Version very poor of the FC Barcelona in the first time against the Inter of Milan, at least in defence. The ones of Ernesto Valverde showed soft, slow and inconsistentes with and without the balloon, what caused a lot of frights because of the intensity and rapidity of the contragolpes of the Inter of Milan. Lautaro Martínez advanced to the 'nerazzurri' in the minute two of party, but after said occasion could arrive a lot of targets more.

Although the Barça tried to rearm, the orderly and diligent pressure of the Inter of Milan caused losses of worrisome balloon, and the forwards of the Inter took advantage of them to put the direct to the contrary goal. Candreva Annotated a goal that was cancelled by offside, and Ter Stegen starred a celestial intervention to avoid a goal of head of Lautaro Martínez, to the exit of a corner.

Sensi, Barella, Alexis Sánchez and again Lautaro and Candreva followed it trying with shots that left slightly diverted, whereas Lenglet and Hammered cut a pair of counterattacks to the limit, avoiding so the Italian attackers remained solos in the hand manually with Ter Stegen.

Seen the seen, to the fans culé did not remain him another that whistle progressively to the team of Valverde to measure that happened the minutes, wishing surely that it arrived the half part. The nervousness of the followers blaugrana remained patent with the constant whispers of worry, that turned into gestures of despair every time that Busquets and company lost balloons in the centre of the field.

The players of the Barça, too static

To the Barça, with the very separate lines, cost him horrors happen the fast balloon to treat to surprise to the Inter, very very ordered backwards to go out shot upwards when it recovered the balloon. Very very worked the team of Antonio Conte, and in an upper physical state to the of the players culés. It notices that has arguments to lead for the time being the classification of the Series To.

To the rest, Ernesto Valverde reacted and commanded to heat to Arturo Vidal, surely to try print something more than intensity in the centre of the field. It was as it was, it is not an individual problem but generalised. The team needs to take consciousness that, to win the parties in Champions League, does not suffice with dominating the possession with horizontal passes. It does lacking precision, speed... And more you win.
