⭕🔴Barcelona 2x1 Inter de Milao⚫⭕ Primeiro jogo da Champions no Camp Nou nessa temporada, com Alba e Firpo fora, quem jogou pela lateral esquerda foi Semedo, já pela direira Sergi. No ataque vimos novamente o trio MSG, que mostraram não se entender totalmente, fora que é um trio sem profundidade e sem Alba e um lateral pela direita que faça o mesmo, o time fica sem amplitude e se complicou pra enfrentar as linhas de defesa da equipe italiana. O Barcelona perdeu novamente muitas bolas no ataque e sofreu com a recomposição, o que acaba prejudicando o estilo de jogo do Busquets, que foi substituido por Vidal. A Inter abriu o placar em pouco tempo de jogo e foi superior no primeiro tempo. No segundo, o clube blaugrana conseguiu voltar melhor do que no primeiro tempo, mas longe de apresentar um bom futebol. Dembélé, mesmo não tendo a qualidade de Griez conseguiu criar chances de gol e deu profundidade, mas erra muito e entrega a bola pro adversário diversas vezes, contudo, como havia citado, a entrada de Vidal acelera a recomposição e os contra-ataques se tornam menos eficientes. Suarez marcou dois belos gols, o segundo com uma bela jogada individual de Messi, que mesmo voltando de lesão foi MOTM segundo o Whoscored, uma pena seguir sem gols contra a Inter. A dupla Arthur e De Jong trocou mais de 180 passes, mas sem a movimentação ofensiva, poucos são em profundidade. Uma vitória que mostra quão forte é o Barcelona no Camp Nou, pois foi longe de ser una boa partida. 🔻Acorda Valverde! Visca Barça!🔻

🔵⚪Getafe 0 vs 2 Barça🔵🔴 🔸Um jogo sem muita criatividade, sem lances vistosos, jogo que empolgou pouco quem assistiu. E os jogos do Barcelona nessa temporada tem sido assim. Nem nosso trio ideal de meio conseguiu. Um Busquets que não brilhou tanto, FDJ jogando simples e sem muito brilho e um Arthur que foi o melhor em campo, não foram capazes de gerar volume. 🔸Atrás, Stegen mais uma vez foi perfeito quando exigido, e ainda saiu com uma assistência de uns 60m para gol de Luisito, no fim da primeira etapa. A zaga até ia bem, apesar de alguns erros de posicionamento. Um Firpo errático, que acabou conseguindo um gol no início do segundo tempo; precisa entender que as chances serão poucas..hora de aproveitar. Sergi com bola oferece mais que Semedo, mas falta velocidade ao canterano tanto no ataque quanto na defesa. O ponto negativo fica com Lenglet, que foi expulso de maneira idiota num lance desnecessário. Falta dura numa chegada atrasada e muito longe da zona de perigo. Não pode acontecer. 🔸No ataque, a nova lesão de Dembélé tirou a oportunidade de vermos um trio mais explosivo. Tivemos que suportar Suárez novamente. Está pesado, sem ritmo de jogo. Perdeu metros de corrida pra um zagueiro em um lance, e sempre finalizando mal. Griezzman novamente mostrando que ao contrário do que se imaginava, não tem mais a manha de jogar na esquerda, sempre aparecia com mais perigo quando afunilava. Na direita, Carles Pérez mostrou muita vontade. Foi o melhor dos 3, e mostrou que permanecer no time principal é apenas um dos objetivos dele, o PD de La Masia quer mais espaço, e do jeito que vem jogando, está merecendo. 🔸Rakitic entrou, pouco adicionou, Semedo também. Faltou Wague. 🎩E o comentário adicional fica novamente por conta de Arthur. O que ele vem jogando é absurdo. Cada jogada dele, cada passe, tem um porquê. Ele nao perde a bola, ele não passa a bola por passar. Cada vez mais presente no terço final, o meia brasileiro está em plena evolução, e nesse momento, é simplesmente indispensável ao time. Que lindo é vê-lo jogar, MOTM. 🔵Visca Barça!!🔴

Barcelona 2x1 Villarreal 🔴Pedimos desculpas por não ter postado sobre o desastre contra Granada, mas voltamos a nossa programação normal. ⭕Contra o Villarreal, tendo o trio MSG pela primeira vez como titular, o rendimento não foi o esperado quando se contratou Griezmann. 🔴 Suarez vem caindo de rendimento ano após ano, briga com a bola, erra tabela e mal consegue dominar a bola. Será que é realmente necessário ter ele em campo apenas pra brigar com zagueiro e abrir espaço? Além de que ele é menos um defendendo, e como o clube leva tantos gols, não se deve ficar no luxo de ter 2 atacantes sem voltar. Ponto pra Valverde que não teve medo de tirar ele de campo. ⭕ Messi saiu na primeira metade por desconforto, mas deixou uma assistência. Torcemos para que não seja nada de mais. 🔴 Griezmann, apesar do gol e ser participativo, aparenta não se sentir confortável jogando pela esquerda. Após a entrada dos dois pontas, se sentiu bem mais livre. ⭕Dembélé voltou a jogar pós-lesão, entrou no lugar de Messi logo no intervalo, botou fogo no jogo, não foi tão burro e criou 2 chances de gol, uma pena Griezmann ter furado e Suarez ter desperdiçado... querendo ou não, Dembesta faz falta, tanto pra quem o ama, pra quem o odeia. 🔴Fati foi Fati, partiu pra cima dos adversários e deu alegria aos culés, mostrando características do ponta ousado e veloz, que não tem medo de driblar. Com o amadurecimento físico e mental, tem potencial de craque. ⭕O meio de campo não conseguiu ser dominante nessa partida esteve sem De Jong (único meia que tinha jogado todas as partidas até agora) e Valverde optou por Sergi Roberto, pois ele pode flutuar quando Messi for por dentro, mas novamente, partida ruim dele, ninguém aguenta mais ver ele nos 11 iniciais, tem apenas lampejos e no seu padrão, não é melhor que Vidal, Frenkie ou Rakitic. 🔴Arthur foi o MOTM, sempre distribuindo o jogo com muita qualidade, sendo o jogador que mais tocou na bola, fora o golaço que marcou. ⭕A defesa continua exposta e Stegen ainda falhou na partida (é relativo, podes achar falhar ou não), mas como ponto positivo, Firpo foi melhor do que na partida anterior. 🔴Pra Finalizar... Quem tem mais, tem 6! Visca Barça!

Borussia Dortmund 0x0 Barcelona ⭕Sendo o segundo jogo na história do Barcelona contra o Borussia no Westfalenstadion (a primeira terminou em 1-1, 11/03/98), não se esperava vida fácil para o Barcelona, pois é um time veloz e intenso. 🔴O primeiro tempo foi bem equilibrado, jogo lá e cá, pressão funcionando e conseguiram manter a posse, apesar da falta de finalizações; Já a segunda etapa, até os 30/35 minutos foi totalmente do Borussia, os jogadores aparentavam estar bem cansados e a marcação pressão nem fez cócegas, por pouco não levamos 2/3 gols, Stegen foi monstruoso e salvou a equipe, o MOTM. ⭕Valverde optou por usar Ansu pela direita e Griez pela esquerda por quesitos defensivos, mas acaba prejudicando a fase ofensiva, pois rendem mais quando não estão invertidos. Isso mudou quando Alba saiu lesionado e entrou Sergi pela direita, e como ele é fraco defensivamente, Valverde mandou Griez pra lá pra dar uma ajuda (Griezmann voltaria a jogar pela esquerda pois Messi entrou). Fati criou pouco e errou muito, rendeu um pouco mais quando foi pra esquerda, mas sentiu a pressão de jogar na Alemanha e não fez uma boa partida, infelizmente. Griez se preocupou mais em defender e ajudar coletivamente do que aparecer no ataque para arrematar, jogar o Francês na esquerda é desperdiçar seu talento, mas queimar ele por conta disso é absurdo. 🔴Suarez começou jogando pela primeira vez pós-lesão, partida bem abaixo (uau que surpresa) do Gordo, erra muito e acaba com as jogadas ofensivas, se tornou um jogador de La Liga, uma pena. Se ele vai dar a volta por cima eu não sei, mas ter ele em campo apenas pra brigar com zagueiro não dá mais. 🚨continua nos comentários!🚨

