It can not say that the FC Barcelona have begun the season 2019-20 arrasando. Yes it has left two big performances in the Camp Nou (a doublet 5-2 in front of Betis and Valencia), but has not achieved to win in any of the three exits that has faced in League and Champions (defeat in front of Athletic and ties against Osasuna and Dortmund), remaining without marking in two of them.

Psra Understand the reason of the small pothole of results of the FC Barcelona out of house, and also why has received so many goals in this principle of course, it would be necessary to mention several factors: the little shooting of some players, the fault of adaptation of some new signings, the accommodate of some 'holy cows' and, also, the injuries that have produced in the last weeks.

It is not any excuse neither much less, but fits to stand out that the FC Barcelona is suffering the worst plague of injuries in a start of campaign from the 2014-15. Then, to these heights of the season already had had physical problems eight players (Vermaelen, Ter Stegen, Adriano, Alves, Iniesta, Masip, Neymar and Rafinha Alcántara).

This season 2019-20, in the first month of official competitions have lesionado Net, Messi, Dembélé, Umtiti, Junior, Luis Suárez and Jordi Alba. To day of today already have recovered Net, Messi, Luis Suárez and Junior, although they are not still to the one hundred by one hundred of performance when needing more sessions of training to recover the stray rhythm, especially Leo Messi that not even it has been able to do pre-season.

It is clear that the absence of the Argentinian has been the most significant of all, although without him the FC Barcelona has followed marking goals with an irregular fluidity. And it is that between the parties in front of Betis and Valencia marked a total of 10 targets, of the 12 that has annotated the team in the five official parties played up to now. Deceptive data, therefore, to the equal that the one of the goals received.

Because, although it is true that the FC Barcelona attained to keep the goal to zero in Dortmund for the first time this course, precisely the party in the Signal Iduna Park could have offered a goleada against the Barça of have not been by the stellar performance of Marc-André ter Stegen. Further of the degree of influence that can have the injuries in the results of the team, what is clear is that they can not be an excuse.

The staff of the Barça keeps on being very competitive

Between the past winter and the market of signings estival, the FC Barcelona has built a ready staff to struggle by all the titles, in which it did time that did not see so much competition by a place in the eleven initial. The 'overbooking' of the centre of the field has caused that they leave players talentosos like Denis Suárez and Rafinha, whereas in the forward remained without place Malcom and Coutinho.

Sooner or later, therefore, the FC Barcelona will recover the regularity and will go back to dominate the parties in all the competitions, play where play. It is question that the new signings finish to adapt , purchase chemical with his mates and, also, that the team improve his defensive intensity. With this, the injuries that can come will be a hándicap extra, but no a drama. This Barça is the sufficiently deep as not to suffer if lesionan some of his key pieces. Only it does lacking time and work, a lot of work.
