If somebody thought that Luis Enrique would encircle to the strategy that followed against the Manchester City in the first big party of the season, made a mistake. In that party of 19 October the Asturian technician bet in Champions League by an eleven with three head offices, including to Samuel Umtiti beside Javier Mascherano and Gerard Hammered, with the Argentinian escorado to the right band and Jordi Alba like carrilero left-handed. 

In this first Classical against the Real Madrid, however, "Struggle" has been more conservative when situating the traditional 4-3-3 on the terrain of game, with Javier Mascherano and Gerard Hammered like head offices and Sergi Roberto like right-handed side, following the tonic usual in the last days and in spite of the recovery of Samuel Umtiti, the one who already had of minutes in Glass of the King in front of Hercules.

The another big surprise in the alignment of the Barcelona was the no inclusion of Andrés Iniesta, already recovered from does days of his injury of knee, when thinking Luis Enrique that a party of similar intensity would not be the best way that the Barcelona captain returned to the lawn, with the danger to be able to recaer in the injury or see resentful.

The case is that "I Struggle" bet by a midfield player that seems to have planted like his "ace in the sleeve" whenever it can not have Andrés Iniesta, André Gomes. The Portuguese has won the battle with Burn Turan, Rafinha Alcántara and Denis Suárez and is the usual left interior when the manchego can not form on the terrain of game.

In any case, expects that so much Andrés Iniesta like Samuel Umtiti can have of minutes in the second half of the Classical, always in function of which was the result and the needs of the team blaugrana in this moment.
