conscious that for the time being his team is underneath of the of Have-Dieter Flick and thus it could change the system for this Friday.

The santanderino has changed of training from January in crowd of occasions and according to the newspaper 'Sport' will go back to face up to it the muniqueses. The Barça has played with a 3-5-2, with a 4-4-2, with the classical 4-3-3 or with a 4-3-1-2 that worked wonderfully in Villarreal. This time, the ex technician of the Betis considers that to be able to compete against the Bayern the ideal system is the 4-4-2 with four midfield players and two forwards.

In this case, andl victim in the leading would be Antoine Griezmann, that recovered to play in front of the Naples, but that is not to his best level. The French was of the most toneless against the napolitanos and hardly had incidence in the game. By this reason, the Frenchman would remain in the bench and in his place would go out Arturo Vidal, that was not in the turn of eighth by sanction. Also it would go back to the eleven Sergio Busquets after his sanction to form midfield with the Chilean, Frenkie of Jong and Sergi Roberto.

Everything indicates that Setién has practically decided the eleven of these chambers and if it does not happen at all while the only changes will be the already mentioned. In defence will play the same that in front of the ones of the Campania: Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet and Jordi Alba. On the other hand, Roberto and Of Jong would be still in the half after the good performance that gave recently. In the forward would keep Luis Suárez and Leo Messi, with a lot of freedom for the Argentinian, that despreocuparía of the defence with this training.

The pros and contras of this system

Play with four midfield players more Messi, that is one more when low to receive, the Barcelona could dominate the balloon and control more to a Bayern that physically is upper. At least this is what believes the míster and therefore it will take out this system doing without a forward. To the culés saw them tired in the second part against the Naples and the Italians dominated in the seconds 45 minutes, something that against the germanos can not allow, since they yes could punish to the Barça.

The main problem to play with four means could be to the hour to close the bands, since the ones of the Baviera are used to to play a lot by the sides. Gnabry And Eat are two puñales from the extremes and Alphonso Davies can be mortal adding from backwards. Besides, Joshua Kimmich will play in the right-handed side and this will improve this profile. Sergi Roberto, that is accustomed to do these helps in his side, Of Jong and Vidal will have to have this very in account. While this sucede, Messi will have to throw of the team in attack for infligir damage to the defence of the Bayern, that is probably his only weak point.
