In the victory of the team blaugrana against the Athletic Club, the sides Joãor Cancel and Alejandro Balde went back to show his cost in the tactical diagram of Xavi Hernández. These two players were fundamental in the vision of the trainer to have lateral that no only defend, but also they involve actively in the attack of the team.

By his part, Cancel with his versatility and skill so much in the defence as in the attack has been vital since it arrived to the club. In the meeting, the luso showed once again his skill when visiting the right band with speed and precision, creating opportunities for his mates and causing problems to the rival defence. His capacity to centre balloons, combine with the offensive players or penetrate inwards turn it into a lethal weapon in the team.

On the other hand, Balde, also did the his by the another band. His active participation in the attack of the team and his speed by the band, are one of the greater threats of the system of Xavi. The '3' of the Barça, with his speed and skill in the dribbling, no only contributed in the creation of offensive opportunities, but it also showed a remarkable defensive solidity.

Balde And Cancel, vital in the attack

Really, the participation in the attack and the depth that contribute both has done that they embody the paper of extremes, because of the drops of players that split from out like Lamine Yamal or Raphinha. In front of the fault of this profile of player, the defenders assumed the responsibility to create disequilibrium in the attack and add at the front with determination. His versatility and capacity for desbordar to the rival defence, combined with a precision in the centres and the skill to involve in the construction of played offensive, allowed to the team keep a constant flow of opportunities of goal, in fact, the two clearer occasions to part of the one of the goal, come preceded of confined by the band of Balde or of shots of Cancel to the recortar inwards.

The approach of Xavi Hernández in having lateral that are able to contribute to the offensive game and create disequilibrium in the field has remained clearly reflected in the exert of the defenders blaugranas. His performance stood out also puts of self-evident the importance of the sides in the modern football, since no only limit to defensive tasks, but they exert an essential paper in the construction of the game and the creation of opportunities of goal. The versatility and the talent of these two players are definitely a vital aptitude for the Barça of the present.
