The visit to Sound Moix has not left very very stopped to the defence of the FC Barcelona, that has been very fragile and has remained signalled in the goals of the ones of Javier Aguirre. The bet, with the rotations, has not resulted him to Xavi Hernández that it will have to seat to define how can give rest to all his players without that 'affect' to the performance of the team, as it has happened in front of the Mallorca.

They had a lot of expectations with the debut of Iñigo Martínez. Before visiting to the picture bermellón, had contested 15 minutes only and the rotations presented like his opportunity of gold for 'present' in the Barça. It has been very conditioned by the surgical intervention to which subjected in the summer, to treat his fascitis plant, and has not been until September that has reappeared. It has had very little time.

Martínez, without shine in front of the Mallorca

It is one 'excuse' to justify his decent "performance", as it defined it Xavi Hernández, in front of the bermellones. The ex of the Athletic added his first titularity with the Barça sharing the axis of the defence with Ronald Araújo, the one who to his time signed his first presence in the XI Barcelona since lesionó around the middle of August. Only it had been able to contest 90' in front of the Getafe, more the 45' in front of the RC Celtic in the past day.

The Basque and charrúa split like the couple of central title to give rest to Jules Koundé and Andreas Christensen, those who up to now had played it practically everything. The bet did not result him to Xavi and Iñigo, especially, remained quite discussed because they noticed him the imprecisions, some nervousness and with the feeling that it was badly positioned. Araújo Had to help him in a lot of situations, but has not been sufficient.

Xavi defends to Iñigo Martínez

Xavi Hernández knows very well that it is important that all the players are 'enchufados' and are able to go in in rotation and leave good feelings. The trainer has not remained 100% satisfied with the performance of the central of 32 years, but yes has recognised that had a party hit in spite of all the difficulties that crossed: "it Is well Iñigo. It has done a very correct party. It has been very well in the passes. Always it tries it", it signalled in room of press.
