IT IS A FUNDAMENTAL PIECE FOR XAVI
Where does Gavi perform best? X-ray of the qualities and the level of the '6' of Barça
Gavi has taken a step forward this season, showing versatility as a midfielder and also as a winger in the coach's new offensive scheme
The first turn of the FC Barcelona in League left spectacular numbers that situate to the Barcelona like one of the solidest teams of all the European continent. The ones of Xavi Hernández only have fit seven goals in the domestic tournament and are leaders in solitary to eight points of his escort, the Real Madrid of Carlo Ancelotti. However, there are several details that have consolidated to the group like the best of all Spain.
For anybody is a secret that the defence has been determinant in what it goes of campaign and is a shot typical of the system of game of the technician, the one who in his second period has found the formula so that all are in tuning. Nevertheless, the polivalencia of some players has done that the Barça can moldear his diagram according to the rivals and that also present an eleven of gala that seems to be fully clear-cut.
One of the protagonists is Gavi. To his 18 years, has worked in different positions and his capacity of adaptation has been fundamental in the good game of the team. It began accompanying to Pedri and to Sergio Busquets in the medullary by his style of safe game and his good tactical shots, so much in control and transfer of the balloon as in the recovery in repliegue.
Nevertheless, in the last meetings the trainer has decided to implement a system with four midfield players, positioning to Frenkie of Jong like driver of game and to Gavi by the left band, substituting to Raphinha and also to Ousmane Dembélé, that finds lesionado of the previous rectum of his left thigh. In fact, his posture by the sides has allowed him have more leadership in the markers, giving two passes of goal and seeing door in front of the Real Madrid in the Supercopa and also beating the network of Bono in front of the Seville in League.
Now, although the statistics reveal that it is much more effective like false extreme, since in addition to promoting the attack is a complete piece in the pressure in exit, the true is that it does not seem to be his position on a long-term basis inside the Barcelona. Sergio Busquets could go out during the summer and Frenkie of Jong will be the natural heir for his position, what will go back to leave a free place in the midfield. Added to this, Dembélé will return of his physical damages and so much Ansu Fati like Raphinha and Ferran Torres will litigate by the remaining place inside the eleven.
For the moment Xavi will continue using to Gavi by the left and will follow evaluating his growth to take a decision to future. The canterano has played it practically everything, with 30 commitments in the sack and a total of 1985' minutes of game, where great 2 goals and five assistances in all the competitions. It is a bastion of the club and the following straight of meetings, between which stand out Villarreal and Manchester United, will be determinants to establish which role will have the Andalusian on the lawn of the Spotify Camp Nou.
