The FC Barcelona took a break this Thursday in the Glass of Rey, where recovered feelings with a victory in front of the Leganés. In the Camp Nou parked the rotations and with intensity and tarpaulin certified the pass to quarter-finals, against a rival that could not prevent that the Catalans went through him on. The pupilos of Quique Setién showed that in spite of the recent doubts, go back to be on the way correct.

And precisely, the cándabro obtained an attainment that had not seen in the last five parties, since his went to the rest winning. A tempranera target of Antoine Griezmann opened the tin and before the half hour of game Clément Lenglet expanded the advantage, that finally finished in the resumption Leo Messi, with a doublet, and Arthur. Although it can seem simple, lately has not been it so much.

It did more than a month that the culés did not attain to impose his law in the halftime, and by the way harvested two defeats and a tie. The 0-0 of Mestalla turned into a 2-0 for Valencia (in LaLiga), the 1-0 in Can Misses finish in an adjusted 1-2 against the Ibiza (in Glass), the 0-0 in the Camp Nou broke with a triumph in front of the Granada (1-0 in LaLiga), the 0-0 in front of the Athletic of Madrid finished with discontent in the Supercopa of Spain (2-3 against) and although it traced back the 1-0 of the RCD Espanyol, the derbi remained equalised (2-2 in LaLiga).

On 21 December, the Barcelona already had repeated this played in front of the Sportive Alavés, but came of three parties without doing it. Griezmann And Arturo Vidal went then the 'can opener' of a duel that finish with a 4-1 favourable in LaLiga, that came preceded of a 0-0 in the Classical postponed of the City Condal, a 2-2 against the Real Sociedad (1-1 to the rest) and a 1-2 in favour against the Inter of Milan (1-1 to the rest).

This dangerous tendency was one of the reasons that pushed to say goodbye to Ernesto Valverde, that did not seem able to recover the spark in a team that atascaba day after day. Still it remains a lot to be able to affirm that Setién has recovered the brilliance and the security of the staff, but at least the result begin to accompany and the intention is to keep a firm and positive dynamics.

Put by in front will be key for the titles

One of the big critical for this Barça is that it saw forced to trace back in too many occasions, what could finish costing him very expensive in the fight by the titles. Although the opponents centre in resisting and is easier atinar when they spend the strengths in the second parts, to litigate by LaLiga, the Champions and the Glass of the King always is simpler to strike first. This is an easier evidence to say that to do, but the changing room has clear that dominate the parties from beginning to end is one put to which has to aspire.
