FC Barcelona is showing that it does not know and cannot overcome matches once it gets behind. The culés have not been able to do it since February, against Betis. This campaign, Granada, Athletic and obviously Bayern took advantage of it
The FC Barcelona of Ronald Koeman was during several weeks the past season one of these teams described as 'specialists in traced back'. The Barcelona did it in Glass of the King against Ray Vallecano, Granada or Seville, in front of which traced back the 2-0 of the gone in the Camp Nou, but also in League against the Athletic Club or the Real Betis. Between January, February and beginnings of March, the Catalans showed more character that in almost all the rest of the together course.
However, this effect has not lasted him too much time to the blaugrana, that do not achieve to give him the turn to an adverse marker from May against Valencia. Gabriel Paulista advanced to the ones of Javi Gracia, but a doublet of Leo Messi and another so much of Antoine Griezmann put to the Barça by in front. Carlos Soler annotated the 2-3, but the barcelonistas knew to hold the result to carry the three points.
This 2 May was the last time in which the Barcelona traced back. Since, the Barcelona have begun losing in 4 occasions and in any of them have achieved to finish the duel winning. It is true that are not so many times, but yes begins to be a pattern that repeats and that already is something worrisome. The fault of character showed by the Barcelona is alarming and has to finish the before possible.
The nearest examples are the Granada and the Bayern of Munich. Against the Bavarians, the Barça could not do at all in front of the so much initial of Thomas Müller and not even generated danger in the area of the Germans. Already in the second part, the ones of Julian Nagelsmann sentenced the crash with other two targets (0-3), leaving clear his superiority and putting in evidence to the picture of Koeman.
In front of the grenadian, the fault of reaction of the Barcelona also was notorious, since had practically all the party to give him the turn to the marker. The nazarís marked in the minute one, by what the culés had all the time of the world to trace back. However, further of some arrived punctual occasion, did not transmit true feeling of danger of form continued. It did not go until the 89, almost without time to mark the second, when Ronald Araújo put the definite 1-1.
Koeman Is not knowing change parties
The Dutch trainer is one of the big signalled by this dynamics, since from the bench is not knowing change the meetings and give him an impulse to his team. The one of Zaandam is not having ideas to attack enclosed defences like the one of the Granada and is excusando with the level of his staff. By this reason, the club medita sack him sooner that late. It will be necessary to see what occurs in the weeks to come and if it attains that the traced back go back to Barcelona.