⚽OSA 2-2 BAR⚽ 🔵Jogo que o intervalo fez toda a diferença no rendimento e futebol apresentado pelo Barça. Um 1° tempo bisonho de toda a equipe. Logo no começo do jogo, Semedo cochilou, e um cruzamento na segunda trave, em suas costas, 1-0 Osasuna. O Barça não achava os caminhos para o ataque, circulava a bola lentamente pelo campo e ninguém foi digno de destaque positivo na primeira metade. 🔴No 2° tempo o time virou a chave. Semedo saiu para a entrada de Ansu Fati, e Valverde deslocou Sergi para a LD. Numa cabeçada de manual, o garoto de 16 anos empatou. Gol e assistência (C. Perez) de La Masia. Como disse o narrador espanhol "ver para creer, La Masia es poder". 🔵Valverde, que esteve muito bem nas trocas, tirou Rafinha e colocou Arthur. Que partidaça fez o camisa 8, muito ofensivo, buscando passes verticais e pressionando alto. E em um 'pressing', Busquets leu bem a saída de jogo deles e interceptou, De Jong passou pra Arthur que teve tempo dentro da grande área pra limpar, ajeitar e bater. 1-2 Barça, que momento para o primeiro gol de Arthur. 🔴Por fim, quando já imaginávamos ampliar o placar, Pique bisonho, foi afoito para interceptar um cruzamento e a bola bateu em seu braço...penal convertido por Torres, que fez seu segundo na partida. 🔵Ainda teve tempo para Carles Perez perder um gol fácil, cara a cara com o arqueiro rival, num passe pornográfico de Arthur cruzando toda a grande área, nas costas da zaga do Osasuna. Fim de jogo, 2-2. O Barça começa a preocupar, ja que esses pontos podem fazer falta lá na frente. 🔴Setores: 🔸Stegen esteve muito bem, fez o que pôde, e o primeiro gol era praticamente indefensável; 🔸Salvo o pênalti tolo cometido por Pique, a dupla de zaga esteve relativamente bem; 🔸A dupla de laterais esteve muito mal no primeiro tempo, mas no segundo tempo, Sergi-Alba estiveram um tanto melhores; 🔸Busi-Arthur-Jong, nosso meio tão sonhado esteve em campo no segundo tempo, e a impressão foi que muita coisa boa pode vir desse trio. Alta expectativa; 🔸Rafinha forçou demais as jogadas, Perez não foi mal mas perdeu um gol feito, Griezzman esteve desconectado o jogo todo. O entendimento com os companheiros ainda não está afinado.

Barcelona 5x2 Real Betis Após ser dominado no Camp Nou no ano passado, tendo uma aula com Setien, Barcelona voltou a enfrentar o Betis no camp nou, e impressionantemente, foi um baita jogo coletivo proposto por Valverde. A equipe criou diversas chances de gol, mas começou atrás no placar, contudo conseguiu o empate antes do intervalo, um primeiro tempo bem morno em geral. Na segunda metade o time voltou mais intenso e buscando o gol em todo momento, o coletivo foi monstruoso e foi um grande destaque dessa partida. Betis nessa temporada veio com uma proposta diferente, ficou com menos de 30% de posse de bola e finalizou pouco, se aproveitando dos erros de saída de bola do Barcelona. 🔴Destaques: ⭕Ansu fati - 3o jogador mais novo a vestir a camisa do Clube, entrou e mostrou personalidade, foi inteligente e incisivo; 🔴Perez - jogador inteligente taticamente, mostrou personalidade e lembra bastante Pedro em partes; ⭕Griezmann - Deitou na partida, flutuou bem mais e teve mais liberdade pra mostrar seu jogo, se aproximando dos pontas e podendo flutuar mais; 🔴Rafinha - apesar de ser errar algumas chances de gol, vem sendo um grande destaque nesse início de temporada, entende muito bem o estilo de jogo; ⭕Busquets - apesar da falha no primeiro gol, foi um monstro em geral, destruiu; 🔴Lenglet - zagueiro que gerava desconfiança vem a cada dia se tornando mais unânime, foi sensacional e ganhou todas; ⭕Semedo - deu uma assistência, mais do que em toda temporada passada; 🔴De Jong - um dos únicos abaixo do esperado hoje, jogou praticamente de ponta para dar liberdade a Rafinha, um sacrifício para o bem maior. Por mais incrível que pareça, Alba tem sim um botão de finalização, então fica a reflexão, se tem possibilidade do Alba chutar, você tem de ficar com a morena. Visca Barça! #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #griezzman #messi #carlesperez #rafinha #DeJong #Busquets #SergiRoberto #betis #realbetis

⚽Dortmund vs Barça⚽ 🔵Um jogo que tem tudo para ser muito difícil ou relativamente fácil. Acredito que o Borussia possa nos atingir com 2-3 gols ou que leve uma quantidade tão grande quanto. Nossa defesa já foi mais sólida e o Borussia jogando em casa, vai explorar muito a velocidade dos atacantes. A transição rápida e contra ataques fulminantes serão a principal forma de agressão contra nós. 🔴Porém, a defesa do Dortmund é fraca, ainda que Hummels tenha chegado, ele já não está em sua melhor fase, e é possível que criemos muitas chances. Veremos se nossa pontaria está em dia. 🔵Eu entraria com meio campo do jogo passado e colocaria Suarez no ataque no lugar de Ansu. Messi não deve ser arriscado, a princípio, esse é o primeiro jogo de um grupo duríssimo, arriscar a integridade física de La Pulga é temerário. 🔴A dúvida fica apenas para a lateral direita. Semedo não vem tão bem, e Sergi é Sergi. O Borussia deve nos pressionar alto dentro do Signal Iduna Park, então ter Roberto é melhor para saídas de bola limpas e construção de jogadas desde a defesa. Mas num embate com Brandt ou Thorgan Hazard + Guerrero, Semedo tem mais capacidade de conter avanços além de sempre ser uma válvula de escape. 🔵Um outro detalhe é a batalha Sancho x Alba. Espero que nossa avenida pela esquerda não seja uma presa fácil para o explosivo inglês. Nossas laterais serão certamente cruciais no jogo, principalmente no quesito defensivo. É aqui que podemos perder o jogo. 🔴Nossa maior expectativa está no meio. Nosso melhor trio deve estar em campo, e ai saberemos o nível de maturidade desses 3 juntos em campo. Que seja uma grande noite de Champions. E El Pistolero, quebrará finalmente seu jejum fora de casa? 🔵O sonho da 6a orelhuda vai começar! Visca Barça!!!🔴 #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #griezzman #messi #carlesperez #Ansufati #DeJong #Busquets #pique #suarez #Semedo #SergiRoberto #arthurmelo #dortmund #borussiadortmund

Estamos atrasados e o foco agora é total na Champions League. Messi foi liberado pelo DM e o nível de ilusão ta como? No jogo de ontem, pudemos desfrutar do que tanto esperamos, FDJ + Arthur e Busi de 'pivote'. Nosso meio vem trabalhando bem, com um pressing interessante, que há umas temporadas não víamos. Nosso ataque continua produzindo e Ansu Fati surpreendendo demais; continuamos esperando mais de Griezzman, mas há darmos tempo ao francês. Destaque negativo para nossa defesa, ja são 7 gols sofridos, e estamos expostos demais. Nossa transição ataque-pressimg-defesa está deficiente e é nosso principal ponto a ser corrigido. Amanhã contra o Dortmund, com jogadores tão rapidos e agressivos, não devemos vacilar, ou levaremos gols que não podemos num grupo tão duro quando o nosso parece ser. Visca Barça!!!

