Barça de Quique Setién is starting to work and will face the key week that appears with high morale after the latest results and the game deployed
Quique Setién is of those trainers that has the so clear ideas about what wants of his team that, when it was appointed trainer of the first staff of the FC Barcelona began to doubt about if would have sufficient time, to half of season, to transmit what wanted to his players. His starts, besides, still generated more doubts by the feelings that gave the game.
In parties like the ones of the Granada or of the Ibiza, saw to a team that wanted the ball but that did not have ideas to attack enclosed defences. Against Valencia, arrived the disaster with a hideous party and a painful defeat that carried to Setién to abandon definitively the idea to play with three central defences. With the step of the weeks, the Cantabrian agitated the coctelera to find with the recipe of a necessary mejoría.
Setién Recovered the 4-3-3 and the team began to improve slightly until the party of Saint Mamés against the AthleticClub . The FC Barcelona remained deleted of the Glass of Rey, but for the first time saw to a team with the clear ideas in attack, reliable in defence and generating some hope of face to the future. Some feelings that have kept in the last parties and, of course, with better results.
Besides, in the goleada against the Eibar, there was something tremendously positive: the formidable recital of Leo Messi that, after four parties without seeing goal, lumbered with him four goals to the Basque group. It is true that had seen to the very effective Argentinian in the assistances during the last parties, but this Saturday also recovered the puntería in a moment key of the season.
This week, the FC Barcelona will have to face two key parties: the Tuesday will play in Saint Paolo against the Naples the party of gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League; the Sunday, the Barcelona group will play the Classical of the second turn against the Real Madrid in Santiago Bernabéu. Two parties that the culés will face possibly in the best moment of game of the team since Setién arrived and, maybe, of all the season.
With Ansu Fati and Frenkie of Jong rested
Quique Setién made modifications in the alignment that the FC Barcelona presented this Saturday and did not bet by the titularity of players like Frenkie of Jong or Ansu Fati, that carried an important load of minutes in the last weeks. So much the Dutch like the one of Guinea-Bissau aim to headlines next Tuesday.
