FC BarcelonaTOWe analyze all the weapons of the Valverde team
LIn the absence of Leo Messi has been settled, so far, with a comfortable victory before theInter de Milnin Champions, a landslide of note inthe Classicand asurvival exercise in Vallecas. Three difficult challenges, three hands won with a good dose of maturity, hit and ask in Vallecas, with a touch of luck.
It has been spoken of 'Messidependencia' until the satiety. The media say it, the fans in their bar gatherings and even Valverde himself has recognized it on occasion. However, the claim of the azulgrana squad in his absence could not sound with greater force. The Bara is not only Messi, it is clear from now on. But what else does this equipment have?
The best '9' in the world
As long as it is not proved otherwise. Luis Surez fulfills years, like everyone else, and his performance will be reduced. It is the law of life. But the Uruguayan is a natural competitor and the goals fall from his pockets. That allows that in days like the one of Madrid or the Ray, the charra exerts like what it is: the best Barça trick after Messi and a forward like the glass of a pine.
The higher level Spanish left side
No matter how hard it getsLuis Enrique In dodging it in its calls, Jordi Alba is still the best left back in Spain. In Vallecas I returned to give a recital, being a constant offensive reference, assistant in the first goal, and of the most potable in defense. Few sides have as much impact on the game as l.
Goal from the bench
Messi was injured and entered Rafinha, scorer against Inter. The same happened with Vidal in the Classic. In Vallecas he played Dembl. Does anyone remember how many goals scored the Bara's reserves last season? The improvement in alternatives in attack is more than evident. And that's a fundamental plus in games that go uphill like Rayo.
A team with character
Only then can you lose a game in the 86th minute and continue believing in the comeback. The decision of Piqu to go up to the desperate, the insistence of Surez in each ball, the blood fra of Busquets and the temperament of Jordi Alba. This Bara is anything but indolent. Not even in Legans did he stop trying until the last breath.
The valenta of Valverde
It was something that was criticized to the 'Txingurri' hard in the last debacle in Rome. His immobility sometimes seemed to weigh down Bara's options. The Barca technician is cutting less and less changes and that shows. Dembl was a quick solution and give entry to Munir for Coutinho, no matter how bad the Brazilian was, denotes a courage rarely seen before in Valverde.
