The FC Barcelona lost an opportunity of gold to sentence LaLiga this past Sunday in Santiago Bernabéu. The Barcelona arrived like favourites, but only were upper in the first part and not even attained to translate this superiority in goals. The Real Madrid, instead, himself could find the goal until in two occasions to win the Classical, recover the leadership and leave to the Barça very touched.

The defeat in the stadium merengue supposes the fifth in what it goes of championship suspender belt. It is a tremendously significant data and at all alentador, since it is the worst balance barcelonista in 16 seasons. The Catalans had not fallen in so many meetings in LaLiga from the course 2003/2004, with Frank Rijkaard in the bench. This campaign, to these heights the culés added already six defeats, whereas this year they have five in the pigeonhole.

In other words this Barcelona of Quique Setién now and of Ernesto Valverde during several months, is the worst in 16 years of League. The blaugrana are showing to be tremendously irregular, soft in defence and with an invalid capacity for sobreponerse and raise adverse situations. This course, if the rival puts by in front, the Barcelona do not are used to to find the way to trace back and win the crash.

The 'Txingurri' fell in three occasions in the months that was in the charge, in front of the Athletic Club (1-0), the Granada (2-0) and the Raise (3-1). With the Cantabrian technician to the controls, the Barça fell in Mestalla in front of the Valency by 2-0 and more recently in the Bernabéu against the Madrid by this identical result. Besides, although it do not explain in this statistics, Valverde also fell in the Supercopa in front of the Athletic of Madrid and Setién in Bilbao against the Athletic in the chambers of Glass of Rey.

Both trainers share the doubtful merit to direct to the team in a campaign that, unless they change the things, will finish being one of the worst in the recent history of the Barcelona. Neither the extremeño neither the santanderino have known (in the case of the ex of the Betis at least for the moment) build a regular and competitive team that can do that the fans barcelonistas seat proud. If the culés follow like this, will surpass even to this Barça of Rijkaard of the 2004.

First turn nefasta of the Barça of Rijkaard

With the Dutch in the bench, to these heights the blaugrana had fallen against Valencia home by 0-1, also in the Camp Nou against the Sportive by 0-2, in Castellón in front of the Villarreal by 2-1, in front of the Málaga in a sonrojante 5-1 in the Rosaleda, 1-2 in front of the Real Madrid in the Classical and a conclusive 3-0 in Santander against the Racing. This course, the culés improved in the second turn, but could not compete him the title to Valencia, that proclaimed champion with five points more, 77 to 72.
