Before the stop of selections of this month of November, the FC Barcelona harvested two painful results: a defeat against the Raise in LaLiga Santander and a tie in front of the Slavia Prague in Champions League that were not forgotten by the back victory against the Celtic of Vigo. You sweat them that there was in the barcelonismo stressed and again aims to Ernesto Valverde.

Now it has arrived the moment that the technician extremeño give a hit of authority and solve a few important subjects before it finish 2019. The calendar until final of year will be dense and with parties very hard and determinants, by what there is not time for more doubts: the Txingurri is forced to give with the key to follow up in all the competitions.

Give dynamism to the game

One of the appearances that Ernesto Valverde has to solve is the one of the flat game, predictable and monotone that is offering the team in his more usual version of this season. With the help of Frenkie of Jong, that is a jugadorazo, and of Arthur Melo, that is braver that the past campaign, it is necessary to begin to elevate the circulation of balloon.

Of course, for this is very important that the ones of up offer desmarques and solutions. Here they go in the Ousmane Dembélé, Antoine Griezmann or Luis Suárez, that are of leftovers qualified to break the rival lines with his desmarques and with his constant movements. Of course, the instructions of the Txingurri are crucial so that all the system work.

Brake the defensive fragility

In his first year in the Barça, Ernesto Valverde achieved that the FC Barcelona won an unusual defensive solidity in the Barcelona group. It was very complicated to mark him a goal to this team, as well as it was very easy to fit one in some moment of the party. From the past campaign and after the change of system of 4-4-2 to 4-3-3, the castle of naipes went to rack and ruin.

To day of today, the Barça is a team very little reliable in the saga and that receives so many with too much ease. Logically, no only it is a problem of the four defences, but of a system of pressure on the rival that is not working. The team is too separate and the opponents find spaces constantly.

Key parties

Before finish the year, the FC Barcelona will see them to him with Borussia Dortmund and Inter of Milan in Champions League and with Real Madrid and Athletic in LaLiga. Four parties that can determine the future of the Barcelona in both competitions and that will require approaches hit of Valverde, that no always is hit in the big appointments.

The role of the signings

The only signing that is fulfilling with the expectations is Frenkie of Jong, that curiously is the only recently arrived that it was not request expresses of Valverde. The Txingurri sighed by the signings of Antoine Griezmann and of Junior Firpo and, now that it has them, does not know where plant to the French so that it surrender and to the Hispanic-dominican, directly, does not give him ball. Of course, it is important that both add.

The injuries

"Never I give a lot of importance to the physical preparation", said the trainer of the FC Barcelona to finals of September. Around the middle of November, the Barcelona team is beating all the registers of injuries habidos or for having. There will be connection between the sentence of Valverde and the number of lesionados? Then , maybe. And maybe also it was time to to put him solution to the subject.

The repudiated

Ivan Rakitic, Carles Aleñá, Moussa Wagué, Junior Firpo... Any of them are having the opportunities that would deserve and, from the beginning, had they. What would have to be four letters to play in profit of the team have turned into four problems like four castles.
