Although in front of the Raise did not play this Thursday neither Leo Messi neither Luis Suárez, to those who Ernesto Valverde gave rest thinking in the following day of LaLiga Santander 2018-19, can say that one of the members of the 'MSDC' went back to 'wet' to give life to the FC Barcelona in the eliminatory of eighth of final of the Glass of Rey.

The Barça fell defeated by 2-1 in the Ciutat of València, but the penalti annotated with cold blood by Philippe Coutinho serves to the Barcelona group to trust the traced back of face to the party of next week in the Camp Nou, where will do lacking to improve the intensity and the performance to advance to the following round of the tournament of the KO.

The case is that, with the goal of Coutinho in the Ciutat of València -already has marked four goals in this stadium since it plays in the Barça-, between Leo Messi, Dembélé, Luis Suárez and the Brazilian add 50 goals in 28 official parties this season 2018-19, what leaves clear the dependency that has the Barça of his 'four fantastic' to resolve the parties in the plane goleador.

Leo Messi has been author of 22 goals, Luis Suárez of 12, Ousmane Dembélé of 10 and Philippe Coutinho of 6 in what it goes of course. They are the four maxima goleadores of the Barcelona in what it goes of season 2018-19, although Gerard Hammered follows very near of 'Cou' when adding 5 targets in all the competitions, some very good figures for the Barcelona head office.

It expects that in the next dates Coutinho recover his best version and follow marking goals, whereas Luis Suárez and Dembélé will have to follow the same of enchufados to second to Leo Messi like main reference of the team. This yes, the most likely is that they continue doing it separately and no the four in the same alignment, what would generate some disequilibriums in defence.

And it is that to see them together would have to happen two things. The first, that Ernesto Valverde decided to bet by Philippe Coutinho in the position of left interior, that in fact was the main idea of Robert Fernández when it decided ficharle. In this case, there would be gap for three forwards, that would be the Uruguayan, the Argentinian and the French.

Change of system to favour to the 'MSDC'?

The second stage that could give to see beside the póker of 'cracks' of the Barcelona is a change of system, happening to a 4-2-3-1 that Ernesto Valverde already had used in the Athletic of Bilbao, and that also put in practice in the second time of the duel of the Supercopa of Spain in front of the Seville of this same season 2018-19.

In that occasion, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic planted in the double pivote and left to the 'MSDC' by in front. Philippe Coutinho acted like left extreme, Ousmane Dembélé like right extreme, Leo Messi of mediapunta and Luis Suárez like reference.

All understood very well and, although it was complicated that they go back to coincide like headlines, showed that they are effective. An attack of luxury, definitely, that sure that would leave split with a lot of goals and a big show for the fans.
