Ronald Koeman’s FC Barcelona is going through an obvious sporting crisis. They have only won one of the last six games played and have two particularly alarming consecutive defeats: 3-0 against Benfica in the Champions League and 2-0 against Atlético de Madrid in LaLiga. The win against Levante was the only positive news for a stagnant, vulnerable and apathetic team.
The Catalans, who are in ninth position in LaLiga and fourth in the Champions League, are experiencing a delicate situation. In the framework of an unprecedented economic crisis and the departure of the best player in history, Leo Messi, the Catalan team has become an unsound and emotionally weak team. He has only added three goals in the last six games and has conceded nine goals.
The return of Ansu Fati and the consolidation of players such as Gavi, Nico or Demir in the first team dynamics are the only positive news at Can Barça, where the continuity of Ronald Koeman is especially the order of the day.. The Dutchman does not convince the fans, but he has the support of the sports management to stay ahead of the team and turn the situation around.
Dembélé, Agüero, Pedri and Alba, after the break
The second stoppage for national teams has come at the best possible moment for the Catalans. The team will have two weeks to exercise and forget about the bad feelings in the last two weeks. In addition, the Dutch coach will be able to recover several important players for the last stage of 2021: Dembélé, Agüero, Pedri and Jordi Alba will be, a priori, available to compete.
He has also recently recovered Ansu Fati, which was exhibited in his first game with 15 stellar minutes and a high quality goal for the culé ideology. He did not have a special role against Benfica or Atlético de Madrid, where he played 22 and 26 minutes, respectively. The new number 10 of the team is, without a doubt, the great Barça hope in this fateful season 2021/22.
