Although in Barcelona they feel they had the opportunity to win Real Madrid in the Classic, especially in the first part according to Gerard Piqué, the absence of ideas of the blaugrana and the good success of Courtois He helped the whites take the duel with very good feelings.
When analyzing the meeting, there are common places where the criticisms of Barcelona and, specifically, in five Blaugrana protagonists who did not measure up as expected.
The player with the most Golden Balls in history is required to be 100% in all matches. Blocked by the white defensive tangle, Marcelo’s image winning him a speed ball in the final stretch of the match he summarizes Messi’s absence in the Classic. They go five unmarked and, again, he is accused of not taking a step forward in the most demanding games.
The debut of the Cantabrian in a Classic did not end with a victory, and many point to him. The decision not to bet on some end in the initial eleven, but for a very conservative 4-4-2, or the changes (although Braithwaite almost culminates his first touch of the ball in goal) did not slow down the step forward that Real Madrid took in the second part. Vinícius did what he wanted for his band and Sethien did not know how to react.
Barcelona’s touch game goes unfailingly through the center of the field, but Busquets has long since lost its rhythm. Before Real Madrid he did not open spaces, he did not vent the ball out and did not enable the top players with enough danger to make a difference.
Griezmann is a striker who contributes goals and game in attack, as he showed in Atlético de Madrid, but not in Barcelona. Neither in minor games, nor this Sunday in the Classic, the Frenchman fell short in his connections with Messi, and both Casemiro and Ramos and Varane stopped him without much effort.
The work of Arthur Melo to give play and joy to Barcelona football did not go well. Its function of degreasing the creation zone of the culé team meant the opposite, and again the possession statistics became useless, largely due to its difficulty in contributing both in attack and defense.
