It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words and in this case the saying is true perfection. As you can see in the photo, the club made a great move in a set-pieces action, with almost all PSG players ending offside after a free kick.

The set pieces were one of the pending matters to improve for Barça and this season Luis Enrique and his assistant Juan Carlos Unzué could revert the situation:  14 goals scored from set pieces and only 5 conceded. The last one was on January 4 against Real Sociedad.

Such moves were already used in Barça B by Luis Enrique, as confirmed by the former player, Ilie Sanchez. The Barça TV journalist sent him the picture of the defense doing a step forward and Ilie said that "we usually used these and other strategy plays to try to control all facets of the game, attack and defense."
