The FC Barcelona has gone in in a stretch of season in which no longer voucher fail. The culés have three points of disadvantage regarding the Real Madrid in the League and have remained without margin of error. This past Sunday, in Benito Villamarín, the blaugrana brushed the prick, but finish sobreponiendo and winning by 2-3. It is a vital victory to be still in the fight by LaLiga and face with better feelings these two next weeks.

In the following 15 days, the barcelonistas will not move of Barcelona and will receive in the Camp Nou to Getafe first and to Eibar afterwards. The crash against the armeros will be just before visiting to the Naples in the gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League. Justo afterwards, will arrive the Classical in Santiago Bernabéu, where could decide LaLiga. In summary, the Barça has two weeks to prepare to consciousness two commitments that will be decisive in the future of the campaign.

The newspaper 'Sport' ensures that Quique Setién​ plans to work with the team these next 15 days with the end to find solutions to the errors of these last weeks. The Cantabrian wants to do a pre-season 'express' in which pulir several appearances of game so that the Barcelona arrive in his best moment to the League of Champions and to the Classical. The parties against Athletic and Betis, although they have left good things, also have showed a lot of things that it is necessary to improve for the crashes that decide titles.

One of the things that the santanderino could organise better is the system of game that wants for his Barça. He same has left clear that is used to to vary of training as it seem him, but so much change does not seem a suitable option for a team under construction. In 15 days without going out of Barcelona, Setién could give at last with the key and mentalizar to his footballers of how want to that they play and how want to that they plant in the field. The 4-3-3 or the 4-4-2 seem the most logical options apparently to date.

Also it will insist the ex of the Betis in the exit of balloon. The technician wants that his Barça go out always with the ball played, although sometimes it lose balloons. The trainer culé will work in this appearance and especially in the placing of his footballers in the case that it lose the ball. Arturo Vidal lost a balloon against the Betis in midfield and Fekir did not forgive in the against in front of Ter Stegen. It is not the first time that this sucede and is something in what it has to work a lot.

Tranquility, unit and physical work to be to 100%

Also to physical level will be important this fortnight, since the players have not had break with the Glass and the League these weeks. I hammered it is right now touched, Vidal was it until does at all and the own Messi carries playing with annoyances a time. Without trips of by half, Setién will be able to do a 'mini pre-season' so that all the staff arrive in optimum physical conditions to the Champions and to the Madrid-Barça.

Finally, the ex of The Palms or Lugo wants to that his plantel was more joined that never to try go to by the two titles that there is at stake. The wrap of Messi and Abidal after the statements of the French did not help to improve the climate of the changing room and this is something that Setién wants to change. The Cantabrian knows that to play well also is necessary to be calm and joined and this is what goes to propose these weeks. It is not long to do all this, but will have to be the sufficient to tune and go to by everything.
