Although it is true that hardly does a month since it began officially the season 2019-20, the FC Barcelona has showed two very differentiated faces and has the big to have to to be more regulate in the next parties, especially in which it play out of house. Far of the Camp Nou the ones of Valverde have contested already three parties, and have not achieved to win any of them.

Defeat in the première suspender belt in front of the Athletic in Saint Mamés (1-0), unlucky tie in front of Osasuna in The Sadar (2-2) and again tables in the première of the Champions League, this time in the Signal Iduna Park in front of the Borussia Dortmund (0-0). Three alike results, although it fits to stand out that each party has been a different history.

The Athletic-Barça was equalised, with both teams having of clear opportunities to carry the three points. At the end, a work of art of Aritz Aduriz in the injury time cleared the contention. In front of Osasuna, the FC Barcelona had to trace back but did it with determination in the second time, thanks to the goals of Ansu Fati and Arthur. The team dominated the game in the second act, but an innocent oversight of Gerard Hammered allowed that the navarros empataran to fault of few minutes for the end.

The party of does some days in Dortmund, finally, went the worst that has played up to now the Barça this season. The culés could go out goleados of Germany, and if they did not do it was thanks to the stellar performance of Marc-André ter Stegen. Have to one of the best goalkeepers of the world also explains, of course, but his high degree of interventions is a bad signal for a Barça that pretends to struggle by all the titles this course.

This Saturday, will measure in The Cármenes to a Granada that has won two of the four days of League contested up to now, empatando another of them. The nazaríes arrive with the confidence by the clouds and in positive dynamics after the promotion achieved the past campaign, so they will play against the Barça as if they did not have at all that lose, and with the illusion to mark in front of the current champion.

It will be a vital party so that the FC Barcelona put the batteries and, far of the Camp Nou, begin to dominate the parties as it expects of the team, taking into account the high level of the staff. Arthur and Of Jong aim again to the titularity, and in attack could see for the first time this campaign to the 'MSG' formed by Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Griezmann in the eleven headline.

The Barça has to play as if it was in the Camp Nou

The parties played up to now in the Camp Nou finished in 5-2 in front of Betis and Valencia, with a big collective game by part of the Barça but doing waters in defence, once again. It will be compulsory to improve in this appearance of face to the next days, and The Cármenes can be a good beginning.

In spite of the good rhythm of results of the Granada, if the Barça shows the level expected the Andalusians little will have to do. This yes, will do fault that the ones of Ernesto Valverde go out motivated to the field and, especially, with a big intensity from the minute one. Of the contrary, can give a new fright... And to the 'Txingurri' no longer remains him too credit between the fans culé.
