The FC Barcelona began with doubts, but did not take in imposing in front of the AD Ceuta FC to sign the first 'manita' of the season and seal the classification to the quarter-finals of the Glass of the King 2022-2023. The ones of Xavi Hernández follow to firm step and have left clear his intentions to litigate by a new title, after the consecusión of the Supercopa of Spain the past Sunday.
The blaugrana signed a very positive party in which several players stood out above the rest, but in which the collective work has been essential. They were of less to more, with a second part sensacional in which they annotated four goals in front of a Ceuta that, although it began with quite a lot of impetus, began to desinflarse with the happen of the minutes. The Barça took advantage of and 'killed' the party to go direct to the quarter-finals.
To continuation, review one by one the performances of the players titled of the Barça:
It took advantage of his opportunity to be headline in the team and, although it did not have a lot work, showed security and very good game with the feet. Solo Had to take part in an opportunity, to take out the balloon with the fists in the most dangerous action of the Ceuta in the beginning of the second half.
It was of less to more, but finished signing a very correct and hopeful performance after several parties in which it had remained signalled for going out in the photo of the goal. Hit to the hour to defend and also when it added to the attack. His more important action was an autopase on line background to finish centring to Raphinha.
It went back to the titularity and took advantage of the opportunity that gave him Xavi. It showed a lot support in the right-handed side and was hit in the exit of balloon. It was the player that more passes gave in the party, with 93.2% of tarpaulin. It tried 88 and it hit 82.
It was another that won the titularity in the middle of the 'sea' of rotations, but was not very hit and signed a quite grey performance with a few errors and without risking, although it watched well his zone and was attentive to the coverages and helps in band.
It went back to the XI of Xavi after having remained in the bench during the Classical and left a grandísima performance, especially in the second half when it could play with a lot of soltura and launched to the attack. It lived the final stretch like an extreme more and combined at all times with Ansu Fati from his entrance.
Had the mission to replace to Sergio Busquets in the position of pivote and, although it gave start to a few played and of moments 'controlled' the game of the culés, was missing him give more speed and rhythm to the party. It finished signing a positive performance, but did not finish of despegar like mediocentro.
It was the best news for the Barça in the party against the Ceuta. It came of several very positive performances and convincentes, but in this left probably his best party like culé, with two assistances and a goal in the second mitad.se reinvindicó and gave valid reasons to follow believing in him.
It did not sign a big party and, although it printed rhythm in several occasions, finish turning off with the happen of the minutes. His performance finish in the rest, when Xavi decided to replace him to give entrance to Gavi and that the centre of the field was more 'fine'.
The Brazilian was one of which better feelings left in the party against the Ceuta and finish rewarded with a golazo with thread and shot raso, in addition to an assistance to Franck Kessié. It was, as all the team, of less to more but pushing always to create danger.
It marked two goals in the second half although it was very controlled by the defensive saga of the Ceuta and did not have spaces to generate danger. It showed, however, that is an authentic 'killer' that enchufa all what receives. In the first received of Kessié to command it to the deepest of the network and, in the second, sent a finish crossed to the base of the stick.
It was the negative note of the party, because it left a performance for the forget and was surpassed very rapido by Ansu Fati. Ferran Torres went back to show without tarpaulin to the hour of the last pass and, as it comes accustoming, a player that stands out more by what does to the hour to defend and in the recoveries that what can do up.
Reliefs of 'luxury'
Xavi moved a lot the bench and two players highlighted above the rest: Gavi, that went in in the second half and was differential, as well as an Ansu Fati that went in to 'command' and left clear that is recovering his best version and the idyll with the goal. Also it went in Busquets, Christensen and an Alarcón that debuted in the first team during the final stretch of the party.
