EIGHTH GOAL AGAINST IN THE LEAGUE
Ter Stegen conceded a goal again after three games unbeaten
FC Barcelona, before their defeat this Sunday against Almería (1-0), had not conceded a goal in LaLiga since their visit to Benito Villamarín (1-2), just under three weeks ago
If there is something that has benefited to the FC Barcelona in this edition of LaLiga Santander, has been the defensive reliability that has showed the team, that has finished converting the arch of Marc-André ter Stegen in an authentic 'fortín' very difficult to penetrate for the rivals. Before the surprising defeat of this Sunday, against the Almería (1-0), the Barcelona only had fit seven goals in 22 parties.
The figure has elevated to eight after the goal of Bilal in the Power Horse Stadium. It had won him the game to Andreas Christensen and controlled, perfectly, a good centre that put him Luis Suárez to command a very powerful shot to the network of Ter Stegen, that little or at all could do to avoid that colase. It is the first goal that fit the Barcelona in LaLiga from the past 1 February, when they visited Benito Villamarín to confront to the Real Betis.
In this occasion, Jules Koundé annotated a goal in own door to the 85 minutes for recortar distances in the marker after the targets of Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski. The goal of Bilal arrives little less than three weeks of the last time that fit the Barcelona group in the domestic championship, something that speaks very well of how are managing the defensive section in the Barça.
The case is that, although they have fit very few goals (8), the one of Bilal has supposed the defeat of the blaugrana, the second in what it goes of League. It has been a quite strong hit for the culés, that wanted to recover the good feelings after the 'KO' in the Europe League, the past Thursday, and also increase the distance with the Real Madrid to ten points. They have remained on the way and with the alarms lit.
Ter Stegen Calls to the calm
After the party in the Power Horse Stadium, Marc-André ter Stegen spoke in the cameras of 'Barça TV' and recognised that "we could have done something more in the first part. This is more than a warning. We would have to have done our work" and that "in the second part can not say at all of the attitude, but in the first has been all more difficult. Afterwards they have defended very well his area and have not been able to arrive with danger".
Although they have suffered, the guardameta of Mönchengladbach has recognised that it is necessary to keep the tranquility: "it Is a defeat that always hurts, never arrives in a good moment, but go to reassure us, to recargar the batteries and to look to forward. We remain us with the feeling to having been able to do something more. It is moment to do self-criticism and look in what can improve. If the tie of the Madrid relaxed us? The tie of the Madrid did not relax us to us, is the other way around, in reality".
