Barça was touched and almost sunk in the Champions duel against Inter Milan, but Ernesto Valverde gave Arturo Vidal entrance and the game changed
"Arturo gives you a lot of, goes in, infects, recovers, arrives, plays and is very important for the changing room", said Leo Messi after the victory against the Inter of Milan. "The entrance of Arturo was determinant, contributed us his harp", corroborated Nélson Semedo. "It is a player something disordered, but is very difficult to dismay it", ensured Ernesto Valverde, that had trusted he to trace back the party.
The FC Barcelona was a vulnerable team, fragile and without ideas in the first 45 minutes of the party of the phase of groups of the Champions League against the Inter. The men of Antonio Conte kept ordered in defence and went out like arrows to the contragolpe. The party went to the rest with 0-1, but easily had been able to fall a pair of goals more, seeing the ease with which the 'neroazzurros' arrived to the goal of Ter Stegen.
The Barça did not work and the team needed a change. It was then when Ernesto Valverde took letters in the subject with a change that generated scepticism: it withdrew to Sergio Busquets and gave gone in to Arturo Vidal in the minute 53. The Chilean planted by behind the 'trident' offensive and Arthur Melo and Frenkie of Jong retarded his position to facilitate the exit of ball.
And it is here when it was necessary to give him the reason to a Valverde that in this moment gave in the nail. The entrance of Arturo Vidal to the terrain of game changed the party completely. The Barça presionó further up, won consistency in the centre of the field and won to a footballer that was key in the mediapunta. In fact, the Chilean assisted with a centre measured to Luis Suárez in the voleón of the 1-1.
Until the moment, the trio formed by Sergio Busquets, Arthur and Of Jong in the medullary has been the one who more has convinced so much to Valverde as to the barcelonismo in general. But the Barça enamoró playing in front of a rival of entity with this 4-2-1-3 with a double pivote of association and Arturo Vidal descolgado, arriving from second line and launching the pressure up.
It can have Arturo Vidal more leadership?
With Arturo Vidal on the field can that we assisted to the best version of the Barça this season, without desmerecer the partidazos against the Betis and Valencia. The Inter came to win it all and showed that it is a very powerful team, but the Barcelona did a big second time. And it is evident that this big football does not understand without the entrance of the Chilean, that literally changed the party. Maybe it have won an opportunity like titling?
