Eric García needed confidence and regularity to show that it can be an important player in the FC Barcelona. The central was one of the most argued players in the beginning of season and was more mentioned by his failures and expulsions that by his interventions or played important. With the happen of the time, has become a player that, although it does not appear between the most stood out, contributes a lot from the defensive saga and that is comporting like one of the leaders in the field.

In the derbi went back to be important and leaves clear that the confidence that has given him the team has been more than justified. Eric, that arrived rested after remaining out of the announcement of Spain by physical problems, went one of the pillars of the Barça in front of the Espanyol... And it go that had work in the second part. It was key in the exit of the balloon and has improved, a lot of, his statistics.

'Sportive world' collects that Eric García was the player that more good passes gave, with 86 and only five bad, surpassing to Jordi Alba (83 good) or Frenkie of Jong (71). Besides, it gave two long passes good, achieved two recoveries and anticipated in two opportunities. Against the Espanyol, only committed two faults in defence, but also was the second player that more times took part, with 96 touch, by detras of Jordi Alba (114), that went with the one who more combined.

Eric was, precisely, a bastion in the defence and a resource of luxury to brake to Raúl of Tomás imparable. The ex of the Manchester City had to abandon his position in a few occasions to contribute more to the team. Equally, as all the team and especially the defence, has a lot that improve because the Barça suffers too much in front of the rival pressure, something that did not be in the second part against the Espanyol.

A lot of way for visiting and also for improving

In spite of the improvement of Eric García, of the green shoots of the team in the first part and of the pressure advanced after loss of the Barça in several moments in the party, the reality is that there is too much for improving and the culés do not have to remain only with the result. Xavi Hernández aimed after the crash that "already will play and will attack better" and does not be missing him reason, because with what showed the Barcelona picture in the derbi, is not sufficient.

And it is that it has repeated the same libreto 'of always' of the Barça to be effective in the first time or before the rival presione and attack a bit more. When this raisin, is more than evident the bajón of the Barcelona and leave the feeling that it does not give them for more. The pressure anímica and physical are other points to resolve of a Barça that remains 'half' at the end, without mattering the rival.
