The FC Barcelona has to leave backwards the bad feelings of the parties in front of the Bayern, Granada and Cádiz, which went a vase of cold water for all the Barcelona fans because they confirmed that the team had more lacks that virtues. In front of the Raise, the Barça showed a face and attitude very different that, although it is not a certainty that they have found his best version, yes invites to keep the confidence in the group directed by Ronald Koeman. It will be a process engorroso to go back to be 100% competitive, but it will be necessary 'row' together.

In front of the Valencian picture was Memphis Depay the one who opened the marker, with a goal of penal. The Dutch was the one who caused the maximum penalty, after a demolish of Radoja. After the fault, took the balloon and left a clear message: he went to earn the penal and like this was. There was not discussion neither his mates approached to argue the decision, by what boasts that it has adopted the role of cobrador of penal, that until the past season had been only of Leo Messi.

It is a role importantísimo that no any one can assume, because the pressure is too much. In the past season, for example, saw like players like Frenkie of Jong, Ousmane Dembélé or Antoine Griezmann failed his launchings and existed the doubt of the one who went to be the 'leader' in this appearance. Memphis Had big possibilities because before it had a big percentage of tarpaulin, considering his statistics in his previous teams and the selection of Low Countries. It is of 76%, having converted 23 of the 30 that has launched in his career, explaining the one of this Sunday in the Camp Nou.

Another of the players with big tarpaulin to the moment to define from the eleven metres is Sergio the 'Kun' Agüero, with a percentage of 77% to his favour, but with many more penal executed. The forward has transformed 48 of the 62 that has launched. The Argentinian, when it was recovered of his injury tendinosa in the internal twin of the right leg, figure like others of the options for the launchings.

Coutinho Would be the big surprise

If there is a player in the staff of the FC Barcelona that has the 'full' of tarpaulin in what to penal refers , is Philippe Coutinho, withor n tarpaulin of 100%. In total, has annotated ten of ten. The carioca is holding rhythm after a complicated injury in the meniscus that kept him moved away of the terrains of game by eight months, appearing also like one of the 'cracks' that it can contest the role of cobrador of penal.
