The Chilean midfield player of the FC Barcelona, Arturo Vidal, played an evil split this Sunday against the Athletic of Bilbao and Ernesto Valverde decided to change him in the second part to give entrance to Aleñá. The face of the Chilean, all a poem

The one of this Sunday was not, neither much less, the best party of Arturo Vidal since it landed in the FC Barcelona. Without Arthur Melo by injury, the Chilean midfield player returned to the titularity in front of the Athletic of Bilbao in Saint Mamés, but desentonó with Rakitic and Busquets in the centre of the field, showing imprecise in the combinations and losing balloons that caused contragolpes.

Arturo Vidal was not at all fine in The Cathedral, and this saw it all the barcelonismo and also Ernesto Valverde, the one who did not doubt to the hour to change him in the second half to give entrance to Carles Aleñá, the one who showed a better version that the Chilean and combined better with Rakitic and Busquets in the room of machines, improving the global contribution of the team in the front of attack.

The case is that the Chilean was not at all entonado against the Athletic of Bilbao, and probably he also knew it when it was substituted. From here that it reacted with a face of few friends in the bench of the FC Barcelona, with a reflexive face and of anger that well it would have served for a 'emoji' of Whatsapp or any another social network.

The FC Barcelona has lost to Arthur Melo for a month, in any case, and will have to survive without the Brazilian in the medullary of face to the important parties that remain him for contesting by in front in the calendar. If Arturo Vidal does not put the batteries and recovers the level of previous weeks, the Barcelona team will suffer -and a lot- in the creation of game.

Arturo Vidal and Arthur, two worlds aside

Although it is true that the Chilean contributes other shots like offensive pressure and recovery of balloons, his imprecisions to the hour to combine facilitate the plans of contragolpe of the rival teams, that already know how play him to the FC Barcelona of Ernesto Valverde and this season 2018-19 are putting in serious difficulties to the game of touch and combination culé.

The Barça is not the same with Arturo Vidal that with Arthur, and this know it here and in the Chinese. Perhaps it would be a good occasion to give more minutes -if the Chilean does not improve- to Carles Aleñá, the one who is showing a clear progression when it appears in the alignments of the FC Barcelona, when contributing freshness and fluidity in the centre of the field.
