Football Manager 2023 Tactics - Xavi 4-3-3 Barca by Magicomonta / Won the Treble
Good evening guys

Today magicomonta presents the emulation of FC Barcelona by Xavi Hernandez.

Tactical analysis:

Construction: the team tries to start from the bottom in the first construction phase, implementing a 4 + 1 construction aimed at finding Sergio Busquets to start the maneuver. In conditions of a strong pressing opponent, however, Marc-André ter Stegen does not disdain the direct search for the tip with a long return, aimed at isolating the tip with the direct marker.

Development: one of the innovations following the subsequent management from Xavi to the previous one is that of a defender lined up as right-back, in this case Eric Garcia whose defensive tasks we will analyze), to arrange, once the possession is consolidated, with a 3-2-5 in which the right-back tightens becoming the “arm” of a 3-man defense and the left-back, Jordi Alba, gets up in the wing.

Finishing: the intention is to put as many men as possible in the finishing area and therefore we see that the two central midfielders often interchange positions going to occupy the half-spaces behind and on the sides of the tip. Even the left fielder, when Alba gets up, is centered in the left half-space. The amplitude to the right is given from to the right.

-Finalization on the weight of the attack is on the shoulders of the striker and on his movements the finalization phase of the team is based, ending up finishing or pocketing for the insertions of the midfielders talking in the strait.

Non-possession phase:

-First press: Barça implements a very high and continuous pressure with precise references to man that create pairs that are clearly visible across the board. In this context, as previously mentioned, it is interesting to note the task of Eric Garcia who in the phase of non-possession leaves the position of right-back and comes inside the field. The position of full-back destroyed in this phase is then covered by the side wing who retreats to dare cover.

Central area: Barcelona's 3-man midfield is extremely elastic, Busquets remains the reference blocked in front of the defense but the other 2 midfielders in both phases are very mobile.

The explanation of the FM tactic can be found in the video.
