Riqui Puig follows asking to cries an opportunity in the FC Barcelona and his good party against the Juventus can convince to Ronald Koeman of this
The last parties of the FC Barcelona are putting of self-evident the bad moment in which it finds the group of Ronald Koeman. Main drops like the ones of Gerard Hammered, Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembélé or Sergi Roberto are leaving to the team in picture and the recent performances of the Barcelona do not give too optimism, neither by the attitude of the players neither by his capacity futbolística of revertir the situation.
In LaLiga, the situation aggravated a lot with the defeat against the Cádiz, but the Barcelona group hit rock bottom against the Juventus of Turín, with a goleada that separated to the culés of the first place. The FC Barcelona went out to the terrain of game -already went by fear or by fault of win- without attitude and few were those that saved of burns it. Only there was a small spark that improved the face of the team: Riqui Puig.
The canterano, repudiated by Ronald Koeman from the beginning, went out to the terrain of game in the second time to agitate the party and, although it did not result in the marker, achieved his committed. With balloon, Riqui Puig contributed freshness, this style so of the Masia that consists in driving little and deliver the fast balloon -and with precision- to cancel the defensive system of the opponent.
Riqui Puig completed with tarpaulin 37 of the 40 passes that tried, the majority of them with criterion and with a clear idea in attack. But the favourable statistics to the canterano no only reduces to his distribution of the game, but also to his defensive work: in spite of that went in to the terrain of game in the minute 66 -substituting to Pedri González- was the Barcelona that more balloons recovered with six.
The party of Riqui Puig against the Juventus of Turín did not do more than going back to show that the Catalan deserves to have more minutes in a team in which the things do not work and that maybe could improve with him in the field. It seems a populist speech referred to a player that to the that have not done case neither Ernesto Valverde, neither Quique Setién, neither Ronald Koeman, but the pure reality is that the FC Barcelona seems much more dangerous when he goes out to the field.
Few times Ronald Koeman has resorted to Riqui Puig in a moment of difficulty and against the Juventus, totally desperate, threw of him. In a moment in which the team does not work and in which they do lacking revulsivos, the Dutch medita give him more opportunities to change him the face to the team and his good minutes in the decisive duel of Champions League can be a before and an afterwards in his paper inside the team.
Koeman Does not fear to trust the youngsters, arrived the hour of Riqui Puig?