Joan Gamper 2019 / Rakuten Cup Como é claro, a página voltou pro português, agora vamos pro assunto. Nesses 3 jogos que antecedem a temporada europeia podemos ver um pouco do que o Barcelona pode apresentar na temporada. Normalmente os jogos de pré-temporada tem pouca intensidade e isso ocorreu nesses jogos, mas não é o principal a se cobrar neles, então vou apresentar alguns tópicos específicos que chamaram a atenção positivamente ou negativamente. - De Jong: Vem se adaptando rapidamente ao clube, aparece como opcão de passe, se movimenta bastante e sabe sofrer pressão com tranquilidade, mas nota-se que usar ele de 1° volante pode acabar prendendo um pouco seu jogo e acaba participando menos da partida. Gostaria de vê-lo ao lado de Busquets pois teria mais liberdade, talvez futuramente aconteça; - Griezmann: Até agora Grizou não marcou gols,  mas foi um jogador que se mostrou bem participativo durante as partidas, apesar de que a função do 9 não é a que executa melhor, jogou alguns minutos no Joan Gamper com Suarez, mas não foi o suficiente pra analisar como funcionaria a parceria. Por ser um jogador versátil seria interessante vê-lo fazendo outras funções; - Perez: Valverde utilizou alguns jogadores da base nessa temporada, um dos que se destacou foi Carles Perez, aparenta ser um jogador que entende o estilo de jogo e é muito coletivo, fez 2 gols no Vissel Kobe e se mostrou participativo e incisivo; - Dembélé: Fazendo sua primeira pré-temporada pelo clube, não fez partidas de alto nível, errando diversos passes. Dembélé é um jogador naturalmente individualista, em alguns momentos prende a bola e demora pra tocar (fora que erra quando toca) se não conseguir ajustar isso nunca dará certo no Barcelona, independentemente do seu talento; - Riqui Puig: É a grande promessa da la masia e xodó da torcida, tem qualidade no passe e é coletivista, mas em alguns momentos força passes pra se destacar. Em geral, fez uma boa pré-temporada, mas o peso negativo é o físico, talvez seja o que impeça ele de subir pro principal; O restante nos comentários.

Tour nos EUA 2019 Fechando a pré-temporada, Barcelona enfrentou o Napoli 2x (Miami e Michigan), venceu ambas e mostrou uma curva de evolução em relação as partidas anteriores por conta dos jogadores já estarem pegando ritmo, o primeiro ainda foi bem morno com um meio de campo pesado no primeiro tempo, constituído pela dupla Rakitic - Busquets, já o segundo foi bem mais dinâmico acontecendo pela primeira vez o trio Griez - Suarez - Dembélé, e um meio de campo mais dinâmico e jovem com Aleña - Frenkie - Sergi. Agora vão os pontos que me chamaram atenção: - Dembélé: apresentou curva de evolução se compararmos com as 3 primeiras partidas da temporada, errou? sim, mas não deixou de ir pra cima e foi bem mais eficiente do que anteriormente; - Griezmann: ainda se adaptando ao clube fez boas partidas e aparenta estar enturmado com o elenco, um jogador muito coletivo que vai acrescentar dentro e fora de campo; - Puig: novamente, conseguiu demonstrar que tem grande potencial mas o quesito físico não alterou de um dia pra outro; - Frenkie: jogador absurdo, entende o estilo de jogo cruyffista mais do que qualquer um! Tem tudo pra criar uma nova era no clube, agora só basta apreciar; - Firpo: fez sua estreia "ok", falhou no lance do gol na primeira partida, mas também havia treinado apenas 3 dias com o clube, então criticar ele agora é demais; - Neto: grande goleiro, fez uma partidaça na primeira partida, é muito seguro! Visca Barça!

🔴 Athletic vs Barcelona 🔵Muita expectativa principalmente quando a escalação foi divulgada. Um trio de meio renovado, De Jong jogando de 'pivote' com Aleñà e Sergi saindo da lateral pra sua posição de origem. Isso deixava a dupla Semedo/Dembélé no lado direito, o que gerava também boas lembranças. 🔴O que se viu foram problemas antigos. Dificuldade na recomposição e roubada de pola após perda. Um meio pouco criativo e pouca chegada, troca de passes lentas e estéreis. Suárez ficou pouco em campo, saiu com a panturrilha machucada e Griezzman teve a chance de jogar centralizado, onde tem mais facilidade que pela esquerda, mas se mostrou muito desconectado do time. Dembélé foi o que nós conhecemos (negativamente) errático e precipitado. 🔵Nossa linha defensiva, ainda que pouco exposta, foi bem. De Jong foi o segundo melhor em campo, mas não foi tão acionado ofensivamente. Aleñà esteve sonolento, e essa é minha maior critica pra ele. Sergi não gera lembranças em campo, sumido demais. 🔴O ponto positivo fica por conta de Rafinha, que entrou muito bem. Espero que possa permanecer e ser importante tanto no meio num 442 ou pela ponta no 433, Rafinha tem um jogo muito parecido com Messi. Se associa muito bem, tem finalização e drible, puxando da ponta pro meio, e foi o melhor do time catalão. Carles Pérez entrou muito bem, e deu profundidade pelo lado esquerdo. 🔵Caras novas e problemas antigos, precisamos fechar a janela, esquecer Neymar, e olhar pro nosso futebol. Com os rivais tão reforçados, temos que ganhar todos os jogos possíveis, e em Bilbao, perdemos pra nós mesmos, jogamos muito mal. Ja vimos Ligas resolvidas por 1-2 pontos, e eu espero que não façam falta. 🔴Visca Barça!! #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #griezzman #messi #suarez #dembele #DeJong

▪️SEMEDO - Rating 8▪️It's hard to understand what happens in Valverde's head that makes him not climb Nelson in the first 11's. More athletic and fast, more secure with the ball and always showing depth and good association on the right side. A sensible evolution happens with Semedo and only our technician didn't see. And the Portuguese has been very professional because even with such evolution continues without creating confusion internally. In addition, it shows an unexpected connection with Dembélé when both are on the right. It is adapted and needs to play more. 🔵Veredict: MUST BE IN THE 11 FIRST NEXT SEASON _____________________________________________________________________ ▪️SERGI ROBERTO - Rating 7▪️ It wasn't bad during the season. However, it shows the same mistakes in defensive positioning of other years and doesn't have the necessary speed for some duels against fast wingers. It's expected of a Midfielder player who plays improvised on the Rightback. Sergi needs to step aside for Semedo and be re-placed in midfield. Offensively, despite his good association with others teammates, with Messi playing on the left, come from de side to inside, we need a player that goes to the corner, give depth and Roberto doesn't have this characteristic. 🔴Veredict: SUBSTITUTE IN THE MIDDLE barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #Semedo #SergiRoberto #rightback

I believe that when I wake up tomorrow morning, with a time zone delayed at 5 am in relation to Spain, Griezzman will already be Barcelona player. I do not consider French the best option, but Barcelona have poor management, and at that moment, after losing several promises, we have to bet on Antoine. I have the expectation that the coming of Griezzman make the hiring of Neymar unfeasible, because I already consider that the hiring of the French goes to sink the finances of Barca. And he has, like Neymar, the self-respect factor, as the French striker denied the club a year ago in the national network. Again, we do not stand above a player. On the pitch, I think it's an extremely positive contract. We are bringing a creative and resolute player. Griezzman has a huge ability to associate in short spaces and make long passes. He is inventive in his dribles, besides finding companions with differentiated passes. It gives many assists, it is easy to score goals and still has the versatility to appear in the middle and enter the small area as a surprise effect. My only doubt in the field is ... we spent 130 million with Dembélé for nothing? If not, will Suarez agree to go to the bank? The Frenchman comes to play, Messi is undisputed and in between, bordering on the insanity of thinking of Antoine there. The lamentation is finally over, a process of rejuvenation postponed another year. We have to hope that the Fortnite addict shows his best version in Barcelona. #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #griezzman #AG7 #antoine #antoinegriezzman #france #atleticodemadrid #Atleti

SEMIFINALS! ROAD TO MADRID. Satisfaction, pleasure, love, joy, adrenaline, happiness, relief... many feelings were drawn after this all-important victory at the Camp Nou. Thousands inside the stadium, millions out of the stadium, can celebrate again, after 3 years, who are in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League. With the biggest public of the season in world football, starring Barcelona and Manchester United, the quarterfinals with more "titles in the field." On the one hand, the Barcelona that needed to take a weight, 3 years without passing this phase, but that had more than 6 years of invincibility in his stadium, on the other, a Manchester trying another comeback, not having a brilliant cast, however with unimaginable willpower, winning 3 of the 4 games he has played away from home in the current season. The Barcelona came with a team similar to the first leg, the only change was Semedo by Sergi, which is common in Barcelona games, as it has a more offensive and more possession team. The opening 11 of Manchester, which comprised Young on the left, Lindelof on the right and without Lukaku in the attack, probably sought launching on the backs of the defenders because of a faster attack. In the first 5/10 minutes, the English team tried to score with high pressure and managed to be efficient, hitting the beam in the first seconds of the game and leaving the club blaugrana nervous because he could not overcome the midfield, but after that the moods were calming down and Barcelona entered the game. Until after passing through Young in a split, Messi eliminates Fred from the play with a sensational pen and after a long time, we see again to score in the quarterfinals of his preferred form, cutting and beating, De Gea even struggled, but the ball was perfectly placed in its right corner. Minutes after the first goal, Messi can again cut and hit, but this time to the right, but also had the help of De Gea who had a world cup flicker in this move. The first half was controlled after the two goals, the possession was completely dominated and the game remained calm, but the club continued behind goals. The continue in the comments.

