Sergio Busquets was replaced by Arturo Vidal at the beginning of the second part. Valverde showed with this change that the midfielder is no longer untouchable. Badia's is no longer the one without a ball and alternates great performances with more mediocre ones
Sergio Busquets no longer is intocable in this FC Barcelona. If this still had not confirmed , Ernesto Valverde went back it to leave clear against the Inter of Milan. The trainer barcelonista decided to substitute to the midfield player in the minute 53 by Arturo Vidal when it was necessary to trace back a 0-1. To the of Badia was costing him follow the offensive transitions of the Italians and Valverde did not doubt in seating him.
It is not the first time that the mediocentro is substituted or does not play, but yes is the first occasion in which the 'Txingurri' changes him with a result against. The technician follows trusting Busquets, but with this change showed that it no longer has the status of antaño. The international Spanish no longer is indispensable and goes to have to accustom to his new role.
The age does not forgive and to Busquets much less that to the other. The one of Badia does a pair of seasons that has gone down his performance, but in the past was when more noticed that it no longer was the same. In the beginning of this course follows the same and his physicist no longer allows him do the things that did before. With balloon follows having the same quality and can follow marking differences, but without him costs him a lot of more everything.
The Inter made a transition defence-attack very fast during the first 45 minutes and the Barça suffered it indecible to try stop it. Busquets could not mark his rhythm in any moment and saw surpassed in the centre of the field. Neither Arthur neither Of Jong could stop to the interistas, but still with this, both play to another very distinct rhythm to the of Sergio.
Valverde Saw it and therefore it decided to take out to the field to a midfield player of the profile 'box to box' of Arturo Vidal. The technician left a species of double pivote with Of Jong more retarded and Arthur a bit further up, and put to the Chilean in the mediapunta. With this change of system attained presionar more the exit of balloon of the Inter and arrive with more men to the frontal of the area.
Busquets will be important, but no intocable
Busquets goes to be followed being important and will be to title in the majority of parties, but seems that it will not go back to be indisputable. Although only it has 31 years, the true is that his physicist in the field looks to have any more. In parties in which the control of the balloon is of the Barça and there is not excessive pressure of the rival, the mediocentro will follow dominating and marking differences. But in the crashes with pressure, few spaces and a high rhythm, as the one of the Inter of the past night, to the Catalan goes him to cost be important for his team.
