Ronald Koeman’s FC Barcelona drew again on his visit to the Nuevo Mirandilla: despite the fact that the two teams had some chances and the final stretch was able to tip the balance, the electronic did not move in the 90 minutes. After the departure of Leo Messi, Griezmann and Trincao, in addition to the losses of Fati, Agüero, Dembelé and Braitwaite, the team has a minimal scoring background.
The Catalans, who are once again in the spotlight after their third consecutive game without winning, they add eight goals in the first five LaLiga days, a record so low that it had not been seen since the 2003/04 season, when they only scored five. In fact, Koeman’s men have only scored one goal in their last three official games.

The team again showed deficiencies in the game and had a version that could be improved in many aspects. With the Dutch coach, Ronald Koeman, at the center of the hurricane, the Catalans scored points again and are now seven from the lead (with a game pending). With an unprecedented economic crisis and also a sports crisis after the departure of Leo Messi, the future is more than uncertain.
Depay and Braithwaite, the only scorers
The eight goals of Barcelona have their own names: only Memphis Depay and Martin Braithwaite, with two goals each, have seen the goal of the offensive zone at this start of the season. Gerard Piqué, Ronald Araujo and Sergi Roberto (2) share the other four, making clear the lack of effectiveness of the Barça referents.
In the absence of recovering Ansu Fati in the coming days, the list of casualties in the offensive zone is still considerable: Agüero, Dembelé and Braithwaite are still out of group dynamics and the waiting time remains relatively long.. Ronald Koeman only has Memphis Depay and Luuk De Jong at his disposal as purely attacking players.
