Ousmane Dembélé has been playing for two consecutive games as a 'false 9' in a 3-5-2 or 5-3-2 system. The Frenchman scored both in Seville in the League and this Wednesday in the Cup, he is shining and could be the point that Ronald Koeman longed to find
Ousmane Dembélé Was the big protagonist of the FC Barcelona-Seville in the first compasses of party. The French was very active from the first minute of meeting and was in almost all the played of danger that created the culés in the first 15 minutes. Taking advantage of his position in the forward as 'false' 9', tried to take advantage of his speed to win the back to the defence sevillista whenever it could.
After a pair of shots and careers that did not finish in at all, the attacker controlled inside the area, drove to out and began to invent the one who would be the 1-0. After a pair of 'pisaditas' and amagos to find gap for the shot, the ex of the Borussia Dortmund soltó a brutal latigazo with the right from out of the area that was direct to the square of the goal of the hispalenses in the minute 12.
A golazo tremendo that brushed in a defence of way to door, but that did not leave to be less spectacular for that. it Was the start of the traced back that culminated Gerard Hammered and Martin Braithwaite a lot of minutes afterwards. However, it is evident that without the so much of the Frenchman the Barça there would be encarado the party of the same way and that the Seville could have lived much calmer of what lived the crash.
It was as it was, if something left clear Dembélé this Wednesday was that it could be this forward that carries so much time looking for Ronald Koeman. The technician asked in summer to Memphis Depay and insisted in him in January without luck. Although had to Braithwaite, the trainer of Zaandam wanted for his team a mobile tip, with desborde, quality, speed and ease to fall to the two bands. His compatriot had given him all this, but the case is that Ousmane also can it to him give.
Dembélé Is shining as 'false 9'
The French has played all his career like extreme by any one of the two bands and also like mediapunta, but could be as 'false 9' like pass to the following level. Although playing inside has fewer spaces to look for the one against one, that is his big quality, is a position in which it can take advantage of others of his big virtues: the shot with both legs, the game to the space and the speed.
As it showed in League against the Andalusians the past Saturday marking a goal, and as it went back to teach this Wednesday, his qualities do him be an unpredictable and very dangerous forward. It is so fast that any pass to the gap can turn into occasion of goal. And in case it was little with this, his skill with both legs and his powerful shot do him be even more dangerous in any one of these actions.
It is true that is not the plan that there was with the one of Vernon, but to fault of other resources as it could be Ansu Fati, this new role could be the best possible news for him and for the Barça. It sees him comfortable, involved in the game, more dangerous of face to door and with something more than fang that when it plays in band. It will be necessary to see if Koeman gives him continuity, but everything seems to indicate that in him could have found to his Depay.
