Tickets for FC Barcelona matches

The FC Barcelona faced this Wednesday a serious test against the Real Madrid and the suspicions founded are a reality: the players, Ernesto Valverde and the barcelonismo in general have of what concern. The group of Zinedine Zidane destapó the shames of the Barcelona​ of the same form that the culés did years backwards: playing to the football.

It is true that the Barça had several clear occasions and that gave coletazos when the Real Madrid conceded. It is true that the group merengue has shut to the culés in his area but even and like this has not bombed to Ter Stegen with very clear situations of goal. But it is worrisome to see to the whites manacling to the Barça in the centre of the field, that carries decades being the strong point blaugrana.

It is true that could not play a fundamental player like Sergio Busquets, but at all is excuse. Casemiro Cut balloons to pleasure; Fede Valverde gave a recital of drivings, deployment and verticality; Toni Kroos was the perfect compass of the room of machines; and Isco Alarcón went back to shine with drivings magnánimas.

By against, we saw to a Frenkie of Jong shy that only soltó the mane in the second time; to Ivan Rakitic uncomfortable in the position of mediocentro and to Sergi Roberto correct in the helps but overwhelmed, as his mates of line. It is impossible to remember to Xavi, Iniesta or to the own Busquets capitulating in front of the command of the rival, by very powerful that went.

It touches to look for solutions

By a lot that the Real Madrid generated fewer occasions of what seemed and that the Barça arrived with more danger of what seemed, touches reflexionar on it sucedido in the Classical of this Wednesday and, looking further back, in the parties against the Real Sociedad, the Athletic of Madrid or, going us to months, the Liverpool. The team of Valverde is losing the control of the game against the rivals of entity and it is necessary to invest the dynamics if they want to win titles.

The Barça plays very split, something that inhabilita the pressure and gives a lot of options to the rival. Go back to the 4-4-2, test other players to the usual, joint lines... What was, but does lacking to touch a lot of keys so that the Barça go back to be recognizable. In less than what sings a rooster, will arrive the decisive moment of the season and, with the level showed against the Real Madrid, would not be so rare another black night in Champions League. Self-criticism, reflection and inconformismo to assume a reality that has to change.
