Pedri González has been the necessary piece for Barça to unlock a complicated game against Getafe. The victory has been vital to preserve the leadership of the league table
The FC Barcelona has obtained an important victory in the day 18 of LaLiga in front of the Getafe in a party complicated, but in which the ones of Xavi Hernández showed a very good operation in all his lines to fault of the necessary definition for the result. The crash has had very few occasions of goal, but went there where arose the figure of Pedri González to ensure the so much of the triumph that consolidates to the culés in the peak.
During the crash, the azulones showed férreos in defensive works and with some occasions of danger to the moment of contraatacar, efforts mainly headed by Borja Mayoral. Moved away of the command showed in the final of the Supercopa of Spain in front of the Real Madrid in Riad, has not been the best party of the Barça in the season, but the result has been sufficient to step more to the title.
In a crash in which the forwards did not seem to answer to the situation of the party, the played gestada by Andreas Christensen would find in Raphinha to the ideal partner so that the Canarian bent the scales in favour of the venues. The Getafe had jumped to the field with a 5-4-1 that left him very few spaces to the Barcelona to deploy his game in the 'room of machines', but would be this the road for destrabar a dense party. Of this way, the Canarian keeps on being a formidable piece goleadora for the club, when signing so many in clear-cut crashes by scarce margin, as it already occurred in the parties in front of the Celtic (1-0) and Osasuna (1-2).
The azulones played it to him by the defence according to the diagram posed by Quique Sánchez Flores, whereas the Barça tried to open space by means of his extremes, Ousmane Dembélé and Raphinha, without success in the majority of the occasions, but only the rushed forward of the Brazilian, that looks for to redeem in his cycle like Barcelona after so many doubts on his performance, sufficed to ensure the three points.
An error of Pedri almost costs the tie
Meanwhile, the Catalan saga did not suffer greater setbacks given the defensive solidity showed by a Christensen generating played and Jules Koundé that once again follows showing him to Xavi that it manages better in his natural position: the axis of the defence. The Getafe would look for to answer with another so much and was near when taking advantage of an error of Pedri, but the rest of the party would follow with the same dynamics.
