With the win against Real Betis, the first 'sample' of what FC Barcelona can be this season has been left. The reinforcements of Joao Félix and Joao Cancelo have fitted in wonderfully and are a 'plus' for Xavi Hernández in his approach

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has returned to the 'tasks' in LaLiga, after the stop of selections, with an absolute exhibition in front of the Real Betis in the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Compannys. A 'manita', goal to zero and a splendid performance of the picture trained by Xavi Hernández has been the proof that this team goes seriously and that has benefited enormously of his reinforcements in this last market of signings estival.

It was very very known the impact that have had players like Ílkay Gündogan and Oriol Romeu, but the surprise has been total with the party that left Joao Félix and Joao Cancel in his first titularity with the blaugrana. They had debuted in front of the Osasuna, in The Sadar, with positive feelings... But this Saturday have given the first proof of all what can contribute in this season in which they will be yielded in the City Condal.

The Joaos, leading in this Barça

The two Joaos were the big bet of the sportive direction, and also of the Board of Joan Laporta, in the straight final of the market. They were a lot of the efforts that had to do to convince to the Manchester City and to the Athletic of Madrid so that they left him go out in a loan and in conditions 'desfavorables' for them... And the bet begins to justify very soon.

Probably, the attacker of 23 years was the one who more generated doubts because it came of difficult times in the Athletic of Madrid, especially. The 'Cholo' Simeone did not have he and had remained 'sentenced'. In Chelsea neither had had a lot of luck, but this summer has had the opportunity to fulfil his dream to dress of Barcelona. It has left clear that the part 'emotional' also plays a key paper. It exhibited in front of the Betis: it opened the marker to the 25 minutes, 'participated' in the goal of Robert Lewandowski and had his doublet, but was cancelled by offside in the beginning of the played.

I cancel, special for the Barça

It left a very complete performance that left marvelled to all Montjuïc. It was a 'class' of personality, talent and win to claim . It is called to mark the difference, to the equal that a Joao Cancel that it has stepped strong and already has adueñado of the right band of the Barça. It left a flawless performance splitting like a side, but assuming a role that knows to perfection, as false midfield player. When the team had the balloon, acted like an interior more.

Of there they were born many played important for the Barça and achieved to add a goal to complete the 'manita' to fault of little less than ten minutes for the end of the encuentror. It went in career, recortó to Juan Miranda and sent a finish crossed to première like goleador. Everything seems to indicate to that it will be indisputable in the eleven of Xavi Hernández and that, especially, will mark the difference.
