Barça is still an irregular team after the confinement, but there are several of its stars that have not stopped pulling together. These are the four references of the catalans after the break of LaLiga
The FC Barcelona treats to stand up in a bad campaign, in which apura his options to win LaLiga and the Champions League. In the City Condal have been victims of the wear, of the bad planning, of a plague of injuries and of a bunch of scandals, what has caused that the project arrive to a deadlock, aim to final of cycle and keep some chispazos of a too irregular football.
Not even the change of technician has revitalizado to the staff, that resists as it can in the championship of the regularity. The Real Madrid neither is to throw rockets, but in a title that could carry the less bad, the whites have benefited of the referee's decisions, since in all the occasions in which they threw the coin to the air went out them face. This factor, beside the bajón barcelonista, marked the difference.
Although the culés have treated to sustain after the stop of the coronavirus, have not moved away of a shine too racheado, that has not been sufficient in a moment of the course in which all play a lot. The fans has checked with some optimism like Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto or Luis Suárez that litigates to go back to put to tone have recovered feelings after the confinement, but the true is that to the hour of the truth, the Barcelona group sustains in four pillars in which Quique Setién has deposited all his confidence.
The four pillars of the Barça
The of Leo Messi is a special case, since even without being to 100%, the one of Rosario is the indisputable leader of the Barça. Many think that to his 33 years would go him much better with somebody like Neymar at the side, since it would help him to share the baton, but for the time being does not have it and all the offensive game goes through his boots. In the capital accuse him because it only has put a goal in the last seven parties and a total of three in the nine days after the 'break'. The true is that in spite of his evident wear, and to that it has not rested at all, is totally determinant, since of the 17 targets that carry the Catalans, has participated in 12. In spite of his drought, in these seven commitments has given seven definite passes.
Marc-André ter Stegen
The defence was one of the blackheads of the Barça 2019-20, but in the last weeks has improved and Ter Stegen is enjoying it. In the nine clashes after the resumption of the campaign has limited the goals fit to five, two of them from the penalty spot. The merit is shared because, although his mates have put the batteries, follows taking them out the chestnuts of the fire when more lacking does, as in the arreón of the Real Valladolid that remained without prize by the interventions magistrales of the cancerbero of Mönchengladbach. And this by not speaking of his game of feet, a break to the hour to initiate the played and a reliable weapon with which the technicians always can explain.
In spite of that many want to him jubilar ahead of time, Gerard Hammered is the soul of this Barça, futbolística and mediáticamente. On the lawn, has multiplied so that the mentioned Ter Stegen do not happen so many difficulties, and if the defence has improved is, largely, by his fault. Always it is where touches to save the backs of the mates, is decisive taking out the ball played and even incorporates with danger to the attack. Setién Has given him a break in two ratitos because with any couple in the axis of the saga, always is the best. Out of the field, there is few that him tosan, since it is able to raise the spirit of the troops barcelonistas and to put on the warpath to the madridistas. In spite of that they planted him in the sight for reporting the referee's errors, no longer is the only that has signalled to the 'merengues' by a scandalous subject.
Arturo Vidal is the invited surprise of this selection but no thus it is less indispensable. The midfield player has turned into a fixed for a Setién that hardly has left him rest in some isolated party. To his 33 years, is a lung in a room of machines very demanded and no for to run, offering gone out at all times. His effectiveness goleadora is of record in LaLiga, and his deployment him convirte in a very valuable piece. It is able to help in defence and to shine in attack, because it is a todoterreno intense and effective that any one would want to have to his side.
