The years happen, but Jordi Alba is in the Barcelona to make history. The Catalan of 31 years has been a key piece for the recent victories of the club, adding 6 assistances in the current season. Besides, the technical Ronald Koeman declared, before signing like trainer, that "was a big player and that would do that it went back to have important hours in the team".

The left side, only in 14 parties has showed his performance and that it is the maximum assistant of the team. The most curious of the case is that it still has not been able to give him an assistance to Messi, combination that has given him joys to the followers of the Barcelona during a lot of years.

Jordi Alba now arrives with more frequency at the end of the line and desborda with more precision. After the spaces that leave Coutinho or Pedri, Alba already has conceded him two passes of goal to the young star Ansu Fati (in front of the Villarreal and Madrid) and assisting in three occasions to the French Antoine Griezmann (in front of the Real Betis, the Dynamo Kiev and the Ferencvaros in the Champions League).

The influence of Jordi is remarkable in this season, with his dangerous centres, of this way arrived the penalti on the Danish Martin Braithwaite, or the first goal in front of Osasuna the past Sunday, when the Brazilian Coutinho finished after a centre of the left side so that the goalkeeper will leave a rebound, and Braithwaite planted the 1 to 0 of this big goleada.

Hardly it has competition in the left side

Jordi Alba does not have a big competition in the left side, that shares with Junior Firpo. Koeman Follows trusting the one of L'Hospitalet like one of his big pillars, and especially for the important duels, because of the experience and his exert current with the team.
