It’s not going well at FC Barcelona
FC Barcelona will remain unbeaten at home this season, but Zidane’s side can still not shine. At Camp Nou, Barca continued to play with uncertainty and did not appear to be able to win the Spanish championship. Too many construction sites, which Zinedine Zidane should fix as quickly as possible, otherwise it will become uncomfortable in Barcelona.
The fact that Marc-André ter Stegen, who has been playing in world championship form for some time, made a goalkeeper mistake completes the chaotic picture of Barcelona. Lionel Messi is also not making any progress in his health and had to leave the pitch for a break with calf problems.
Unbeaten in Camp Nou
At home, Barcelona remains a power, but it is beginning to crumble. FC Villarreal was sent home with a 2-1 win. Barcelona was at least able to ease their embarrassing 2-0 defeat to Granade. But the astonished spectators continued to see a team looking for the right path. The media in Spain were full of mockery of the team’s desperate performance against Granada, and they wanted to do better today.
What about reparations in Barcelona?
Ernesto Valverde was anxious not to allow any further disgrace and brought the newly elected world footballer Messi into the starting line-up. Together with Suarez and Griezmann, perhaps the world’s best storm trio stood on the pitch. The line-up should be worth it because it was already in the 6 minutes 1-0. Messi’s cross from the outline to Griezmann and the head humorlessly took the lead. And it was even better for Barcelona. Arthur took the ball in the 15 minutes from about 20 meters and hit the goal with full force. The ball landed unbearably precisely under the bar, and it was already 2:0 — a goal of the brand world-class.
Is there a disaster for Villarreal?
Anyone who thought that the guys from Valverde would now burn down a firework was mistaken. Barca could hardly be seen offensively and strengthened the defensive efforts. Villarreal took advantage of the passivity of the hosts at the end of the first half and Cazorla scored the following goal. Ter Stegen didn’t look good in the 44 minutes from 20 metres. He had not calculated the trajectory of the ball correctly and had to take the connecting goal on his own. They will have heard it in Munich.
In the end, Barcelona held the lead, but could not radiate any further danger and will have to increase further.
