Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona still does not have at all clear the future of Raphinha and Joao Félix. Although the finances of the club aim to go out of both like the wisest option, so much the Brazilian like the luso have ratified his wish to remain to base of good performances in the last weeks. In front of the UD The Palms, an assistance of the '14' to the '11' cost three points of gold that allow to the Barça be still in 'career' by the title of League.

And it is that so much the extreme like the mediapunta loaded with the offensive weight of the team when the fault of puntería put in aprietos to the Barcelona group by enésima time in the season. The one of Carry Cheerful had converted a so much in the first part that the VAR decided to cancel by a controversial offside, but obtained revancha in the complement thanks to a perfect assistance of a Joao that only needed a pair of minutes on the green to mark differences.

The numbers endorse the continuity of Raphinha

Raphinha, in fact, has participated in five goals in his last five parties with the Barça (2 goals and 3 assistances) and the culés never have lost when the Brazilian converts (14 victories and 2 ties in 16 occasions). Besides, the one of Carry Cheerful registers the best average goleador in LaLiga in what to extremes refers this season, with a so much each 212 minutes. Regarding assistances, the '11' is colíder of the team with 10, one less than Ílkay Gündogan (11).

Of equal way, the forward of 27 years situates fourth in the list of goleo of the Barça, with 6 targets in 29 parties, equalising the figure achieved by Lamine Yamal in 40 apparitions. Joao Félix is third with 9 goals in 35 parties, whereas Ferran Torres (11) and Robert Lewandowski (20) lead the offensive section culé. Another merit of the Brazilian is that it has played fewer minutes that the rest of attackers culés (1.472'), without explaining to Vitor Roque.

Joao Félix also has improved a lot in the last weeks

By his part, the one of Viseo also is it to him putting difficult to the directive of face to the summer, more than with statistics, with his attitude in the day in day out and inside the field. The Saturday went back to be acting, but revolutionised the party grieve ingresó by Fermín taking the control of the game with passes that broke the exhausted Canarian saga. In addition to the assistance to Raphinha, the '14' also filtered an exquisite pass to Ferran Torres and brushed the so much with a finish to the stick point-blank.

In this sense, Joao has showed commitment and delivery, knowingly of the complex that it will be his situation in summer. Without too many beaux 'top', the luso knows that the best for his career is to be still in Barcelona, although the Catalans hardly will put the money that asks the Athletic (around 80 millions) by his traspaso. Much more feasible would be to renew his cession, but the 'colchoneros', for the moment, do not seem very interested in this road.

Very different is the situation of Raphinha regarding the market refers . Further that the Newcastle, one of the most interested clubs in his traspaso, will not be able to try ficharle this year, the Arab league bidding with strength by him with a very interesting offer so much for the club as for the footballer. This yes, the extreme does not have intentions to leave the Barça, much less to go out of the European elite and follows stuck to his clause of rescission (1.000 'kilos') to remain .
