Three “heavy” Barça, with their serious position …

He FC Barcelona he continues to alternate shows of great doubt – such as victory against Levante or tie against him Valencia– with more hopeful ones – such as the first half against Real society or the complete match against him Real Valladolid– and the sporting balance of these clashes leaves under control a few “heavyweights” who played a leading role at the beginning of this season with Ronald Koeman.

The first player with reasons to see his position in the threatened eleven is Sergio Busquets, whose performance this season is gray in line with what has been seen in recent years. The great game of Miralem Pjanic against Real Valladolid, in which he was seen very impregnated Frenkie de Jong, It may be the last step for the Catalan to end up giving up her position, either by playing with a double pivot or in a 4-3-3.

Another footballer who should be afraid of the worst is Philippe Coutinho, which is eaten by Pedram, 10 years younger than him. The Brazilian had a good start to the season, but only surrendered by playing as a midfielder. Since returning from injury, he has not had continuity and has shown problems adapting to other positions. On the other hand, the canary has become one of the team’s landmarks and Leo Messi’s best partner.

Another footballer who can’t be missed is Antoine Griezmann, who suffers a case similar to that of Philippe Coutinho: he plays well only when Ronald Koeman places him as a player with full freedom. The Frenchman has played few good games this season and, against Real Valladolid, his absence was not even noticed. In fact, Pedri and Leo Messi felt very comfortable without the French and with Martin Braithwaite forward to fix the power plants.

These three cases join one that has already taken place for some games: that of Clément Lenglet. The Frenchman returned to the title against Real Valladolid because Ronald Koeman wanted to play with three central defenders, but when he plays with only two, Ronald Araújo and Óscar Mingueza Looks like they’re next. What is clear is that with the Dutch coach, no one can relax.

Defendants of Ronald Koeman

The “sacrifice” of some players leads to the promotion of others and the truth is that there are many who take a step forward. Especially young people like Sergiño Dest or the already named Pedri, Ronald Araújo, Óscar Mingueza … Moreover, the unexpected appearance of Martin Braithwaite is also surprising in a good way. The eleven types of Ronald Korman currently bear little resemblance to the one that Barcelona painted at the beginning of the season.
