The history would have been very different for Joao Félix if Polishing Santana had not cancelled his goal in the first time of the UD Barbastro-FC Barcelona. The Portuguese cabeceó a centre of Fermín López, but the referee understood that it was in position irreglamentaria. In the repetition, however, was entirely enabled. There was not VAR in the crash and the '14' saw how his effort had remained in at all, with some injustice of by half.

The true is that, further of this, there were few news of Joao Félix in the crash against the picture oscense. It was little involved with the creation of game of the Barcelona and desconectado, in general lines. The frustration of the goal cancelled happened him bill, because in the second part signed a seguidilla of errors that exhausted the patience of Xavi Hernández in the band. His replacement was question of time.

The drop that satisfied the glass was the shot of corner that gave when it had to control a balloon. It was the played that gave 'step' to the discount of the Barbastro, to the hour of party, from this corner. Although the action was very controversial and the so much of Of Table did not have to go up to the marker by infringement, Joao Félix finished being the big signalled. It surprised that Raphinha, one of the most stood out players until this moment, was the first in abandoning the field.

Joao Félix, forced to step forward

In the 73', produced his change to give entrance to Robert Lewandowski. It has not remained doubt that has been a new called of attention by part of Xavi, the one who 'trust' every time less in him.

The true is that Joao will have to step forward to recover his confidence and win again the one of Xavi, because it has left to be an indisputable in the XI and his role would be for changing. The last informations suggest that, to day of today, Ferran Torres is by in front in the plans of the Barça and that it could be the fixed piece to reinforce the left extreme, displacing definitively to the Portuguese.