We need to talk about Neymar. Even with the Griezzman's rumor, Neymar is the hottest subject in this Catalan transfer window. However, I am totally against Neymar's hiring. Firstly because we need a deep renewal, from the president to the coach and especially the players, who need to reduce our payroll, selling aged players who don't deliver so much on the pitch by now and earn a huge amount. Neymar at 27's and a giant salary doesn't fit those needs, and in 3 years we'd need a player with interesting future perspective to sub him. Then, if we analyze the disaster against Liverpool, we lacked besides other things, mainly intensity, especially in the defensive recovery, a function that Neymar never (now even less) played well. Ney won't come back to mark midfielders and fullbacks, and with MSN, we would have 3 players out of the defensive work. Another point is, if we notice that we need a RB, LB, CDM, LM and CF, spend 120-130M + 1 or 2 players, with Neymar makes no sense, even because we are increasingly targeted by FIFA Financial Fair Play. And the main reason is, Neymar didn't respect the club in which he most triumphed and that was idol. He left without revealing the truth for the club, crowd and teammates, said goodbye by social networks and still sued the club for not receiving a bonus from a 5-year contract signature having served only. All of this, for money and for more prestige (seriously, playing in PSG, really brings more prestige?). If the club doesn't respect itself seeking for a player who betrayed the institution, who will to respect us? We lost countless opportunities in the market, and with the amount that we will pay for Neymar, we could have brought 2-3 big names for the future. But Ney isn't the solution to our problems, he can even become one, and the big one. ____________________________________________________________________ #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #Neymar #neymarjr #NeymarJunior #Njr #njr11 #Ney #Brasil #Brazil

▪️BUSQUETS - Rating: 7▪️Hard to say if Sergio was guilty or a victim of his bad season. A player who has the face of La Masia, and suffers too much with the change of style of Barcelona every year. He plays with the mind, anticipating and having the game always designed previously, he has been exposed too much as 'pivote' this season, and it is more than proven that it isn't the same Busquets having to defend near to our defensive area. Running behind fast attackers and being left in the 1x1 against fast forwarders with open field is sure to have a disastrous finish. The team needs to change to make Busquets fundamental again, or it's another talent to be wasted. In addition, that season was bad, apparently to be exhausted physically and mentally. 🔴Verdict: MUST BE IN THE 11 FIRST IN THE COMING SEASON, BUT WITH QUALITY MCD TO SUPPRESS IT ________________________________________________________________ ▪️ALEÑÁ - Rating: 7▪️Maybe you're talking now, "he is being too strict on the boy." Maybe, but I don't understand Carles' lack of attitude during several games. A boy from La Masia, acclaimed by the crowd, very talented and with incredible potential, but who comes several times with an impetus of who has nothing to show. He needs to take on the responsibility of being a 'canterano' who climbs with great expectation to the main team, and show service. It seems often random to the game, as if it weren't important to him. On the other hand, Aleñá shows a lot of quality in ball driving, dribbling and a powerful finish. Can easily associate in short spaces and can execute very good passes in complicated situations. It will be much more charged next season, and he has a lot to give. 🔵Verdict: MUST BE IN THE FIRST TEAM, HAVING MANY CHANCES __________________________________________________________________ barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #Busquets #Alena #midfielder

▪️DEMBELE - Rating: 6▪️It was the last post to end this series. Dembélé was bad this season, and not because his performances. When he played, the Frenchman went well, very well. Very fast, with skilled witg both legs and an enviable verticality, Ousmanr eluded the fans. We all thought he could be protagonist, and finally, could help Messi take Barcelona to European glory. However, the young man was undisciplined at the time of his career where he should be more committed. Even having several injuries last season, continued without taking care of himself, and once again he gets injured hurt too much once again. Dembélé seems to be a player with a bright future but does not seem to have a backup that puts the player on the rails and he even seems to care little about his physical state. In my opinion, the player's attitude is as important as their performance, and those points are closely related. Dembélé needs to grow, mature or seeks space elsewhere. 🔴Verdict: I WOULD GIVE A LAST SEASON FOR THE PLAYER TO SHOW COMPROMISE, AND IN MY TIME, I WOULD BE IN THE 11ST INITIALS🔵 #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #dembele #ousmanedembele #leftwinger

▪️VIDAL - Rating: 9▪️Yes, this is it. Vidal deserves his only text. What a season by the chilean. He arrived in Barcelona declaring full commitment and then ended up staying on the bench more than he wanted. He did not think twice and expressed his dissatisfaction the way he could. He had a few opportunities and was gaining confidence alongside his teammates, but one thing he never stopped showing every second. Will. A true gladiator in the pitch, Vidal had the difficult task of with an atypical style of play at the club, to unseat the acclaimed Arthur. And the truth is...Vidal succeeded. We know who owns the position when we reach at the end of the season, and in the decisive matches of the Champions the elected was Vidal. Not just on our own merit, we have to be realistic. Arthur's lack of ideal conditioning for European football, was injured too much, and gave way for Arturo to enter and gives his heart when he had the chance. Vidal defend too much, appears in defense to facilitate the build up and transition, short and long passes of high quality, consistency in the middle, high and immediate pressure, passing between lines, arrival in attack and good finish. What does King Arthur don't do on the field? Hard to say. He arrived in doubt of what would yield, and today, is loved by the fans. He leaves everything on his own in the field, either in very hard splits or in every "cart". The only problem? Vidal should have taken the place of another...Rakitic. But Valverde has no power and confidence to impose the right decision. Also, there wouldn't be a disaster at Anfield if the other players were infected by Vidal's will. Long live to the king. 🔵 Veredict: I DO NOT KNOW WHAT VIDAL IS CAPABLE OFF, AND SINCERELY, THE OWN CHILEAN AND VALVERDE'S INSANE HEAD WILL DEFINE ITS DESTINY🔴 #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #arturovidal #Vidal #kingarturo #midfielder

▪️MESSI - Rating: 9▪️Not even Messi is infallible. Although our argentinian superstar, the best player in history, he also makes mistakes, and when it is Leo who commits them, of course the weight is bigger, and it is fair that it is. Messi couldn't try to dribble Matip in front of the goal at Anfield Road. And that single big mistake in the season, already leaves the club glimpsing a crisis and conturbs the whole season. The positive side of Messi? It was difficult to arrange adjectives, to cite something specific. Because of the immense passivity of the team and the dark season of Suarez and several injuries of Dembélé, Leo was alone in the attack, with all responsibility on him. And for a change, he was amazing, destroyed the season and was the best player in the world, again, since 2008. 🔵Veredict: 🐐 ______________________________________________________________________ ▪️MALCOM - Rating: 9▪️"Wow, how crazy he is, giving the same rate of Messi to Malcolm." Let's see...Malcom played miserable minutes and solved 2 games even without being rhythm. Of those games, one against Real, another against Tottenham in the Champions, both with very good performances. And they weren't surprising, because it's this type of presentation that is expected of the Brazilian, pulling from the side to the middle, associating well with Semedo and his overtakings. A player who doesn't play because he hasn't been asked by the coach, is out of summons and doesn't complain, presents himself very well even outside his position and alongside players who have no tune, doesn't create internal problems and maintains a good physique?! There's nothing to complain about Malcom. I'm just sorry he made the right choice with the wrong coach. I hope that his passage for Barça isn't over, but I believe that Valverde is uncompromising in his ideas, and most likely the Brazilian should leave. 🔴Veredict: I WOULD LIKE TO STAY IN THE CLUB AS A RESERVE AND PLAY (MUCH) MORE barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #messi #lionelmessi #leo #leomessi #goat #Malcom #rightwinger

