Quique Setién premièred with victory against the Granada in the Camp Nou thanks to a solitary goal of Leo Messi. Splitting of the base that the best of the team is can have the Argentinian star, also there are other very positive appearances to stand out that they changed with the Cantabrian technician. By against, there are other appearances in which it will be necessary to improve.

The best

  • High pressure: The FC Barcelona was able against the Granada to advance his lines to suffocate the exit of balloon from backwards of the team nazarí. Leo Messi, Ansu Fati and Antoine Griezmann turned into the first defences of a Barça that attained to recover a lot of balloons in dangerous zones -the decisive goal arrived from a recovery of Riqui Puig- or simply force to the rival to rifar and give the ball.
  • Fewer dangerous losses: The librito of Setién saw very clear and consisted in ensuring the pass to minimise dangerous losses that facilitated the contragolpes of the rival. The possession was exageradamente upper to the one of the Granada (82 percent favourable) and the game went back more patient and much less vertical that the seen with Ernesto Valverde. Like consequence, the Granada only created danger with a far shot of Eteki that gave in the stick.
  • The apparition of the quarry: Setién seems to trust much more in the quarry that his predecessor, Ernesto Valverde. Without Luis Suárez, Ansu Fati was headline and his revulsivo in the second time was Carles Pérez. It is true that both already had been very used by the Txingurri, but the Cantabrian opted besides by Riqui Puig when the team needed ideas. At the end, as we have commented, the youngster mediocentro was decisive recovering the balloon in the played of the goal.

The worst

  • It was missing depth: In a lot of moments of the party, the FC Barcelona confused the patience with the parsimony to the hour of trenzar played. The Granada closed well backwards and minimised spaces, by what in a lot of phases the culés suffered to generate played of danger by fault of the fault of speed in the circulation of balloon. Something that can change with players that were not headlines like Arthur, Riqui Puig or Frenkie of Jong.
  • Fault of goal: Luis Suárez does not go to play in the next four months and the FC Barcelona already gave symptoms to miss him to the hour to drill rival defences. You went of series like Leo Messi or Antoine Griezmann work better if have a '9' of reference, but with the Uruguayan out of fight no longer remains neither one in the staff​. At the end, the Argentinian saved the ballot -as always- but Setién will have to find some form to replace the capacity goleadora of the charrúa.
