Barça were looking for three more points against Leganés, and after the international break, Ernesto Valverde chose to be brave. In Butarque, the catalans played with Leo Messi, Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann together
The FC Barcelona has in front of himself two months of maximum requirement, and his first stop in the fight by the titles was in LaLiga. The Catalans landed in the championship of the regularity looking askance to a key commitment in the Champions, but with the obligation to win to keep in the leadership. After a stop of selections, only cost a victory in front of the colista to follow at the head of the classification.
Ernesto Valverde did not walk with detours in the visit to Butarque, and bet by a 4-2-3-1 to resolve the doubts. To the preparador extremeño were missing him some pieces to complete the eleven, and in front of the injuries and sanctions played it to him with a very offensive proposal to treat to defeat to the Leganés. The debate that initiated the past summer obtained a brief answer in the trip to the Spanish capital.
This training allowed to see to Leo Messi, Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann together in the eleven initial, that was headed by a forward of a lot of carats. In this system, the Uruguayan conserved his position of nine, for the Argentinian was the half tip and the two French delivered the sides, the right for the one of Vernon and the left for the one of Macon -perhaps the most difficult decision to understand-.
The good defence and the goal tempranero of the 'pepineros' forced to the culés to make some adjust, with the technician demanding more mobility to his and treating to add mordiente to his attack exchanging to the two Frenchmen. This gave wings to his team, that with the ex of the Borussia Dortmund very active in the left-handed profile began to generate occasions of greater level to treat to give back the tie to the marker.
The experiment worked half, what allows to take out conclusions for next parties. During a lot of minutes, the wall of Javier Aguirre caused a capital jam in the attack barcelonista, but with the reorganisation won something of control and was missing a connection that has to go winning to base of minutes. The inspiration did not accompany to the Barcelona, that had to resort to the balloon stopped to take out a victory of Madrid.
Neither right, neither left: The band is not for Griezmann
The one of Leganés was a duel of tactical revolutions for the Barça, that showed once again that the band is not place for Griezmann. Although the Catalans were far of his best version, the changes -first Arturo Vidal freed and Ivan Rakitic and afterwards Ansu Fati, with the Chilean of turn to the double pivote- certified that, to day of today, practically any one fits better in the systems that the one of Macon.
The start in left band turned him off, and his light no longer went back to shine neither in the right neither in the half tip, a fact that results worrisome. Of a forward that confessed that it does not know to dribble, can expect that it do not work hit to the line of cal, but when it approached to his zone of influence neither was notable. Each week in Barcelona repeats a dangerous conclusion, and is that anybody knows how fit to Antoine.
