Can lose in Mestalla. It is one of the most complicated fields of LaLiga and, anytime, the 'chés' are able to win a party thanks to his fast contragolpes. What can not happen, however, is that the FC Barcelona fall 2-0 and Ter Stegen, his goalkeeper, was one of the best players of the team. It is clear that Quique Setién has arrived to the Barça to change a lot of things... But they accumulate him the duties.

From the beginning of the season 2019-20 the Barcelona accuses a defensive weakness acuciante, that seems to aggravate by moments and especially in the meetings that play far of the Camp Nou. With the two targets received this Saturday in Mestalla, the group culé already has received at all less than 25 goals in 21 days of LaLiga Santander, an authentic atrocity.

Without going more far, five of his maxima perseguidores in the classification have received fewer targets: 13 the Real Madrid, 14 the Athletic of Madrid, 20 the Seville, 20 the Getafe and 15 the Athletic of Bilbao. True is that the Barça has a party more than the majority of them, but equally are data that do not speak at all well of the defensive level of the Barcelona team this season.

With the duel of this Saturday in Mestalla, already are seven the times in that the culés receive the first goal of the party, and so only could trace back the adverse marker in an occasion (1-2 against Leganés). They lost in front of the Athletic Club (1-0) and the Granada (2-0), whereas empataron against Osasuna (2-2), Real Sociedad (2-2) and RCD Espanyol (2-2). This, explaining the parties of League.

Because in Glass of the King the team began losing in front of the Ibiza in deiciseisavos (afterwards traced back 1-2), in the Supercopa of Spain fell against the Athletic of Madrid (2-3, after beginning losing) and in Champions League the team has classified like first of group to the eighth of final of miracle, taking into account the unemployed saviours of Ter Stegen practically in all the parties.

A Barça that every time is less reliable backwards

In total, are 16 the parties of this campaign in that the Barça has begun losing, that says prompt. And the worst of everything is that it treats of a statistics that is aggravating in the last weeks, without that discern a solution in the short term. Quique Setién knows that it is one of his pending subjects and, although it only carries three parties in the bench culé, will have to put the batteries he and put them to all the staff.

If the FC Barcelona aspires to conquer titles this season, does not remain him another that react and protect better the goal of Ter Stegen. it is speaking Long and tended of the signing of a 'nine' in this market of winter, but the most worrisome problem is not in the forward. With 50 goals, the Barça is with difference the team more goleador of LaLiga 2019-20. Now, it touches him leave to be one of which more receives.
