Quique Setién arrived to the FC Barcelona to try recover the showy and offensive game of the team, that with Ernesto Valverde is was showing too irregular. Almost two months after his arrival can say that the santanderino has not known to find this way. But the worst is not that the Barcelona follow without surrendering as it expected , but besides they are having worse offensive registers that with the 'Txingurri'.

The goals do not mention the football and with Setién in the bench the Catalans have marked many less than with the extremeño. With the one of Viandar of the Edge carried 49 targets in 19 crashes in LaLiga this course, whereas with the ex of the Betis only have put 14 so many in eight parties. The average with Valverde is of 2,6 by crash contested, whereas the one of the Cantabrian is of so alone 1,75. The difference is remarkable and obviously is not only blames of the ex of the Betis.

The injury of Luis Suárez has been demoledora for the Barça, that has remained without his 'killer' and without the reference that facilitated the game of his mates. The one of Jump fell lesionado just when it arrived to the charge Setién, that has had to fix them without him. Martin Braithwaite has arrived to try occupy this gap, although it is far to have the goal and the quality of the Uruguayan. Besides, also lesionó Ousmane Dembélé, that went to be important for Setién. Although being just with Valverde, the French neither played hardly at all with him by physical problems and the goals followed arriving.

Also it is necessary to say that of the 14 so many that has marked the Barcelona with the one of Santander in the band, 5 arrived in a same meeting. It was in front of the Eibar in the Camp Nou and Leo Messi commissioned to mark 4 in an extraordinary exhibition. Shelving this goleada, in the others seven crashes only have put 9 goals, an average of little more than one by day. It was a triumph by 1-0 in front of the Granada, defeat by 2-0 in Mestalla, victory against the Betis by 2-3, a 2-1 favourable in front of the Getafe, the mentioned 5-0 against the Eibar, defeat by 2-0 in front of the Real Madrid and the recent 1-0 against the Real Sociedad.

They are very few goals for a team that carries years showing an astounding regularity in the appearance goleador. In the first course of Valverde put 99 so many in 38 crashes (2,6 of average), in the second 90 in 38 (2,4) and in this third, that has remained half, the already appointed 49 in 19, with this average of 2,6. In this time, the extremeño had to lidiar with the drop of Neymar Jr, that went to the PSG or the continuous injuries of Dembélé, by what did not have it simple.

To the Barça of Setién costs him create occasions and mark goals

These data corroborate the fact that to the Barcelona of Setién costs him more create occasions and do goals, something that is evident seeing the parties of the team. In Naples, for example, only threw once to door, and there have been several days in which the Catalans hardly have had a pair or three of clear opportunities of goal in 90 minutes. Leo Messi follows throwing of the car and thanks to him follow arriving a lot of goals, but the trainer barcelonista has to look for more solutions if it wants to win something this campaign.
