    Dembele will be on a bench.

    Midfield: 1. Busquets 2. Rakitic 3. Arthur/Rabiot/De Jong/Rafinha/Gomes etc
    Coutinho-Busi-Rakitic Dembele-Suarez-Messi

    we survived with Iniesta, Rakitic and Busquets in midfield so we damn sure are going to survive with those 2 and another one.

    The problem is that Rakitić looks quite a lot worse in 4-3-3 recently than in 4-4-2 (unless he plays CDM).

    Reached Wc finals with 433, being one of the best cms.
    Even though, he didn't have to play against parked buses in tight spaces.
    And he was allowed to hoof long balls, start counters and similar.

    At Barca, our players are supposed to slow down with passes until the opponent parks two buses around the box.
    Then our possession game in tight spaces may start...

    In Croatia he has 9 fighters playing alongside him and he is among weakest ones. In Barca he is often alone in this task and overwhelmed.

    Exactly. Also, the Croatian forwards run into space, unlike Suarez and Messi.

    Suarez runs into space all the time. You can fault him for a lot of things, but that isn't one of them.

    But what does this do? His touch is mostly bad and we waste attacks.

    That really wasn't the point. You claimed he doesn't move into space, while he so obviously does.

    This is my point we survived last year, by playing more organized but not aesthetically pleasing football. We need to continue to evolve especially as the CL will be one of the main priorities this year. To win in Europe i think we need more dynamic players who are also technically good in the midfield.