▪️TER STEGEN - Rating 10▪️We don't have much to say about our first goalkeeper, he did what he could, even with a more fragile defense than last season. I remember very few mistakes of Marc, and if there is a relevant moment that we can question would be Wjinaldum's first goal ate Anfield, but it would be too cruel. At first it was a very quick infiltration and the defenders had failed to pay attention to the entrance of the player, except that the kick was strong and creepy. Stegen made a masterful season, made incredible matches mainly in the final phase of the Champions League and is undeniable, as well as wanted by the fans and adapted to the club and city. 🔵Veredict: FIRST TEAM INCONTESTABLE __________________________________________________________________ ▪️CILESSEN - Rating 9▪️His time in Barcelona has come to an end, the goalkeeper himself has expressed the desire to leave. However, he had a commendable attitude at that time, in which he only warmed up the bench and played sparse Cup games. I noticed Jasper less secure than last season, however, he has the level to be the starter for most of European teams. 🔴Veredict: SALE #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #terstegen #cillessen #Goalkeeper

It's true I haven't been writing for a few days. I lacked the time and especially the courage to continue writing. However, if one speaks in Spanish, "somos Barça en las buenas y en las malas". I promised to comment on the final of the Spanish Cup, a promise that I won't fulfill, because I don't think I need nor do we deserve more texts on games this season. Just for the record, it was a deplorable match, with an infamous football, as in all season. Our football was not only bad in this final stretch, being punished for the bad results. No. We played mediocre most of the games of the season, some were ridiculous, and in for real, we didn't have good results, but our rivals have been able to have an even worse season. We had 87 points, and I hope this does not surprise you, but it's a low score, worthy of the season of Tata Martino. I don't trust Valverde. I don't trust any more of our cast. PSG, Juve, Rome and Liverpool. This needs to be loud at Camp Nou, and our board needs to be restrained. Is it? I don't think so. Which makes me wail. The following texts will evaluate our cast and coach this season and will come with an opinion of what we would do with each one. Finally, I will comment on the possible signings and possibly the players who are already confirmed as reinforcements for 19-20. #barcelona #barcelonafc #fcbarcelona #campnou #messi #FCB #cules #blaugrana #suarez #Valverde

▪️PIQUÉ - Rating: 8▪️The second best defender of the season, behind only Van Djik. The beginning of the season signaled that our Presi was in a dark moment, pointing to a possible decay by age. But that's not what happened. After several foolish mistakes that earned us points early in the league, but recovered and formed with Lenglet an unexpectedly consistent double and with a significant improvement in the game over, both in attack and defense. 🔴Verdict: MUST BE IN THE FIRST 11's IN THE SEASON THAT COMES, BUT DISPUTING POSITION WITH A QUALITY LB (I HOPE IT'S LIGT) _____________________________________________________________________ ▪️LENGLET - Rating: 8▪️It was a pleasant surprise this season. If at first the fans were afraid of their ability, now the question is whether Umtiti manages to win the position back. Very good in the aerial ball, hard in the divided and precise in the passes. He committed some errors in anticipations, but extremely normal for the young age. We are very well supplied with left-backs. 🔵Verdict: MUST BE IN THE 11's FIRST IN THE SEASON THAT COMES, BUT DISPUTING POSITION _____________________________________________________________________ ▪️UMTITI - Rating: 6▪️Unfortunately there is little to be said about Big Sam in the field, played little due to severe meniscus injury. And it is about it the main point of analysis and what motivates the low note of the player. A lousy attitude to force conservative treatment in Qatar where the appointment was surgical, leaving the club in a delicate position. Currently we do not know the real state and severity of the injury, which can complicate the future of Umtiti in the club and even a possible sale. In the field, he was not physically 100% and there was a lack of rhythm in several aspects of his game. 🔴Verdict: IF NOT SOLD (DEPENDS A LOT OF YOUR INJURY) YOU WILL HAVE TO BRIGATE WITH LENGLET TO RETURN TO THE FIRST 11's ___________________________________________________ ⚠️Note: I have not forgotten Todibo, will be talked about him in the post about La Masia in the season barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #terstegen #cillessen #centerback

We were happy for the rotations and rest promoted by Valverde, but, the amateur match promoted by Huesca and Barcelona required a lot of patience to be watched by 90min. A 0-0 barren, which I was so disappointed to have watched. I will comment briefly on the less relevant (⚠️ON FIRST COMMENTARY) and more detailed about the ones that deserve the most highlights (positive and negative). ◾Todibo looks like the younger Varane. Tall, fast, hard and precise. Accurate pass and confidence, it seems that came from the base of Barca and has shown much service with the main team. It shows a confidence that comes to be strange. He has a great future. ◾Wague is a bullet, sometimes a bit hasty, but it reminds me a lot of Semedo when he arrived, erratic and compensating everything with speed and force. It is worth betting more on the boy. ◾Umtiti is improving gradually, lacks rhythm, fault of such a long injury. The truth is that Umtiti is at the mercy of the board of Barca and his indecipherable plans about the future of ours centerbacks. ◾Alenya needs to be called attention. His fickleness bothers me. Sometimes it plays as if he were consolidated, sloppy and unenthusiastic. As if the game did not interest him. He ought to be a leader for the canteranos in the field, and in fact, he didn't inspire anything. ◾Puig is a born talent, his little size helps in the fluidity of his movements and to escape markers. But it will be a left-interior at 433, which requires marking strength, and that worries me. The future of Puig, even overflowing technique, seems uncertain to me, after all, physical clash is something inherent in the game. What is not uncertain is your ability with the ball in the foot. A little genius. What a pass for Dembélé 🤯 ◾Dembele hasn't rhythm, he missed it too much and showed nothing of what we were getting used to, just the old anxiety about showing service, which was something he had overcome. It will be essential to improve for the Tuesday showdown, and I hope that it will be noticeably better by then. May our headlines show the opposite of yesterday against United in our home, and let's enjoy once again a Champions League semi-final. Visca Barça!🔵🔴

We broke Setien's scheme! Yes that's what you see, two posts in a day, but don't get used to it. From the day that Setien simply put down the unbeaten record of two years at the Camp Nou and broke a 20-year without defeating us in our stadium. Betis gave a football show using a great pressing and counter pressing and almost equalizing the ball possession in the beginning of the match. Because of these factors, this game became so epic and revenge-like. There was so many chances for both sides, and the first and clearest chances came from the Cuscos. Both teams filled the midfield for this match, Barcelona left the 4.3.3 on the side and came up the pitch on a 4.4.2 with Messi appearing several times in the middle to bring numerical advantage. But, Barcelona had difficulties to reach the attack and create good chances. When Leo scored the second, the Betis opened, mainly in the second half and lost momentum, in this way, Barça managed to score more goals. A very complicated game that only have one name who could change the scenario, Lionel Andrés Messi Cuciccinni. Used to destroy Sevilla, today it was proven that the problem was not the team but the city. Lionel put the match in his pocket. He was just perfect, hit almost everything he tried, having a better match than against Sevilla , being his best performance in recent months. Messi takes the first after a masterful foulkick, putting in the corner of the goalkeeper. In the second he receives a beautiful pass from Suarez (who also made a great match with a beautiful goal, but today the focus is Messi) and concludes perfectly. The third is after the Betis goal and has an air of "not today", he takes the rabbit out of the top hat and covers the goalkeeper with a 'Vaselina', with an excess os mastery, being the work of art of the match. To finish, Leo was applauded standing and revered by the fans, after all, well deserved. Thank you Leo! Is the problem in the beard? 🐐 Note: Barcelona had only 43.9% possession of the ball against Betis, Valverde clearly opted to adapt to the opponent. #FCB #fcbarcelona #blaugrana #barcelona #messi #goat #leomessi #betis #suarez #laliga #soccer

