Ten years after the 'sextete', but Sergio Busquets keeps being a key piece in the ecosystem of the FC Barcelona. Without the one of Badia, the team suffers horrors in the midfield
They happen the years and, by more new faces that arrive to the FC Barcelona, Sergio Busquets keeps like a footballer insustituible in the centre of the Barcelona field. The one of Badía already was an important piece in the sextete that harvested the group culé ten years ago, in 2009, under the control of Pep Guardiola. A decade afterwards, follows having an importance and status that turn him into basic piece to his 31 years.
Proof of this is that the three defeats of the FC Barcelona in LaLiga Santander 2019-20 have arrived without him on the terrain of game. It lost in Saint Mamés against the Athletic, did the ridiculous in The Cármenes in front of the Granada and went out touched anímicamente of the Ciutat of València, where the Raise gave a good review to the Barça and Busquets went in to the field already with the fish sold.
This past Wednesday, in the Classical of the Camp Nou against the Real Madrid, again the one of Badía remained out of the eleven by fault of a feverish process and the team merengue went through on of the culés, especially in the first half hour of game. The high pressure drowned to the midfield players culés, and could say that was missing the criterion and the experience of 'Busi' to sort out.
The exit of balloon of the FC Barcelona never was clean, and Ter Stegen saw forced to play in long in more than an occasion. Now that have happened ten years of the sextete, one darse that Busquets keeps on being an indispensable piece that does not have substitute, by more than there are players that can relieve him in concrete parties like Rakitic or Of Jong.
The ideal substitute of Busquets still has not appeared
It will be necessary, with the step of the time and to measure that approach the withdrawal of the of Badía, find him the relief that deserves in the alignment culé. In a lot of occasions has criticised him by toneless performance during the last years, but the reality is that Busquets gives a 'plus' to the Barça that anybody more is able to give. It is a bridge inmejorable between the defence and the attack, able to generate fluidity in the game and to avoid dangers to the contragolpe.
Of face at the beginning of 2020, expects that it return to the maximum level to catapult to the FC Barcelona to more successes this season 2019-20. With the peak of the Real Madrid of Zidane and the big competition that breathes so much in Europe as in the Spanish football, will not be easy. It will be necessary to try it, nevertheless, and follow taking advantage of the luck to have to Busquets in the staff. Those that more trophies can win before it hang the boots... Better.
