FC Barcelona, with fewer changes and more shooting, surpassed this Thursday to the Napoli in their first duel. Rakitic And Busquets countered the autogoal of Samuel Umtiti
The FC Barcelona continues improving in this pre-season 2019-20, and this Thursday found a new victory in the first party of turns it North American in front of the Naples of Carlo Ancelotti. In another party with fewer changes that in the previous, Catalans and Italians had of opportunities very clear of goal, but all the targets arrived of the boots culés. Busquets and Rakitic decanted the marker in favour of the Barça, whereas Samuel Umtiti transformed an autogol when trying clear a shot of Alley.
In general lines, could say that it was a party that left a lot of positive news for the Barça. The first of all was the debut of Junior Firpo, the one who acted to a good level of game when having arrived filmed physically to the Barça, pertinent of a Betis with which accumulated more days of pre-season. The new left-handed side of the Barça starred several offensive rises with danger, although it was something lacking of forcefulness backwards.
It notices that it still will need a time of adaptation, of the same form that a Griezmann that went back to be headline and, by fourth consecutive party in this pre-season 2019, remained without seeing goal. The French star was very participatory during the 45 minutes that remained on the lawn, shooting in several occasions and remaining very near of the goal.
It was not the day of his debut goleador, however, and the connection with Luis Suárez did not have the effect wished in the leading culé. Both are already mates of matt in the expedition culé, but will do fault a lot of trainings and parties more so that they accumulate chemical and together experience on the terrains of game. It could say, in fact, that the best of the party for the Barça was Net Walled.
The new guardameta culé starred several interventions of success, the majority of them to avoid goals sung. It saved two dangerous shots of Insigne and Mertens in the first twenty minutes, amargó the afternoon to Milik in the second time and, besides, was very attentive to the hour to abandon quickly his area to cut attempts of contragolpe of the Napoli.
The Barça improved in the second time
Until the goal of Busquets, that arrived in the minute 39, the Napoli had dominated with clarity on the lawn. It went on doing it until the rest, since it took three minutes in equalising the goal of the Barça thanks to a shot raso of Alley that Umtiti diverted at the end of his own put. Already in the second time, with the changes the strengths equalised , and the Barcelona was dominating increasingly the possession of the balloon.
Ousmane Dembélé Sent a shot to the stick and kicked in two occasions more, leaving the balloon very near of the goal of Meret. Also they tried it Rafinha Alcántara and Moussa Wagué, although it was Rakitic the attendant to undo the differences in the minute 79, with an obús from out of the area after having found a loose ball. Second goal of Rakitic in this pre-season, that serves him to be the maximum realizador of these first parties of preparation together with Carles Pérez, author of a doublet in front of the Vissel Kobe.
Although it is true that to the Barça remains him a lot for improving, and that some players like Messi, Coutinho, Arthur and Arturo Vidal not even have played still in this pre-season, little by little begin to see how the team goes filming and recovering the rhythm of competition. No in vain, from the defeat in front of Chelsea (1-2), the Barça accumulates already three consecutive triumphs in front of Vissel Kobe (0-2), Arsenal (2-1) and Napoli (1-2). It touches to follow improving.
