FC Barcelona left a show at the Santiago Bernabéu, with a recital from start to finish against a Real Madrid that 'resigned' from the match very soon and let the Catalans play at will
It surprises that, in spite of that it was a recital from beginning to end, the FC Barcelona did not do his best party of the season in Santiago Bernabéu. It was more demanded in other clashes and in the house of the eternal rival won almost without opposition. Can speak of démerito of the madridistas, but also of a strategy without failure of the team directed by Xavi Hernández to neutralise to the Real Madrid and play to pleasure, with the feeling that the result remained very short for what went the clash.
The Barça was the only team in the field after the chamber of hour of the party, like a wolf that subjects to his prey and does not leave him escapatoria. They shut to the Madrid and him nublaron the night so that they did not find answers, neither in the field neither from the bench. Xavi went back to win in the approach and signed a very correct party that is still in the line of what comes doing since it returned to the group culé. It was the same script of all the parties, with key changes to brake the fortresses madridistas, but that resume in the return of the Barça to his origins.
The culés went out to presionar the exit of the balloon of a Madrid that could not complete, in almost all the party, three passes followed. Ronald Araújo minimised to Vinícius Jr and left him without options to run to look for the balloons to go out to the against. To this, it is necessary to add that the Barça lost very few balloons and that the centre of the Barcelona field imposed , almost without opposition, to control almost to his antojo the party. 'Noquearon' To the madridistas and left them without strengths to compete. And there it was the key.
The extremes, the 'wonder' of the Barça
Play with extremes very open and smart to launch in career was key in the Bernabéu (and in all the parties of the culés), especially because by the bands the Madrid had two weak points: Dani Carvajal, that could not win him a career to Ferran Torres and left him do party, in addition to Nacho Fernández that it was not to the height and lost all the direct duels against an Ousmane Dembélé that was 'on fire' once again and took advantage of of the uncertainty of the canterano madridista to do party by the band and, between other things, give two passes of goal.
'Aubagol': Which signing of the Barça!
Leave went to Aubameyang of the keys of the party would be an insult and 'happen' of the most differential player that had Santiago Bernabéu during the night of the Sunday. The gabonés, that carries seven goals in seven parties of LaLiga, went back to 'wet' and confirms that it has been the most effective signing of the Barcelona (and free). Has an idyll with the difficult goal to explain and has fallen of foot in the Barcelona group. It has adapted of wonder and against the Real Madrid left an exhibition to read the spaces that left the two head offices madridistas, that were not few.
The gabonés took advantage of , besides, of his big connection with Ousmane Dembélé, with which understands of wonders and combines to perfection. That 'feeling' caused the first goal: The French received to leave to Nacho on the way and put a centre in the area to a 'Auba' that won the position to Eder Militao and cabecear at the end of the network of Courtois. For his doublet, went Ferran Torres the one who assisted him: it Filtered for the gabonés and beat to the guardameta madridista hammering the ball in front of his exit.
The 'resignation' of the Madrid
The bad approach of Carlo Ancelotti benefited to the Barça in the field, from the beginning. It positioned to Luka Modric like false nine, for 'suplir' to Karim Benzema and went a shot in the foot. This change facilitated the triangulations of the culés in the rival field and deleted all the options of the madridistas to approach or test to Marc-André ter Stegen that did not have work, but was not the only.
The Madrid played without rhythm, capacity to combine and were soft in defence. It did not save neither Eder Militao that came being a rock in the low part of the field. From the bench, Ancelotti neither found answers: it happened to play with three head offices and Ferran Torres planted in the area to clear the just party after the beginning of the second part, for afterwards go testing with formulas that did not go to work in front of a Barça with ideas very clear that surpassed the lines of "pressure" madridistas very rapido and easy.
