The Madrid dominated in the centre of the field, and this does not have at all that see with the possession (62-38 for the Barça), but in how manages the balloon when you have it in your have. The whites play en bloc and are able to generate danger with very little
Valverde Stood out after the party in press conference that "had a lot of occasions of goal but were not hit and they yes". Iniesta, in mixed zone, aimed also to the tarpaulin like argument: "The party has decided in the areas, they have marked and we no". They are interesting reflections and, partly, hit, but there was much more.
The Barça shot 12 times, six between the three sticks and six went. The Madrid, 11 -seven between the three sticks and four was-. It is evident, then , that the Barcelona group generated opportunities, but was missing tarpaulin. Already they know this of "when the pellet does not want to go in...". But it would be simplón remain in this.
The Madrid dominated in the centre of the field, and this does not have at all that see with the possession (62-38 for the Barça), but in how manages the balloon when you have it in your have. The whites play en bloc and are able to generate danger with very little. The Barcelona need inventions of Messi, pursued by a Kovacic tireless. Because Iniesta has lost the verticality and to Rakitic costs him create because it arrives suffocated to the area after his defensive deployment.
The consequence? Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic and Isco dominated the medullary. Without discussion any. And this that was missing Modric, the angular stone of the Madrid -give quite that think-. It confuses sometimes the people the concept centre of the field with playing beautiful. And no always it is like this, although last night Isco gave a recital. Physically, the Madrid is a very powerful team because in this zone of the field has 'stoppers' and people that -forgive the vulgariedad- the menea.
The party broke in the second half after the goal in own door of Hammered. It was then when the Barça needed to risk and destapó all his lacks in this zone, unable to level the strengths to go down to defend -like this arrived the two white goals of Cristiano and Asensio- while the Madrid had aeroplanes to the counterattack.
Sergi Roberto asks minutes
The Barcelona midfield player went out in the last 20 minutes by Iniesta, and the reality is that it infected of the bad level of his mates. Desorientado, little could do in front of the diabolical white counterattacks. Waiting for seeing if it arrives Paulinho, possibly Roberto was one of the most interesting options to recover lung in the centre of the field. Physical sacrifice, tactical intelligence and driving of balloon. And of the house.
