Of the Supercopa of Spain remain the feelings, but no the result neither possibility to advance in the championship to the final. It is a vase of cold water for the Barcelona, that had all the intention to play against the Athletic or Athletic, but is true that this time has seen to a FC Barcelona that knows how compete and plant him face to the rival. As it said Xavi, this party can be a turning point and the beginning of a new was that it can be positive and, better still, will be comandada by the youngsters, almost all of the house.

The first is Xavi. It had generated doubts in the beginning of his walk in the picture culé, because the results have not accompanied him. Against the Real Madrid the challenge was maximum and had those who ensured that, how arrived the Madrilenian, went to be a true review and that they were able to go through 'on' of the culés. All the contrary, at least after the half hour of party (after the goal of Vinícius Jr), when the Barça said "present" in Riad. The one of Terrassa achieved 'neutralise' to the madridistas and, although it was not sufficient, give the feeling that his team was upper.

His indications were clear. It was necessary to recover fast and presionar very high, although this point began 'costing' because to the culés costs him a life and half replegarse in the contragolpes (and go that they suffered it against the White House). However, it knew to keep him the pulse to the madridistas and empatar the marker in two occasions, something that seemed unthinkable remembering how much suffer the Barcelona every time that the rival advances . It is (or era?) A mental subject, but today Xavi has achieved a change súmamente important that invites to the optimism.

The egarense remains without the result, but has won him in the blackboard to Ancelotti. It is true that does not cost for "at all", because the same they will not be in the final, but the comillas are by something: it is a key step of face to the immediate future and the confirmation that, to follow like this, yes there is with what litigate. And the merit is largely of the trainer. It went out with the alignment more 'reliable', but did not cost him, although after the goal of 'Vini' forced to his to presionar and gave him resulted: goal to the edge of the rest and better feelings.

In the second part was better and, for the first time (practically) his changes gave resultasdos, in front of an Ancelotti that remained 'tieso' in the technical zone. It went in Pedri that gave air to the team (that is one very good news) and andl Barça kept on being upper, protecting his lines and forcing to the Madrid to replegarse near of Courtois. Even after the 1-2, the Barça followed instiendo while the madridistas expected a run deVinícius or an apparition of Benzema. However, it was an Ansu Fati that lives to appear in key moments (and those that no) to save to his.

Still it is necessary to improve... But there is with what

The Barça has to improve his defensive facet and leave to depend only of Ronald Araújo, the one who again was a rock for his. It corrected the errors of his mates (especially of Dani Alves with Vinícius). Besides, the trainer has to require how, if it wants to presionar high, go to react when the rival take the balloon and initiate a contragolpe, where the team remains nude. The way will be long and sure will have rocks and obstacles, but there is one put. A safe port. And the Classical, probably the hardest party of what goes of season, is the big proof of this.
