The one of Terrassa does not go by bad way because it conquered the Supercopa of Qatar and tieed up the presence of his in the next World-wide of Clubs, but of course is not satisfied with the results that have harvested in the last weeks, in which they have increased the doubts.

Three consecutive defeats have put in alert to the team of the capital, that after a big start of campaign atascó in the Champions League Asian, lengthened his disappointment in a commitment in the Qatar Stars League and finished his pothole with another defeat in the Glass of the Emirate.

The first discontent arrived in the international competition, where the group qatarí has remained in check. The To the-Hilal struck him with strength in the stadium Jassim Bin Hamad in the gone of semifinals, since the expulsion of Abdelkarim Hassan resulted definite. The 1-1 momentary turned into a dangerous 1-4, that leaves very of face the classification for the Saudi and that forces to the pupilos of the Catalan to look for a dificilísima traced back.

Although this will not result so determinant, also there was slip in the championship of the regularity, that confirmed that it is necessary to improve a lot for the next parties. Also home, the To the-Rayyan repeated goleada, in a meeting in which the square with headquarters in Doha was always in tow. It attained to sustain until the 2-2, but afterwards desangró until the 2-4 that reflected the marker after the pitido final.

And finally, the première copero was not the expected, and has done to sound all the alarms. Xavi opted by some rotations in his duel with the To the-Wakra and the plan did not go out as it expected, because after equalising to one just before the rest, in the go through changing rooms already had lumbered with him a 1-3 that finish turning into a 1-5, that ensures, with total firmness, that it is necessary to react what before to avoid more problems.

The next appointment of the To the-Sadd of Xavi is with the Champions, in which it looks for a dreamed traced back. It will be difficult because some of his best men are sanctioned, but the qatarís do not renounce to give the surprise in Saudi Arabia and surpass to the To the-Hilal. It was as it was, the most important is to give good image and recover the good feelings, with put it in the horizon to plant in the final of the tournament.
