Fresh from the injury, with the right to recover match fitness without time, but Leo Messi will be in the field of Real Madrid from 18:15 on Saturday. They will last 56 days from your injuryagainst UD Las Palmas . In recent days, its evolution has been particularly positive and the best forecasts have been fulfilled: but it will not be one hundred percent (at the end of the day, takes almost two months without competing, since I was injured on September 26) The Argentinian star will be in Madrid. The only question is whether Messi will start or, conversely, will start on the bench to act as a lever in the second half.
This will mark the tactics of Luis Enrique. If Messi holds the Asturian technical bet on the classic 4-3-3 with Leo, Luis Suarez and Neymar in the trident attack, midfield leaving the three ‘healthy’ means at its disposal: Sergi Roberto, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta .In defense, therefore Mascherano could accompany Pique in the center, with Dani Alvesand Jordi Alba on the sides. This would be the ‘A’ plan now.
If Leo Messi is finally deputy, Luis Enrique has two options in mind:
- For one, it replaces by another striker Messi without changing the classic 4-3-3. In this case, Munir would have more numbers to play Sandro Ramirez.
- The alternative without Messi is playing a 4-4-2 , with Sergi Roberto in false rightmost position and helping the midfield to form Sergio Busquets, Mascherano and Iniesta. At the front Luis Suarez and Neymar would remain, as we saw during 20 minutes against BATE Borisov .
It remembers that problems Rakitic Croatian -the could sit on the bench, but his physical condition prevented him from playing in the Bernabeu input forcing Luis Enrique to speculate on the possibility of moving Mascherano in midfield. In this case, the vacancy ‘Jefecito’ defense would occupy Vermaelen , although it could not rule out Bartra or Mathieu.
