FC Barcelona offered two faces differentiated: the one of the first part, with a brilliant game, and the one of the second, with a worrisome physical collapse
The past Sunday, the FC Barcelona fell in Santiago Bernabéu (2-0) in a party that, in spite of that the whites recovered the leadership of First Division, is not entirely decisive for the championship by the quantity of days (12) that remain by in front. This yes, the feelings that offered the team are quite inquietantes of face to what subtracts of season.
Especially by the two faces that showed the team. To the Barça of the first time there is not at all that reproach him, further of the puntería and the efficiency in the final metres. The picture of Quique Setién subjected to the of Zinedine Zidane and could leave to the rest with two or three goals of advantage by the quantity of very clear occasions that wasted : a finish of Griezmann, a hand manually of Arthur, another of Messi...
But after the rest did very evident the problems of this team: the Barça collapsed physically to an alarming rhythm and lost all this command that had had in the first time. In fact, the Barcelona group was shut in his field during the greater part of the second time and Marc-André ter Stegen had to appear in several occasions before the unlucky goal of Vinicius.
There is a played that maybe it stage to perfection the physical fall of the FC Barcelona: the hand manually in which Messi remained only in front of Courtois but that finished with Varane and Marcelo winning him the career and the Brazilian clearing the ball. The own captain culé recognised recently that to the Barcelona team, to day of today, "does not reach him" to win the Champions League, and maybe this weakness that the ones of Setién exhibited in the second time corroborate it.
In general lines of the party, the Real Madrid was not better that the Barça. At least, in the futbolístico and explaining the seen in the 90 minutes. But it is clear that the last 40 were dyed entirely of white in an arreón that left to the blaugrana without answer. 40 minutes that finish costing the Classical and that they can finish costing any eliminatory European.
The physical superiority of the rival is something that comes affecting to the FC Barcelona from does some seasons. In eliminatory of Champions stray like the ones of the Juventus of Turín, the Rome or the Liverpool evidenció that the team culé was underneath in this appearance. It is the heel of Achilles of a team that not even freshened by players Griezmann or Of Jong has been able to it esquivar.
