I’m the first to admit that when I seen our line up I expected us to get beat quite easily which probably explains why I’m not a top level football manager. Conte got his tactics spot on last night. Flooding the centre of the park and dropping off Barca instead of pressing them and being pulled out of position in our own half, closed all the gaps that Messi & Co. look to play on. We were so close to executing it perfectly. It could so easily have been 3-0 going to Camp Nou which is the most frustrating thing. Yet, I feel confident Antonio will have us set up and well drilled over there.
We beat a far better Barca side there with 10 men, we just need to hope we can pull it off again. COYB!
