It shouldn’t be a query of the goalkeeper, nor of defenders or forwards, nor even of whether or not a midfielder performs or not, however quite it’s a crew drawback, because the Barcelona followers know effectively.

The Blaugrana conceded a draw towards Granada in a match designed to enhance their classification within the League. There is not any means for them to stabilize their soccer, nor for them to beat the Nasrid crew, which has 4 attracts and one victory in its final video games towards Barcelona, a disfigured champion and with no different footballer on the sector than Lamine Yamal. It doesn't matter who performs and who trains Granada, for the misfortune of Barcelona. The impact of the resignation introduced by Xavi on the finish of the season ended on the third day of the League.
The go to of Granada allowed us to insist on the design premiered in Mendizorroza. The Blaugrana recovered the determine of the middle midfielder, a place defended by a recycled heart again like Christensen, and have gained a fourth midfielder in change for a 3rd ahead, limiting the assault to Lamine Yamal and Lewandowski. The novelty was the presence of Iñigo Martínez and Pau Cubarsí and the substitution of Araujo to ensure ball output already strengthened with the reappearance of Ter Stegen. The wager didn’t work as a result of surprisingly the goalkeeper hesitated loads, as if he had misplaced sensitivity together with his footwork, and the match was on the mercy of Granada, extra intense and aggressive, very effectively ready to place stress on Barça.
Cacique Medina's crew imposed its bodily high quality, a lot superior in particular person duels, and dwarfed Barcelona, which didn’t cease working in the hunt for the ball, particularly disorganized in its space and with no extra unbalancing participant within the different's subject than Lamine Yamal. The winger topped an excellent cross to Cancelo's far submit after putting a objective ball that Lewandowski didn’t attain. Yamal's objective, nonetheless, didn’t change the script of a match ruled by Granada, which ended up tying in an excellent deal with by Pellistri on the correct facet and whose heart was completed excellently by Ricard Sánchez to the astonishment of Ter Stegen .
Although the 1-1 rating got here after Hongla averted a referred to as objective from Lewandowski, enabled by Pedri in a play naturally guided by Yamal, Granada was a greater crew than Barça. The blaugrana, all the time reactive, couldn’t discover their place in protection and solely attacked when the winger accelerated, the identical one who was already the determine towards Alavés. The silence within the stadium was overwhelming as a result of Barcelona's gradual and bland soccer, which was straightforward for Granada to counter, who relented of their affront, more and more nearer to their goalkeeper than to Ter Stegen. The Barcelona followers didn’t know what to do with the leather-based, too predictable, with out spark or capability for shock and quite the opposite uncovered to Granada's transitions.
Ter Stegen's face prevented Pellistri's objective in a textbook counterattack that denounced Barcelona's poor positioning. Pellistri didn’t forgive a minute later after a collective concession from the Barcelona protection. He doesn't know methods to retreat or put stress on Xavi's crew. The offense will depend on the electrical energy of Yamal and the assists (10) of Gündogan, glorious within the contact for Lewandoski's shot. The tie was short-lived as a result of Ter Stegen conceded once more to a header from Ignasi Miquel. Yamal got here to the rescue, who crossed an unstoppable low shot from outdoors the realm, after slicing the ball to Callejón in an motion extremely protested by Granada. The carousel of possibilities in each objectives adopted each other in Montjuïc.
Ter Stegen averted the fourth and Lamine couldn’t obtain victory when even Marc Guiu was already on the sector. The match had no treatment as a result of fragility of the Blaugrana, taken benefit of by a courageous Granada. The folks of Montjuïc, transformed right into a charity home, not have the power to whistle for Barça.
