The squad list hasn’t yet been . It will be official today after training. Our new coach wants to adjust some details and see if any changes are necessary. For now, this would be my XI. .
The first Setien’s XI has to be a confirmation of everything he’s been talking about and his philosophy. We may see many rotations in the first matches of Quique Setién. No one has their position secured.. We start with Ter Stegen. Although Barça hasn’t yet posted the Squad List the German goalkeeper has completed the last training with the team and everything seems to indicate that he is ready for his return. We all missed Marc-André. .
Now we have to take into account the formation. Something so unpredictable. There are many possibilities starting with Setién's favorite: 3-5-2. It could also be considered a 3-4-3. But I think that, based on the players we have, a 4-3-3 is the best option. With Setién’s arrival another of the things I want to see is the Semedo’s progress. This coach loves fast full-backs and I think the Portuguese will have the confidence he didn't have with Valverde.. In the midfield we have De Jong's suspension. Point to consider. Arthur, like Ter Stegen, has trained with the team and seems to be healthy to play. I would like to see him just the first half to not risk him. I don't see it impossible for Vidal to play as a starter. Despite not having the style, Setién already worked with Carvalho which is very similar to the Chilean. Finally RIQUI PUIG. I know that Setién will start him. It would be the perfect warning for players who believe they have secured a position. .
In the attack its clear that Messi and Griezmann will play. I would like to see Leo Messi as ‘false 9’ and Griezmann in the left wing being having more responsibilities without Suárez. Finally I have a doubt. Carles vs Ansu. I would put Ansu in a situation where the team would like to play more in the center. But this time I choose Pérez. We need a player to open spaces and be fully playing in the band with a ‘false 9’ system.
