The fall of the FC Barcelona in front of the Real Madrid in the final of the Supercopa of Spain only has gone back to evidenciar the big quantity of problems that have the ones of Xavi Hernández during this season. Although it is clear that it can suceder that in a Classical a bad approach leave you by behind in the marker and the rival surpass you, the true is that the culés also remained very 'signalled' on the terrain of game, already was by fault of attitude or of individual errors to the hour to play the party.

Ronald Araújo, Jules Koundé and Andreas Christensen, for initiating the list with some footballers, surely have been the lowest point of the Barça in the party, beside Xavi that it also has to assume responsibilities for having made a mistake with the idea to pose the meeting. The three head offices, with the Uruguayan being lateral this Sunday in Arabia, have added errors of attitudes and aptitudes during almost all the party.

Xavi did not back to his and the players neither to his míster

The central French has committed an error that has facilitated the first goal, trying leave inhabilitado to Vinicius without having in consideration to his mates, but less than five minutes afterwards all the defence also has failed when throwing the line in the second. The plan of high block and the double pivote of Ilkay Gundogan and Frenkie of Jong to defend to the ones of Carlo Ancelotti simply did not work and already to the 10' the meeting was quite bent for the Madrid.

In both so many, as well as in other goals and played, the Barcelona defence did not answer, Iñaki Crag was far of the actions, and the midfield no presionó in any moment to the madridistas. Alejandro Balde suffered with the idea to have a high block in defence and enabled to Rodrygo or Vinicius in several occasions, in addition to being unimportant in attack with his centres or projections. A very similar performance to the of Ferran Torres, the one who although had two clear occasions of goal, really could not be important in the 60 minutes that played.

A midfield culé that it was of less to more, and again to less

The party of players like Frenkie of Jong or Lewandowski had some positive moments, but in the case of both there was not really a point in which they could lead a change of script. The Dutch had a really negative party, so much that it attack as in defence, in addition to not being present in a lot of moments. Gündogan, beside Pedri, surely was the most positive of the first time for the Barça, but in the seconds 45' all dissipated and now Xavi will have to try buoy his project.
