Ronald Koeman continues looking for a forward that can decide parties and that works, but at the moment only Leo Messi and perhaps Ansu Fati seem certainties. The rest of the players have been rotating and the Dutchman continues without hitting the key

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona is not giving the level in this beginning of season and sum two defeats and two ties in the six parties that has contested of League. Although in Champions League the feelings are being better, with three victories in three meetings, one of them against the Juventus of Turín, in the domestic championship is not playing well and has failed already too much.

The culés are having problems to defend the transitions of the rivals and concede too many opportunities of goal along the meetings. Although in this sense has improved regarding the stage of Ernesto Valverde and to the one of Quique Setién, still there is margin of improvement and has to grow more. Nevertheless, the main problem of the Barça this campaign is in the forward, where Ronald Koeman does not give with the key.

To the Barcelona is being missing them puntería and his attackers is very fallones for now. The technician already has demanded more tarpaulin, but only depends on his footballers, that have to fine-tune more his look, since the opportunities are arriving with frequency. But even further of this, the trainer barcelonista follows without giving with the key regarding his line of attack, that is not working the very that would owe.

Up to now, only Leo Messi and perhaps Ansu Fati​ have been indisputable up, something that does not speak very well of the forwards and of a Koeman that has to find prompt solutions. The '10' has played it all and although only it has marked of penalti, before or afterwards will begin him to go in because it is having them and is arriving. The Hispanic-guinean, by his part, has been headline in 7 of the 9 crashes contested and is the maximum goleador of the team with 5 so many.

Leaving to the Argentinian and to the Spanish to a side, the two remaining pieces in the offensive gear blaugrana are two incógnitas. Not even Antoine Griezmann, that would have to have a place ensured by path and quality, has settled still. The French was acting in the Classical and although it has been headline in all the other meetings, gives the feeling that it could fall of the eleven anytime.

Doubts in the mediapunta and in the extremes

On the other hand, until his injury was being Philippe Coutinho the one who split in the mediapunta, but after his 'KO' there are more doubts. Pedri Is being the favourite of the míster of Zaandam lately and has contested 4 of the last six commitments of start. Nevertheless, the Canarian is far to be indisputable and not even has had a fixed position, since it has played indistinctly in the mediapunta or by band.

In the extremes, Francisco Trincao has a role assumed in the rotation, and seems that it goes to be the agitador of the right band culé. Ousmane Dembélé, instead, has been headline in 3 of the last six crashes, and gives the feeling that Koeman still does not have very clear which paper give him in his team. In general, it gives the impression that the Dutch does not know still which is his forward, something that is repercutiendo negatively in the performance of his team.
