Calendar of FC Barcelona

The defence of the FC Barcelona has been, definitely, his worst facet in the 2023/24. The bastion of the previous season in LaLiga has become the weak point of a team that happened to fit only 20 so many in 38 days in the 22/23 to concede 43 so many in 34 parties, being the ninth worse defence of the championship, surpassed even by teams of the low zone like Ray (40) and Mallorca (42).

And it is that, in total, the culés already add 68 goals against in 49 parties ((43 in League, 14 in Champions , 7 in Glass of the king and other 4 in the Supercopa Spanish), being his fourth worse average in what it goes of the 21st century and the worst figures registered from the season 2012/13, where the then group directed by Tito Vilanova closed the course with 70 so many fit in 60 parties.

In spite of this, this Barça closed the season with the obtaining of a League in which it equalised the record of points of the Real Madrid (100) reached the previous year. In the 23/24, the balance closes with the vitrina empty and eliminations in chambers of Champions and chambers of Glass, unlike a year 2013 in where the culés reached the semifinals of both tournaments.

The goleadas against, main symptom of the defensive fragility of the Barça

Something that has evidenciado the fragility of the bottom culé during all the season have been the painful goleadas fit so much in Montjuïc as out of house. In Catalan floor, teams like Girona (2-4), Villarreal (3-5) and Paris Saint-Germain (1-4) lumbered with hard defeats to the ones of Xavi Hernández, in addition to other falls been bulky in Glass (4-2 in Saint Mamés) and Supercopa (4-1 in the Classical in Arabia).

The Madrid was the team that did more damage to the Barcelona group, with 9 goals in 3 parties translated in equal number of defeats for the Barça. Girona and Villarreal (both with 8) escort to the 'merengues', gone on down a PSG that gave the luxury to mark 6 in the eliminatory of chambers of Champions. In fact, the bloodletting in the final stretch initiated with the hard fall in front of Paris, adding already 13 so many received in the four last official duels (only could win to Valencia, 4-2).

In spite of having a saga, in theory, more reliable in comparison to the previous season thanks to the signings of Iñigo Martínez and Joao Cancel, the Barça 23/24 has desangrado backwards product of the low performance of varied of his effective, in addition to the inopportune injuries of Alejandro Balde and Marcos Alonso (without forgetting the drop of Ter Stegen a pair of months) that forced to Cancel to play by left. With the irruption of Pau Cubarsí and Héctor Fort like only positive appearance, the course has been a nightmare in the defensive and forces to make drastic adjust in summer.
