Barça closed the first round of LaLiga 2019-20 on Saturday, and did it with a disappointing draw against Espanyol. The catalans have received a serious warning, because they are the winter champion with fewer points of the decade
The FC Barcelona premièred the 2020 of form agridulce, since it conserves the leadership of LaLiga but could not win in the first party of the year. The Catalans atascaron in the usually intense derbi in front of the RCD Espanyol, that neutralised his traced back and will force them to share, at least during the next weeks, the first place of the classification with the Real Madrid -same points but better difference of goals culé-.
In case they still needed some warning more, the Barcelona confirmed like champions of winter, although they did it with the lower quantity of points of the decade (40). They are varied the stars that have heaved the voice to ask a step forward of all the staff, Ernesto Valverde insists in that it is necessary to improve, but the reaction does not arrive and for the time being everything are doubts in the always demanding fight by the titles.
The booty was not so scarce from the campaign 2007-08, that dissolved the project that was in hands of Frank Rijkaard. The Dutch closed his stage in the Camp Nou, references like Ronaldinho or Deco did the cases and there was revolution in the changing room, what gave step to the consolidation of the best generation of footballers of the history of the club. The successor of the technician, Pep Guardiola, also was legend barcelonista.
With the one of Santpedor in the bench improved notably the registers at the end of the first turn, and arrived to the equator with an important margin. In his three first seasons reached 50, 49 and 52 points, and in the last, of long the worst, remained in 44. The balance was not at all bad taking into account the circumstances, although the problem was that the Real Madrid was in 49 and the final victory was his.
Tito Vilanova was the one who situated the highest slat, when it arrived to 55 points in the course 2012-13. In this championship reached the hundred and beat a record, and even afterwards, with Gerardo Martino that it remained in white, to the half of the competition arrived with 50 -the same that the Athletic of better worse Madrid 'average'-. Luis Enrique neither remained short in this challenge, and began with two partial leaderships with 44 and 45 points. Before his goodbye won him the Real Madrid to the half and at the end, with 43 points in winter by the 41 certificates in the Camp Nou.
The importance to be champion of winter
To date, to Valverde no had him bad die LaLiga, but the problem is that his tendency is to go toless . It began with 51, afterwards it sealed 43 and now it has remained in 40, in a vara to measure more important of what seems. In last 11 campaigns, the Barça was champion of winter in eight occasions, and in seven of them finish celebrating the title. Only the Athletic, in the 2013-14, deprived him of the glory.
