Busquets, Vidal and Rakitic operated as midfielders and Ansu and Jordi Alba gave breadth and depth on the sides. With Messi and Griezmann in the interior corridors, the structure in attack resembled a 1-3-5-2 or 1-3-3-4, depending on the height of Ansu and Jordi Alba. Barcelona was an expansive team from side to side —42.8 meters wide– and exploited its superiority inside with the football ascendant of Messi and the finesse in the first touch of Griezmann, improved by intervening with more continuity in central places. The supports of both, different in the way of doing them, generated the space for the entrances from behind Vidal or Rakitic or the ruptures from the wings of Ansu or Jordi Alba. No movement that was not made with Valverde, although there was a greater insistence on this type of play. The total dominance of the ball, with a possession quota greater than 82%, also specified the Barca’s will to have everything under control. Sergi Roberto, Piqué and Umtiti accompanied the medulla and there were no significant cracks that served Granada to articulate the counterattack. Between the three they stole up to nine balls in the center of the field, data that includes their activation in intermediate areas. Barcelona did not split and this is a positive principle for Setién. Their teams tend to run badly backwards … Do not they are made revolutions in just four days, except with Messi in the field, figure that everything happens and will happen in this Barcelona. There was no time for big changes, but for expose some ideas different that must still be perfected. Setién guaranteed that his team would “play well” and anticipated a change of drawing. In both things, with details to clarify, he fulfilled his staging against Granada.The balloon systemIt was the main novelty in Barcelona. Setién ordered a line of three – Sergi Roberto, Piqué and Umtiti – in the offensive construction, which kept both the exit and the situations in the opposite field. During his career, the Cantabrian coach has always used provisions that would include three players, either leaning on three centrals, going down to the middle center or opening one of the interiors. The particular conditions of Sergi Roberto, a midfielder converted to lateral, allow him to employ him in that alternative double role. In the defensive phase, he assumed his usual side function. Pressure and recoveryNaturally, the change in scheme influenced the attack-defense transition. With three players on the last line, Busquets could launch with more courage. The middle center retains its decisive status in this aspect of the game. His reading is usually adequate and could lead the recovery strategy so high in Barcelona —44.2 meters away from your goal-. Busquets was closer to the Granada area than its own, well escorted by Vidal and Rakitic. Barcelona reorganized with four back in contexts in which Granada exceeded the first pressure. He was neat, serious and together, admitting hardly any chances to the set of Diego Martinez, who signed five shots. The best opportunities of the rival derived from errors in the circulation at the exit of Barcelona as it happened in the shot to the stick of Eteki. The goal to zero contained Setién and a proposal that incorporated different nuances in tactical development. Although the revolution is always Messi.
