The goals from corner kicks are a utopia for Ronald Koeman's FC Barcelona and against the Dynamo, once again, the Catalans were evidenced
The FC Barcelona has had in favour, in this beginning of season, 71 corners. How many goals have been born of these launchings from the corner? Any. A situation more than alarming considering that the team directed by Ronald Koeman has big strikers. Against the Dynamo of Kiev, in the third duel of the phase of groups of the Champions League, remained more than evidenciados... With figures that begin to concern.
It is necessary to begin with that the command of the Barcelona was more than absolute, but the possession of the balloon did not have at all that see with what the Barça showed in thefield , especially in the second time, in which it jumped to the field a dense team, without ideas neither speed and that, of some way, did not have spirits to compete. However, they achieved to keep the result in favour (1-0) and finish with a possession of 63%-37%.
It is a percentage that speaks that the Barça was master and gentleman of the party, but... What did with the balloon? It remains the feeling that very little or at all. The Barcelona looked for to concern to the Dynamo, but without tarpaulin, but also achieved eleven launchings from the corner, whereas the Ukrainians did not have any. It is a very high number, but the team of Koeman did not take advantage of any.
In previous years, the corners were peligrosímos for the Barça, but of this feeling does not remain at all. The culés do not try, not even, finish the played and opt by the corners, in the majority of the opportunities, in short. In both sides executes them Memphis Depay, From the left, centres direct and enclosed, whereas by the right side, has needed to one of his mates so that it touch it backwards and centre with effect. All has been abysmal.
A lot for improving in the Barça
The Barça is in a moment very delicate, more than what expected in this start of season. Ronald Koeman has not given with the key of the team and every time understands less the supusta confidence that has Joan Laporta the Dutch. It is true, the culés have won to the Raise, Valencia or Dynamo but, how have won? They have achieved solutions? And there it roots the big problem. Against the Ukrainians, achieved to carry out the party and the result, but with a too poor image.
The Barcelona can not cost only of the individualities, is something impossible to achieve in a complete season. Koeman Has to answer to the confidence that have given him from the club and form a team that was competitive and that it can give 'more' that what offers right now, that can 'reach' to win to the Raise or Valencia... But it can be it to surpass to the Madrid, Bayern and others 'big'?
