The FC Barcelona has gone back to fall in League of Champions. This time in front of the Inter of Milan, in a party that launched several controversies on the table and that leaves to the Barcelona with the obligation to win the next three commitments of phase of group to follow alive in the maximum competition to level of clubs in Europe.

However, further of the result and of the different conditionings that there was in Giuseppe Meazza, also is necessary to analyse fail them that had Xavi Hernández in his approach in front of the 'nerazzurri'. The first is the conservative system with which went out the egarense, with Marcos Alonso like carrilero and Raphinha by the left band, what takes him off prominence to the Brazilian to the not having the profile to finish to door with comfort.

Added to this, there was not any tactical modification after the (1-0) previous to the rest although the team was not answering in front of the good mark of the Italians. The presence of Ousmane Dembélé by the right side did not give fruits and the dynamics was repetitive, with constant centres of Sergi Roberto without any type of dangerousness. An exchange of band between extremes was the correct to increase the occasions of goal, but the movement never arrived.

In fact, in the final stretch of the commitment Xavi did not add pieces in attack but positional spares, giving him gone out to Gavi by Franck Kessié instead of using to Ferran Torres to add people in the area. The formality was very slow and the culés lacked clear opportunities further of all the controversy that there was with an arbitration that, again, leaves portrayed to the UEFA.

Lewandowski, disappeared

Finally, the little participation that had Robert Lewandowski was determinant taking into account that it is the maximum artilleryman of the club. Although the firmness and defensive solidity of the Inter was worthy to admire, the true is that the Catalans have showed along the season that possess the necessary arms to open any defence. To the Pole did not arrive him balloons and was one of the causes by which the Barcelona went back to close a European night for the forget.
