FC Barcelona Defensive mistakes have condemned the team all season
Sand there is something that characterizes the Only of Koeman, are your defensive problems. The team has been changing things, improving aspects in attack, in the distribution of footballers on the pitch, but it has not stopped dragging deficiencies in the rear.
During the winter market, there was talk of the convenience of signing a central defender to reinforce that area of the field for the second half of the championship. Eric Garca He was the best placed, but the candidates did not finish giving the go-ahead to Carles Tusquets and there was no hiring.
The penalty committed by Clment Lenglet on Rubn Sobrino in the last league match he comes to complete a gallery of horrors that has marked the Barcelona season. Failures that have cost points, which have prevented the Catalans from taking the jack to the water.
Clment Lenglet commits an avoidable penalty on Sergio Ramos, who he grabs inside the Barcelona area. Starts on Way of the cross of the French, who does not give foot with ball this course.
Party that came out with a surprising Barça defeat. Cdiz’s second goal came as a result of a series of failures involving Jordi Alba, who passed the ball back in an out-of-band in favor of Bara, Clment Lenglet, who failed to divert it, and Ter Stegen, who frustrated at being beaten by a ball that he cannot catch with his hands.
The defense who signed one day to forget in one of the most important games of the year. There he lost the leadership of the group in the Champions League. Lenglet was especially bad that day, with defensive problems, kicking the ball … and a penalty for an absurd hand inside the area.
Riojan’s goal in the 31st minute of Mendizorroza came after a serious lack of understanding between Gerard Piqu and Neto. Central and goalkeeper did not understand each other in a transfer that, a priori, does not reveal any complications. But the Alavs attacker surprised, with good pressure, the Brazilian goalkeeper stealing the ball when he tried to play with his feet.
In the Wanda Metropolitano, the Catalan central defender again made a mistake, a loss of the ball in the center of the field, which exposed Ter Stegen, who had left the goal to look for the ball almost in the midfield. Carrasco scored on an empty door.
An error by Umtiti in the exit of the ball, inside the area, led to one of the goals of the Andalusian team.
This time it was Samuel Umtiti who had a day to forget. The French badly covers Kound in the first goal from Sevilla and breaks the offside in the second, being badly placed.
