FC Barcelona again lost another title because of their defensive problems. The Catalans, who already suffered last year in this regard, are even worse and did not fit so many goals for 15 years
The Barça dominated the party against the Athletic from the minute one until the 80, that was when Morata empató of penalti. The culés had the ball and shut to a team rojiblanco that held with utmost difficulty the charged blaugrana. The 2-1 that reflected the marker before the so much colchonero remained very short for the seen along the meeting. But it gives the same the good game if in defence the ones of Ernesto Valverde go on doing waters every time that the rival tightens for real.
The culés threw by embroiders it the triumph and the possibility to win the Supercopa of Spain in three abysmal defensive actions. First it went in the so much of Koke after the resumption, later in the penalti to Vitolo that meant the equalised and finally in the 2-3 of Belt that gave him the triumph to the athletic. The three played were a despropósito backwards that speak very bad of the that already can say that it is the worst Barça in defence of the last 15 years.
From the course 2003-2004 the barcelonistas did not fit so many goals as now. In that then, after the dispute of the first turn, the Barcelona of Frank Rikjaard had received 25 targets only in LaLiga. This Barça already carries 23 in the domestic competition, three in the Supercopa and four in the Champions League. In LaLiga, the worst register until the moment from the one of the Dutch technician was the one of Valverde of the past course, that to these heights carried 20 so many against.
No always the numbers have why be related directly with the fact in question, but in this case is a fact that this Barça is a disaster in defence. The Barcelona hardly suffered against the Athletic, but in what the colchoneros went up and looked for the spaces, the ones of the 'Txingurri' went to rack and ruin and conceded goals and opportunities
The culés showed fault of character in some actions, as for example the duel that lost Hammered with Morata in the 2-3, but no only went individual errors what condemned to the Barcelona. The defence barcelonista is disordered, does not have a clear leader, occupies badly the spaces... In summary, the saga is a disaster and the centre of the field neither is doing the necessary works to protect his goal.
Ter Stegen Has avoided a still greater bloodletting
The result of all this is a team that suffers against almost any team of LaLiga and of Europe in what it does not have the balloon. They are already 30 goals against between all the competitions at the end of this first turn, but the worst is that there are not symptoms that the thing go to improve. Up to now, if the Barça has not received even more so many is because Ter Stegen has completed a first extraordinary turn. But if the German is not, as it could see in the Supercopa, the culés go to rack and ruin with more ease still if it fits.
