It is true that the FC Barcelona leaves leader of First Division and that remained first in the phase of groups of the Champions League, but the resultadismo can not do forget that the FC Barcelona is having grave problems of game in the present season, especially by the little solidity that shows the team.

The defensive system of the Barça of Ernesto Valverde is not working at all, especially in the pressure. Leo Messi and Luis Suárez are practically freed of any effort in the helps and the team splits to the hour of presionar up to recover the balloon. This problem does that the defence remain entirely sold and exposed in the contragolpes.

In parties like the ones of the Athletic of Madrid, the Real Sociedad or the Real Madrid, besides, the FC Barcelona had a clear problem of circulation of the ball, something that awarded all the command to his opponents and, being the one of Valverde a little accustomed team to defend, the rival occasions multiplied with ease putting in aprietos the goal of Marc-André ter Stegen.

All these defensive problems no only move an evident feeling of defensive fragility to the Barcelona team, but also in the statistical data. In 18 days of League, the FC Barcelona has fit a total of 21 goals, more than one by party, and could have been more if it did not go by the formidable season of Ter Stegen,​ that is saving points.

The starts with the Dutch technician, in spite of the recitals of Ronaldinho, were very complicated and the sportive results were tremendously bad in the first turn.

Curiously, everything changed in the second turn, casually or no, after the arrival of Edgar Davids. The Barcelona team made a second part of championship tremenda and remained to the doors of the title of League. It will be able the FC Barcelona of Ernesto Valverde to invest the dynamics of his game and do a second half of season to the height of the one of the 03-04?
