The FC Barcelona only carries four points of nine possible in this start of League. The culés lost in his debut in front of the Athletic in Saint Mamés, won to the Betis in the Camp Nou and empataron against Osasuna to domicile. The team has not begun well in general lines, but the most worrisome is definitely the fragile that is being in defence.

In the three crashes contested, the Barça has fit five goals. The Athletic alone put one, this anthological Chilean of Aduriz, but had several clear opportunities of goal in the first time. The Betis arrived less, but still like this marked two goals. Finally, Osasuna created danger every time that it approached to the Barcelona area and could put some goal more than the two that finished annotating.

The defensive fragility of the culés comes of long and is something that already could see the past campaign. Ter Stegen Has been too many times the hero of the barcelonistas in the last year and little and this is something that has to change. The defence is practically the same that the one of the past season and only there is a change reseñable in the eleven initial.

Nélson Semedo Is now the carrilero right-handed headline and Sergi Roberto has happened to the midfield. This would have to be a good news, since defensivamente the Portuguese is more complete that the one of Reus in the right-handed side. But, for the moment, this change has not translated in an important defensive change and to the Barça follow him arriving too much.

Semedo To the margin, the rest of the defence title is exactly the same that the one of the past course. Gerard Hammered in intocable, Clément Lenglet goes on down in front of Samuel Umtiti to eyes of Valverde and Jordi Alba is still in the left, in spite of the arrival of Junior Firpo. The Barça, in spite of the problems of the past year, has not reinforced with any defence experienced or of quality (further of Junior) and could finish paying it if all do not put the batteries.

The centre of the field also has to improve

Defensivamente Speaking, the centre of the Barcelona field also has to give more. The responsibility no recae only and exclusively in the shoulders of the four defenders, and Busquets, Of Jong and Sergi Roberto have to take a step forward also. The team has to defend better in group so that the rivals do not arrive with so much ease to put it of Ter Stegen.
