If it does some years somebody had said that the FC Barcelona went to finish winning more by hit that by game probably anybody had believed it to him. The same there was sucedido if somebody had ensured that the Real Madrid no longer would win by hit, but it would do it through his game. But the reality to day of today is that the group barcelonista is the one who is putting the goals and the madridista the one who puts the football in LaLiga.

To the Barcelona is them sobrando goal and hit, but is missing them football and game by all sides. The merengues, on the other hand, without being exhibiting the brilliant football that always has exhibited the Barcelona, yes are playing well, but is penalising them his tremenda lacking of hit and goal. The two big of LaLiga seem to have changed his papers this campaign and, for the moment, the things are going out them better to the ones of Ernesto Valverde.

The Barça goes to finish the 2019 like leader of the competition, with two points of advantage regarding the whites. This difference has to mainly to the offensive power that is showing the group blaugrana, that carries 47 goals in favour, 14 more than the Madrid. Because, although the game always was the best way to arrive to the triumph, does not be necessary to forget that in the football the most important to win is to mark goal. And this Barça of Leo Messi, Luis Suárez or Antoine Griezmann of goal has more than enough.


The Madrid, unfortunately for them, no so much. The madridistas only have to a big goleador in his eleven initial, and is not another that Karim Benzema. The French carries 12 goals in League and is keeping in the fight by LaLiga to his team almost without help to level goleador. Sergio Bouquets, with three goals, is the maximum second goleador of the white team, that is having grave problems to turn into goal the occasions that generates.

The Barça, although it has had big performances this course, generally, has not played well and in a lot of occasions has cost him generate opportunities ofgoal . The Madrid has gone of less to more and in the two last months has improved a lot his game. The ones of Zidane are playing better, are generating quite a lot of occasions in his meetings, but are topando in front of his greater enemy: the efficiency of face to goal.

The Barça has a lot of more solutions in attack

If Benzema does not have the day and does not mark, anybody in the group merengue does it. In the Barcelona, instead, if Leo Messi does not have his night, probably have it Luis Suárez or Antoine Griezmann, that every time is more enchufado. And if it is not the day of the trident, perhaps was the one of Arturo Vidal, that carries already five goals in League. The midfield players of the Madrid, instead, are not being a solution in front of the fault of goal of his forwards.

For the moment, east is the summary of what goes of season. The Barça follows leader by his tremenda hit and because has a big team, more than by the very that is playing. The culés, besides, are defending worse that never and already carry 21 goals against. In the Bernabéu, instead, are defending much better and are the second less goleados of the competition with 12. But the reality is that in the football wins the one who marks more goals and no the one who receives less. Therefore the Barcelona go first and the merengues will finish the year in the second place.

Luckily for the barcelonistas, with a staff of so much level the normal is that the game improve with the step of the months. If this Barça improves his football and closes rows in defence, with Messi, Suárez and company up, could compete by the Champions and win once again LaLiga. In the Madrid, instead, improve the fault of goal without signings seems more complicated. The only solution of Zidane, that does not want to fichar another '9', could be explain more with Jovic and expect that Hazard recover and improve a lot his figures. Whatever happens, it will see to the turn on holiday of Christmas with the Supercopa in the horizon.
