Barça hosts Real Madrid this Sunday, at the Camp Nou, in a game that is key to start fighting for LaLiga. The culés will have to show his best face
A Classical between the FC Barcelona and Real Madrid always paralyses to all the planet. The two 'enemies' of the Spanish football cross this Sunday 24 October in the Camp Nou, from the 16:15 hours, in the corresponding party to the tenth day of LaLiga Santander 2021-2022. The picture directed by Ronald Koeman arrives with two consecutive victories, in front of Valencia and Dynamo of Kiev, but without being able to fiarse in front of a Madrid that it is impredecible and that already knows what is 'golear' in the feudo barcelonista.
It does a year, the then directed by Zinedine Zidane won 1-3 to the Barça in a marked clash by the controversy, but in which the Barcelona were very desconectados in the final minutes. In the second turn, the Madrid went back to win home (2-1) and left 'portrayed' to a Barça plagado of doubts and without answers. This Sunday, will be an ideal occasion to sign the 'revancha' and, at the same time, give a hit of authority to the eternal rival because the winner of the party will have an important advantage on his rival in the classification.
That precisely is one of the keys of the Classical, remembering that in these moments, the Real Madrid great 17 points in the table, whereas the Barça 15. To win the White House, would be taking out five points of advantage on the culés, an overwhelming and very dangerous difference. In case that the three points remain in the Camp Nou, the Barcelona would put +1 on the madridistas. A tie, without place to doubts, does not serve him to anybody. Of there that the two teams have smart his blackboard to achieve the form to win to his rival. We review all the keys that brings the Barça-Madrid of the tenth day of LaLiga:
Two teams that do not finish to find
Of general way and with lights and shadows, so much Barça like the Madrid have signed an irregular start in this season, leaving a lot of doubts on his performances. Focusing us in LaLiga only, the ones of Carlo Ancelotti have presented a more positive image, with five victories, two ties and a defeat. They are candidates to the title, there is not doubt, but also have 'crashed' in what performances respecta, remembering the victory 'in extremis' in front of Valencia, in which the individualities saved to the team, or the tie in front of the Villarreal, when the madridistas remained evidenciados, without clear ideas and with doubts in front of the 'yellow submarine', in addition to the fateful defeat in front of the Espanyol. In the positive side, it is necessary to stand out the convincentes victories in front of the Mallorca, Alavés or Celtic of Vigo.
The Barça is not to throw rockets, but buoys . The ones of Koeman have sinned of a lot of irregularity and to remain , almost always, without ideas. They are mounted in a Russian mountain that does not finish and are more the shadows that lights those that has showed the team. The parties in front of the Athletic, Granada, Cádiz or Athletic are 'to forget', because the reality is that the Barcelona have left negative feelings and little space for the illusion. However, they come to win him to Valencia and there is energias renewed, by what anything can happen.
What there is in the blackboard, Koeman?
There are a lot of doubts regarding the approach of Ronald Koeman for the party, but everything seems to indicate to that the technician will bet by the 4-3-3, with which the team does not shine necessarily, but does not suffer too much. Nevertheless, remembering what happened in front of the Dynamo the Wednesday, there are a lot of appearances in which the Dutch needs to work, regarding the 'tasks' of the players. For example, it can not accept that the players that more passes give are the defenders (against the Ukrainians were Lenglet, Hammered or Alba), reason by which it is necessary 'review' what sucede in the centre of the field.
In the medullary, the connection go in Of Jong and Busquets every time is more non-existent. In front of the Dynamo, did not connect, in fact, and 'Busi' did not combine with the tips, but yes with the central, then, if the 'capi' had signed a Nations League spectacular, why Koeman is condemning it to play between head offices? it is giving it back To a place to the that would not have to be. One of the priorities of this Barça is to achieve that this connection Busquets-Of Jong exist and work, because they are the two better midfield players that there is in the staff.
The speed, the contragolpes against the defensive fragility
A key point for both teams is the defensive fragility, something in what they are suffering too much, more the Barça of Koeman. The Barcelona have sinned to remain without answers in front of the rival pressure and, besides, few times can anticipate in front of the situations of danger near of the area of Ter Stegen. It is something that could work in front of a very poor Dynamo or in front of a Valency that does not raise head but, will be sufficient to brake to Benzema, Vinicius or Fede Valverde?
It is a factor that conditions to the Barcelona and by which already have suffered too much. The three above-mentioned 'specialise' for finding spaces where do not exist and, in the case of the two sudamericanos, by his impossible careers in the field to approach to the rival area. Already the Barça suffered it with Valverde the Classical past, the one who went of all the rivals from his field, yielded to Lucas Vázquez so that Benzema finished marking. It is necessary to keep the lines, know replegarse and close the spaces, because to the against or with cracks, the Madrid can kill you.
In any case, the Barça can take advantage of of the same with the Madrid, that also is suffering too much to defend. The feeblest side of the ones of 'Carletto' is the right band, where would be Lucas Vázquez or Dani Carvajal, two players that are not to 100%. In the axis, with a couple that is 'accustoming' (Militao and Praises), the Barcelona forwards have to look for the spaces that always leave and look for beat to Thibaut Courtois that always, literally, is attentive to answer.
It is necessary to fine-tune the puntería!
In relation to the previous point, in the Barça have to be conscious that the guardameta Belgian of the Real Madrid is, perhaps, in his best moment and that has showed to be a wall under the three sticks. However, no the for all (remembering to the Sheriff and Espanyol), by what will be key that players like Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati, Sergiño Dest, those who probably will be headed by the offensive, try one hundred times if possible. Also it is necessary that add footballers like Frenkie of Jong or Busquets.
Memphis Is living a moment irregular with the Barça and, after a start of season sensacional, has lost bellows, further of his so much against the Valency from the point penalti. It is true that it is a very incisive player and that looks for to improve the attack, but seems to remain without ideas in the last metres. And it is a terrible news for a Barcelona picture that needs an offensive leader.
The influence of the drops
For the party against the madridistas, Koeman only has recovered to Jordi Alba, the one who had felt annoyances against the Dynamo. They have remained in the infirmary Pedri and Araújo, in addition to Dembélé. The midfield player is a 'fixed' for the Barcelona and the charrúa is a central that offers more guarantees that, for example, Eric García, in addition to being a big striker. Already it showed it in the Classical of Valdebebas the past month of April and also against the Granada, this season, when it saved to his of a defeat 'in extremis'. They are key players and has noticed his absence.
In the side of the Real Madrid, Ancelotti has recovered to Hazard and Carvajal for the party, but before had been Mendy the big novelty. The French returned against the Shakhtar 'as if at all', after five months in the dry dam. Nevertheless, the Italian trainer has to 'take care' because his two signings for the Classical are not to 100% and will have to dosificarlos, by what would go out with what already has tested in the last weeks.
