THE PERFORMANCE OF ANSU FATI, IN DETAIL
Statistics against sensations: What best defines Ansu Fati's season?
Ansu Fati is very close to reaching 100 games with FC Barcelona. He has added most of them this season, in which although he has left injuries behind, he continues without getting regularity in Xavi Hernández's plans
Ansu Fati Is to five parties to reach the 100 with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona. From his debut, in the season 2019-2020, the attacker formed in The Masia has been a 'fixed' in the first Barcelona team, until the point that inherited the '10' of Leo Messi. Nevertheless, between the injuries and fault of confidence has cost him 'settle' and recover the magic that enamoró to all the barcelonismo when it burst into in the elite.
This season has been key for the international with Spain, at least in the physical appearance. It has been able to contest 37 of the 39 official parties of the Barça, up to now. It lost one by technical decision and another by some annoyances; impressive figures regarding previous years and that speak that, finally, has recovered his best physical version and has sacked of the injuries that punished him in the last two years.
To put it in context, in the past season Ansu lost 35 clashes by physical problems. In this year, it has stepped advance and it is innegable that has encouraged to go in between the plans of the Barça, but is not a secret for anybody that has lost the 'magic' and his explosive quality that had characterised him when it appeared in 2019... And this has punished him.
The statistics of Ansu Fati in the season 2022-2023
Although Ansu Fati has played 37 parties of the 39 that has contested the Barça in this season, the reality is that only it has been able to be headline in fourteen of them: The two against Viktoria Plzen by the Champions League and the rest in LaLiga: Mallorca, Villarreal, Valencia (both clashes), Espanyol, Athletic of Madrid, Getafe, Girona and Cádiz. Deepening more, only has been able to complete two complete crashes: in the farewell of Europe and in front of the picture azulón in the Spotify Camp Nou.
In this sense, Ansu has completed 1.339 minutes in this season, with participation in nine goals: six has marked them he (3 in LaLiga, 2 in Glass of Rey and one in the Supercopa of Spain) and three assistances in the domestic championship. Has a participation each 148,7 minutes that, speaking of an acting that has 'accustomed' to play in the last 30' of each crash, are good registers.
In fact, in what it goes of season Ansu has marked five goals going out from the bench. Against the Real Sociedad, for example, in 26 minutes had sufficient time to give two assistances and top his night with a goal. Can speak that it has worked better like revulviso, but neither has been very constant of face to the goal.
Ansu Fati Follows without finding his best version
The statistics endorse to an Ansu Fati that, especially in this last month and half, has had big problems to impose and give loose rein to his football. Every time it has repeated more the image of him llegandoal bench frustrated, annoying and disappointed, that the one of the '10' thrilled for participating in a goal. It has affected the competition in the line of attack, yes, but also that it costs him much more be decisive.
And it is that, when it burst into in the Barça, was a player that left the feeling that they fell him the goals of the bolsilllo; no only by all those that marked, but by his implication in the attack, desparpajo and quality to the hour of encarar, combine and give loose rein to his speed. That had the balloon was synonymous that something could happen and of there that it saw him in the Barça like the natural successor of Lionel Messi.
His situation has changed a lot, more than what any one had expected or imagined. It does not help him, neither, that from his surroundings in this 2023 are opening the doors to a possible exit of the Spotify Camp Nou that, although before it seemed impossible, now is not an idea descabellada. In any case, would result impossible to think that it has finish him the magic... It is necessary to remember that has, only, 20 years and that still has a lot of career by in front. It deserves , as little, a vote of confidence.
