The round of LaLiga is just around the corner and will return to competition in the week of June 8 as indicated by Pedro Sánchez and later Javier Tebas ratified, indicating June 11 as its ideal date. For this reason, the teams, in addition to physically tuning, also have to do it from a mental and error correction.
It is no less the case of FC Barcelona that despite occupying the first place, has shown deficiencies and weaknesses in their domain, being more solvent than better than their rivals. Those of Setién have to put one more gear and attack certain issues in this final stretch of the campaign to get to capture the domain which has its staff compared to other teams, also within the field.
One of the great changes that soccer will undergo is changes. The break completely for more than two months without training will take its toll on the physical condition of the players, so rotations will be essential. With games that could go on to have five substitutions per game, it will become increasingly important have all the players at the right pace to determine a match.
Setién will have to give a return to his approaches and his fixes, especially in the midfield, where between De Jong and Busquets they add more minutes than the rest of the coach’s options (Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Arthur and Riqui Puig).
Recover lost players
Another positive key that rotations bring is the return of players who have lost weight in the team. Players like Rakitic, Arthur or Ansu Fati They have seen their minutes considerably reduced, either due to poor performance or being out of shape, but it is the coach’s job bring out the best in these players that have proven in the past their great quality.
Solve in the last 3/4 of the field
In several matches this season Barça has recovered that soporific game that characterized him in the worst moments of the ‘tiki-taca’. Touching, touching and touching without end with the eternal waiting for a gap to open in the rival defense. Setien has to give his players tools to unclog those situations and propose other alternatives, centers or distant shots to make your game more unpredictable.
Confidence in the quarry was another of Quique Setién’s great promises upon his arrival on the Barça bench. Despite the fact that the youth players have not had a presence in the team beyond punctual encounters, they are now in a optimal situation to make the leap. Los Riqui Puig, Ansu Fati, Álex Collado and company they won’t have the pressure of having to impress Camp Nou fans or receive the hostility of the rival fans and they should have more comfort to develop their football.
Improve without the hobby
An aspect that seems key to the ‘new football’. Barça registers a Negative goalscoring balance when you don’t have your fans, with 18 scored and 19 conceded. The Catalans have lost five games, tied three and won another five away from home in LaLiga, few figures that will have to improve. Will be essential for those of Setien to progress in this aspect, even more so when in none of the remaining meetings will they have their audience behind.
Luis Suárez, the best ‘signing’
The return of the Uruguayan is a very important added value, both on and off the field. Yes, it will be necessary to see the state of form in which Suarez returns, but with him Barcelona recovers Messi’s best partner. Without a doubt, if his chemistry with Messi continues as usual, Barcelona will already have won a lot and will be one of the great “signings” of LaLiga.
