BARÇA HAS CONCARDED 8 GOALS
The data confirms it: Barça reunites with its 'ghosts' in defense
Defensive reliability had been key for FC Barcelona to be last LaLiga champion. In this one, there have been more mistakes for Xavi Hernández's men, who are forced to 'change' their plan
The FC Barcelona rescued a point in his visit to Palma de Mallorca, but has symptoms that it is necessary to retouch the team before they advance -more- the problems. After the return of the stop of selections, with the victories followed in front of Real Betis and Royal Amberes by 5-0, there was the feeling that the team, with his evident improvements, had found his best version, but if there is something that always is necessary to remember is that it can not sing victory so prompt.
In seven days contested to date, the picture barcelonista has fit eight goals. In the past season, in the same instances, had conceded only one, in front of the Real Sociedad. In that then, were of sweet to offensive level, but also was showing an impressive solidity for 'sustain' to the team. In fact, the Barça took 23 days in fitting this quantity of goals (8), an overwhelming difference, because in addition to the fit in Sound Moix, has showed a much more fragile version.
The history changed for the Barça
After two big exhibitions, the ones of Xavi Hernández have left parties very poor. In front of the Celtic, the spirit and the strength from the terracings of Montjuïc topped the traced back (unthinkable), but in front of the Mallorca was not sufficient. In any case, further to leave points on the way, for the Barça has to be a called of attention to defensive level: they are fitting a lot of goals and, more worrisome still, the rivals are planting easily in the area of Ter Stegen to generate occasions.
In front of the Galician picture had called the attention the 'slow' that retreated the Barça and the suffering in each contragolpe. The Celtic won the back to the defenders in a lot of occasions and left the feeling that, if they had been more hit in the last pass, would have done much more damage to the culés. In front of the Mallorca, have confirmed the prognoses and, in addition to that it is not fine the defensive system, the players are sinning by faults of concentration and committing errors that, does a year, seemed impossible.
Worry by the goals in Sound Moix
The proof of this has been how the picture of Javier Aguirre annotated his two targets. The first was born of an error of understanding between Marc-André ter Stegen and Oriol Romeu, in front of the pressure of the venues. The guardameta opted by a vertical pass to the midfield player, but was not attentive to hunt it quickly. Sánchez stole the balloon, centred and in front of the refuse of Ronald Araújo went back to insist, with the fortune that Muriqi finished at first to nail the balloon to the deepest of the network.
The second of the Mallorca left even more portrayed to the Barça, in a played of three touch. Rajkovic Sent a balloon from goal so that Muriqi combed winning him the duel (again) to Romeu. Abdón Prats was the sufficiently list for colarse between the two Barcelona head offices and surpass to Ter Stegen in the exit. Improper actions of a picture culé that could have lost after the occasion of Larín in the discount, when it remained only in the small area.
