The FC Barcelona premièred the 2020 in LaLiga with bad foot, because it tripped in the RCDE Stadium against the colista. The Espanyol advanced very soon and did not surrender not even when his opponent achieved to trace back, something that, after the expulsion of Frenkie of Jong, cost him to save a tie on the horn in one of his last arreones. In spite of his attainment, that was not the only merit that it is necessary to aim him to the team of house.

If of something can boast Abelardo in his première like technical 'perico' is to have 'broken' to the Barcelona trident, that saw minimised his influence after several days with increasing leadership. Leo Messi and Luis Suárez understand from does years wonderfully, but the recently arrived Antoine Griezmann, in full phase of adaptation, also was leaving backwards his problems and smiling with more frequency.

In the total of the party, the three cracks hardly connected between them in 17 occasions, and any finish in goal. The Uruguayan, the most inspired because it finish with a so much and an assistance, received a definite pass of Jordi Alba with which attained to give back the tables to the marker, and little later was he same the one who served a centre to the second stick so that Arturo Vidal, that is used to to leave fall by this zone, defined with the testa.

The statistics that provides the company of sportive analysis 'OPT' are clear, and underline the isolation to the that saw subjected the forwards barcelonistas. The society Messi-Griezmann was the one who better worked, and remained limited to nine combinations. Of the Argentinian went out five sendings for the French, and east corresponded him with four interventions that finish the spherical to his disposal.

Worse had it a Suárez that it had to look for alternatives, because the ways to the '10' and the '17' were covered. The one of Macon only found him twice, and in the only that did it the one of Rosario, Diego López stopped the zurdazo of the charrúa. The one of Jump yielded the balloon to the Frenchman in three occasions, whereas it could leave it to the captain in two. Too much little for a line determinant in the options of victory of the team.

The Barça needs to be leading with and without balloon

In spite of the numerous touch of attention, the Barça does not achieve to improve, and needs urgently be leading with and without balloon. In a bad that stresses out of house, the Barcelona do not attain afilar his possessions, that turn into a rondo with a lot touch and little verticality in the final metres. Besides, the pressure after loss is poor and disordered, what facilitates that the intensity of the rivals surpass it often.
