After falling against Levante at the Ciutat de Valencia in LaLiga, Barcelona was stuck in the Camp Nou in the Champions league. The set of Ernesto Valverde was suffering from visitor (not scored in five of the eight displacements), and now being stuck in your house. The Slavia Prague frightened at Barça for 15 days in their stadium and this Tuesday we took a point from Barcelona. “The results do not accompany in the last few games and in Can Barça, the requirement is at maximum and you always want more,” said Pique. A similar analysis he made his companion in the rear, Lenglet: “We are in a difficult time, with less quality in the game, with less success in the game and with less ease to get the ball, but the season is long”.
“we Were losing and today has not been a party round. This generates frustration. Not we have been successful in our opportunities,” analyzed Valverde. The club finished off 14 times (six-to-door) for the four (none between the three poles) of the Slavia. “Despite the fact that there were situations clear, generated the feeling of danger in each against,” continued the coach azulgrana. The fans lost patience with the team Txingurri.
“Ask for patience”
The whistles were timid at the end of the first part, more intense when it was consummated by the tie. “It is good that people demand,” said Valverde. “The fans have the right to express how they feel. Let’s try to do things well, sometimes it works, other does not”, added Lenglet.
The club will not be left without mark in an official match since February of 2018 against Getafe. Before the Slavia, 48 duels later, turned to be zero. Without Luis Suárez, injured, Valverde opted for a different system before the Slavia: 4-2-3-1. “We had many problems in Prague with his midfielder and we anticipated that they were going to try to get the ball played. For this reason, plus the absence of Luis, was so that we change the system. But the Slavia has drawn the line very high up, and the solution was to play the space because it kept many players on the same line. We lacked a player to be able to reach. If Griezmann or Dembélé would have broken that line would have been able to get hand-in-hand with their goalkeeper,” explained Valverde.
The problem is that Griezmann has only attempted two shots in the last five games, and after you stay out of the call before the Lift, Dembélé has returned to the eleven, but not finished the game. In its place came Ansu Fati, more partner of Messi. The squad in 25 minutes on the field were found with the 10 on five occasions by the four that came with Griezmann. “The only thing that counts is to win always and if it is coiling better, because it is never enough,” said Valverde.
Pique recalled the past. “With Luis Enrique seemed to be that we do not operate well in the first six months and we won the treble. I would ask for a little patience, I know that people are asking for more, but the team is working hard to find solutions,” said central. And closed Valverde: “In football everything happens very quickly. We had a six-game winning streak and now in three days we went in a pothole. If in three days it comes, three can leave.”
