FC Barcelona seems incapable this season of being able to win games in which they have no other option. The Catalans once again struggled defensively against an inferior opponent, and in their own half, and wasted a good opportunity in LaLiga
The FC Barcelona moved away even more of the leadership of LaLiga after equalising in front of the Granada in a party of goals (3-3) and defensive errors in Lluís Companys this Sunday. The Barcelona team, in the second week of February, remained to 10 points of a Real Madrid that in spite of having won there was 'helped' to the ones of Xavi Hernández doing trip to the Girona, but for the culés finally has served of little.
And it is that further of the victory of the team merengue in Santiago Bernabéu the day Saturday, the Barça lost the opportunity to remain to alone three units of the Girona and especially to clear the doubts on his direct access to the next Champions League. Besides, keep of course to eight points of the Madrid in the fight by the title and highlighting the dispute of the Classical second suspender belt of the season.
Girona and Athletic of Madrid will be able to follow complicating the season of the Barça
But for the ones of Xavi the tie in front of the Granada has finished meaning not being able to do neither a thing neither the another. The fall of the team of Míchel has not had a too notable impact for the Barça regarding being able to see much more near of this second place, as well as move away also of this dangerous fourth place that right now keeps the Athletic of Madrid, but now 'alone' three units by behind the Barcelona group.
The rojiblancos fell in his visit to the Seville and the Barça could despegarse of way almost definite, leaving a difference of five points and of nine if besides we take in account to the Athletic Club and his fifth current place. Although by moments would seem descabellado think in a Barça without Champions the next season, the reality is that days like these are the ideal so that the Catalan team could move away these 'ghosts', and simply could not.
Now, and after 24 days, the Barça remains to 10 points of the leadership that the Madrid will try to administer the best possible in the next month, taking into account the return of the Champions League, and to five of a Girona that without Glass will be 100% focused in not following leaving points on the way. The Barça, with the Naples in the horizon, will need hilar triumphs in front of Celtic and Getafe to close February with feelings much less negative that the current, but knowing that this weekend left to go an important opportunity to follow dreaming with repeating the title in LaLiga.
