Surprising tactical approach of Arsene Wenger this Tuesday night in front of the FC Barcelona. The French trainer posed a defensive party, with all his men by behind the central line going out quickly to the against. A form to play that it never had seen him to the British in Europe but that Wenger decided to test for the first time in this gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League.

The pressure during the first twenty minutes was almost asfixiante by part of the English, always, this yes, behind the centre of the field. Until the Barça achieved carburar and begin to combine, the venues were better on the green. However, the blaugranas (in this occasion of blue electrical) dominated the ball and brushed some percentages of possession sonrojantes.

The ones of Wenger, by his part, went out to the against quickly treating of pillar to his opponents with few touch and a lot of balloons in depth, at all that see with the football combinativo that always have made the londinenses. Alexis and Oxlade were the arrows of a team where to Giroud saw him too slow to follow the played of his. The technician left in the bench to a Walcott that aimed to title.

And whenever the ones of Luis Enrique recovered the ball, the eleven rival footballers expected them by behind the line of means, treating to occupy the spaces that always generate Iniesta and Rakitic in the half, and Messi, Suárez and Neymar in the last zone of the field. It seemed that it only was question of time that any of these genii achieved to connect to go up the first to the marker. And looking all this from the footpath, almost between plegarias, an Arsene Wenger that betrayed his principles.
