Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández is showing from his arrival to the FC Barcelona that the system is not the most important of his 'libreto'. In spite of that landed in the Camp Nou with the vitola to be the greater lover of the 4-3-3 classical of the Barça, in two of the cuartro meetings that has headed to the Barcelona has used another training. The technician egarense used the 3-4-3 against Benfica and Villarreal, adding a tie and a victory.

On the other hand, with the 4-3-3 the picture barcelonista surpassed to the RCD Espanyol in the debut of the trainer and fell against the Real Betis does some days. Therefore, up to now, with the numbers in the hand, the system of three head offices has given better results. However, at all of this wants to say that it go to decant by one or another for the 'final' of Munich that have the Catalans this Wednesday in Champions League.

The Barcelona probably goes to need win to the Bayern to be in eighth of final and Xavi will have to decide which training will approach more east complicated triumph. The true is that apparently up to now the team has left improve feelings with the 3-4-3, but to play against the muniqueses could be more useful go out with a more natural system in which the bands are protected and covers at all times.

The picture of Julian Nagelsmann is used to to play with pure extremes and two offensive sides, by what go out with three head offices and two carrileros could not being the best option to defend to the germanos. Nevertheless, also it is necessary to say that the Eintracht of Frankfurt, that usually plays with a 3-4-3, won in October to the ones of the Baviera by 1-2. It is necessary to say, clear is, that the Glasner have this more studied training and learnt that the Barcelona.

A system that 'help' to Dembélé

Xavi goes to have to decide between this Tuesday and this Wednesday with which form to play goes to be able to do him more damage to the Bayern in attack without neglecting to the team in defence. Besides, also it will be important to discover which training will take out more split of Ousmane Dembélé, that is definitely the most dangerous player of the Barça right now. Many of the options of the blaugrana go through the feet of the French, that will be headline and that it will have to throw of the car.

Taking into account all this, an eleven that it could take out party of the Frenchman and that it could put in difficulties to the Germans would be the following: Ter Stegen; Dest, Hammered, Araújo, Alba; Busquets, Of Jong, Nico; Gavi, Dembélé and Depay. Without Abde, that is not inscribed for the Champions, Gavi could go out as 'false extreme' by left, with 'Dembouz' in right and Memphis up in the 4-3-3. This would be a way to be able to control the ball and take out party to the bands. It will be necessary to see if Xavi also sees it like this or if it decides to bet by the 3-4-3.
