El FC Barcelona se ha impuesto al Club Gimnàstic de Tarragona por 3-1, en el Estadi Johan Cruyff, en la primera prueba de fuego de Koeman. Los mejores: Pedri, Coutinho y Trincao
Already they know the said: "new Trainer safe victory", and Ronald Koeman did not go to be the exception. To the 19:00 of the afternoon started in the Estadi Johan Cruyff the first friendly meeting of the Dutch technician. Before giving beginning the meeting already found us with the first surprise in the alignment: Pedri and Aleñá titled.
Treating of a party of pre-season, Koeman, warned that each player would have the opportunity to contest 45 minutes. Nevertheless, although the eleven initial does not result very notable, yes is true that have been able to see destellos of which is the intention of the ex trainer of the Dutch Selection.
For the Club Gimnàstic of Tarragona did not treat of a simple friendly. Play against the Barça is always a good opportunity and the Nástic went out with a defensive approach to treat to fit few goals and can surprise to the against. Obviously, that was the approach of the trainer before the party, finally, the result speaks in case only.
The start of the first part has been a continuous positional attack of the FC Barcelona. With a Nàstic totally closed in his area, the club blaugrana has been able to enjoy of a very good possession of the ball. Like this, in the first minutes of the meeting, Ousmane Dembélé has achieved to find goal after a played with something of fortune.
The constant attack of the Barça finished conceding him another so much, this time of Antoine Griezmann, of penalti, put the 2-0 in the marker, after Messi conceded him the direct shot. In one of the few played of attack of which could enjoy the Nàstic, Javier Bonilla shortened distances with a shot from out of the area.
The party has arrived to the rest with a result of 2-1 that did not reflect of sufficient form the superiority of the team culé, that, in spite of dominating the tempo of the party has not shot to door with danger in too many occasions. Perhaps the best news of the first part has been the performance of Pedri. Even it remains a lot for seeing, but has showed impudence and quality.
The second part began with the change of the eleven footballers by part of the local team. If in the first all the eyes were put in the youngster Pedri, in the second Trincao and Coutinho were the big attractions. Neither five minutes has needed the Brazilian to annotate the first goal, also of penalti, after a played of Semedo that would finish in hands of his defender.
To the start of the last chamber of the meeting, the team visitor was able to begin to go out of the cave, probably motivated by the relaxation of the team culé. In spite of this small threaten to go to by the party, the Barça kept on being owner and gentleman of the meeting and has not lost the reins of the same in any moment.
Good feelings: Pedri, Coutinho and Trincao
Several positive appearances can highlight in the victory culé in front of the team of Tarragona. In the first place, the tactical appearance. The 'false double pivote' in which Busquets, and after Jong, sank a bit further back that the another pivote, has given good performance. We could say that in defence were on line and in staggered attack.
Also we have seen good individual performances. In the first part has stood out a Pedri , that with a lot of impudence, has understood to perfection his location in the half tip, knowing that the path of Leo Messi tends to the centre.
The second part has two big proper names for the FC Barcelona: Coutinho and Trincao. The player that has gone back of cession in the Bayern of Munich has showed very comfortable in the position of stick, has not stopped to offer and participate in the game. On the other hand, Trincao, the young promise that has incorporated this summer the Barça has showed a very good level of driving and of vision of game.
