Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona follows without being able to win to the Ray Vallecano from the arrival of Xavi Hernández to the Barcelona bench. The Saturday, the culés went back to puncture in Vallecas (1-1), a tie that can expand the brecha with the leader just Girona before another very complicated duel in Montjuïc in front of the Athletic of Madrid. The Barça completed another first part for the forget in spite of the variants in the alignment and recently could save a point with a late reaction in the complement. Like this we saw to to the Catalan group in Madrid:

Iñaki Crag: Cumplidor

It was demanded at all more begin the meeting and avoided greater evils with an intervention in two times that evidenció his nervousness. With the happen of the minutes recompuso and had a good unemployed just before the golazo of Unai López, a shot adjusted to the stick where had little for doing. In the start of the second part almost wraps it with an error in exit, but did not have greater sobresaltos from here from now on.

Joao Cancel: Desconectado

The luso completed another grey party, without the depth that characterised him in his first month like culé. To I Cancel seem to weigh him the wear with the club and his selection and is very likely that go out of the eleven for the duel of the Tuesday in front of the Port wine. The rest would have to seat him well to recover the stray spark.

Andreas Christensen: Orderly

The Danish showed that, when it is to the 100 %, is a guarantee deep down culé. Without Araújo neither Koundé in the saga, Christensen saw very safe like first head office, attentive in the mark and fast in the coverage of spaces. Xavi reserved a change foreseeing some difficulty in defence in the final stretch that never produced .

Iñigo Martínez: Intense

The Basque also fulfilled in his return to the eleven, very attentive to recover balloons and give a hand in the mark when the distractions of Frenkie of Jong generated problems. It fixed and it corrected well when it demanded him . It was intense and conclusive in the hand manually with 'Isi' Palazón.

Alejandro Balde: 'Asistidor'

The side completed a good party, dressing of 'asistidor' in the minute 82 with a centre from the left that finished in the goal against of Lejeune. Of have not hit the balloon in the swearword of the defender Frenchman, is very likely that Lewandowski had followed suit. In the first part did not have so much arrival because of the fault of ideas in the centre of the Barcelona field.

Oriol Romeu: Sacrificed

To the Catalan saw him safer with Frenkie of Jong to his side, recovering several balloons in a first dense part of the Barcelona group. In the beginning of the second part, was admonished by an agarrón to Jorge of Fruits and Xavi did not doubt in removing him to give entry to Ílkay Gündogan and have more depth in attack.

Frenkie Of Jong: Imprecise

The Dutch returned of his injury with a quite toneless party. It lost several balloons in the centre of the field that allowed to the Ray create danger in the area culé. It improved after the entry of Gündogan in the second part, but did not complete a good party. In the discount, was admonished by a planchazo on Iván Balliu.

Pedri: Creative

The mediocentro goes recovering his best version and, while it was in field, went the most creative of the Barça, handling the times and administering the balloon to give balance to the team. Although it finished admonished the first part by a pisotón on Unai López, the Canarian ingresó much more enchufado in the complement, being manager of the notorious mejoría and Barcelona command in all the second part.

Ferran Torres: Unimportant

To the 'Shark' opened him again the doors to the eleven, but wasted an opportunity of gold to step firm to the titularity taking advantage of the bad moment of Joao Félix. His clearer occasion arrived in the beginning of the second part, finishing free of mark with a direct head butt to the half, to the hands of Dimitrievski. After this, Xavi put to Félix in his place.

Lamine Yamal: Wasted

It was the best of the Barça in another first very toneless part of the culés. The juvenile maddened to Espino with his desbordes by left, but was missing him more clarity to find to Lewandowski with some pass to the half. Xavi decided to put to Raphinha in his place to fifteen for the end, a change that gave to the Barcelona group more intensity in the final stretch.

Robert Lewandowski: Nublado

The Pole was disappeared in all the first part, to a large extent by the fault of Barcelona depth. In the complement participated more, going in and going out of the area with assiduity to try free spaces to the carrileros. In the played of the tie, forced the goal against of Lejeune with his entry to the area girl in search of the finish.

Joao Félix: Missing

The luso replaced to Ferran in the 55' and cost him go in at stake. Lewandowski Tried to retreat some metres to open him spaces to the luso, but the one of Viseo was quite turn# off. On the end, saw the yellow. The Joao of the last weeks begins to remember his version 'colchonera'.

Ílkay Gündogan: Jugón

The German rested after the stop of selections, but Xavi did not have more remedy that give him entry in the 55' to look for the reaction culé. Gündogan ingresó By Oriol Romeu and did with the control of the game culé, associating very well with Pedri and Lamine, first, and afterwards with Raphinha and Fermín.

Raphinha: Revulsivo

The Brazilian replaced to Lamine Yamal to a chamber of hour for the end and ingresó enchufadísimo. In the first played in which it participated, tested with a finish rasante very similar to the of the goal of Unai López, but the crossbar denied him the goal. On the end forced an infringement of Espino in the area that the VAR and Munuera Montero overlooked.

Fermín López: Testimonial

It replaced to Pedri in the 75'. It was very active from his entry, giving a hand in the recovery and offering constantly like an alternative in attack in his position of interior/mediapunta.
