Ronald Koeman decided to go out in search of the traced back against the Seville in Glass of the King with the same eleven that won to the hispalenses in LaLiga the past Sunday. The Dutch trainer no lon doubted and bet by the same eleven players that went through on of the sevillistas in Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán and that won by 0-2. An alignment with change of included system and with the absence of one of the 'heavy weights' of the staff.

Antoine Griezmann went back to be the victim so that the Barça could play in front of the Andalusians with the 5-3-2 or the 3-5-2 with which surpassed to the ones of Julen Lopetegui in the championship suspender belt. To play with a central more did fault that one of the forwards went to the bench and equal that occurred does some days, the sacrificed went back to be the ex attacker of the Athletic of Madrid.

Óscar Mingueza occupied the place that left free the forward of Macon to play at the side of Gerard Hammered and of Clément Lenglet. The canterano was the elected to give solidity to the saga and allow of this way that the two sides could shine more in offensive phase. Besides, play with three backwards is a great help for Sergio Busquets that suffers a lot to his back and that consistently causes that it suffer all the defence.

The presence of Leo Messi is innegociable and indisputable, by what accepting this change of system, Griezmann struggled against his fellow Ousmane Dembélé by a place in the eleven. After his big performance in the Pizjuán the Sunday, the one of Vernon won his presence in the Glass and therefore Koeman did not doubt in betting by him to the detriment of 'Grizzy', to the that gave him his second banquillazo consecutive.

Griezmann Follows without finding the course

It does only some weeks gave the impression that the French seemed to be piping the course. It marked several important goals, left good feelings in several parties and understood well with Leo Messi and with several mates. However, the Barça kept on being the same irregular team of always and at the end Koeman opted for giving a volantazo and test with the variant of three head offices and two carrileros with which already played some party in the first turn.

The partidazo of the Pizjuán against the Seville gave wings to this bet and therefore the Dutch did not doubt in going back to leave to the star of France in the bank. An important and very controversial decision, although if something has showed the preparador of Zaandam is that it knows to coexist with the controversy and that does not be used to to matter him what say or write of him. By all this, Antoine will have to win again the place in spite of his wage and of his condition of 'crack'.
