FC Barcelona lost Gerard Piqué because of a ban in the 23th match of LaLiga, but this could not really worry the catalans. The team already knows how to win without one of its best defenses
The FC Barcelona was deleted does some days in the Glass of Rey, and has fixed the sight in LaLiga and the Champions League. The disappointments in the tournament of the 'KO' and the Supercopa of Spain have been painful, but touches to centre in reaching the two greater aims of the season. In some weeks returns the European battle, so for the moment it touches to centre in the conflict by the domestic leadership.
For the appointment with the Real Betis, the Catalans lost to Gerard Hammered, sanctioned by accumulation of cautions. Further of a touch of attention to personal level for the defender, this is a collective warning to a defence that is suffering a lot in this course, something that reflects in that one of his referents already has fulfilled cycle in three occasions -two in LaLiga and one in Champions, with a total of 13 cards-.
But every time that the captain has remained was, the team has stepped forward, and has achieved to reach four victories in his absence. The first of them arrived, precisely in his first punishment in the championship of the regularity, that coincided with a visit the Eibar in Ipurua. Samuel Umtiti substituted him in a retaguardia in which it formed couple with Clément Lenglet, and the culés saldaron the duel with a solid 0-3.
The pair of French has been the elected every time that the canterano was not available, and also gave the size in the international competition. When the cards prevented him play in the Camp Nou against the Borussia Dortmund, the Barcelona did not fail (3-1), and neither it hiceron Giuseppe Meazza against the Inter of Milan (1-2). In this last case, with the leadership of the group resolved, Ernesto Valverde gave him rest.
Neither there was discontent in the Glass of Rey, although in this case it went by little because the fault of adaptation and the relaxation approached a fright that carried by in front to many. Against the Ibiza, the preparador extremeño went back to do without Hammered to give him a break, although his defensive experiments were not promising. In spite of everything, Antoine Griezmann saved the ballot and a 1-2 sufficed to happen of round.
The Barça has to improve his defensive concentration
In addition to an offensive effectiveness that it could fix with a signing, the Barça has to improve his defensive concentration if it wants to opt to the titles that remain him at stake, because when the things put serious in LaLiga and the Champions, will not be able to allow the distractions that already have cost him some that another party. Although this does reference to Hammered, also extends to the rest of his mates, since it is a task in which it has to apply the community and in which there have been too many disconnections in the last months.
