FC Barcelona managed to add the three points against Villarreal, but the team's game was again apathetic, not very intense and without identity
This Tuesday, the FC Barcelona achieved to defeat to the Villarreal and add three very necessary points so that the team no descolgase of the first positions of LaLiga Santander. The culés came to lose in Granada in one of the worst parties in long and is true that the fact to win was a relief for the staff, for the technical body and for the fans.
The problem went back to be that the game of the team did not go for nothing good, as yes it had been it in other parties home like the victories against the Real Betis or Valencia. The team followed infected by the catastrophe of The Cármenes and again saw again to a Barça predictable, without ideas in attack, with a circulation of slow balloon and with problems backwards.
If we stop us to analyse the goals and the played of danger, everything reduces to the individual quality. Antoine Griezmann invented a finish of unusual head to centre of Leo Messi in played of strategy to mark the first goal. The second was a cañonazo far of Arthur. In the second time, the only played of danger were born of the played individual of Ousmane Dembélé and Ansu Fati...
But neither trace of the collective game that it has to characterise to a team that wants to aspire to win all the competitions. The worst of everything is that, happened the party, go out Ernesto Valverde in press conference to say that, in general lines, the team played well. With this fault of self-criticism, afterwards goes to Dortmund and the third of the Bundesliga paints you the face in a duel that could finish 3-0.
In spite of the victory, it is necessary to begin to change a lot of things in the team if they pretend harvest successes. And it is not an affirmation tribunera or that can think in hot apparently in the last weeks. It is a certainty, pure realism. If the team does not begin to have a minimum idea of to what wants to play or of how do it, goes to suffer a lot in important parties.
Still there is time
The staff already is made and no longer can have big changes to level of sportive planning. But still there is time to adjust a lot of things so that the team can give the face in key moments of the competition. This yes, the culés have to ensure the pass to eighth of the Champions League and no desengancharse of the head of LaLiga.
