Xavi Hernández seems convinced to keep to Raphinha in his eleven while the Brazilian keep the intensity that has showed in the two last parties. Without the necessary brilliance for 'wet', the extreme has been the more punzante of the Barcelona attack, doing the duties by right to give him to the FC Barcelona more depth and options by this band.

In this sense, the effort of the of Carry Cheerful for looking for constantly to Lewandowski with centres to the area is something to stand out. The Pole complained in the beginning of season by a diagram culé that did not benefit him. Well. The '11' has done all the necessary to feed to 'Lewy' with balloons that have left him very very positioned to mark, although the '9' has been totally errático in the definition.

The triumph in front of the Athletic was born of the feet of Raphinha

To his time, Raphinha also has encouraged for associating more with Joao Félix. To the luso has cost him understand with the ex forward of the Leeds United, but in front of Port wine and Athletic both have given important signals of mejoría. No in vain, the goal of the victory in front of the 'colchoneros' was born of the boots of the '11': centre from the right, control and definition of 'crack' of the of Viseu to open the marker.

For the extreme of 26 years was his second assistance in League and the fourth in what it goes of season. Although it do not convert, Raphinha fulfils from the go. Without the electricity of Lamine Yamal, but with the necessary intensity to mark differences in spite of some imprecisions (completed 42 passes, with an effectiveness of the 86 %) own of a player that, in attitude, few times there is something to reproach him.
