Barca field full La Masia midfield in Alaves win - 221 games after that happened last time in 2017

Ronald Koeman started a midfielder trio of Sergio Busquets, Riqui Puig and Ilaix Moriba in Barcelona's 5-1 La Liga win over Alaves on Saturday.

As Mundo Deportivo point out, that was the first time Barca lined up a full La Masia midfield since February 2017 when Busquets, Rafinha Alcantara and Andres Iniesta started in a 2-1 victory at Atletico Madrid.

No less than 221 games had passed since then.

It also should be mentioned that Koeman was rather forced to make a decision like that as the Dutchman deployed Frenkie de Jong at centre-back against Alaves due to the injury absences of Ronald Araujo and Gerard Pique.
