A Barcelona two-sided. Is what is clear from this start to the season in which the machinery barca still hisses , lack of the lubricant that allows the lace of her pieces in the matches that take place away from the Camp Nou. If at home, the catalans are a roller , as shown by the double 5-2 against Betis and Valencia, as visitors suffer from several shortcomings that feed serious doubts about the possibility of achieving the ambitious objectives that have been marked. Neither the investment made generates some optimism before a start disappointing with a defeat in San Mamés (1-0) and draws in The Sadar (2-2) and Dortmund (0-0). Negative results in which the greatest concern are the sensations transmitted. Summed it up by Ernesto Valverde in Germany: "We have suffered much, we must recognize it. They came with more danger.
We lacked depth in the final meters and we have not had as many chances as them. The scale has been unbalanced and has balanced our goalkeeper. We are going in the games away from home." And ratified it Griezmann stark form: "we have Not pulled to door and they are things which must improve".
In defense of Barcelona has several mitigating circumstances, like the plague of injuries that have plagued the workforce, especially in the attack phase, that have prevented the participation of Luis Suárez, Dembélé and Leo Messi . Or the lack of adaptation of the new signings like De Jong or Griezmann, although the outlay for them (close to 200 million euros) requires them to have an immediate performance that has not been given. In fact, the French has only shone sporadically (against Betis) when he was obliged to assume responsibility for the offensive team, and the Dutch have been harmed by the manual of Valverde and the location in which the technician has made him play. is "We have to improve" , recognized Arthur Melo. And love gives you the reason. You need to improve the Barcelona in effectiveness, something that is linked to the creation of the game. is Luis Suárez has more than four years without scoring away from home in Europe and Griezmann has only been able to score against Betis at home. Ansu Fati has had to assume a role that does not correspond to it by the youth but the recovery Messi opens up a mystery about his promising future.
"I Think we have had sometimes very clear, we weren't well-organized . The rival has done very well and it is difficult to avoid their occasions with their quality. I am happy that in the end we got a point here", summed up Ter Stegen visibilizando another of the weak points of Barcelona, its fragility, defensive, and the immense revenue which they offer from their mistakes. Difficulty to play the ball out from the back, to overcome the pressure of rival and non-grant times, something patent in San Mamés, The Sadar and Dortmund . The Barcelona has a new opportunity this weekend in Granada , where you will have an added difficulty after the injury confirmed Jordi Alba, who will be sidelined for between two weeks and ten days for an injury in the femoral biceps of the left leg. It will be a chance to see it in action at Junior Firpo , signed to replace the side-and that in Dortmund was in the stands, dismissed by Valverde.Updated Date: 19 September 2019, 11:01
