The of the pájaras defensive of the FC Barcelona this season 2020-21 already does time that is worrisome. Although it is true that seemed that this type of shots in the foot had amainado, this Wednesday went back to live a new chapter. And the big protagonist, among others guilty indirect, went Samuel Umtiti. True is that the French received in a committed position, but entertained too much with the balloon when it had to clear without miramientos.

It lost the spherical in the interior of the area, and Soldier took advantage of to assist with a pass of the death to a Kenedy that went in entirely only to finish, almost in the small area. Easy goal, too much, for a Granada that had lived against the ropes in front of the offensive siege of the FC Barcelona during the previous minutes. Result, therefore, unfair to the half part.

With 1-0 in favour of the nazaríes began the second half, and in the first minute of the second time the Granada planted the 2-0 in the electronic. A theft in defence of the local group and a pass in long to the career of Roberto Soldered, that was on line with Umtiti in the moment of the pass, allowed to the leading veteran of 35 years remain only in front of Ter Stegen and define as better knows.

It is true that in this played can not condemn so much to Umtiti as in the one of the first goal, but the reality is that the defender Frenchman was badly positioned to the hour to defend the contragolpe and, when it wanted to react, already went too late when being much slower that Soldier.

Sergi Roberto lesionó before the hour of party

2-0 in favour of the Granada in the minute 46, and the only good news for the FC Barcelona was that it still had half part almost whole to look for the traced back, or at least a tie that carried him to the extention. The fact to have to look for the contrary goal with insistence, however, was a very important risk for a Barça that would leave even more unprotected the defensive zone.

A risk, this yes, that Koeman had to assume yes or yes to try that his team could classify for the semifinals of the Glass of Rey. The first change of the Dutch trainer, unfortunately, was forced: Sergi Roberto lesionó in the minute 55 and forced to the entrance in the field of Sergiño Dest.
