Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has paid expensive his errors and sees the leadership increasingly far. In an ideal stage to give a hit on the table and reduce distances, the ones of Xavi Hernández desconectaron when more they needed shine. The Girona planted a party 'cheat' to the Barcelona and finish collecting the fruits of a clash in the minimised to the rival and cost of his consistency and regularity to do with the leadership of LaLiga in solitary, above the Real Madrid.

It was not a derbi Catalan any one. It has turned into one of the most thrilling, contested and demanding of the last years, especially by what was at stake. It was the confirmation of a Girona that has left to be disclosure to be one of the best 'realities' of the Spanish football, in front of a Barça that continues looking for his way and, especially, the direction to the regularity and the game -positive- collective. Xavi Hernández already has 'married' with his alignment title and indisputable, but still has a lot of automatisms and points for improving to be candidate to everything.

And it is that, in the visit of the gerundenses, to the culés saw him , from the beginning, with impetus and win to look for the party. Combining and dominating from the possession of the balloon, with a medullary that was imposing ... But the team finished suffering when it lost in inner zones. The pressure, constant and high, worked of wonders and forced to the rival team to do big efforts, but also inivitó to the culés to have several errors forced that finish with occasions (and goals) for the ones of Míchel.

Rhythm very high and distribution of goals in Montjuïc

The Barcelona were avoiding that the Girona could create played from the collective. The answer? Tsygankov Left in career by his right band, without that anybody could contest him the balloon. It put in the kitchen with quite a lot of ease to put a pass raso to the heart of the area, where appeared Dovbky without opposition to finish, adjusted to the stick, so that the spherical touched in the wood and colara in the deepest of the network, with little or at all to do.

The good news is that the Barça did not hide and, by the contrary, looked for of incessant way the tie. Raphinha Tried to finish a centre of Cancel, but Gazzaniga answered in the moment indicated to avoid his so much, although at all it could do in the following played: The Brazilian executed a shot of corner to find, by high, to Robert Lewandowski in the second stick. It commanded a powerful head butt after winning him the mark to his defender. The 2-1 could arrive with occasions followed of the Joaos and of the own '11', without success.

The 'punishment' of Miguel Gutiérrez to the Barça

But the Girona is the team feeling by something. And it is that, with the tie in the electronic, went back to push with strength of face to the rival. If there is something that characterised to the ones of Míchel was that, every time that they planted in the area of Crag, did it with too many players. And Miguel Gutiérrez, that was especially lit by his left band, did not forgive after two attempts: First it tested with a finish powerful that the guardameta Alicante brushed to command it was and afterwards was Savinho the one who enabled him, only in the area, but his finish crusader left out of miracle.

To the third was the defeated. And with a lot of merit. The ex of the Real Madrid, that with spaces to run is an authentic 'bullet', went in career with destination to the Barcelona area. To pleasure, without opposition and dress of 'crack', commanded a zurdazo with the leading, direct to the square, so that the guardameta local did not have at all that do. It was his revancha personal and a statement of interests in a first time with a lot of rhythm and that it could carry it any one of the two teams.

No rest neither grantings in the second half

If the rhythm in the first part was high, in the resumption did not give time to despistarse. The two teams had a lot of hunger and intention to impose . The Barça went out to look for the tie, but the hit was not being the point for of the culés (and in all the season...). Raphinha, Gündogan or Araújo, of head, went the best occasions for a Barcelona group that, although it was not very fine, wanted to propose.

The ones of Míchel seeded the fear constantly in the area culé, but without so much clarity as in the first-half. Savinho And Miguel were not appearing with ease and diminished the offensive power, in front of a Barça that grew in feelings with the happen of the minutes. In feelings, because the clear occasions arrived to dropper: Gündogan almost nails the balloon in the deepest of the network, after a centre of Ferran, but erró in the control. It rectified and it shot with the interior, but remained in an attempt. It went back to appear with a finish toneless that taponó Gazzaniga with ease.

The Barça pays expensive his passivity

The changes of Xavi resfrescaron to his Barça, but did not offer too many solutions. It was not the most solvent version of a team that did not find comfort to go out with pause, determination and intention and that felt that it had to depend on the 'chispazos' or individual actions. Contrary case to previous presentations in which the attacks were consequence of a game with sense. The Girona, that few times surrenders and that knows how cost of the errors of the rival, finished punishing to turn off the lights in Montjuïc.

And it is that the punishment arrived, almost, of way deserved. The group gerundense expected, held and took advantage of. As it does it a 'big'. And enough it has to learn the Barça. Stuani Left the balloon, remaining divided. Koundé pateó To the air and Valery, like the smartest of the class, appeared to remain only in front of Iñaki Crag with a finish raso and adjusted to the stick... To give the leadership to the ones of Míchel and leave, even more, 'touched' to the Barcelona.
