The Catalan group has accumulated a big number of defensive errors that have cost him points and vital parties, something that Koeman has not been able to solve
In the last party that the Barcelona contested with the Cádiz, the culés obtained a bitter tie afterwards to having initiated the party in command with a goal of Messi in the half of the first time. This was thanks to a fault in the area that Lenglet committed against Rubén Nephew to alone five minutes to finish the second time.
Another similar case lived the Barcelona during the party of gone of the quarter-finals of the Glass of the King against the Seville. In this party, were surpassed by the blanquirrojos 2-0 by two errors committed by Samuel Umtiti and that the rivals did not doubt in desaprovechar, leaving to the combined Catalan with a foot out of the competition.
During the market of signings of winter, arrived to speak of fichar to some head office to reinforce the defence of the team of face to the second half of LaLiga, the Glass, the Supercopa and the Champions. The Spanish defender of the Manchester City, Eric Garcìa, outlined like an imminent signing, but the presidential candidates had reactions found and the boss of the managing board, Carles Tusquets, did not make the contracting of the central.
The last results, show that if there is something that has defined to the Barcelona led by Ronald Koeman are the defensive errors, and which, are not desaprovechados by his rivals. It is true that, before the terrible reverse that suffered in front of the Seville in the Glass of Rey; and worse, before the defeat humillante to hands of the PSG (1-4) in the gone of the eighth of final of the Champions, the team showed to have improved so much in the offensive as in his state anímico by the surprising traced back that attained.
Koeman Admitted it
However, the last negative results show that the Barcelona is missing him a lot of way that visit to recover the level that, in his moment of cusp, had. This recognised it the same Koeman afterwards of finished the party against the PSG. "Always it is necessary to aspire to everything, but also is necessary to recognise that they are missing us things (…) already have said it several times, are in the good way and go to struggle and follow changing things. Today we play with Dest, 19 years. With 4 years more is better. Pedri, to his age already is very good, but with five years more, is better that any one of the half of the field of the PSG. It is complicated, more with the subject of the press. I am realistic. Always I defend to my team. We have done of everything. We can defend better, be more aggressive. We go it to change and go to work. It is a moment in which they are missing us things, but never have thought that they did not be missing us. Still it is not the end. It seems that I am more realistic that the other", said.
The goals in Champions
If Koeman expects that the culés have opportunity no only against the teams of LaLiga, but also against the main European teams, will have to focus in improving even more the defence barcelonista so that errors like the ones of Lenglet or Umtiti do not follow occurring. The increasing number of goals that the blaugranas have received during the parties in the league of champions like this shows it.
In the last five parties that have had in the Champions League, the culés have received a total of 18 goals: 8 they were annotated by the Bayern Munich, 4 executed them the Liverpool and the last 4 correspond to the PSG during the last party that contested.
