PROBLEM FOR XAVI?
Koundé and Christensen open a new debate at Barça
FC Barcelona, after having conceded four goals in two games, once again kept a clean sheet against Sevilla with an imperial performance from its two centre-backs, Jules Koundé and Andreas Christensen
After a few years in which the defence was one of the most worrisome subjects in the FC Barcelona, in the past season Xavi Hernández achieved that the reliability of the retaguardia went absolute, until the point that they were the big 'culprits' of many of the victories of the team. Jules Koundé, Ronald Araújo, Andreas Christensen and Alejandro Balde, with Marc-André ter Stegen, went the big protagonists of the past course. Now, the effect has not been so important and there is some debate in the club.
To date, in eight parties of LaLiga, the Barça has fit eight goals. The defence and the own guardameta Teutonic have suffered several problems of concentration that have derived in occasions and goals of the rivals. The blaugrana have not been so 'correct' and have suffered the consequences because, without going further, before the clash against the Seville had fit four goals in two parties, in front of Celtic and Mallorca. They are figures 'improper' of the team, but in front of the Andalusian group there was some truce.
Koundé And Araújo, called to be headlines
They have had some (or a lot of) responsibility the two head offices by which bet Xavi Hernández, Jules Koundé and Andreas Christensen. Both were very hit to the hour to clear the danger and move away to the players of the Seville of the goal. They signed a very complete performance and finished leaving a feeling of absolute security in the low zone of the field that had not had the Barça in the last parties. They complement very well and they generate a new debate in the approach of the trainer egarense.
And it is that, in paper, the couple of central headline will be the one of Jules Koundé and Ronald Araújo. The charrúa reappeared in the traced back in front of the Celtic and was leading, negatively, in the tie in front of the Mallorca. It was foreseen that it went headline in front of the Andalusian group with the French defender, but finally the technical body gave him rest so that it was to 100% for the party against the Port wine by the second day of the phase of groups of the Champions League, this Wednesday from the 21:00 hours.
Christensen will cause the debate
Like this then , Christensen would remain in the bench so that it rest again and would be the charrúa and French those who lead the Catalan defence. Habrpa That see how complement and if they can be the couple 'ideal' of the retaguardia of the Barça. That was the dream of the sportive direction when ficharon to Koundé, from the Seville, in 2022. However, the Danish has won the place, also, and will be an error do without he when it has showed to be so important and vital for the defensive solvency. There will be, without place to doubts, a debate -also- in the saga.
