FC Barcelona was defeated in its visit to Valencia in the twenty-first match of LaLiga 2019-20. This is the 1x1 of the players in the game in Mestalla
Quique Setién no longer can boast to have to his FC Barcelona invicto, because it gave a thump in the visit to Mestalla. The intentions of the Cantabrian were good and like this could see in his first parties, but the doubts that left the experiments in the Glass of Rey went back to rondar in LaLiga, in which the first opponent of maximum level ate to the Barcelona in spite of the chispazos of his two big referents.
The shipwreck was evident to collective level, and hardly can save to Ter Stegen and Leo Messi in an afternoon to forget. The German stopped, stopped and stopped in a first-half that could finish with goleada of Valencia, but after the rest was sold in the two so many of Maxi Gómez. The Argentinian led a reaction that was so insistent as flat, but his numerous attempts remained without the prize of the goal.
Still it is prompt to do assessments, but the first analysis does not bless the change of trainer because the mejoría is scarce, so much at stake as in results. Obviously, it will be necessary to expect so that it notice the hand of the new technical body, but the fight by the titles tightens and does not expect to anybody. This is an assessment of the performance of the 14 footballers that were on the lawn in the Day 21 of LaLiga:
The analysis 1x1 of the Barça against Valencia
- Quique Setién: Abandoned. Although from the first day, the one of Santander tried to recover the joy in the game and the style that does to the Barça more recognizable, has taken little in giving of bruces with the reality. The performance of his pupilos still does not accompany him and in addition to the worrisome defensive crisis, the drop of Luis Suárez has left to the orphan team of references in attack. It will have to demand and work more because it does not suffice with a bunch of good intentions.
- Marc-André ter Stegen: Extraordinary. The German has reasons to be mosqueado because a week more saved to his and a week more left him sold. It stopped a penalti and appeared whenever they needed him, but a rebound of the balloon in Jordi Alba prevented his reaction in the first target of Maxi Gómez and the Uruguayan went back to define to pleasure and too alone in the against that gave step to the second.
- Sergi Roberto: Stray. To the of Reus demands him the new system that approach more to the central and park his rises by the band, and is not finding the place to help in defensive tasks. In the penalti of Gerard Hammered arrived late and also in the second goal of Maxi, and in any of the two occasions understood with an Ansu Fati that neither appeared to do him the coverage.
- Gerard Hammered: Overwhelmed. The Barcelonan was protagonist in a maximum penalty in which arrolló with clarity to José Luis Gayà. It lost the place Sergio Busquets, Sergi Roberto and Ansu arrived late and the central happened of braked. A clear fallido his forced to take part to the bustled Ter Stegen, and this time could not look for to the captain so that it pushed to the culés to the traced back.
- Samuel Umtiti: Desbordado. The French started the duel with good feelings, but went of more to less and went in him the nerves when the blanquinegros pusiero by in front. Setién Seems to be giving a touch of attention to Clément Lenglet that went down his level, but it will be necessary to judge if the efforts of Samu are sufficient so that it keep like titling. Still it sees him too irregular.
- Jordi Alba: Unlucky. The one of L'Hospitalet went out in the photo of the first goal of Maxi, because the shot of the charrúa struck him before lodging in the network. The new technician has left him all the band and the bet is not resulting of the all satisfactory. Up it throws in fault a partner with which connect, and down look for him constantly the back in some contras that the Barça no lográ desactivar.
- Frenkie Of Jong: Desaprovechado. The Dutch was one of the feelings of the Barcelona because it covered a lot field with tarpaulin, but now wants to do so many things that can not stand out in any. Every time it costs him more break lines in a too flat group, and the disorder happens him bill when it has to add his efforts to the retaguardia.
- Sergio Busquets: Worn. The one of Badia still is a player aprovechable if the order accompanies to the culés, because his responsibility and vision of the tactical allows him inflarse to steal balloons. The problem is that if the opponent insists, has always the ones to lose, because in the physical plane no longer is for a lot of trots and the parties every time do him longer. Also it has lost reliability in the pass.
- Arthur: Turned off. The Brazilian had to be key piece in a meeting in which it touched to command with the possession, but did not show his usual security and neither contributed consistency to the room of machines. Setién Looks for footballers that assume chevrons and the one of Goiania could be one of them, but if it does not begin to look to forward and be vertical, will have difficult to lead to a too lacking square of depth.
- Ansu Fati: Atascado. Setién Insists in planting to the of Guinea Bissau in the right band, and although the youngster contributes some fogonazos, is clear that is not the best place so that it can shine. Opened to his own foot is very little effective, because it can not break with diagonals to look to goal and his centres neither are worthwhile, since without a nine in the area there is not anybody to finish.
- Leo Messi: Insufficient. The Argentinian is throwing in fault to a partner determinant like Luis Suárez, and although it tried it, this time escaped him the prize of the goal. His were the only clear occasions for the Barça, but neither his zurdazos neither the free shots were the answer. The defensive wall valencianista did not leave spaces and anybody found ways so that it filtered assistances.
- Antoine Griezmann: Unobserved. The of the Frenchman is converting already in a dangerous tendency, because it runs, asks it and offers but does not attain to have influence in the game. With Ernesto Valverde no found him place and Quique Setién goes by the same way, and is a pity have to a leading champion of the world centred only in the pressure and in the repliegues defensive.
- Arturo Vidal: Fallón. The Chilean did not go in Mestalla the revulsivo that the Barça needed, because it showed a too imprecise version and marked by obviedades. After substituting to Arthur in the minute 56, escaped him numerous passes and was too evident that pretended to connect with Messi, what facilitated to Valencia the task to contain his usual efusividad.
- Ivan Rakitic: Testimonial. The Croat substituted to Frenkie of Jong in the minute 85, but his already lost by 2-0 and hardly had time of infuir in the game or the result.
- Arturo Vidal: Debutante. The canterano also could carry the adjective of Rakitic, because it went in in the same minute and with the same limitations. His case is slightly distinct, because after the change by Ansu Fati, debuts in this campaign with the first team.
