newgersy/ Will Barcelona return to 3-4-3 now that Messi is back?


Luis Enrique is faced with a choice now that his star personnel in the likes of Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique are expected to be back in the starting XI.
It isn't clear whether the Asturian boss will continue with the 4-3-3 on display against Granada on Sunday or if he will revert back to his 3-4-3 system that he has consistently used with great results in recent months.
Ever since the 4-0 defeat to PSG in the first leg of the Champions League on February 14th, Barcelona have played with three at the back, a change that has come as a much needed boost to an emotionally and physically fatigued side.
Luis Enrique has always sought out to be unpredictable, and the changes in system is a good way of achieving that aim.
Nonetheless, as with any decision, there are tradeoffs, and those that have the most to lose if Lucho decides on the 3-4-3 are the full-backs in the squad, namely Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba.
