In eight games played in the 2022-2023 season, FC Barcelona have not been charged a penalty. There are several footballers who could assume the role in the course
Since Leo Messi left of the FC Barcelona, in 2021, has been the doubt of who would have to earn the penaltis in the Barcelona picture. In the past course, Memphis Depay assumed the role and had a positive balance, on line general. Of five launched, hit four (against Raise, Valencia, Elche and Eintratch of Frankfurt) and failed one, against the Ray Vallecano, in the night that the Barcelona picture destituyó to Ronald Koeman like trainer.
In all his career, Memphis has stood out for being a solvent thrower of penaltis, with a tarpaulin of 76,1% (of 42 launched, annotated 32). It is, in fact, the third player of the current staff with better percentage regarding the quantity of launchings. Robert Lewandowski leads the ranking with 71 marked of 79 possible (91%). With the Bayern of Munich was the cobrador official and also with Poland, his selection.
Everything seems to indicate that the ariete Polish will repeat the role in the Barça. It has converted , in very little time, in the big offensive leader of the team; by what contributes and generates on the terrain of game. The good news, in any case, is that they will have alternative in case Lewandowski is not available to earn a penalti. In addition to the option of Memphis, there are several players with percentage of positive tarpaulin to the hour to confront from the eleven metres to the rival goalkeeper.
Alternatives in the Barça
Franck Kessié is one of them. This Saturday annotated one with his selection, Ivory Coast, and always has showed very solvent. Of 37 attempts, has annotated 32 penaltis (86%). Also it is Raphinha, although the reality is that it has launched many less than the rest of the mentioned: 7 goals of 8 possible (87,5%), as well as Ferran Torres, that has annotated the two that has tried (100%).
In the past season, the one of Foios annotated with the Barça these two penaltis, against the Naples in the tie 1-1 in the Europe League and in the goleada by 4-0 in front of the Osasuna, in LaLiga Santander. Frenkie Of Jong also has 100% (two of two), to the equal that Pablo Tower (three of three). Ousmane Dembélé, by his part, is another alternative (66,6% of tarpaulin, with two goals in three attempts).
