Calendar of FC Barcelona

Saint Mamés presented like a 'hell' of the that the FC Barcelona was forced to go out alive. The Athletic came of golear to the Athletic of Madrid in the Glass of Rey and with a flawless series in his house, because only it had lost a party in the season, against the Real Madrid (0-2). The Barcelona had the challenge to impose , because had a lot at stake... And it was missing them 'blood' to go to look for a key party in the fight by LaLiga.

And it is that there was too at stake. The Barça arrived with the opportunity to surpass to the Girona in the classification after his defeat in Sound Moix (1-0), but only has recortado a point (59 vs 58). Besides, they travelled to Saint Mamés knowing that the Real Madrid had left two points in Mestalla in a hard and controversial party against Valencia and that it could reduce the distance considerably to fault of 11 days for the end. They have remained to seven points and with more doubts that certainties.

The Barça left to happen an important train in LaLiga

In addition to the all the context with the classification, the Barcelona were finding his best version -confirmed in the goleada against the Getafe-, but to the hour of the truth, with everything at stake, have signed his more toneless party in quite a lot of weeks. The fault of ambition and 'blood' to go out to look for the party were the two constant ingredients during the ninety parties. It did not go by tiredness, fatigue neither wear, because had a week to prepare (by the three of the Athletic).

In Saint Mamés saw several versions of the same team. During the first five or ten minutes seemed convinced that they could carry the victory. Joao Cancel was very active dressing almost of extreme and propiciando combinations that 'shut' to the bilbaínos in his field, but the team was diluting with the happen of the minutes. The ones of Ernesto Valverde achieved to connect, keep the balloon and feel comfortable, leaving to the culés without answers.

The Barça, without ambition neither faith in Saint Mamés

They delivered the leadership and the occasions, but in the second half was a team without 'soul' that seemed not knowing what (or how much) was playing . It is true that influence the injuries of Frenkie of Jong and Pedri González, two key pieces for the team... But in the second half there was not anybody that threw the team to the shoulders and offered a 'light' to attack. It is not surprise that closed the second period without finish to the arch, neither that the Athletic brushed more times the goal. The Barça did not gather the arguments to plant against the bilbaínos neither deserved more than what carries home. With parties like this can not litigate by LaLiga.
