FC Barcelona once again showed weaknesses in defense and conceded three goals in Sunday's match against Granada. These scores, in addition to resulting in a bittersweet draw for Barça, meant a tough return for Marc-André ter Stegen
In the previous to the duel against the Granada, one of the big news that gave to know was the return of the usual guardian of the arch culé, Marc-André ter Stegen, to the eleven initial. The guardameta German there was absent state because of lumbar problems that required a surgical intervention, what kept it out of action during a long period, losing a bunch of meetings where was suplido dignamente by the Alicante Iñaki Crag.
However, the return of the '1' to the terrains of game did not result so successful as it expected , since it finished receiving three annotations, two of which could not do a lot to avoid. The first was a powerful 'latigazo' of Ricard Sánchez in the area, and the second was a finish of Facundo Pellistri, the one who found entirely only in the second stick with the goal desguarnecida. Nevertheless, in the third target, a head butt of Ignasi Miquel, the German could have done a bit more, what evidenció his fault of rhythm futbolístico. Besides, perhaps the most striking, his fault of precision when going out playing from the bottom, propiciando more than an occasion of danger for the Granada.
The negative data that stars Ter Stegen in this season
These three goals approached to Ter Stegen to a curious negative record that shows clearly the weakness of the Barcelona cast to keep his goal to zero. With these three targets, the native of Mönchengladbach arrived to a total of 16 so many received in 14 commitments, what gives an inusitado average of 1,14 goals by party.

This without mentioning the quantity of annotations fit in these first 14 days of the 22/23, that grieve were five.
The mejoría of the background line culé has to be collective
This does not seem to be only blames of a Ter Stegen less effective, but it also can be due to a defensive line much feebler that, fits to stand out, already has surpassed the quantity of targets received does some days. In the present campaign, already have fit 33 so many, whereas in the 2022/2023 solo received 20, which evidence the problems of a FC Barcelona that does not attain to give solidity to his defensive line. It will be necessary to see if with the turn of the German and that this have a bit more than shooting, finishes offering a bit more than firmness to a bottom that needs of the clear mejoría of all the pieces.
