The latest presentations by FC Barcelona have set off alarm bells and put the focus on several players... but also on the lack of functioning of the team. The Blaugrana come out very 'touched'

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona had an opportunity of gold to concretise his classification to the eighth of final of the Champions League, for the first time from the 2020/2021. They needed to win a point in front of the Shakhtar, only. The history seemed 'simple', in paper, but in the practice has been disappointing. A cumulus of errors, desaciertos and the absence of a clear idea of what do, in spite of the one thousand corrections, leave to the culés touched and in the focus. They are many the distinguished after the presentation in Hamburg, but also in the last week.

Robert Lewandowski, leadership (and goals) desdibujado

It comes to recover of an injury and needs patience, but carries two titularities in which the contribution has been invalid. Against the Real Sociedad happened unobserved and abandoned the terrain of game, very soon, as 'warning'. Had the opportunity to claim in Champions League, but has been all the contrary. It signed a very debatable performance, without hardly kick in all the party and has given continuity to his series of six parties without marking. The team is not him finding and hanging centres does not arrive to any place, but 'Lewy' neither is fine to the hour to impose to the rival head offices neither generating he same opportunities.

Oriol Romeu, without solutions in the medullary

It does not have 'been' since Frenkie of Jong fell lesionado. It has lost the spark that showed in his first parties with the elastic Barcelona and remembers to the 'worse' moments of Sergio Busquets with the slowness that prints when they need swift transitions. In the Reale Sand remained in the bench and went back to the titularity in Hamburg (60' of game). Yes it hit in what to passes refers , but with a 'mania' for ralentizar to the Barça that prejudices more than the account. It lost too many balloons (6) and was not able to cover all the parameter that corresponded him.

Ferran Torres, without bitten

It expected much more of Ferran in the last two presentations. Although it is a player that desmarca and tries to give mobility in the team, his contribution is being minimum and the Barça needs that it translate the good feelings in goals, of urgent way. Against the Shakhtar saw infected of the passivity of the team and signed an insufficient presentation. The reaction has to arrive him prompt, because it confronts to have opportunities to dropper (again).

Joao Félix and a worrisome series

Against the Shakhtar, signed his tenth party without being able to annotate a goal. Although all the responsibility can not recaer only in him, carries two parties in which it has been unimportant. In Germany split from the bench, for the second time since aterrzó in the City Condal, but was not the revulsivo that needed the blaugrana. Further to demand a penalti, in which there was not at all, the Portuguese infected of the bad dynamic and did not offer individual solutions, once again.

Raphinha, waiting for the 'punch' final

As in the case of Lewandowski, comes of an injury and has remained evidenciado that needs more rhythm to be important, but in the most demanding moments of this season has showed little or a lot. It is a player to the that it is necessary to demand him more, because it is in conditions to contribute more. His return to the titularity was not the expected, all the contrary, and remains very distinguished. It was victim of the passivity and slowness, but neither saw him the intention to agitate by the band.

Xavi Hernández, in the focus more than ever

Finally, the one who goes out 'worse' of these two parties is Xavi Hernández. Although they are not decisive, because in Donosti achieved the victory and the Barça still has a lot of options to classify to the Champions League, his approach is in discussion. The team is not recognizable, does not generate occasions... And it suffers more than the account a day yes and another also. Against the Real Madrid noticed the lacks in two played of Jude Bellingham, against the Real was a constant suffering and a dejadez worrisome, whereas in front of the Shakhtar 'felt' as a despropósito absolute. The criticisms go directly to him and has to shake before it was afternoon. Because the Champions League does not expect.
