Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández faces his first crisis at the head of the FC Barcelona at least expected . The team has registered a bajón remarkable after the last stop of selections and this Monday added his second consecutive defeat home in front of the Cádiz (0-1), in a day of Monday totally atypical in Camp Nou. The 'stick' of the elimination of the Europe League in front of the Eintracht left sequelas very important of which the 'Xavineta' still does not attain to replace.

The technician egarense went out with a XI 'mixed' in front of the yellow group, because of the absences of Pedri and Gerard Hammered by injury and Ronald Araújo by accumulation of cards. It was as well as Clément Lenglet was to title beside Eric García in a saga in which it reappeared Sergiño Dest in the right side. In the medullary, Xavi opted by Gavi in the place of Pedri and, in attack, surprised the presence of Memphis Depay like leading centre in place of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

However, the Barça completed a first very discreet part in which only Ousmane Dembélé generated danger in the arch defended by Jeremías Ledesma, big figure of the party. The Argentinian completed a total of six cut across, the majority of them in the second part. The míster of Terrassa bet in the final stretch of the party by all his offensive arsenal, giving entry to Aubameyang, Adama Traoré and Luuk of Jong, but the team followed without ideas and finished throwing centres looking for a new 'miracle' with Luuk.

Of this way, the 0-1 in front of the Cádiz represents the fourth toneless party of the 'Xavineta' inrow , since the culés neither had showed a good image in the gone in front of the Eintracht in Germany (1-1) neither in the triumph 'in extremis' in front of the Raise (2-3). Neither speak of the defeat of the Thursday in front of the Germans, in where the final result was deceptive (defeat 2-3) with two so many achieved in the discount. To the Barça has been missing him depth to create danger in the rival area and, with the drop of Pedri, the shortage of ideas seems to stress.

The calendar does not help too much

The worst for the Barça is that the calendar does not give break. The blaugranas have to happen the page immediately and prepare from the Tuesday the visit to Anoeta the Thursday in front of a Real Sociedad that always complicates to the culés in his house. To complete a week at full speed, the ones of Xavi have to receive to the Ray the Sunday in a party postponed of the day 21. With the team playing his place in the next Champions League, a seguidilla of tropiezos can be lethal to fault of alone six days for the end of LaLiga.

For the moment, the culés are second with 60 points, the same that the Seville and the Athletic, but with a party less. The Betis is fifth with 57 and the Real Sociedad sixth with 56 units closing the fight by the 'zone Champions'. If the 'Xavineta' pretends to avoid the total shipwreck, is imperative to recover the good game that showed the team between January and March, when it chained 15 parties invicto. The future of the club is in the seven parties that subtract him to the culés.
