La Liga News Barcelona: Xavi’s Possible 4-3-3 Formation

In developing Xavi news, the renowned former Real Madrid great has been tapped as a replacement for the embattled Ronald Koeman as the main man in Camp Nou. Xavi, who was a former captain as well, has been connected with the Qatari club Al-Sadd since 2019.

With his successes in the Middle East stage, it has been expected that he will bring his excellence to Barcelona, a club he has experienced epic battles with since his playing days. He also vows to continue the policies to make Barca’s upcoming football match as in the days of Johan Cruyff and Pep Guardiola.

Formations to Shore Up Barca’s Offense

Cruyff and Guardiola’s influence can be seen in how Xavi plans to use the 4-3-3 and 3-4-3 formations in Barca, something he was familiar with during his time with Al-Sadd. When the 20/21 season came in, the player-turned-manager also frequented the 4-2-3-1 formation which transitioned into a 3-4-1-2 formation.

Perhaps it was a product of how Xavi played as a captain, but this shows his tactical prowess and flexibility. His ability to adjust thusly is integral for all great managers; and, as any Barca fan knows, they are hoping this talent translates to improving their standings in the La Liga table.

Exploring the Al-Sadd Success

Whatever formations Xavi employed during his time in Al-Sadd, it just shows the Guardiola influence. The football club’s center-backs were important as they were expected to pass and pass quite often; it wasn’t also just a pass, it had to be a pass that opened up the opportunity to score.

The full-backs and the wing-backs, meanwhile, were key in that they needed to be there when the transition between formations took place. As a manager, Xavi was on the look-out for players with the pace to be able to keep up with the speed of transition in this department.

Getting to Know the Squad

While many are expecting the return of Cruyffism to Camp Nou and Xavi’s valuable inputs, it remains to be seen how he will do this pending his familiarity with the squad. 12BET sportsbook afficionados believe that he will try the 4-3-3 formation from a starting point of view.

The 4-3-3 formation is said to be a formation using the high line and coupled with high pressing. Fullbacks will take an active part in building up gameplay, while midfielders will be doing their best to dominate possession of the football.
