FC Barcelona lost in his visit to San Mamés in the first match of LaLiga 2019-20. This is the 1x1 of the players in the game against Athletic Club
The FC Barcelona expected to première LaLiga with victory, but tripped to last hour in Saint Mamés and the three points remained them to him the AthleticClub . The Catalans had attained to shake the command of the bilbaínos and accumulate some dangerous occasions, but threw fault to a striker that yes had the ones of house. Hardly some seconds after jumping to the terrain of game, Aritz Aduriz, in the minute 89, sentenced the contention.
The venues did sufficient merits as to win, but also did them the visitors. In the back analysis, the most evident is that the football decide it the goals, and in the only opportunity that had did not fail the one of San Sebastián. The 'lions' roar in his stadium to start with the championship, in which they already can say that they have tumbado to the valid champion.
The Barcelona would not have to throw the hands in command, but yes touches to correct errors and look to forward. The party, of course, was not well, but neither was horrifying and between the disappointments touches to rescue some positive conclusion. This is an assessment of the performance of the 14 footballers that were on the lawn in the Day 1 of LaLiga:
The analysis 1x1 of the Barça against the Athletic Club
- Ernesto Valverde: Punished. The extremeño opted for leaving backwards his fears and propose a brave alignment, offensive and with 'style Barça', but the played did not go out him well because they were missing him strikers. His changes improved to the team and also the talk in the rest, although it could pay by unfit them tactical that atascaron to the centre of the field and the forward.
- Marc-André ter Stegen: Reliable. The German collected LaLiga where left it, turned into an authentic low insurance sticks. Trusted so much in finish them far as point-blank and without complicating with the feet. In the goal of the Athletic could not do at all because it was sold.
- Nélson Semedo: Powerful, but without control. The Portuguese went up in numerous occasions the right band, but hardly could take out centres or passes that connected with his mates. It offered effort and depth, but has the bad luck to go out in the photo of Aduriz. The ariete took him some metres and the luso arrived late to cover his mark, what allowed to the rojiblanco have more space to finalise with a 'tijera' impressive.
- Gerard Hammered: moral Leader. In absence of the captains, the Barcelonan remained with the bracelet and assumed chevrons. It was very concentrated for desactivar the local attacks and tie up to his forwards, so much to one mobile like Iñaki Williams as to one more static like Raúl García. It did not tire to encourage to the troops until the pitido final, but neither could detain the magic of Aduriz.
- Clément Lenglet: Academician. The French kept in his usual line, and formed a solid couple and with few errors with Hammered. It saw him with you win in the offensive actions, and a his head butt forced to Unai Simón to clear to avoid the tie in the last instants.
- Jordi Alba: Disordered. The Catalan was active in attack and arrived even to put some dangerous centre, but in defence ran unnecessary risks. The Basque group use quite his right band, his, and saw that it needs more time to go back to be the one who dazzled the past year.
- Sergi Roberto: Descolocado. The canterano shined in the last party against the Napoli, but this time complicated in the pressure of the Athletic and did not attain to assist to Frenkie of Jong, that did not have companions in the exit of the balloon. It was precipitated in defence and in attack, and although it participated of the mejoría general in the second time, Valverde substituted him by Carles Pérez for the arreón final.
- Frenkie Of Jong: Shut: The Dutch multiplied to give exit to the possession from the place of pivote, but had a lot of problems because the ones of house marked him with three men and during a lot of minutes his mates did not offer him roads of pass. It read very well the played to steal in attack and in defence, and began to show that if the trainer dares, will be very difficult to remove him the titularity this year.
- Carles Aleñá: Descolocado. It deserves the same adjective that Sergi Roberto because his party was very similar. It moved to try assist to the presionado Of Jong, but did not attain to give him the air that needed the recently arrived and the Barça. This caused that the leading remained isolated, and also that it was substituted by Ivan Rakitic to the rest.
- Ousmane Dembélé: Turned off. The spark that usually offers the French this time was not so much, because it was something desacertado and because had few mates with which combine. It tried to dribble, desbordar and filtered a pass in which Rafinha could mark, but was not sufficient to lead an attack to the that was missing him intention, intensity and, especially, mordiente.
- Luis Suárez: Unlucky. The Uruguayan is accustomed to litigate with the defences and leave spaces for his mates, but was the same of surrounded that Of Jong with the difference that it plays some metres more advance. The bad fortune arrived him in hardly some minutes, because while it hurt of an injury left him only in front of the goalkeeper and his finish went to the stick and shortly after had to leave the field with physical problems.
- Antoine Griezmann: Stray. The Frenchman has a lot of work by in front to fit in the forward of the Barça, because it combines phases in which it leaves details of his class with others in which it is entirely missing. In a team cancelled in the centre of the field did not contribute in left band and suffered even more when I touch him exert of nine, because has a very distinct profile to the of Suárez that it does not go to work against opponents that shut .
- Rafinha Alcántara: The best. The Brazilian went out of rebound after the injury of Luis Suárez, but in hardly some seconds offered more confidence that the one who the team had had in the 37 previous minutes. His were the best occasions of the party, with a finish that Unai Simón and the crosshead took out of the square and two shots rasos that struck in the legs of the defences. Since it incorporated , it did not have fear in asking and distribute the balloon, dribble and command as the one who more. The Barça has to think very well if it is the moment of traspasarle.
- Ivan Rakitic: Collaborator. After the arrival of Rafinha, the Croat appeared just after the rest, and helped to recover the tarpaulin in the centre of the field. The Athletic retreated and the runner-up of the world contributed order, pass and arrival, although in a frank balloon in the heart of the area did not attain to finalise.
- Carles Pérez: Late. The canterano went out in the last chamber of hour to treat to contribute something of dynamism to the attack, but complicated in the precipitation of the culés and assisted from inside the field to the golazo of Aduriz. Hardly it had time to show his qualities but moved with many win to treat to help.
