Barça's offensive shortcomings against Inter Milan for the Champions League were, in part, due to the low participation that Robert Lewandowski had and the team's difficulty in finding him
The fall of the FC Barcelona by Champions in front of the Inter of Milan went back to open the wound of the previous European disasters that has lived the club. Although it is a staff renewed, many of the footballers were the past campaign in Europe League still remember the occurred in front of the Eintracht Frankfurt, in one of the hardest defeats of the team of Xavi Hernández.
However, and shelving the referee's controversies, the Barcelona have showed an important offensive deficit when Robert Lewandowski does not appear in the commitment. In fact, in the only commitments where the Barça has not gone out victorious are precisely those in which the Pole does not mark (0-0 in front of the Ray Vallecano, 2-0 in front of the Bayern Munich and 1-0 against the Inter), what desvela a 'Lewandowski-dependency' that it can affect the development of the season.
The Catalans surpassed in almost all the appearances to the 'nerazzurri' but could not move this in the marker. Almost the triple of passes completed (703 to 286), a lot of greater quantity of corners (13 to 3) and a total command of the spherical (71.6% to 28.4%), although the result again was not favourable, partly, because the '9' did not appear and neither the Barcelona knew to find him.
Like this the things, the ones of Xavi will have to look for the three points home next Wednesday again in front of the Italians if they do not want to say him goodbye of premature form to the greater continental contest. It would be unacceptable for the institution change the Champions by the Europe League to fault of two dates, more still after the big investment that did the partners and the Managerial Board.
The Celtic as 'conejillo of Indian'
With everything on the table, will be the Celtic the one who will visit a Spotify Camp Nou that will be to the expectation of what will occur the next week in front of the Inter. You look them they will be on the technical body and in a Lewandowski that will owe no only be leading in front of the Galicians, but leave clear that keeps on being a footballer determinant in big stages and that is for big things with the elastic culé.
