It's going to be very interesting to see how Ronald Koeman would set up his starting XI with these two stars.

In this article, we'll be looking at 2 potential options the Dutch tactician could use when these two players return to the squad.

Check it out below:

Option A

The first option available for Ronald Koeman’s side is to play with the 4-3-3 formation with Marc Andre Ter Stegen keeping his place in the goal.

Ronald Araujo and Gerard Pique could form a shield for the German goalie with Jordi Alba and Sergino Dest keeping their places on the defensive flanks.

In midfield, the trio of Frenkie De Jong, Sergio Busquets, and Pedri Gonzalez could still keep their places.

As for the attack, Sergio Aguero will undoubtedly be the main striker. Ousmane Dembele and Memphis Depay could compliment him from the right and left wings respectively.

On paper, this attack looks quite scary already.

Here's an illustration of the possible lineup below:

Option B

A second option available for the Catalan giants is a situation whereby Koeman decides to play with a 3-5-2 with Ter Stegen still keeping his place in the goal.

Clement Lenglet, Eric Garcia, and Oscar Mingueza could form the defensive back-three.

As for the midfield compositions, Alejandro Balde and Ousmane Dembele could be used as wing-backs with Coutinho, Frenkie De Jong, and Gavi occupying the central-midfield positions.

Barca's No.10 Ansu Fati could form an attacking partnership with veteran striker Sergio Aguero up front.
