Dembélé changes the landscape
He appeared when there was less than half an hour left and shook Barça. Not just because of his dribbling. Not just because of its speed, either. Unbalanced Ousmane Dembélé because he became a threat to the defense of Dynamo Kiev, who lived a quiet night.
So much so that the team Lucescu because he could not detect that figure that took over the right wing, opening the field of truth. Sergi tried it with Gavi, but, obviously, it was not the same.
And even the technician modified the attack because he located Ansu Fati as center forward while Memphis it was located on the left flank. But it was the French striker, who with his mobility and dynamism, woke up a team that was off, unable to scare Dinamo. I arrive Ousmane and he modified that dying landscape by providing speed and electricity. The goal was from Ansu, but Dembélé All changed.
Ter Stegen supports a frayed team
After the initial 20 minutes, Barça began to make mistakes in the construction of the game. Errors in the pass that were, in reality, invitations for Dinamo to unleash itself in attack, stepping on Ter Stegen’s area up to three times with the arrivals of Carlos De Pena and Shaparenko.
He forced decisive stops from the German goal in those minutes in which the team of Sergi Barjuan panicked because it frayed. Supported by Marc, who was key to keeping a clean sheet.
Return to the three centrals
Barça started with the orthodox 4-3-3 that he uses Sergi Barjuan. But in the second half he modified, and notably, the tactical suit, betting on a line of three centrals since he decided to delay Busquets to the axis, escorted first by Eric Garcia (right) and Lenglet (left).
In the first 45 minutes, ‘Busi’ did not come down at any time to look for the ball. In the second, yes, having already Araujo at his side due to the injury of the French central defender. The interim manager wanted to support the defensive structure, but ended up suffering from set pieces.
