FC Barcelona has been winning six consecutive games, but the good results do not cover that the current level of the team does not give to reach the objectives

It touches reflexionar deeply on the irregularity of a FC Barcelona that carries six consecutive parties winning but that still does not know to what play, if it is to golds or to bastos or which keys has to touch so that the feelings improve. The party against the Slavia Prague, in which the Czechs cornered to the Catalans​, is the greater proof that to the game culé see him the sewings.

Seeing the eleven type that Ernesto Valverde is employing, the bet by the possession and the touch seem clear. Sergio Busquets, Arthur Melo and Frenkie of Jong are the midfield players whereas, in the offensive trident, the presence continued of Antoine Griezmann and Leo Messi suppose a bet by the game asociativo and the fast circulation of the ball.

But to the hour of the truth, this Barça is not answering as it would have to. The champion of the modest Czech league drowned to a Barça that saw unable to avoid the occasions and the rival command in the final stretch so much of the first as of the second time. The Barcelona seemed mermados physically and without ideas to save the rival pressure.

Here it is one of the big problems culés: in the periods of more success of the team, was the Barça the one who drowned to his rival with an intense pressure that allowed to recover the balloon in dangerous zones. Now, it is the own Barça the one who in occasions sees subjected to this pressure and that, when it touches to execute it, is not precise and leaves to the exposed team in defence.

The partidazo of the Barça against the Eibar seems now a mere mirage. Against the Slavia, Antoine Griezmann went back to be inoperable encajonado in his left band, the centre of the field lost incomprehensible balloons and went back to be missing defensive forcefulness in some occasions that could avoid .

Like this they do not win titles

Until the moment, the FC Barcelona has not had parties against direct applicants to win the Champions League. The most serious tests were against the Borussia Dortmund (0-0) and the Inter of Milan (2-1) and in both the result was of the little salvable. Teams like the Liverpool, the Manchester City or the Bayern of Munich would not forgive what himself forgave the Slavia.
