After his exciting game against Granada, Riqui Puig could start for the first time in this course in Copa del Rey against Ibiza. This time, however, he was not so successful
Few days after being appointed like new trainer of the FC Barcelona, Quique Setién left clear his intentions of future betting by Riqui Puig like revulsivo when the split suspender belt against the Granada was entirely atascado. And the canterano answered with a very fluent game and with a recovery of balloon that finish being the start of the played of the first goal of the meeting.
Hardly three days afterwards, the mediocentro born in Matadepera won by own merits the opportunity to be headline for the first time in the present season. It was against the Ibiza in the party that supposed the première in Glass of the King of the FC Barcelona in this campaign but, in this occasion, the 'jewel' Barcelona did not run the same luck that the past Sunday in the Camp Nou.
Riqui Puig could not take advantage of with good note this opportunity that had to split of start in a stage very of the style of which is accustomed, in which it has to play weekend yes and weekend no in the filial. Small field, artificial lawn, public very near... But the Catalan, in spite of putting him win, could not answer with the same tarpaulin that yes had in his first official minutes in League.
In his favour, it is necessary to say that the team did not accompany him too much in a party of general chaos, since hardly there were ideas neither precise combinations to collective level. But, to individual level, Riqui Puig was one of the most toneless players of the team. It began the meeting trying a pair of passes with the intention to give depth but was too accelerated, being missing him temper and precision in front of the Balearic defence, very very situated.
With the step of the minutes, the canterano Barcelona was desquiciando fruit of not going out practically at all of what tried with the balloon. Without precision in the pass neither in the combinations, Riqui Puig went turning off and went to less in each played until Quique Setién decided to withdraw him of the terrain of game to the seventy minutes of game to give entrance to Arthur Melo.
Riqui Puig, a 'perla' that needs split
The natural talent of Riqui Puig is evident, as well as the need of curtirse to base of opportunities with the first team. Against the Granada already put of self-evident that it can be a very valid resource for the first team, but against the Ibiza showed that it needs opportunities to keep growing. A bad party has it any one and now to the canterano touches him analyse what was missing him for pulirse.
