The FC Barcelona did not have his best staged against the Inter of Milan in past Tuesday. Although the result was very conditioned by the referee's errors, the team trained by Xavi Hernández offered a version very 'poor' and moved away to which came offering in the last weeks, in front of an Italian group that, although it is in full crisis in the Series To, knew to take advantage of his opportunities of 'intimidate' to the culés.

One of the points that more worry generated of the game of the culés was the position and performance of Raphinha, the one who up to now came being one of the most dangerous players of face to the rival area. Against the Inter, the international with Brazil left a performance for the forget, place played to band changed and grieve and was able to give depth by the left. It situated in a more internal position so that Marcos Alonso went up by the band and no 'bumped'.

The result was that the Barça did not generate danger by the left. Ousmane Dembélé, by the right, went the attendant to monopolise the attack of the team. The French was desarcetado and was quite discussed, but the case is that the figure of Raphinha almost happened unobserved completely. In fact, as it has informed the newspaper 'ACE', went one of the big 'signalled' by Xavi Hernández after the party in Milan.

The trainer egarense accused that Raphinha did not look for the goal of the Inter, although they had asked him that it took advantage of until the opportunity more 'insignificant' to finish and that "was always to the remove to take advantage of his power of shot", as they have explained in the before quoted source. Nevertheless, it remained the feeling that it remained in the attempt further of a shot that finish refusing a rival.

Xavi understands that has a lot of responsibility in the grey party of Raphinha and is forced to change of plan to go back to situate to the ex of the Leeds United in the right extreme, his usual position. The trainer knows that it is the ideal formula so that it can be hit in his dribblings and can create disequilibrium, as it came it doing in the last parties of the Barça and how 'dazzled' with the selection of Brazil.

The request of Xavi to Raphinha

As it has explained 'ACE', after the party in Giuseppe Meazza, Xavi held a conversation with the footballer of 25 years that was more selfish in the terrain of game, especially if it is near of the rival goal. In the Barça understand that it is one of the players with better hit to long distance and that, for the moment, is desaprovechando his big virtue.
