The FC Barcelona recovered this Sunday of the hit in the Glass of the King with a so worked triumph like balsámico in LaLiga. In Benito Villamarín there was a lot of football, controversial -expulsions, penaltis and VAR- and tension, in a crash in which it advanced in two occasions the Real Betis until the Catalans accelerated to seal the traced back. Quique Setién, this yes, went back home with positive conclusions.

One of the best news for the technician has name and surnames, neither more neither less than the ones of Frenkie of Jong. His bet for the visit to Seville included a rhombus in the room of machines, with the Dutch to the left, Sergi Roberto to the right, Sergio Busquets of anchor and Arturo Vidal commissioning of functions of half tip and of nine. With more freedom, the one of Arkel showed an exceptional version on the lawn.

A played key to understand his partidazo was his goal, that planted the momentary 1-1 in the marker. The youngster went back to turn into the todoterreno that marvelled in Johan Cruyff Sand, and after receiving a pass of Clément Lenglet near of his area, went out shot to the career. After a combination with Leo Messi remained the best, because it planted in front of the goal, made a control magistral and fusiló to Joel Oaks.

The ex of the Ajax went back to be this brave midfield player and dominador that does him much more decisive, something that threw in fault because his performances like Barcelona have been more tactical and encorsetadas. It is difficult to say that it does it badly in the majority of meetings that complete, but of course this weekend saw him enjoy of a clash with more spaces and the team noticed his influence for well.

His mates need to improve

Although the experiment no of the all negative, did not leave too much very stopped to Sergi Roberto and Sergio Busquets, that were not to the height of the Dutch. To east was missing him continuity because it did not have too support, since Arturo Vidal and the one of Reus showed especially imprecise. The canterano, desubicado in a new return to the centre of the field, played the expulsion with a hard entrance on Carles Aleñá.

The brave approach of Setién, besides, did to suffer to the of Badia, that went saviour with his goal but lived overwhelmed with each arreón of the Andalusians. In spite of his good placing and his tactical responsibility, the physicist no longer allows him resist the charged of the opponents, and the exits in speed of the pupilos of Rubi, with Nabil Fekir inspiradísimo, left him portrayed in several occasions, forcing him to do several faults.