Alavés 0-2 Barça ▪️Strangely, the final matches of La Liga are on their way to Barcelona in a natural way. Alavés came in 4-5-1, very closed in the central zone, a real "park the bus", which greatly limited the more dangerous actions of Barca. The center of the opposing defense has long been our main gateway to the creation of goal chances, however, I believes that even Messi wouldn't change a lot yesterday's game, because the central zone was the scene of unrelenting duels on the part of the two times, no much space was given. ▪️Little creative on the part of the Catalan set, no great chance on the part of the Bascos. Stegen wasn't tested on the first half, and the goalkeeper's rival actually tested in two attempts, a ball stolen by Coutinho, passed to Suarez and a pass from Dembélé to Suárez. None of them were completed in the best way. ▪️At second half, a move on the center, with a pass of Sergi, and the backlight from Suarez, left Aleñá free to score. For me, the tune between them seemed so good that it seemed that Messi had the ball to score. Great goal. ▪️And in an air move, with a offside goal of the Barça, the judge marked penalty with the help of the VAR, that was badly struck by Pistolero, but entered. ▪️The game is lukewarm, with a lot of duel in the center of the field, little impetus of the two teams, that an Umtiti without rhythm didn't compromise. We nedd only one victory (or one defeat from Atleti) to make official our championship. Now, we have to focus on Champions League victory, time to think about Liverpool and over the weekend, we should spare our headlines. La Liga is ours once again!!! 🔵We color football🔴 ⚠️ Highlights on the first commentary ⚠️

Barcelona 3-0 Liverpool Two days late, I know, and first of all I apologize. But let's go to the most important...we can not be relaxed with this result. Why? The truth is that for those who expected a fickle Liverpool in terms of intensity, saw that the Klopp's team have no limit of resistance. Except for a few minutes they took to breathe, it was about 75 minutes of high blood pressure. We try to go out playing, keep possession, practice a horizontal game, retaining and passing the ball, but the Reds won't let us. And I say more, fortunately Keita was injured, because Liverpool lost mobility, and Henderson, who does not know how to close well the flank, moved Milner to the left, and in the 1-0, Hendo was slow to arrive in Alba. In the first half, Mané-Robertson and especially Salah made a really hell in the back of our Fullbacks, and Lenglet was very exposed with the ascents of Alba. Fortunately, Firmino was not on the pitch, and Piqué and Lenglet were able to work calmer in the back. Our goal was the result of a beautiful pass from Alba that put the ball where Luisito asked, the first goal of El Pistolero at UCL. In the second half Liverpool crumpled us, Stegen saved 4 balls, 2 of them, masterly defenses and Barca was suffocated. The changes of Valverde gave more consistency to the team, and Sergi could besides giving security to the right side making pair with Semedo, if well associated with Messi. And speaking of him...in his first goal, the luck that had left us in the past Champions returned to appear, and then, what we cant talk about his freekick? It is undoubtedly the season which Messi most carries the team in the back, incredible. Liverpool was superior, quite up to it. And we were surgical. Ideally, we should score 1 goal early in Anfield, because Klopp's side will go crazy. Ps .: What can we say about Arturo Vidal? A gladiator. And about the 2 goals lost by Dembélé .. I hope we don't miss it. Let's finish the job in the Beatles' city, we are rrady to color Europe!!🔵🔴

▪️JORDI ALBA - 9▪️The best left back of the season. I could only write that, though, there would be questioning about the fateful game of Anfield. The analysis here is horizontal, and Jordi had 2 very bad crucial games. In Anfield, he committed a lot of mistakes. I only put one goal entirely on your account, because in the other, Rakitic passes the ball in a pressure zone and Alba makes the wrong decision, not kicking the ball forward; and the Cup final, where he was visibly exhausted, losing in the race several times, which is unusual. Alba was brilliant, with goals and assists, in an increasingly close line with Messi, but he needs to rest to maintain the high level until the end of the season. It would be time, since Miranda under the command of Valverde won't have space, to hire a young talent, but we don't have enough money for that. I believe that Filipe Luís is the best choice in this way, to restore Alba and maintain a position dispute. Over a few defensive hesitations, the Alba we know, are accustomed to makes these mistakes. 🔵Veredict: MUST BE IN THE 11's FIRST IN THE COMING SEASON, BUT DISPUTING POSITION WITH A LB OF GOOD QUALITY🔴 #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #jordialba #Miranda #leftback

8 d'11! CAMPEONES! Due to unforeseen events it was not possible to post an analysis about the match, but enjoy our 26th La Liga! It is already the second La Liga since Valverde's arrival, the first almost unbeaten, the second with more defeats because the focus was UCL, but since the arrival of Ernesto, the team has only 3 losses in 73 matches in the league, one made awesome. The Spanish coach still managed to have a Piqué in the highest level playing alongside Lenglet, Semedo and Sergi by the right managed to perform their role, since Alba since the beginning of the season 17/18 has been important and influential with his assists. All those protected by the wall Ter Stegen. The media had this season with the newcomers in the club Vidal and Arthur, which has different characteristics, but were extremely important pro titles. In attack the best of Leo that took us to the apex. As it is written in the stadium, we are more than a club, we are a family. We Color The League, but now we are ready to color Europe. We are waiting for you Liverpool! La Liga: Ok Copa del Rey: Loading... UCL: Loading...

Barcelona 3x1 Rayo In a match before the UEFA Champions League, Valverde was expected to save much of the team, but he only spared 3: Rakitic, Dembele and Lenglet. Already Messi and Suarez, both above 30 years, playing the 90 minutes of the match. The game begins with Barcelona facing difficulties to infiltrate the line of 5 players of the team of Rayo, which precludes the infiltration of Jordi Alba, making Barcelona difficult in the offensive sector. The first chance of goal comes when Phil disarms a player and after that Messi leaves the Blaugrana's 7th, face to face with the goalkeeper, but ends badly. In the next move, De Tomás manages to score after Vidal's error. Leo, who wasn't well, managed to find Pique in the area, which didn't waste. End of the first half. In the second half Valverde opts to replace Arthur for Dembélé, changing from 4.3.3 to 4.2.3.1 with Messi inside and Coutinho and Dembélé from the sides, a much more offensive team. Around 50 minutes of the match, Semedo dribbles a defender who commits a penalty, charged by Messi with pure elegance in the left corner of the goalkeeper. Coutinho was replaced by Rakitic, making back to 4.3.3, now with Dembélé in the left, in a few minutes the Croatian table with Suarez after the Dembélé pass, generating the third goal. Malcom still enters in the 85 minutes in place of Busi, but doesn't participated too much. Highlights: •Vidal made a great game, being the player of Barcelona with more ball possession, more passes, more disarms and more defeated air disputes, besides obtaining 95.7% in accuracy in the passes. •Dembélé as always proved essential to the team, being again an aggressive and fast player, evolving game after game. •Messi was more "lazy" in this match, probably because he did not want to wear out for the UCL game, but still managed 1 goal and 1 assist. •Rakitic and Suarez were also very participative in the game, Ivan with an assist and Uruguayan with 1 goal. •Maybe the negative point of the match again was Coutinho, who didn't suck, but doesn't look like he'll regain his football from Liverpool times. Visca Barça! We Color football. #blaugrana #barcelona #FCB #coutinho #messi

▪️COUTINHO - Rating: 6▪️This post should contain both Coutinho and Dembélé, because it just left to talk about Right Wingers. However, I think we need to talk a bit more about each one situation. The Brazilian arrived in Barcelona to supply the imminent departure of Iniesta. And at the time, even Phillipe's best in the club, Barça played in a 4-4-2 with Busi and Raki making a double 'pivote', Coutinho would occupy the LM position when Iniesta wasn't in the field. In this function, in this formation, the defensive responsabilities of the midfielders are reasonably reduced, because having 2 CDMs the containment occurs more efficiently than in the 4-3-3. For me, a serious error was committed in this respect, because there was a fervent acclamation for the return of the consecrated 4-3-3 and thus, the function of 'left interior' in Barcelona requires: 1)Dribbling, creation, improvisation and 2)marking and combat in the middle. If we look at Coutinho, it is clear that physically he hasn't condition for body disputes. "But Iniesta wasn't strong!" However, Don André was smarter to close spaces and had much more ability to protect the ball with his technique. Playing as a winger, Coutinho showed what is capable of...buried his football even deeper. He couldn't break marking lines because he lacked speed, didn't kick from outside the box because he didn't come from behind, and his creative ability when restricted to the left tip was sluggish. Confidence was destroyed and Coutinho showed no will/ability to reverse his situation. The season was bad but the desperation to hire a player without proper analysis of the ability to perform a function and pay an exorbitant amount like 160M isn't the fault of the player. Coutinho's fault lies in not being able to reinvent himself to get better, and allow the psychological to affect his performance more and more. However, the main guilty of this huge disaster, unfortunately, is Barcelona. 🔴Verdict: I DON'T SEE A FUNCTION FOR COUTINHO IN THE CLUB, AND WITH A WORLDWIDE TOP10 SALARY, I'D SELL HIM🔵 #barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #coutinho #phillipecoutinho #leftwinger

