Miralem Pjanic Is being surely the big fiasco of the FC Barcelona this season. The bosnio arrived this past summer by Arthur Melo to give him solidity, balance, arrival and a plus of talent and competitiveness to the centre of the field culé, but until the moment has not achieved to find his place. The one of Tuzla follows without having the full confidence of Ronald Koeman and neither has done sufficient merits as to win it.

This Sunday, in front of the Real Betis, the ex of the Juventus of Turín was to title for the second time consecutive in what it goes of League, arriving to his fifth titularity in total along the championship. A new opportunity to show him to his trainer that makes a mistake not explaining more with him. Unfortunately, the only that did was to increase the suspicions of the Dutch regarding his lace in this Barça.

The Balkan did not find his place in the terrain of game in any moment and was one of the most toneless of the group blaugrana in Benito Villamarín. With Sergio Busquets in the field, the ex bianconero had to play in the right interior, with Riqui Puig in the left. A position in which it comes being usual that play, but that does not fit with his characteristics neither with the role that carried years exerting in Turín.

The one of Tuzla was mediapunta in his origins, but little by little was delaying his position until turning into the mediocentro of the Juve. In the 'Vecchia Signora', Miralem was the catalyst of the game juventino, already was as only mediocentro or in a double pivote in which he played something more retarded. But in Barcelona practically has not played never in this place, since Koeman has left clear that prefers to Busquets or to Frenkie of Jong in this place.

Like interior, Pjanic does not finish to feel comfortable, as it went back to show in Seville. The bosnio tried it and no can him reproach absolutely at all to level of character or win, but was too imprecise and did not improve to the Barça in any moment. It looked for passes to the gap whenever it could, something that gives him very well, but not even like this left his footprint in the crash. By this reason, the technician culé did not doubt in substituting him before the hour of party.

Pjanic Saw the traced back of the Barça from the terracing

Koeman Saw that with the '8' in the field the game of the Barcelona did not go to go to more and in the minute 57 commanded him to the bench beside Riqui to give entrance to Leo Messi and to Francisco Trincao. The changes seated him very well to the barcelonistas, that improved his game and that finished giving him the turn to the result precisely with goals of the Argentinian and the Portuguese. While, Pjanic saw it from the terracing, thinking perhaps in this new opportunity wasted.
