Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona lived a party for the forget in his visit to the Power Horse Stadium. It finish with a defeat by the minimum (1-0), but with the feelings by the floor because the team was not able to impose neither give loose rein to his game in front of a very intelligent Almería that took advantage of of the eases that were leaving the Barcelona to carry the triumph, thanks to a goal of Bilal in which Ter Stegen little or at all could do.

The Barcelona picture showed his more apathetic version, without shine and without intensity. From beginning to end, although in the second part tried to change the course of the party to base of centres to the area in research of striker. It is a defeat that, if it does not manage well, can happen bills. Because they already are two tropiezos followed, in League and Europe League, and next Thursday the culés visit to the Real Madrid by the gone of the semifinals of the Glass of Rey.

The case is that the fault of intensity has been the big enemy of the Barça in his visit to Almería. Like this it has recognised it Eric García that finish being one of the players more 'signalled' in the defeat, but that gave the face to review the performance of his: "In the first part have not had neither rhythm neither intensity. In the second have looked for the goal, but they have accumulated a lot of footballers in his area and has been impossible".

"We accumulate two very hard defeats, but it is necessary to follow, because the Thursday have a very important party"

In the Barça regret that they had not taken advantage of the opportunity to remain to +10 points of the Real Madrid, after the tie of the madridistas against the Athletic: "They were very closed inside. They left us centre, but had a lot of people and was difficult to take out at all. It is a putada, because the Madrid punctured and had the opportunity to expand the advantage. We accumulate two very hard defeats, but it is necessary to follow, because the Thursday have a very important party".

It insisted in that the fault of intensity was determinant for the Barcelona, because they were not thinking in the Classical of the Thursday: "it does not have us distaído the classical. Only that we have not gone out with the necessary intensity. There is not more. We knew that they went to close backwards and that to the against have players very fast, but the problem has been more something ours".

Eric, signalled in Almería

It added his second titularity been still in LaLiga, after the party against the Cádiz, and Eric García left a very insufficient image in his battle to win a place in the XI of Xavi Hernández. It suffered more than the account in front of the attackers of the Almería and lost an important quantity of duels. It showed his more fragile version to defensive level and, in the goal of the Almería, remained very signalled by his unfit in the mark that gave continuity to the played.
