Embarrassingly falling a goal, FC Barcelona got back to beat UD Ibiza by two goals to one in the Copa del Rey last 32. Following is what we learned from the tie game.
Setien Once again had surprises up his sleeve and did deliberately changed the formation on this occasion
the new coach took out only one centre back in Clement Lenglet who was edged on either side by full backs Junior Firpo and Nelson Semedo. The Arthur-Riqui Puig-Frenkie de Jong trident not given an airing as listed, it was told that this was a 3-4-3 with Sergi Roberto, Ivan Rakitic, De Jong and Puig manning the midfield while Griezmann took La Masia fruits Ansu Fati and Carles Perez under his wing up top.
As the game got underway however, it seemed that Roberto was playing at right back and Semedo on the right wing.
The hosts stunned Barça by taking an early lead
Attacking the Blaugrana’s right flank and zipping by Roberto, Rai found Javi Perez in the box who then slotted past Neto into the Brazilian’s bottom left corner.
The locals going wild with their ‘game of the century’ off to the perfect start, Setien’s men were staring elimination in the face after just nine minutes.