ROAD TO MADRID! BARÇA 5X1 LYON. A match that is even difficult to analyze tactically because of the emotion that was involved. A tense game wich despite the thrashing was not easy as it appears. Barcelona was lineuped with Sergi Roberto as Valverde's option, and Coutinho because Dembélé wasn't feel comfortable from his injury. A good offensive team to make goals on the Lyon, who came to Catalonia with a defensive and compact lineup, a 5-3-2 wich became a 5-4-1 in a defensive phase. Barcelona was in possession in the most of the time and manages to make their first goal in a penalty, another panenka kicked by Lionel. Still in the first half Arthur leaves Suarez in a condition to score the goal and leave the drought, but he chooses to assist Coutinho who was better positioned to score the goal. A first half without great scares to Barcelona because of the defensive game of the French team. Unlike what happened in the first half, Lyon came back with a different proposes because they needed to score 2 goals to qualify. They made constant high pressure and started to reduce the difference of possession of the ball. After a corner kick, the ball is left over and Lyon achieves their goal. The most tense moment of the match was after that goal, bringing in memory, the game against Roma where everything that was done against a weaker team was trashed. But Leo did not let it happen. After taking 2 players out and kicked with his right foot, we had to see the ball slowly enter on the goal to complete his masterpiece. Barcelona still made two goals with two assists from Messi, one by Piqué and another from Dembélé. Now qualified for the quarterfinals, Barcelona can catch every team. There aren't restrictions. Highlights:-Messi simply destroyed the match, we saw a great performance of La Pulga that represents his importance to Barcelona and show that who is the best player in the world. -Arthur despite not completing the match was very important, participating in the Coutinho's goal and losing only one ball in the match. -Ousmane despite playing vey well, left the field feeling pain and was announced that will be around a month off. Be strong Dembouz! Visca Barça!

A la Madrileña.. ◾A difficult game to analyze, because in most of the game neither Barca nor United have played in their game models. What was expected of Barcelona was that it could dominate the game and create several chances, with United waiting, closing the area well, especially for the central range and coming out in quick transitions. And for 25min that's what happened. At 12 minutes Barça managed to score through the diversion against Luke Shaw in a header by Suarez and managed to stay in control for a few more minutes. After that, what was seen were the Reds grow in the game, and sometimes felt that their possession would be greater than ours, however, although without effectiveness, we had more durable possessions. ◾If on the one hand we scared little, on the other hand we were very efficient defensively against our weakest point, which is the run in the backs of our sides and defenders. With a very attentive Stegen and a simply irreproachable Piqué, Barça showed that they learned from the mistakes of the past seasons, being surgery in a match away from home. Lukaku did little, Rashford was erratic and on the side of Manchester the highlight is because of McTomminay and Fred who controlled well the circulation of the ball, managing to keep United close to the Barça area. The Red Devils did not even demand a defense from Marc, since De Gea was tested three times. In the last minutes, it seemed like a silly ball, we spent more than 2 minutes with the ball without any players coming close to stealing, the rebound was clear when we put them on the wheel. ◾Our goal was to score away from home, because at Camp Nou we are very strong. We hit the target successfully. We've already cleared the taboo to score away from home, now it's time for Messi to drop his own taboo without scoring in the quarterfinals and show why he came. Let's show United what we are capable of. 🔵Visca the Barca !!🔴 ⚠️Highlights on first commentary⚠️ #FCB #fcbarcelona #ChampionsLeague #champions #cule #blaugrana #suarez #messi #pistolero #barcavsunited

As requested by followers, semedo is our subject of the day. 30 million euros + 5 million every 50 official matches for Barça. These were the numbers paid by our number 2. An amount of money that is expected to pay for a starting right back, especially for the farewell of Dani Alves. Now 25, he was expected to have assumed the holder on the right side of the defense, however, an inexplicable insistence on Sergi Roberto still keeps Semedo with a partial adaptation to the game of the team, and the team to him, of course. Let's analyze the right side of Barcelona ... we have in our the gala 11th, Messi the front and Rakitic in the middle. Ivan plays the role that is expected of an interior in our 4-3-3, so, the important point is to understand how Messi works. Messi is a mediapunta player, who tends to receive the ball inside or when it is more open, receives and enters the field in a diagonal towards the goal. Being Sergi a origin midfielders, he has the same tendency when he receives the ball. Staying open and giving depth to the plays is an unnatural movement, different from Nelsinho, who seeks more quietly the bottom line and gives more breadth to the team. Individually, Semedo is faster than Sergi, which allows him to recover better and in cases of loss in the 1x1 duels, recovering in the race. Offensively, as said above, has an important characteristic to Barcelona, ​​which currently attacks almost always by the left, because a lack of support on the right. The choices by Sergi in some rare games may even be understood, but nothing else explains Semedo in the bank for number 20, only the already known "Friends Club" or that crazy clause that makes Barca pay 1/6 of its value to every 50 games. In addition, the partnership with Dembele proved to be in tune, and in a future without Messi, with Demb on the right, the days of Sergi Robeto on the right flank need to be counted. #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #Semedo #nelsonsemedo #campnou #cule #blaugrana #azulgrena #eternalcule #rightback #SergiRoberto #Sergi #messi #rakitic #rightside

Barcelona 2x1 Real Sociedad This Saturday before Easter, Barcelona faced Real Sociedad in the Camp Nou, the Blaugrana Club won the match by 2x1. With the victory the club Blaugrana is to 6 points of the title missing 5 matches. Barcelona's Starting x11: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, Lenglet, Alba, Rakitic, Vidal, Arthur, Messi, Suarez, Dembélé. Real Sociedad's Starting x11: Rulli, Zaldua, Elustondo, Llorente, Muñoz, Merino, Zubeldia, Pardo, Oyarzabal, Jose, Juanmi. The Match: Barcelona played with more spaced lines due to the presence of Vidal and Dembélé, in addition to the absence of Sergio Busquets, having a rather vertical game because of this and the high pressure that Real Sociedad imposed during the match. The Blaugrana players looked fatigued because of the midweek game and seemed to save on the pitch, so it wasn't a brilliant match despite the win. Real Sociedad played very well and took advantage of the fatigue of the opponent, but after scoring his goal and tie the match, took a goal minutes later and couldn't be more efficient. Goals: Lenglet 46', Juanmi 62' and Alba 64'. Highlights: - Dembélé made a regular start and seems to be recovering pace of play gradually, still managed to assist Lenglet goal, are already 8 in the season. - Lenglet was the MOTM, has a very good season and made his second goal in the Blaugrana shirt, the two with the assistance if Dembélé. - Alba was very participatory throughout the match and scored a stunning goal with his right leg.

▪️It's not a "simple" Champions semifinals, not just the five-time European champions. A encounter of a Spanish champion and a 2nd in Premier League. It will be a battle of styles, even though the greatest current exponent of Cruyffista football is Ajax, is an epic battle between a team of full intensity and pressure throughout the game and another who maintains possession of the ball, turns to and fro trying to open the rival defense, based on dutch style. ▪️It's the battle between the best defender and the best attacker. Between the non-dribbled and the biggest dribbler. But it won't be attack against defense, because even when defending, Liverpool is attacking. Maybe he attacks more defending than when he is in fact with the ball. ▪️It's in this last point that we must pay attention. Liverpool's high pressure will be the main trick that Klopp will use against the Catalan team. They will try to press mainly Busquets in my opinion. Not only because Busi is not in his best form, but because he's the player who receives the ball more isolated, facing the goal, and in case he loses the ball, we will be more vulnerable than anywhere else. Another industry who can succeed is in the middle, however, I believe that Vidal should start the game, as primarily in the first time, the physical confrontations will be the base of the game. ▪️On the Blaugrana side, I believe our left side will be the gold mine. Not just for Alba's fiery starts, but for defensive deficiency on the Reds' right flank. Arnold + Matip are a pair that makes mistakes in the defensive positioning, even more if we persevere in Robertson + VVD by the left. For Messi to shine, Suarez will have to work hard on the dutchman, so he can not be totally dedicated to beating our star. Klopp provoked the Camp Nou and the fans will respond with a mosaic reminding who we are. Hendo provoked the best in the world, I hope our team helps Messi to show that the englishs made a serious mistake to provoke 'La Pulga' . Let's Color Europe Again !!! 🔵🔴 ⚠️My Lineup in first commentary⚠️

