FC Barcelona Left Side Attacking Option

FC Barcelona have a lot of exciting attacking players, like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Phillippe Coutinho, but one source of their attacking threat comes from a less talked about source, full back Jordi Alba.

While Messi and co steal the headlines, it should be noted that a lot of good attacking work by Barca is done down that left hand side of the pitch with Alba the main focus and often the architect of many goals for those more high profile names.

With the wider of the midfield and forward players often tucking inside, that allows the space for Alba to roam up and down that left touchline, as we have illustrated in this Globall Coach animation below.
