Vitor Roque's present at Barça is once again far from ideal. The youngster had a couple of positive weeks, but after his sending off at Alavés the minutes for the Brazilian have disappeared again

Although Xavi Hernández ensured the past Saturday that Vitor Roque "has adapted well to the position of the sides taking advantage of the space" "and has marked us the difference", the Brazilian forward follows without being headline again with the FC Barcelona, but is that besides it went back to remain without minutes. In spite of the "is question of time and can give us a lot of things" that added Xavi, the '9' repeated a party in white like the one of 10 days ago in Naples by the Champions League.

To weigh that some days before had been headline, for the first time, in the visit to the Celtic of Vigo, the youngster remained without playing in Italy, something that has sucedido again this Sunday in Saint Mamés in front of the AthleticClub , a party in which the culés could have planted like seconds in the classification of LaLiga. Besides, the Barça could plant to 'alone' six points of the Real Madrid in the fight by the title, a much more interesting distance of face to the Classical of the next month of April.

The Barça follows without having continuously to Vitor Roque on the field

To the margin of this 0-0 in front of the Basques, Xavi seems still not trusting Vitor Roque for destrabar split in which the rival is trying to look for the triumph and offers some spaces in defence. Already sucedió during the month of January, although in that moment yes that the adaptation of the forward seemed to be a factor. But now, when already Roque has showed with goals his big talent, highlights a lot a new absence of the footballer of 19 years in the field with the Barcelona T-shirt.

The true that every time seems more common to see to the Brazilian forward without having the opportunity to play with the Barça. At present it does not add at all in the Champions and between League and Glass has played 198 minutes delivered between nine parties. This figure has it with an average no very upper to the 20 minutes by meeting, something that really does not back with his talent, highlighting besides that has been in a moment of the season where have fallen lesionados several forwards like Ferran, Joao Félix and Raphinha.

For some could treat of a normal process, for others can be more a clear sample of Xavi of his original request of a mediocampista more in front of the injury of Gavi and no of Vitor Roque. And it is that the youngster sometimes seems the ideal solution when to Robert Lewandowski already seem to not to give him the legs, but neither in these moments the egarense to decided resort to his goleador acting.
