When it comes to competing at the highest level in today's football, a solid defense is a great first step. The strikers are becoming faster and more skilled, something that Andreas Christensen has been able to counteract very well
The FC Barcelona went back to complete a meeting leaving to the rival without marking a goal in the marker. The cules alone have fit seven so many in 20 days of LaLiga and after the goal in own of Jules Koundé in front of the Betis, the Seville could not demolish the wall that right now has the Barcelona club with his line of four defenders, in addition to Ter Stegen in the goal.
This defence has had an ingredient that has surrendered much better of what expected . Andres Christensen went back to contest a perfect party, or at least very near of the perfection and every time that this occurs many remember that the central arrived the past summer to the Camp Nou in return of 'swim'. The defender arrived free to the City Condal after not renewing his agreement with Chelsea.
Beside the Danish the Barça fichó to Raphinha, Koundé, Lewandowski, Kessié, Pablo Tower, Bellerín and Marcos Alonso and Christensen. Of all those surely only there was a footballer on whose performance all were convinced: the '9' Polish. Another, as Jules Koundé, that generated few doubts by his knowledge of the Spanish football. But, probably, very few had foreseen that Christensen would give the performance that have seen him in the first-half of the season.
Now, in the first meeting of the second turn the central of the Barça has gone back to show safe and with a confidence in his exit of balloon that reassures to a lot of followers culés. Although it does not have a profile like which offered Gerard Hammered, yes is true that the ex Chelsea has showed that it can fit in the style of Barcelona game without any problem.
A couple of high level
Beside Ronald Araújo are being, at least in numbers, the best pair of head offices of all Europe and like this prepare to confront to the Manchester United in less than two weeks. That eliminatory of Europe League, against a Rashford inspired and a Have Hag with resources of attack very interesting will be the ideal opportunity so that Christensen follow showing the 'bargain' that found the Barça in the 2022.
