Luis Enrique will arrive this afternoon to Madrid without having yet decided one hundred percent the team he thinks storm the Santiago Bernabeu.He will be watching a meeting be held with Leo Messi few hours before the game starts to learn firsthand their feelings, considering also that just came out of an injury that has kept him two months off the pitch and that comes short of match fitness as the coach himself admitted yesterday during the press conference.
If the decision were to take today, Messi would not be in the starting lineup. It would take too many risks for a very important for the team and player considering they are only three points at stake, aside from the inherent rivalry that carry all the classics.
However, everything is pending the meeting to be held Luis Enrique and the Argentine crack at the team hotel before leaving for the Santiago Bernabeu. The intent is to convince the coaching player to start on the bench and come out in the second half if necessary. A little bearing in mind what happened this season at the Calderon against Atletico Madrid, where the appearance of Leo in the second half was a ray of light to victory. But in any case we must remember that not from an injury but being unable to train all week with the team for international commitments with his selection and his second paternity.
If Messi finally enters the eleven Luis Enrique will have to come with a team of circumstances against Real Madrid, especially because all indications are that Ivan Rakitic not be in the team, as it also has just emerged from an injury soleus, recovering in record time because they spoke out for a month and two weeks is back already.
Obviously many changes the picture presented by the Barcelona at the Bernabeu will be conditioned by the more than possible casualties in the team Messi and Rakitic. If finally confirmed, it seems that Luis Enrique would have to change and reposition his men, especially in midfield. Mascherano would move its position, Sergio Busquets inside right recolocaría to slow the rush of Marcelo and Sergi Roberto could start to end, but dropping into midfield. The only theory that remain in its natural position would be Andres Iniesta. It would clearly camouflaged 4-3-3 to 4-4-2, with Neymar and Suarez in the attack, which has already proved a minujtos against Getafe and Villarreal. Another option not to change both the drawing up would Munir.
