The meeting that had the FC Barcelona this 2 October, and in front of the Celtic of Vigo, was the last of the seven crashes followed that had the Barcelona in these last four weeks before the stop by selections of this week. Although Luis Enrique warned before the party of the difficulty of the visit to the Galicians, and with the precedent of the past course, the team taken out in front of the celtiñas was different to the that expected .

It was not the one of the Celtic a party to walk doing experiments and "Struggle" knew it. After falling goleados by four to one in the gone of the past 2015-2016, the Asturian trainer happened the previous days warning to his men of the danger. However, it resulted really odd to see as it went out with an eleven in which they were missing key mainstays like Javier Mascherano, Andrés Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic.

Now, to past bull, is easy to do conclusions, but was really necessary to leave to any of these mainstays in the bench? In his place went in Jeremy Mathieu, André Gomes and Rafinha Alcántara, three footballers that were shipwrecked in Vigo and that did not go more than spectrums that fell inside the vorágine celestial. This team has basic wardrobe and therefore has to to use it, but always with intelligence and looking for touch the suitable keys.

The drop of Leo Messi was the extremely important to put in liza to any of the midfield players titled like Andrés Iniesta or Ivan Rakitic. As it saw in the second time, everything changed with the one of Fuentealbilla in the left-handed interior, endowing of depth to his and erigiéndose in the engine of the team. Practically it gave the first time, as in front of the Gladbach, but in this occasion the culés found with a three to zero in his against impossible to trace back. 

It can not customise the defeat in an only person and neither has to demonizar to Luis Enrique by his decisions, as like boss that is he is the load with the defeat and afterwards no reluce in the victory. The Asturian has sufficient credit not to be signalled then , besides, very analysed his decisions from the logical point of view, everything has a why. "I struggle" it could be thinking in the big wear that will have his men in the following two commitments with his selections and thus it preferred to give them rest. Spain contests two crashes of high tension, one in front of Italy and another in front of Albania, far of the Iberian Peninsula. Two trips that can wear them out and that thus they expected his turn in the footpath. No it played it to him, this yes, with Sergio Busquets.

In fact, the doubt of the mediocentro of Badía of if it went in or no in the alignment kept to the end. The need of his qualities in a meeting of these characteristics did that the technician bet by him. Unlike Ivan Rakitic that it will be the engine of a Croatia without Luka Modric, lesionado of his left knee. Kosovo and Finland, both out of house, are the duels of the Balkan. Who went to say that the mediocentro Catalan went to fail in the two first goals and went to find renqueante during the minutes that was on the field. As it has said , do of trainers to past party is very easy. And complain in the month of April or May that the players are "melted" physically also-
