I was reading an article FC Barcelona posted on their twitter account (https://www.fcbarcelona.com/football/first-team/news/2017-2018/barca-valverde-style-fcbarcelona) on how they've been playing recently under Valverde.
Barcelona are lining up in their typical 4-3-3 or 4-1-2-2-1 with Messi given more of a free role through the middle with Deulofeu and more recently Dembele playing more on the right than on the left.
The wingbacks, in this case, Jordi Alba and Nelson Semedo are running up and down the flanks giving the team some width.
Sergio Busquets keeps his deep position on attack and on defence he slots in between the two centrebacks, Andres Iniesta still pulls the strings in the midfield with Ivan Rakitic providing more of an attacking support while still being solid on defence.
On defence they have Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti playing an extremely high line wich sometimes goes over the halfway line.
They are also pressing relentlessly to recover possesion as quickly as possible.
So my initial ideal lineup was this
Goalkeeper (defend) - roll it out, distribute to centrebacks
WBR - Complete Wing Back (attack)
DCR - Ball Playing Defender (defend)
DCL - Ball Playing Defender (defend)
WBL - Complete Wing Back (attack)
DM - Deep Lying Playmaker (defend)
MCR - B2B (support)
MCL - Advanced Playmaker (support)
AMR - Inside Forword (support) - sit narrower
AMC - Advanced Playmaker (attack) - get further forward, roam from position, move into channels
STC - Deep Lying Forward (support) - roam from position
TIs - Retain Possesion, Shorter Passing, Play Out Of Defence, Work Ball Into Box, Look For Overlap, Play Narrower, Much Higher Defensive Line, Close Down Much More, Low Crosses
Will update after I finish pre-season with some more screenshots and how the team got on in terms of results and actually playing the way I want them to play. Any criticism is appreciated!! Cheers!
P.S. This is my first analysis/go at a tactical recreation if anything is out of place or needs more info feel free to tell me.
