The FC Barcelona was drowned in the final of the Glass of Rey, and Ernesto Valverde tried desatascarlo with two changes to the rest. Malcom was key in the Barcelona reaction, although it could be victim of the operation gone out without knowing really if it deserves a place in the team
The FC Barcelona closed this Saturday a season agridulce with defeat in the final of the Glass of Rey. The Catalans raised the Supercopa of Spain and months later LaLiga, but carried a discontent in the Champions and could not follow the good series in his competition fetish, in which this year, the crown was for Valencia.
The first-half in Benito Villamarín finish condemning to the Catalans, too fallones where decide the parties, in the areas. Without a leading born centre, the Barcelona atascaron in the wall that protected to Jaume Doménech that lived very calm, whereas just across the field, to Jasper Cillessen put him two of the three occasions generated.
With little that lose, Ernesto Valverde moved the eleven to the rest, and gave him gone in to Malcom and Arturo Vidal. The Chilean midfield player was less brilliant that in his last performances, but his deployment helped to improve the general feelings more than the correction and the management that always contributes Arthur, less given to step the area and to dare in offensive adventures.
But one of the keys of the mejoría barcelonista was the Brazilian, that put all the desborde, the intention and win them that they were missing in the first 45 minutes. Leo Messi, drowned before the rest because it could not be at the same time assistant and striker, saw more freed because it shared responsibilities and passes with an able mate to be incisive, and that participated in the majority of played that finish in dangerous opportunities.
Of the extreme of Sao Paulo can stand out that it appeared where and when it touched, and can him explain several triangulations hit, brave passes and an insistent attitude that turned him into a headache for José Luis Gayá. In the goal of the Argentinian also appeared the ex of the Girondins of Burdeos, since it served the corner that finished Clément Lenget before the rebound that favoured to the '10'.
Malcom can go of a Barça that does not know if it is worthwhile
Without spirit to be ventajista, the worst is that Malcom can leave of the Barça without knowing if has level to remain , because to his 22 years has had good and bad parties but no the sufficient continuity to evaluate him in depth. The summer 2019 will dictate sentence and the youngster has a lot of numbers to leave , because they could arrive reinforcements to a forward in which there would be still less opportunities, because his sale can leave important income and because it occupies a square for non-EU that could take advantage of .
