10/12/2011 Real Madrid 1 FC Barcelona 3
Barcelona went to Santiago Bernabeu by not losing there in their previous 3 years and 5 games. But this time Real Madrid were 3 points clear and a game in hand. The pressure was definatley on Barcelona and Guardiola, people were also wondering if he goes with 3 or 4 man defence against Madrid, but the outcome was somewhere between it, as you can see here on this picture whcih shows the average position of Barcelona players during the game.
|When Barcelona needed to defend, he droped between the defence and made it a 4man defence, leaing Dani Alves furter forward.|
|He could also play just ahead of the back 3 and mark Benzema here, leaing Pique as the sweeper.|
|Here you can see that he plays in midfield and Dani Alves is up there, with Puyol covering his space, while Busquets plays in midfield.|
