Everything that FC Barcelona did not want or could do in ninety minutes of regulation time, they wanted to complete in added time. There were two goals left and the feeling that it could have been more... but it was insufficient

The FC Barcelona came warning that something was badly. In Frankfurt and Valency the team had left the feeling to go a course by behind and not being so decisive as before the stop of selections. The blaugrana had answered of surprising way in the last four months and signed a series of 15 parties without knowing the defeat, but this Thursday in a Camp Nou very white finish the seguidilla of occasions and seeded the doubts.

The Barça left the feeling that it did not compete in front of the Eintracht, at least in the ninety statutory minutes. The germanos advanced very soon by an error garrafal of Eric García that finish in penalti, but the bad news arrived paulatinamente because the blaugrana could not go in easily to the area of a Trapp that, further of the finish of Araújo after a refuse and the one against one in front of Aubameyang, had little work.

The ones of Xavi cost of the confined and centres of Dembélé, but little more. Grey night of a Pedri that could lose the rest of the season and also of a Gavi that appeared to dropper. Sergio Busquets was neutralised by the pressure of the germanos, but there was not the main disaster, but in a defence that did not appear in all the party and that left a lot that wish (not to say that, literally, were not).

This does not remove that the Barça did not struggle to the end and looked for a traced back that there was sio historical. The blaugrana marked two goals in the complementary time, bringing to collation to Trapp the traced back of does a few years with the PSG. They saw it possible and therefore Xavi does not see this party like a failure, all the contrary. It follows thinking that are in the line to be followed and will work to follow improving, but yes that it is true that it has to look again the party and take a lot of notes.

The goals arrived at the end

And it is that precisely the egarense has insisted in numerous opportunities that does not cost to win without playing well. Today the Barça neither won neither played well, but has remained out of a new competition and loses the opportunity to win a title in this course, something that begins to see like a chimaera in spite of the optimism that transmits from some sectors of the club. What happened this Thursday in the Camp Nou would have to not to repeat, because it was a catastrophe.

Sergio Busquets marked two goals and cancelled him one. Luuk Of Jong (criticised until the tiredness and 'descarte' culé) caused a penal 'in extremis' and an expulsion, that transformed Memphis... They showed that they believe in the project, in the team and the ideas of Xavi. But this goes to win and if it does not happen, there is not more remedy that accept the failure or disappointment and look to forward.
