One of the main worries of the Barcelona during the past season was the high age of his players, that ocasionaba that after 60 minutes of party noticed the tiredness. Big part of the ties and defeats of the Barça gave after the first hour, when in the field fatigaban and, given to the little depth of staff, there was not sufficient options to freshen to the team.

Ronald Koeman continues his revolution in the Barcelona. First it reached the exit of players that did not form part of his approach, afterwards achieved fichar to youngsters to improve to the team and now is rejuvenating to a Barça to the that before criticised him for having in his staff a big quantity of footballers that exceeded the 30 years.

The Barcelona that finished the past season with a defeat of 2-8 in front of the Bayern Munich in the semifinals of the Champions League does not have at all that see with the team that have seen in front of Villarreal, Celtic of Vigo and Seville.

The eleven that jumped to the field of the Stadium Gives Luz had an average of age of 29,54 years. Gerard Hammered, Lionel Messi, Arturo Vidal and Luis Suárez were the greater, with 33 years.

The difference between the average of age of the alignment of the Barça of does a month and half, in Lisbon, and in which it has trusted Ronald Koeman in the beginning of campaign is abysmal. In the party in front of the Seville, the blaugranas finished with five footballers that do not surpass the 23 years: Pedri (17), Sergiño Dest (19), Ronald Araújo (21), Trincao (20) and Of Jong, with 23.

Of the painful party of Lisbon, only have repeated titularity Hammered, Alba, Messi, Sergi Roberto, Lenglet and Of Jong. Fault that debut the guardameta German Marc-André Ter Stegen, the one who is recovering of an operation.
