Too many rounds to deal with Real society. Xavi Barça’s starting XI changed from top to bottom against Real society in the quarterfinals of Copa del Rey. Nothing to do with the line-ups against him Intercity and the Ceuta. The coach turned to the backbone of big games and repeated the eleven he lost to Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup played in Arabia.
The eleven consists of Ter Stegen; Araujo, Koundé, Christensen, Balde; Busquets, De Jong, Gavi, Pedri; Dembele and Lewandowski
In the end, the technician made a decision Ter Stegen for Inaki Pena. The only question is if Koundé either Araujo will occupy the right side or Gavi or Pedri the winger, playing 4-3-3 or 4-4-2. The confrontation against San Sebastián assumes the return of Araujoreserved before the Getafe. The defensive axis is for the solvent tandem Koundé-Christensenwith the bucket entering the area from the left sunriseholders in LaLiga.
What is not known is the distribution of midfielders. The formula can go through playing in 4-3-3. Frenkie de Jonganother one of those absent against Getafe, will join Busquets, Gavi and Pedri. One of these last two is the wrong left winger, like against Atlético or Real Madrid.
In the attack there are two areas. One for Lewandowski, the obligatory weapon reserved for the Cup due to its sanction of three games in LaLiga, and the one for dembelewhich has been convincing Xavi for a long time.
