The Barcelona have left backwards, largely, many of the ghosts that have pursued him in the last months and has to , in an important measure, to the level of some players in the actuality. In addition to having the best version of Leo Messi, that no for to mark goals, the blaugrana have had Jordi Alba, Frenkie of Jong, Pedri González or Ronald Araújo in his best moment.

In the case of the left side of the Barça, his 'jump' in this season has been fundamental and the change has seen in the game of the culés. It has taken a step forward in the attack to consolidate like a danger when has spaces by the left lane and the figures show it. In addition to being the maximum assistant in the team, beside Antoine Griezmann, with 10 passes of goal, Alba has 'destapado' as goleador and already adds three so many in the season that have been key for the ones of Ronald Koeman.
