GRAY MATCH OF THE BARCELONA
Barça falls into the Almería trap and leaves the fight for LaLiga more open (1-0)
FC Barcelona has experienced a 'bitter' game on their visit to Almería, in which they never found their best football. A goal from El Bilal left 'KO' to the culés from the equator of the first part
The FC Barcelona has not known to take advantage of the 'prick' of the Real Madrid that left him the title of League served in tray. In the house of a very serious and intelligent Almería, the Barcelona signed a very grey party to add the second defeat of what goes of the domestic championship. The ones of Xavi did not achieve 'react' completely neither replace after the initial goal of Bilal.
The Barça began his visit to the Almería with a version that, up to now, was quite unknown. Although Xavi Hernández had achieved the formula so that the team worked without mattering the protagonists on the field, in the Power Horse Stadium saw to a team baffled, without ideas, uncomfortable and without hardly intensity. An authentic novelty, conscious of the enchufados arrived the culés in League.
The first 45' of the blaugrana lacked rhythm and him sobraron doubts. The team did not achieve to connect and the Almería, that posed a very intelligent party, took out to relucir the errors that was committing the Barça. They were much more effective with the balloon and intelligent when they lost it. It was not a surprise that achieved to advance prompt in the marker in front of a Catalan picture descolocado, predictable and without 'spark' in the attack in spite of the presence of Lewandowski or Ferran.
Although the Barça achieved to move the balloon of a side to another, looking for the tranquility that did not have, the ones of Rubi were very upper of start, by conviction, faith or win to achieve the first victory in his history in front of the Catalans: After a loss in the area of the Andalusians, by a fault that demanded the culés, Bilal won him the game to Andreas Christensen to control a very good centre that put him Luis Suárez and fusilar, of unappealable way, to Ter Stegen.
The goal of the of Ivory Coast generated an absolute embarrassment in a Barça that did not begin by behind in the marker from before the World-wide and that, by 'luck' saved that the Almería bent the advantage after a corner that found him in the background line of the second stick. It finished of Chilean average and Ter Stegen, putting the foot, avoided that colara in the network. They answered with a head butt of Ely that left very high for 'tranquility' of the Barcelona.
Mejoría 'Insufficient' of the Barça
In the end of the first time the Barça achieved to live more near of the area of Fernando, without hardly can generate danger or clear occasions. Nevertheless, after the resumption and with the entrance of Raphinha, the ones of Xavi were much more incisive , advanced in the field and 'activated' hover of the guardameta murciano, but without the clarity of previous parties and conditioned by the defensive tarpaulin of the venues.
In fact, the Barcelona had to expect until -almost- the hour of party to have his best opportunity in the area of Fernando. Raphinha Had sent a good centre, that tried to finish Frenkie of Jong, but the balloon finish falling in the boots of a Gavi whose shot struck in Ely to divert it to corner. The Dutch, afterwards, commanded a very happened centre that it could not finish Sergi Roberto.
The good news for the Barça, in spite of the 'dense' of the game in all the senses, is that the Almería grieve and could surpass the centre of the field. The ones of Rubi, with advantage in the marker, devoted to defend in own area and try keep to the culés as far as possible of his area although, without wanting to it, had the clearest of the second time to twenty mintunos of the end.
A played to unemployed balloon finish with Luis Suárez in the area of Ter Stegen. It commanded a zapatazo powerful that, if it had not been because it found the body of Marcos Alonso to block it and command it to corner, would have meant the 2-0 because it was 'impossible' for the put German. The ones of Xavi 'answered' with a centre of Ferran Torres quite dangerous that did not achieve to finish Lewandowski neither Raphinha. Afterwards it was Ronald Araújo the one who signed a head butt, but without direction to goal.
