It saw in the Glass and saw again in Champions. It is clear that the absence of Leo Messi changes the plans of the FC Barcelona, but when it is not on the lawn the drawing is purer. Without the Argentinian, the Barcelona are used to to present a training 4-3-3
By second consecutive occasion, Leo Messi has started a party of Champions seeing the action from the bench, with Ernesto Valverde dosificando to his star by the complicated commitments that expect him to the FC Barcelona. It is obvious that his drop has a big impact in the plans of the Catalan group, but lately is leaving a curious symptom.
And it is that without the Argentinian on the lawn, the drawing of the Barcelona is purer, recovering the classical 4-3-3 that the Txingurri has separated temporarily to give back the solidity to his team. With Ousmane Dembélé lesionado and the need to approach to the '10' to the goal, his intentions are to armour the centre of the field and give freedom to the forward, something that reaches better with a 4-4-2.
Could see in the Glass and has repeated in Champions, in which Luis Suárez -or Paco Alcácer against the Real Murcia-, goes back to be the reference in the tip and his companions plant to his sides. With the absence of Leo Messi, the room of machines of the Barça loses something of continuity in the creation but wins in verticality, combining played longer with some chispazos of his midfield players.
It is not the first time that occurs in what it goes of course, but in the duel of the Camp Nou against the Sporting Jon Aspiazu, assistant of Ernesto Valverde, has seen again the party far of the bench, in a high position in the terracing. One of the answers to his change of position can be precisely the modification in the system, of the that can appreciate the operation from up and that it could contribute information very useful to the technician extremeño.
