Junior Firpo improves day by day and against Dortmund took another step in its evolution. The lane is playing more for Alba's injury and is slowly demonstrating his level. Despite that, he must still let go much more in attack
Junior Firpo went back to be title this past Wednesday with the FC Barcelona and chained his third party followed like titling. The Hispanic-dominican is taking advantage of the injury of Jordi Alba to have important minutes and seems that day in day out it goes to more. Against the Borussia Dortmund, completed one of his more serious meetings to defensive level of what goes of campaign.
The ex of the Real Betis did not suffer too much in his band and knew to brake with tarpaulin the tackled of the German team. To 'priori', had luck that Lucien Favre decided not putting to Jadon Sancho in right band as it accustoms usually. The English was acting and when it went in planted more in the another side. Unfortunately for Junior, in the golazo that marked the '7', change of band and broke him before shooting to door.
In spite of this, the carrilero left had to stop to an Achraf Hakimi that played of extreme to try take advantage of his speed and arrival to the area. The played did not go out him well to the Dortmund, since the Moroccan found very disregarded in the first part and hardly arrived with danger in the first occasion of the meeting. Junior had him very tied and played very very placed all the party.
In defence, to general shots, the performance of the ex verdiblanco was of remarkable high. No longer by not suffering hardly in his side, but by the good coverages that did and by some court that completed to avoid serious danger in his area. All this is a big news for the Barça, since it was a test of level and the acting of Jordi Alba showed that no longer they shiver him the legs as in his first meetings like blaugrana.
It has to improve and soltarse more in attack
Where still is far to see to the best Junior Firpo is in attack. The side tried it and went up the band whenever it could, but sees him too stiffened still. With the balloon in the feet, the Hispanic-dominican still plays to not to make a mistake. It does not risk, it does not do at all extraordinary and simply devotes to happen it to the nearest mate not to complicate the life.
In the Betis, the international Sub-21 Spanish showed that it can be decisive in attack. Has a big stride, good speed tip and centres well with his left-handed, but in the Camp Nou still have not seen at all of this. The potential has it and the qualities also, but has to soltarse, risk and play as it was used to to do in Benito Villamarín.
His defensive improvement already is something to stand out and is something that celebrate, but to Junior still can him ask much more. The best is that day in day out it improves and that against an important rival like the Borussia was more than remarkable. It seems only question of time that this improvement in defence also arrive of midfield upwards.
