Should Ronald Koeman play more defense-minded football on Tuesday? Let’s help the Dutchman pick the best starting line-up for the game as Champions League football returns and Barcelona match-up against their foreign nemesis Bayern Munich.
Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Araujo, Pique, Alba; Pedri, Busquets, De Jong; Demir, Memphis, Coutinho.
We believe it’s the most possible selection if Koeman decides to stick to the 4-3-3 formation.
Oscar Mingueza is clearly better than Sergi Roberto on the right while Yusuf Demir could help us with his great knowledge of the Austrian Bundesliga which may be compared to the German one in terms of style of play.
Philippe Coutinho has been impressive in training as he’s expected to start tomorrow as well.
Ter Stegen; Roberto, Araujo, Garcia, Alba; Pedri, Busquets, F. de Jong; Memphis, L. de Jong, Coutinho.
Pique was part of the 8-2 debacle and we may test a fresher center-back pairing tomorrow.
Summer addition Luuk de Jong is also said to be fit enough to start while Memphis could easily switch to the left or the right side.
Ter Stegen; Araujo, Pique, Garcia; Mingueza, Pedri, F. de Jong, Alba; Memphis, L. de Jong, Coutinho.
The 3-5-2 switch already saved Barca’s campaign last year – does it make sense to perform the trick again?
We have plenty of center-backs to form the trident at the back while Sergio Busquets could be dropped for the midfield to gain some needed pace.
