There is very little that recriminarle to Lionel Messi after the big performance that has had in his last parties, but also after the abysmal exert of the FC Barcelona when his captain was not in the field, in the tie of the culés in front of the Eibar. The Barça still depends largely of the star rosarino, the one who after all the controversies of the last months, continues recovering his best version in the terrain of game.

Although his beginning of campaign was extremely irregular, so much of face to the arch as in the creation of game, Leo Messi follows giving steps of 'giant' to show his best skills in the field. The Argentinian every time is more participatory and big manager of the offensive deployment of his team. In front of the Valladolid and Huesca saw proof of this, but 'The Flea' still has to improve his definition and exert in the final metres.

In the party in front of the 'oscenses', the only so much of the night was born of the boots of the Argentinian star and Frenkie of Jong only had to finish. Besides that, during big part of the clash, saw to Lionel Messi very involved from the right band. The only -big- detail was that the goal went back him to deny, although it completed eight finish in ninety minutes. It is true that Álvaro Fernández had a spectacular night in The Alcoraz and avoided that the result was more been bulky, but is difficult to understand how Messi failed so many opportunities.

Only two of the eight finish of Messi were to goal, more another that was refused by Álvaro. The rest, five, did not approach to the arch. To the Argentinian, although it tries it, is missing him puntería to define in the last metres and the FC Barcelona needs it urgently. In a party in which the Barcelona command was almost absolute, is alarming that the team did not achieve to close the marker and left with life to a Huesca that needed, to all coasts, add.

Of course that the only responsible to mark can not be Leo Messi, but in his position of leader and with his good performance in the last dates, results worrisome that the goal resist him so much, in spite of the numerous opportunities that adds. Messi converted in front of the Valladolid, in his last party of the 2020, but also registered too many shots without success.

it is accustoming Messi to this Barça?

In the beginning of campaign, the star of Rosario was very criticised by his performances inside the field and the apathy while it dressed the elastic blaugrana. It came of the controversy of his exit, during the summer, and cost him horrors take him the rhythm to a Barça that was (and is) in transition, with a new trainer, distinct system and mates much younger. The same Messi recognised that at the beginning it was difficult, but now feels more comfortable.

They have been a lot of the changes in Can Barça and is not simple to process them all in two months. In spite of this, Messi seems to be finding the key of the regularity, at least to level of creation of game. Big responsibility of this has it Pedri González, that has turned into the best 'partner' of the Argentinian in the field and that shows that, when they combine, are born the best played of the culés.
