FC Barcelona was not up to the task in Lisbon and added its second consecutive win in this Champions League. Ronald Koeman is being the target of all the criticism, but no player was close to his best level and many, in fact, were very far away.
Ronald Koeman is one of the main managers of the disaster of the FC Barcelona, since it is not finding solutions to do improve to the team. However, the footballers also have an important part of fault and the disaster of Lisbon also has to him attribute to them. Any was to the height, but ones more than others finish signalled by his exert and the feelings that left. These are the footballers that remain more 'touched' after the 3-0 of the Benfica.
Although the quality of the German is indisputable, from does already a time is far of his best version. Alternating incredible stops with childish errors or actions in which it could do more, as the one of this Wednesday in Portugal in the 1-0. The shot of Darwin Núñez went in by his stick and although it went strong, clearly could do something more to avoid the so much. Besides, almost it gives a goal to the own charrúa with a without sense exit in which it finish dribbled and leaving the free goal. The team needs that it recover his best version.
The defender was surely the main distinguished, since it went to the bench in the minute 33 by Gavi. Koeman Substituted him by fear to that it saw a second yellow that the referee forgave him when it still was in the field. In the half hour that played was slow, desubicado and suffered enough in front of the forwards of the Benfica. The years weigh and to the '3' every time notice him more in parties of this level.
The one of Martorell does not have level to play in the Barça. At least to day of today, is far of what has to him demand to a central in the FC Barcelona. It remained portrayed once again this season in the 1-0 of Darwin, leaving him too space and being dribbled with ease. Besides, hardly it won individual duels in all the crash, suffered a lot of during all the duel and finish expelled in the last minutes after holding in one against to a rival. A night to forget of the ex of the City.
Although it did not go his worst party, the captain went back to leave clear that no longer is to be the only mediocentro of the Barcelona in important parties of Champions. The physicist of the of Badia does not give him to hold the rhythm that impose his rivals and in front of the Benfica went back to suffer in the transitions. It needs to be arropado to surrender and when it is not it remains exposed and finish turning into a problem to the hour to defend his back.
The one of Reus went back to be disappeared in attack playing like carrilero. It does not give him depth to the team, no desborda absolutely at all with balloon and does not contribute what would have to contribute being practically extreme. Koeman empeña In having he to play in the right in his 3-5-2, but the Catalan neither gave the level against the Portuguese and went back to remain distinguished.
Although it can be unfair, since the Dutch was not neither much less of the worst, yes fits to say that in front of the Benfica remained even more clear that is not to be the offensive leader of the Barcelona. By role and by name would have to be it without Ansu Fati neither Ousmane Dembélé, but is not giving the performance that would have to him demand. Against the Portuguese as soon as it loomed the rival goal, sinned of individualista in several played and did not know to choose well in many others. It will be a good complement, but for the moment is not working like star.
Luuk Of Jong
The ex of the Seville does not have level to play in the Barça and does not go it to have never. In Lisbon strolled by the field until being substituted and did not generate at all with the balloon in the feet. Almost it did not participate in the offensive game of his team and, besides, failed the two that had. In one of which erró, not even there was goalkeeper and, although it took it out to him a defence, seemed that his shot even could go was directly. His paper would not have to happen to be a solution of emergency for the second parts.
