Calendar of FC Barcelona

For the first time this season, the FC Barcelona repeated alignment. Xavi Hernández bet against the Girona by the same men that won in the previous day to the Athletic of Madrid. The technician had not been able to trust, largely by the injuries, in the same alignment until the split number 21 of the course, adding League and Champions League. His bet involves to go back to have three head offices in the defence, relegando to Alejandro Balde to the bench by third consecutive occasion.

However, the Barça lost against the Girona by 2-4 in his house, in Montjuïc, and did not seem to have almost any signal of that solid split that the culés played in front of the team colchonero does only a week. The team of Xavi went back to fit goals with great ease and although Iñaki Crag again went back to be of the best players of the XI, the Catalan defence seems totally lost this season.

Xavi fracasó again in correcting the defensive problems

Ronald Araújo saw by a lot of stray moments, adding to a Koundé that clearly has less concentration when it finds like side. Christensen arrived to the party almost without previous sessions by the birth of his son and Joao Cancel like left side many times seemed that it played a distinct party. The Girona did not have too many problems to surpass the line of four defenders that put Xavi, and much less when Balde appeared like left-handed head office of way improvised in the minute 65.

With these four so many of the ones of Montilivi, the Barça already has fit in the championship the triple of goals that the previous season: 18 targets. Besides, as in the case of the derbi against the Girona, fitting the first goal against very soon: in front of the Granada and Alavés, in the minute 1 of game, or in front of the Mallorca in the 8' and now in the 12' of the meeting. In the 22/23 the team culé had fit so much only 6 targets, 3 of them in the defeat by 3-1 in the classical in front of the Real Madrid.

Neither Ter Stegen neither his mates have been to the same level

Besides, Marc-André Ter Stegen accumulated twelve goals to zero, being fundamental in this League that finally finished remaining the Barça and in which after 16 days that had yielded two ties and a defeat. In the present course Ter Stegen, drop by his problems in the back, only has attained five goals without fitting in his thirteen apparitions, whereas Iñaki Crag, in his three apparitions, did not receive goals only in the triumph by 1-0 against the Athletic of Madrid.
