Calendar of FC Barcelona

Still it remains a lot to value the season of the FC Barcelona, but for the moment in the first stretch of the course already can take out some positive conclusions. The Barcelona have raised after some months complicated and are growing in his game, and several distinguished players have gone back to be decisive.

The courses of Luis Enrique and Neymar, beside the arrival of Ernesto Valverde, have supposed a radical change in several footballers, and one of which more has noticed it has been Jordi Alba. He same recognised his mejoría in a recent interview, and attributed big part of the merit to the freedom that supposed not having to the Brazilian by in front, a fact that frees him in offensive tasks.

But the true is that the feelings of the side have changed a lot of a season to the another, coinciding also with a wear of his relation with the Asturian and a reinicio with the disembarkment of the Txingurri. The hardness of the preparador gijonés and his temporary solution to plant an alignment with three defences finish for exasperating to the canterano, that finish with a considerable rebound and convict to the bench.

Question of numbers

But in addition to a revival on the lawn that has extended to the Spanish selection, the numbers speak by himself alone. To these heights of the course, Jordi Alba hardly has lost a pair of parties by injury and other two by rest, accumulating a total of 1.245 minutes. The previous campaign, by the same dates, carried 647 and a lower incidence in the balance goleador of the team, in spite of having begun also 'touched'.

You adjust them of Ernesto Valverde in the Barça have converted to the left side in one of the greater assistants of the Barcelona group, in which it has delivered already five definite passes. In the past season carried one. To the footballer of L'Hospitalet no only endorse him the statistics, and is that it is in a moment of difficult form to reach. And that last him.
