The reconversion of Marcos Alonso, the key for Piqué not to be a starter again

The FC Barcelona defeated 3-0 to Villarreal in a new day of LaLiga, a key game to get out of the bad dynamics that the team dragged from the previous week. And one of the keys to victory was Marcos Alonso’s game, in a new role within Xavi Hernández’s system.

The Spaniard played as a left central player in Xavi Hernández’s 4-3-3 formation alongside Jules Koundé and Jordi Alba as left back. His match was quite good, considering that he was facing a rival that does a lot of damage in transitions with pieces like Nicolás Jackson, Arnaut Danjuma, Yéremy Pino and Alejandro Baena.

The reconversion of Marcos Alonso, Xavi’s key so that Piqué is not a starter

Marcos Alonso finished the game with three interceptions (the most from FC Barcelona), the one who won the most duels (the one from the Blaugrana team) and the second with the most interventions with the ball. “He can adapt, he played a great match. He has the conditions to go into space, he has the ability to win individual duels, he goes well with the ball and he’s also left-footed, which is great for us. Marcos has a good level”, stated Xavi Hernández post match.

The continuity of the Spaniard in this role makes him the fifth option in the rotation of defenders for the Blaugrana team after Araujo, Koundé, Eric García and Christensen. And it also distances Gerard Pique from having the chance to play as a starter again, taking into account that he was one of the main players after the games against Inter Milan and Real Madrid. A new variant for Xavi Hernández.
