Ivan Rakitic has passed to be the midfielder more scorer during the last polish to convert, this season 2019-20, in the only one that hasn't seen goal in the midfield
It calls the attention that a footballer like Ivan Rakitic, after a polish being the midfield player more goleador of the FC Barcelona, have not premièred still to level realizador in what we carry of season 2019-20. True is that this campaign is playing less minutes that antaño and that, until it happened the first third of the course, did not begin to go in with assiduity in the onces culés.
However, it results curious that it was the only of the pure midfield players of the staff that still has not seen goal. All his mates are above his usual figures in what to goals refers (Arturo Vidal 6, Arthur Melo 3, Frenkie of Jong 2 and Busquets 2). The Croat, nevertheless, still has not premièred in spite of having participated in 24 meetings of the 33 possible.
So much Valverde like Setién have empeñado in doing him play like left interior in the last times, a position in which it surrenders worse that in the right interior. In spite of have not marked, this yes, lately have been able to see how has given two assistances of goal to Leo Messi.
But the reality is that, seen it mermada that it is the forward, to the Barcelona would come him of perlas his contribution goleadora. His arrivals from second line, his dry and powerful shots... Along his five first years in the Barça marked 8, 9, 9, 4 and 5 goals. Important goals, some of the which offered points and key victories in the fight by the titles.
It gives the circumstance that the last goal marked it in Santiago Bernabéu does almost a year (2/3/19). It was the 0-1 of the victory that certified, practically, the sentence of League for the FC Barcelona. The same it reserves the first so much for the Classical of the next 1 March. It would not be at all badly.
Messi, with a big responsibility
The wish of the barcelonismo, in any case, is that his targets can help to lighten the responsibility that has Leo Messi in this final stretch of the season, with Dembélé and Suárez lesionados. True is that Griezmann and Ansu Fati also are able to see goal, but still have not arrived to this point of adaptation that allow them explode all his potential goleador. And, in the meantime, the Barça seems to have more than enough of attackers with the recent traspasos of Carles Pérez to the Rome and Abel Ruiz to the Sporting of Knickers...
