FC Barcelona is still not carbureted away from Camp Nou and began 2020 in a line similar to that of the whole season: lowering the level at home and with a stumble against the colista
The FC Barcelona received in the derbi against the RCD Espanyol the enésimo touch of attention of the season. Especially by the ineffectiveness of the group of Ernesto Valverde out of house, in which the team transforms to offer party yes and party also an unsure version in defence, with few ideas in attack and alarmantemente lacking of intensity in all and each one of the situations of the duels.
It is true that the Barça is giving a good level of game and of results when it plays in the Camp Nou but out of house, the culés already accumulate three defeats (against Athletic Club in Saint Mamés, Granada in The Cármenes and Raise in the Ciutat of València) and three ties (against Osasuna in The Sadar, Real Sociedad in Anoeta and Espanyol in the RCDE Stadium).
In total, have obtained only 15 points of the 30 that there has been at stake until the moment in the championship suspender belt, what supposes that they have lost the half. The balance are four victories, three ties and three defeats, with 15 goals in favour and 13 against. But the worst of everything are not the results, but the feelings that leaves the team.
Some feelings that still could have left more defeats in some parties that saved but that they could have finish easily with the Barcelona pigeonhole of points marking zero. In mind are split like the ones of the Signal Iduna Park against the Borussia Dortmund (0-0), the one of the Slavia Prague (1-2) or the one of the Athletic of Madrid (0-1), in which the rival was upper in spite of the result.
Defeat inexplicable against the Raise
The Barça of Valverde suffers an important bleeding when it plays out of house and the worst of everything is that, in the second turn, the Barcelona still have to visit stadiums very complicated. Valencia, Betis, Real Madrid, Mallorca, Seville, Celtic, Villarreal, Valladolid and Alavés are the rivals to which the culés will have to visit to the end of season.
Without place to doubts, are speaking of a calendar much more last that the one of the Real Madrid, the main rival by the title that will have the Barcelona. Osasuna, Raise, Betis, Real Sociedad, Espanyol, Athletic, Granada and Leganés will be the rivals of the group of Zinedine Zidane, that already has removed of on the complicated visits to Barça, Athletic, Seville and Valencia.
