Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has closed the 2022 with a performance, in front of the RCD Espanyol, little convincente and very move# away to the feelings that had left the team in the last parties before the stop of selections. And it is that, although they advanced very soon and they dominated with solvency, the ones of Xavi Hernández did not achieve to close the clash to time and paid the consequences with the tie.

To this, besides, it is necessary to add him a referee's performance for the forget of Mateu Lahoz, that was not hit at all and that left a 'show' in which he was the big leading. However, it does not remove that the Barça was without tarpaulin neither fineness in the last pass, although it kept the possession of the spherical along the meeting. It was missing forcefulness.

Precisely to this has done reference Xavi Hernández in the back press conference to the party, in which it has done self-criticism and assumed the responsibility, like team, of the tie. It explained that "we have gone down the rhythm, the tie is ours fault, are errors especially of effectiveness. You have to sentence. The Espanyol signed to arrive with 1-0 to the last 10 minutes. When you are not effective can happen these things. Today we lose two points".

"It has to be calm, with the pulsaciones low... And Mateu Lahoz is like this, but today no. It has him descontrolado the party"

Although it blames to his, yes has recognised that to Mateu Lahoz has gone him the party of the hands: "it Is a referee that dominates and controls the parties and today has gone him and have said it to him. It has delivered without sense cards. It has to be calm, with the pulsaciones low... And he is like this but today no. It has him descontrolado the party", confessing the talk in the bench. "It has said me that it gladdens to see me, without more. Therefore I say you, that is a referee that seems that has the control and today has not been like this. But I do not blame to Mateu of at all, the tie is ours fault".

The errors of the Barça

On what has been missing to the Barça, Xavi resumió that "have gone down the rhythm, the intensity... My feeling is that we would have to have won and well. The Espanyol has had the penalti and an occasion of Nico Melamed. We have had very clear. This film have seen it many times. We have spoken to the rest that it was necessary to give rhythm and intensity to the party".

Of the fault of intensity, deepened in that "the Espanyol plays very direct... They are situations of the sport. Today we have done half brilliant hour and afterwards have not been so well, but when you are not so well is necessary to keep put it to zero. And the played miserable of the penalti".

Protagonists of the party

The trainer of Terrassa also spoke in room of press on the anger generalised after the tie: "Angered are all today. A tie home after dominating the party... We have kicked 22-23 times and the Espanyol, 4. It is unfair, but the football has these things, playing better that the contrary, do not win. Today they escape two points".

"It is unfair, but the football has these things, playing better that the contrary, do not win. Today they escape two points"

Finally, also it pronounced on the performance of an Ansu Fati that was not hit: "it Has played because it has trained very well. It has done a change tremendo regarding intensity, defensive work, has helped a lot to the side, slope in the second balloons... It has been missing him the same that the team, the effectiveness. It will be more hit in the following meeting. I see him a growth for him and to help to the team".
