FC Barcelona could not get past a draw on its visit to Rayo Vallecano, in a match in which the team went from less to more and did not react in time. Xavi Hernández insisted on the change of mentality, but... aren't there problems, too, with the approach?

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona had to conform with a point in his visit to the Ray Vallecano, in a party in which himself can argue the errors or little referee's intervention, but in which the main problem of the team of Xavi Hernández has been, precisely, they same. The culés did not show an efficient version and, once again, have paid by his own errors. They need, of urgent way, a shake to face a stretch of season that will be decisive.

And it is that what him 'avecina' to the Barça is not little thing. The duel against the Port wine, this Tuesday from the 21:00 hours (9:00 PM CET) in the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Compannys, can be decisive of face to the classification to the eighth of final of the Champions League. After the defeat against the Shakhar, can not add a new trip. Especially in front of a Portuguese group that, also, wants the leadership.

Xavi Hernández, forced to retouch his blackboard

The problem is that the picture blaugrana does not arrive to the party with positive feelings. All the contrary. The tie against the Ray Vallecano (1-1) has left them very 'touched' and with the need to look for solutions as soon as possible. It can be a shot in the foot, if no. Xavi did reference to that it is necessary a change of mentality, but the problem goes much more there. It has to change, yes or yes, several appearances in which the team is failing constantly. The problem? Maybe there is not sufficient time.

Against the Ray went back to exist problems in the centre of the field, although they went back to coincide in the lawn Pedri González and Frenkie of Jong, the 'jugones' of the team. Yes it existed a mejoría in the medullary and was key the 'retouch' so that I Cancel stepped inner zones and was in capacity to take part more, but was not sufficient. And the name of Oriol Romeu goes back to go in in the equation.

The one of Ulldecona went back to be the weak point in the centre of the field and has remained clear qie is not a player that can be constantly playing between lines, to back to the goal. In Vallecas, that was the 'requirement' that had and failed in the majority of the occasions. Everything seems to indicate that, in the big commitments, will be Ílkay Gündogan the one who accompany to Frenkie of Jong in the base of the played. It is the point that, probably, will offer a bit more than clairvoyance from the medullary.

The Barça follows without being comfortable when has the balloon

And from this point, Xavi has to do retouchings so that the team seats more comfortable from the possession and can launch to the attack with fewer difficulties, or with more sense. They have been many the occasions in which the team, by slowness or little clairvoyance, remains without ideas when it arrives to the rival goal. It is the possession without 'intention' of all the life. And that prejudices them to the hour to generate occasions.

Another factor that goes in in a lot of dispute is the fact that the goals are resisting more than the account. With the tie in front of the Ray Vallecano, rose to twelve the consecutive parties in which the Barça has not been able to mark three goals, from the traced back against the Celtic (3-2), whereas they have been eleven clashes been still in those that have been, maximum, two targets those that have been able to annotate. Explaining, in the majority of clashes, with three attackers and has players that can arrive from second line, the team would have to be in conditions to see more goals. And, in front of the Port wine, can be decisive.

The wrap of the Barça in the right, with solution?

Finally, although against the Ray did not suffer more than the account and Xavi implemented a tactical modification so that Christensen 'allowed' that Cancel could play more in the centre of the field without consequences 'grave' in the defence, the work is not completed. The trainer has to insist in that the shrinkings by the bands no 'cost' so much to the team. It is not a secret for anybody that the Portuguese is an invaluable resource when it jumps to the attack and generates a lot of superiorities, to the hour to defend is not solvent. By there it has suffered more than the account and in a so demanding party, against the 'dragons', does not be necessary descartar that the Barça play with Ronald Araújo in the right-handed band.
