The FC Barcelona could not preserve his invicto in LaLiga the Saturday and fell of unfair form in front of the Real Madrid in the first Classical of the season (1-2). Further of the drops, the party left several portrayed, mainly in a second part where the team accused the physical wear and where the changes made by Xavi Hernández, instead of contributing solutions, finished by desordenar to a Barça chaotic in the last 20 minutes.

In this sense, the egarense has been the first signalled by the defeat. The initial approach of the technician culé gave results, giving chevrons to Gavi like only pivote and to Fermín López like companion of Ílkay Gündogan in the creation. Neither it had gone out badly the experiment to put to Joao Cancel like right extreme so that Ronald Araújo occupied again the side, since the 'charrúa' dried to Vinicius Jr. And Iñigo Martínez did a good work like second head office.

Nevertheless, the exit of Fermín by Oriol Romeu shattered all the well that the team did in the first-half and, beside the insistence to risk with Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski in the last half hour in spite of the invalid shooting of both during the week evidenciaron the bad reading of the of Terrassa to try close the party. By the contrary, Carlo Ancelotti himself found solutions in the bench and finished amending his badly pose initial with an aggressive reaction in the final stretch, led by Jude Bellingham.

Ferran, Raphinha and Lewandowski did not save of the criticisms

Regarding the headlines, Ferran Torres was the one who received more critical. The 'Shark' desaprovechó the opportunity to shine in the most important party of the season up to now and participated very little in attack during the 60 minutes that played. No in vain, the one of Foiós was the first change for the entry of a Lewandowski the one who also was signalled by his decision to anticipate his return knowingly of not being to tope physically.

Certainly, the professionalism of the Pole and of Raphinha is admirable regarding the effort made to shorten his lapses of recovery, but both accused the fault of shooting and contributed very little in attack in the final minutes where the Barça more needed of disequilibrium in contrary field. "It is a defeat that hurts and did not deserve to lose", said Robert when finalising the duel. Reason does not be missing him, but the self-criticism missed .

Romeu And Balde neither had a good afternoon

Of the XI initial, another that did not have a good afternoon was Alejandro Balde. To the side cost him be deep by left and lost several duels with Dani Carvajal. In the complement, did not have responsibility in any of the goals of Bellingham, but contributed very little to try give safe exit to the culés when the Madrid planted in contrary field. Much less lucky was the work of Oriol Romeu.

The mediocentro replaced to Fermín in the 72' and never could accommodate to help to Gavi in the recovery. In fact, it ran unnecessary risks in the exit with the balloon and saw quite slow to brake to a Luka Modric that did an enormous difference from his entry. With the imminent turn of Frenkie of Jong, is almost sure that the Catalan will have to resignarse to be acting,, since Gavi has been the best of the centre of the Barcelona field in the middle of so many drops.
