Calendar of FC Barcelona

From the highest of the table, the combined colchonero lives a League to which still remain him a lot of parties by in front. There are not doubts that all the teams of the championship would love them have the first place of the led by Simeone, but ocuparf the first place has a price that the rojiblancos have to try reduce.

Each rival takes the meeting in front of the Athletic as if it went a final and what lived in Getafe is what expects him to the Suárez, Oblak, Koke and company in the eleven remaining days. The six points of difference that attained in relation with the Real Madrid and the seven more than add with regard to a Barcelona that it will have to play this Monday, leave them in a privileged position.

With a difference of points to protect for a team that suffers in punctual moments, and in spite of that has to players far of his best level and that still has a lot for rowing, leaves clear that the work of the Athletic has surrendered his fruits. Nevertheless, it does not mean that they do not have details that improve, and more if the difference of points has done increasingly short. Some can be the following:

Level the staff

In a moment of the season in which the calendar return more intense with the commitments of LaLiga and of the Champions League, the Athletic has a problem of the staff. With 12 or 13 headlines of confidence for Simeone, in what there is some drop, the colchoneros do not have a good day. The bajón that experiences the team if there are headlines of drop is more than evident.

There are players in the staff that do not show his best football if they do not mark difference Luis Suárez, Carrasco, Lemar, Llorente and company, is very difficult that do it the Vitolo, Lodi, Torreira, Kondogbia, Saúl or Vrsaljko. Unlike the rojiblancos, the Real Madrid, for example, went in Modric, Kroos and Hazard to give the turn to the party against the Elche.

Reinforce the defence

If in the first stretch of the current season seemed almost impossible to mark him a goal to the Athletic, now the rare is to not to do him an occasion of goal. In the played to balloon stopped against, already has gone back rare that the rival do not finish on Oblak and the fault of forcefulness has done that Real Madrid, Athletic or Raise surpass to the guardameta of the Athletic in more than an occasion.

Accumulation of cards

During the party against the Getafe was not Felipe and against the Alavés Joao Félix will not be able to be summoned. The colchoneros have seen a lot of yellow cards in this course and Simeone admitted that it is something that tries to solve. They have seen yellow for protesting, so much in the green as in the terracing, something that happened him to Beautiful after being substituted. Justo now, Luis Suárez, Carrasco and Kondogbia are to a party to be sanctioned by accumulation of cards.

Resist the pressure

"It is necessary to have more calm, have to follow our way and that the anxiety do not appear", is another of fail them of the square colchonera that was recognised by Simeone. And it added: "In the last days can shiver the legs and in a so equalised championship can lose points in any stadium and in front of any rival".