Perspective I'll focus on the casting renewal. More specifically De Jong, Arthur, De Ligt and Jovic. Two of them are suppositions, but the best scenario for Barcelona goes through these names. - About Arthur there is not much to talk about, our Brazilian Xavi has justified his hiring, being titular in the first year of club. He brings more possession, roll the ball around the pitch, is safe with the ball, always choosing the best option of pass, besides contributing a lot in the high pressure. Even with Busi and Rakitic, someone was missing to hide the ball near the attack, and let it perfectly in the feet of our attackers. - De Jong has everything to take Iniesta post, although the hope is that he can play as a 'pivote'. In addition to retaining the ball with extreme class, he has driving, dribbling and differentiated passes skills as main characteristics, something that Don Andrés left lacking since his departure. Much more creative and inventive Midfielder than Arthur, Frenkie has classic features of our left interiors. - De Ligt will probably be the best defender of the next years (if Van Djik allows), there isn't much to talk about him, he comes to replace Piqué. He could lose a little weight to gain more mobility and agility, but he'll be a key to success in the coming years. - Jovic is the most uncertain hiring. The dispute for him will be huge. He works in and out of the area, is well-connected with the Midfielders coming from behind and opens well in the wide areas. He plays like Firmino. He wins balls at the top and has a respectable pivot. It finishes well with both legs and also of head, just missing a good kick from outside the box. However, for what is expected of a Blaugrana striker, it's undoubtedly the best option, being even very young, only 21. -But what scares me the most is what Valverde will do with so many talents from the 'Cruyffista' line. It is not characteristic of their teams, and although many think that he gives more possession e positional play than Lucho, I believe that it comes much more from the characteristics of the players than something actually architectted by the coach. But our coach deserves his own post. Just wait.

"One of the most underrated players ... there is a lot of talk about the big names, for me Rakitic is one of them. He is simple in possession, and does a defensive work on the right side to compensate Messi, he runs miles... However, he needs to improve his social networks, he is not good at it, but he is very good in the pitch "- José Mourinho We need to talk about Rakitic. Many compares the midfielder with his version under the command of Lucho, however, many things have changed since there. One of them... Messi stopped helping defensively. To Rakitic, was given the responsibility of basically running for him and Messi in the defensive phase. In a 4-3-3 where the right winger does not return, is demanded for the Croatian to work for him and for 'La Pulga'. This removed some of Raki's offensive brightness, however, he continues alongside Busquets constructing our game and 'sacando la pelota jugada', a trademark of the Catalan team. If now, we no longer see his infiltrations and arrivals as frequent as in other times, now we see the midfielder making more and more attack-defense balance, another function which he becomes more specialist every day. We could see this in the last El Clasico, where he along with Sergi Roberto (who seemed a wrong choice to hold Vinícius), managed to neutralize the Madrid weapon. He was not late for the re-set, he did not allow 2x1 situations on top of our RB, and the icing on the cake, Ivan showed pure quality, proving that his old version will still be there when needed. An almost invisible infiltration through the half-space and a manual panenka. 'CRak-tic' will be there for Barca, the shirt fell too well and the declarations of love to the club and desire of permanence are said frequently. He is very important to Valverde, and the coach doesn't hide it. Contrary to what many think, for De Jong, he won't be a hindrance, in fact, Ivan will be a kind of mentor. Although Frenkie is expected to take Busquets' place, it is possible that the Dutch midfielder is discovered as Rakitic's successor. Do not be surprised. Long life to Rakitic, who next to Busi, are the double less media and much soccer played in the Blaugrana club.

Pre-game analysis! Manchester United VS FC Barcelona. One of the most exciting clashes of the century, United vs Barcelona is among the biggest classics among teams from different countries, marked by football legends like: Ferguson, Guardiola, Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Rooney, Eto'o, Scholes, Xavi and many others who were present in this confrontation. Manchester has already won a final at the Nou Camp in 99, eliminated them in the semi-final of 2008 with an anthology goal of Scholes, however we are not behind because at the Olympic Stadium in Rome, in a 2x0 with goals from Eto'o and Messi , we won our third UCL and 2 years later, we won the fourth playing the heyday of Guardiola football. Teams that play different from the last clash, but the tradition continues. A game of attack against defense is expected, with Barcelona with the ball throughout the match and United Seeking the goal in a chance, because while Valverde opted for Coutinho instead of Vidal, it is clear that search for goals and chances created, already Solskjær goes with a very conservative scale, being able to vary between 4.3.3, 4.4.2 or until 5.3.2 depending on the moment of departure. A game to end the curse of the quarterfinals, a game for Messi to score again in this phase, attack against defense! Visca Barça! Barcelona Starting XI: Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, Lenglet, Alba, Rakitic, Busquets, Arthur, Messi (C), Suarez and Coutinho. United Starting XI: De Gea, Dalot, Young (C), Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Rashford and Lukaku. #FCB #fcbarcelona #barcelona #manunited #OldTrafford #pogba #messi #UCL #ChampionsLeague #viscabarca #manchester #quarterfinals

▪️RAKITIC - Rating: 6▪️Your level has dropped too much. Valverde makes him play 90min, several games. Rakitic had been the player most used last season and the few times that was spared in that, wasn't enough. Rakitic still does a very good attack/defense balance, however, less and less help in building up plays. Little slope in front, fewer infiltrates. It is no longer possible to have a player with only the function is manage the possession without creative intention, and in this sense, Ivan lives with flashes, sorry about saying that. A high salary and an even bigger ego, above 30 years and with promising players waiting for the vacancy in the position. It was time to say goodbye to Raki, but that's not the reality with Valverde in charge. His rating falls further after the recent overbearing statements. The cast needs to be dismissed from the leadership of the club and Raki is one of that need to leave. 🔴Verdict: SHOULD BE SOLD, BUT WITH THE PERMANENCE OF VALVERDE, THE REALITY WILL BE ANOTHER ________________________________________________ ▪️ARTHUR - Rating: 7▪️It seemed like a perfect debut season for Arthur. But then trouble began. Several injuries. Recovery. And then the Brazilian decides to travel to a Neymar's birthday, get back, gets hurt again. A demonstration that he needs guidance, or he can get lost. Basically can't play 90min, and ended the season hovering over news of overweight. This shows lack of sports/athlete mentality. The midfielder has everything to triumph in the team, the ball does not burn ate his feet, and he keeps possession as no other one nowadays. Perfect for the club, if you understand what it takes to shine in today's demanding football. In addition, it needs to contribute more to the attack, just manage the possession also isn't enough to be in Barcelona's 11, ​​or at least, it shouldn't be. 🔵Verdict: MUST BE IN THE 11ST FIRST BUT NEEDED TO BE CHARGED AND TO BE MORE CHARGED barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #Busquets #Alena #midfielder

▪️SUAREZ - Rating: 7▪️Suarez's season as a whole wasn't bad. Luisito's problem is that when he arrives at the most important moment, he may not appear. Or it may appear, as against Real Madrid, however, since 2015 without scoring a goal away from home in Champions League makes confidence in him decrease. Clearly out of weight, and playing with an incipient injury, his performance level has dropped too much. Suarez needs a replacement, and someone who can occupy that position for several years. Our best options were lost to Milan (Piatek) and now Real (Jovic), the board didn't act so wisely. Now we have to take Suarez back with Messi as center forward, hire someone very expensive (Kane, Rashford,) or a player that does not solve the problem (Llorente, Maxi Gomez). Non of the three options appeals to me, but our board idea of ​​hiring stars without thinking about the real function in the club (Coutinho as MCE? Or LW?) left us with tight accounts. Suárez needs to get worse and with the performance falling every season, it's time for El Pistolero to give up at least 50% of the minutes. Will happen? We know that's not gonna happen. 🔴Verdict: SHOULD SHARE 50% OF THE MINUTES OF THE SEASON WITH A PROMISSORY RESERVE🔵 barcelonafc #barcelona #FCB #fcbarcelona #barca #cules #cule #azulgrena #blaugrana #bcn #suarez #Luissuarez #centerforward
