Ferran Torres has left good feelings in recent Barça games. With a goal and an assist, the man from Foios has been able to take advantage of the opportunities that Xavi has given him, standing out in the Barça attack, which has recently faced serious difficulties

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has showed a remarkable inefficiency in the offensive appearance in his recent parties. This reflects in the statistics, as in the defeat 2-4 in front of the Girona FC, where the team did not attain to concretise six clear occasions ofgoal , similar figure to the one of the tie 1-1 with Valencia CF (four chances) and even more evident in the fuss 2-3 against the Amberes, where there were not failures clamorosos, but the Barcelona did not have the capacity to generate a big offensive discharge.

In front of this, evidence a big falencia in the forward, where the main signalled have been Joãor Félix, Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha. In spite of having had sporadic apparitions, like the target of the Portuguese to open the electronic (1-0) in front of the 'blanquinegros' or the annotation of the Polish artilleryman to put the momentary parity (1-1) against the combined gerundense, the capacity of concretion of this trident in offensive matter has been particularly scarce.

The data that 'portray' the inefficiency of the trident Joãor-Lewandowski-Raphinha

Taking like reference the three more recent crosses, in which the '9' Barcelona has contested a total of 252 minutes, the '14' has seen 137 minutes and the '11' has played 155 minutes, his contribution to the game has been totally far to what expects of some players of his hierarchy and, especially, playing for a square of the envergadura of the Barça. In the total sum of these commitments, two pieces of this trident have failed a total of seven occasions of danger, having four desaciertos the Brazilian and three the Pole.

Further of the statistics, what results particularly odd is the image showed by these three names. Several details showed in his game like the rhythm, positioning in the field, desmarques thrown and the connections fallidas that try to create suggest that, although the quality of the three attackers is not in doubt, are clearly the most affected players by the low performance of the Barcelona cast.

Ferran has left good feelings after his participations

In this sense, the Barcelona has found a small break in Ferran Torres, the one who, in spite of have not been very used in these meetings, accumulating a total of 133', has attained to do notice in the offensive appearance. In the commitments against the Girona FC and Valencia CF, went in in replacement of Raphinha and Joãor Félix, respectively, showing his versatility to play in both sides and upset to the defensive line rival, showing some spark that has shined by his absence in the City Condal.

The one of Foios has known to capitalise notably his time of game, marking in the complicated party against the Amberes when taking advantage of the first opportunity of danger that had the Barça, making a desmarque in which it presented like a true leading centre. Also it was a key piece in the party against the gerundenses when serving him an assistance to Ilkay Gündoğan with which, momentáneamente, the Barça aspired to empatar the commitment, showing an attitude that suggests that 'The Shark' deserve more time in the field.

The one of Foios could contribute something different to the rhythm of Barcelona game

His inclusion could consider interesting because of the freshness that can contribute from different areas of the field and, the most important, his wish to generate something different. This is especially notable if it takes into account that, for example, the Portuguese has showed a fault of mobility in the attack and has renounced in more than an occasion to deepen and encarar by the side, preferring throw constantly to the centre.

Likewise, the Polish forward, like reference in the area, has not had a lot of fortune in terms of controls or slow movements, and the Brazilian extreme, although it has done gala of a remarkable disequilibrium by his side, has lacked shine and precision in the last metres, what suggests that the egarense could be testing something different with Ferran Torres that from the start of the campaign has showed a different attitude so much in the terrain of game as out of him.
