The match against Espanyol did not go as expected by a Barça team that was looking for the three points. The best performance has been that of Marcos Alonso, but his goal would not be enough for victory
The FC Barcelona has not been able to happen of the tie in the last edition of the derbi Catalan, a meeting that seemed to have begun to play from the psychological a lot before Antonio Mateu Lahoz pitara the start of the actions in the Spotify Camp Nou. Situations like the cautelar in favour of Robert Lewandowski and the measures taken by the Barcelona team regarding the entry to the stadium finished for heating the previous of the crash. To continuation, the individual performances of the effective culés:
Ter Stegen: Without difficulties
The German goalkeeper has showed once again be a guarantee in the Barcelona arch. During the greater part of the time lució solid and little demanded. However, it has not been hit in the played of the penalti earned by Joselu. The international with the 'Mannschaft tried to distract him to the not showing his intentions of the side to the that would choose to launch, but the player of the Espanyol would deceive it when finishing by the centre.
Jordi Alba: Cumplidor
After having left good feelings in the Glass of the World, the one of L'Hospitalet has ratified why Xavi Hernández follows trusting he. As it already is usual in him, knew to collaborate in actions of attack in search of the disequilibrium that looked for the Barcelona team in a party trabado, even with a dangerous centre that Marcos Alonso could not connect. However, his performance would remain marked by his expulsion.
Andreas Christensen: Unsuspecting
In spite of leaving some doubts in the first minutes, the Danish gave signals to settle well to the rhythm of the party and to the dynamics of game fixed by the trainer. It knew to go out with the balloon dominated when the situation required of him, knew to keep order and follow the logic of the game. It served an assistance for Marcos Alonso and was about to to sign the second target of the culés.
Sergi Roberto: Solid
Splitting like right side, this position that so many headaches has him ocasionado to the míster along the season and that has carried to the managerial board to have like priority a player for this demarcation of face to the windows of signings, the one of Reus knew to join up to the compasses of the meeting, although perhaps it has thrown in fault some contribution in the attack.
Marcos Alonso: Brilliant
Of all the effective of defensive cut, and possibly of all the presents in the derbi Catalan, the Madrilenian has been flawless in spite of not to find in his natural position and split like central defender of left-handed profile. Aided by Christensen, went the attendant of 'open the tin' in the commitment with the partial advantage for the culés, tarnished performance by the penalti on Joselu.
Jules Koundé: Regulate
When situating in the demarcation of right side, that in occasions has manifested to not to seat him very all time that his natural position is the one of central defence, the runner-up of the world knew to exert without greater setbacks offering guarantees deep down, although it was missing resolution in the attack in the general balance of the party.
Alejandro Balde: Uncomfortable
After leaving intermittent performances in his debut mundialista with the Spanish selection, the left side jumped to do his work, but with a situation of the party desfavorable for him in which it did not know to develop his game of efficient and effective way. A discreet performance for the defender in the turn of LaLiga.
Frenkie Of Jong: Polyvalent
Once again, the Dutch has left clear his commitment with the Barcelona and his invalid intention to change of airs. The midfield player has known to adapt to any zone of the field where the trainer require his services. So much in the role of mediocentro as in the one of interior, knew to be to the height, creating disequilibrium and keeping order when it was precise.
The one of The Palaces and Villafranca also has left one memorable performance in the Spotify Camp Nou knowing when trick the rival game to generate danger. Irreverent and frontal, went the protagonist of one of the clearest opportunities of danger created by the picture blaugrana. However, it would leave concerned to the fans and to the technical body when abandoning the field with signals of pain.
Prpers having jumped to the field after the minutes of rest, the Barcelona captain has not stood out by his participation in the commitment. It expected that his arrival gave a different approach to the actions in the Spotify Camp Nou, but the reigning dynamics finished for keeping along the successive minutes in spite of keeping the rhythm of touch and possession.
Although until the moment the Brazilian keeps in doubt by the performance showed in his process of adecuación after his arrival from the English football, his performance in front of the pericos does not have desentonado when exerting by the right band, although again the precision in his definition has missed , further of a key pass that Lewandowski did not know to take advantage of and a finish diverted.
Ansu Fati: Protagónico
After having been 'dosificado' by part of the míster, the Hispanic forward-guinean has commissioned to show that it is for big things and the derbi Catalan has not been the exception. Ansu Knew to keep the rhythm during his presence in the field, but the played did not finish to go out well of the all in his stage of ending.
After having jumped to the field like the 'apple of the discord' once that his sanction was raised by a measure cautelar, the Pole, main offensive referent of the Barcelona, did not have the puntería of previous presentations. It could mark the so much that finally would carry the signature of Marcos Alonso, but would disappear in the rest of the meeting.
Looking for redeem and win once again the confidence by part of Xavi Hernández, the French was one of the best effective of attack along the party in front of the Espanyol. His accustomed confined by the band generated occasions of risk for the pericos, but the last chamber of the field followed doing difficult of destrabar for the Barcelona.
Ferran Torres: Desorientado
After jumping to the lawn with the partial advantage for the venues, his arrival did not translate in a substantial change in the dynamics of game. The Valencian did not finish to fit with the rest of the pieces on the field in search to create greater occasions of danger that allowed to increase the advantage of a Barcelona that has gone back to 'puncture'.
