Quique Setién liked what he saw in San Mamés despite the result against and maintained a similar bet, with two strikers and a strengthened midfield
Far of the image offered in the first parties of Quique Setién in the bench culé, the FC Barcelona attained in Saint Mamés against the Athletic Club -in spite of remaining deleted of the Glass of Rey- a control of the game with sense, with occasions of danger and avoiding that the rival generated them. A goal of Iñaki Williams in the discount tumbó all the work made, but the feelings were good.
In Basque earths, Setién had opted by important changes. The most evident was that the culés, in spite of that kept the 4-3-3 posicionalmente, only went out with two forwards: Ansu Fati and Leo Messi. His companion was a fourth midfield player like Sergi Roberto, that went a big support in the room of machines and that adapted well in the right band.
It is clear that to Setién liked him what saw against the Athletic, since it repeated a very similar system against the Real Betis, although with some modifications. The most important were in the left-handed side, in which Junior Firpo substituted to Jordi Alba overloaded of minutes, and Arturo Vidal, that seems to be recovered of his annoyances in the knee and that relieved to Ivan Rakitic.
Besides, Setién followed with the rotations in the forward. Against the Athletic Club, Antoine Griezmann began in the bench. In Benito Villamarín, however, the French was the companion of Leo Messi and was Ansu Fati the one who was not present in the eleven. The bet of Sergi Roberto as 'false right extreme' kept and the one of Reus repeated titularity.
Emerson and Aleñá, headlines in the Betis
By his part, Rubi bet in his eleven headline by two footballers with future in the Camp Nou. The first is Emerson, right side Brazilian that is showing his good ways like verdiblanco. In a year and half, is very possible that already sight of Barcelona, although the pact is that it will be still in Benito Villamarín until it finish the period of cession, only cancelable in return of a penalty.
Also it is necessary to do special attention to Carles Aleñá, that left yielded to the Andalusian group the past month of January until final of season. The Catalan had few minutes in the Camp Nou and is fogueando in Seville, but is very likely that next summer go back and have an important paper in the team of Quique Setién.
