The Barça team need to rekindle the flame of illusion before their fans after the image shown in the defeat (0-3) against Bayern München in the Champions League, where they did not shoot on goal.
Ronald Koeman has a difficult ballot because of how touched his image has been and the lack of confidence in his figure. In addition, it has important casualties such as Jordi Alba, Pedri González, Ousmane Dembélé, Ansu Fati, Sergio “el Kun” Agüero or Martin Braithwaite. In this context, we believe that eleven can be assimilated to the following in a 1-4-3-3 system:
The German goalkeeper began the season absent as he was recovering from his knee operation, but once he is ready, he is once again indisputable as has been customary in recent seasons.
The Spanish-Dominican left-back may be one of the exciting elements during the next month, since Jordi Alba will be out this time due to a muscle injury. It is time for Ronald Koeman to bet on an exciting youth squad like him.
The Uruguayan defender was the best outfield player in the continental commitment and continues to increase his hierarchy and presence on the pitch. Giving it continuity is presented as a key to maintaining defensive strength and continuing to build a center-back that can mark an era.
The Spanish center-back is another of the pillars of the future of the Barça project, who also comes more rested after the expulsion against Athletic Club and his consequent sanction against Getafe. He did not complete the clash against Bayern München for tactical reasons.
The right-back of American and Dutch nationality arrived injured from the national team break, but could already be on the bench in the Champions League. It generates more illusion than Sergi Roberto, with what could be another bet by Ronald Koeman in that sense.
A rival like Granada, who still do not know victory, and a situation like the current one in which courage was lacking, are key factors for Ronald Koeman to make an ambitious bet and place the youth squad in the pivot position instead of Sergio Busquets , despite being the captain.
The Dutch midfielder is a key figure in the midfield, having started all the games this year. Living with several homegrown players would also allow him to earn gallons by being the leader of the engine room and teaching the youngsters.
The Spanish midfielder has shown great dedication and hunger in the few minutes that he has added with the first team. The absence of Pedri González for vacations can allow him to enjoy an ownership before his fans before an undisputed cash like the canary returns.
The Netherlands international is the best attacker that the Barça team has at the moment, which makes it difficult for him not to start from the beginning. Against Bayern München he was not accompanied, but he was one of the few who did not stop trying.
The Austrian right winger is presented as the only option to give width on that side without an alignment with lanes. He entered very late against Bayern München, with the game very difficult shortly after the 0-2. An ownership can also generate a lot of illusion.
The Dutch striker suffered a lot on the day of his debut, since a match was planned on the counterattack and speed is not among his virtues. Against Granada, as a reference playing above, he has the opportunity to better show his worth and leave more positive feelings in his new hobby.
