Act. a las 20:19


The FC Barcelona does not happen of the tie in front of the Elche in the halftime although Trincao has had a couple of good chances to open the bookmark. The Portuguese has not been able to overcome the goal Edgar Badía in both.

The Blaugrana team has controlled the game without too many problems, although Elche had two counterattacks as soon as they started and in the final stretch that they failed to take advantage of. Ter Stegen only had to intervene in a shot by Pere Milla in the final stage. Barcelona’s game is proving too predictable.


Barcelona vs. Elche LIVE: De Jong and Alba lost 1-0 and drove Ronald Koeman out of their boxes | VIDEO | FOOTBALL-INTERNATIONAL

Frenkie de Jong and Jordi Alba lost the Barcelona’s first goal against Elche within the date 1 of LaLiga Santander at the Camp Nou. After the first half hour of play, the Dutchman received a great cross from Lionel Messi, but the header went straight to the body of the rival goalkeeper.

On the second play, Alba’s luck did not change. The shot went far from Elche’s goal, causing coach Ronald Koeman a great disappointment on the bench. Fortunately, the Barça team found it 1-0 in the second half thanks to Lionel Messi.

Barcelona vs. Elche: the preview

Almost out of the Champions League and the Copa del Rey, Barcelona (4th with 47 points) will have a tough test in their goal to get closer to the leader of the Spanish league, Atlético de Madrid, when they host Elche (18th with 21 units).

Barcelona attends the meeting at the worst moment of the season. In the last two weeks, its continuity in Europe and in the Cup has been complicated, after the European defeat against PSG (4-1) in the first leg of the round of 16 and the defeat against Sevilla (2-0) in the semifinals . In addition, he drew against Cádiz for LaLiga at the Camp Nou.

Against Elche, Barcelona faces a test to keep their aspirations alive, although it is likely that Barça coach Ronald Koeman will make some rotations in various positions of his classic 4-3-3 tactical scheme.

Spanish League: Barcelona beat Elche with an exhibition of Lionel Messi

Two flashes of Leo Messi, who with the two of tonight already adds eighteen points and he is the top scorer of the championship, and a goal from Jordi Alba, all of them in the second half, gave the Catalans victory against Elche (3-0) to cut the advantage of the two Madrid teams in LaLiga.

Messi, with two goals and one assist, unblocked a match that had the same aroma as the last and saved his team, which is now five points behind Atlético de Madrid (with one game less) and two points from Real Madrid.

And that Barcelona was a team without a soul during the first half. Ronald Koeman’s team seemed ‘groggy’ after the hits against Paris Saint Germain and Cádiz. Predictable in attack and weak behind. Past your lack of confidence, anyone can cough you, look into your eyes and on many occasions even over your shoulder.

Koeman left five players who drew against Cádiz; Write made four changes with respect to the team that beat Eibar, but Barça continued with a flat football in which only one player showed up in the first half: Francisco Trincao.

The Portuguese was the only one who encouraged the attack of the Catalans. He was the only one who overflowed, he was the only one who finished with intention, he was the one who created danger in a team that seems to have already lowered their arms.

The Catalan team had problems in construction. Pjanic does not give agility to the game, de Jong did not have arrivals from behind, Pedri barely overflowed; and Messi? Accompanied by Braithwaite I wait for some overflow, Some individual play for the bench to jump, but it did not seem like his night today, until in the second half he again demonstrated what he is capable of and decided the balance for his team.

To all this must be added the structural problems in defense. They played in the axis Piqué and Umtiti, a couple that was a starter not so long ago, and who had not played together since last June. Mingueza occupied the right lane and Alba, the left.

But at the first change (minute 5), Lucas Boyé already warned with a close shot before the doubts of the centrals. Before, Trincao, in the first attack action of the match, put Edgar Badia to the test.

The same protagonists stirred the game in the 20th minute. This time, the Portuguese made a great individual move, with a couple of dribbles, but finished where Badía was.

As the minutes passed, Elche felt more comfortable. Barça did not arrive and Escribá’s men played looser to the point that they had a good arrival through Pere Milla in 44.

Koeman was right by leaving a sterile Pjanic in the bank and looking for the overflow of Dembélé on the break. Barça was more recognizable and practically in the first action of the second half, in a great combination between Braithwaite and Messi, the Catalans scored.

It was the Argentine who scored 1-0 in the 48th minute, after receiving an assist from the Danish heel. But as has happened so many times this season, Barcelona did not have continuity, they went back to their old ways and the party reduced its revolutions again.

With half an hour ahead, Escribá put Fidel and Morente into play, looking for an opportunity, but who reappeared was Messi, after a great action by De Jong.

The Dutchman signed a prodigious slalom, which remembered those he offered in his time at Ajax, and assisted Messi, who with mettle defined against five opponents and the goalkeeper (2-0, min. 69).

Four minutes later, Messi served over Braithwaite, another of the highlights this Wednesday, who gave his second goal assist of the game, this time for Alba to close the game.

Before the end, Griezmann, who came out for the Danes, had a couple of very clear chances to increase the scoring account, but the Frenchman is still denied before the opposing goal.


Barcelona vs Elche (3-0) With two goals from Messi

Barcelona / 24.02.2021 14:22:55

It took time, but in the end the Barcelona made the predictions valid and beat tonight 3-0 in the field of the Camp Nou al Elche, the penultimate place in the classification and one of the serious candidates to lose his place in the First division of Spain.

Lionel Messi was the protagonist tonight in Barcelona, ​​and scored two of the three goals with which the Barca added his fifteenth victory of the season, with which he reached 50 points, two of Real Madrid already five of Atlético de Madrid that leads the competition after 24 days.

The visitor endured the dominance of the locals the first half, however at the start the complementary part collapsed their effort on defense, when a good combination between Messi y Braithwaite, who assisted with a spectacular cue, the ball ended up inside the goal of Edgar Badia.

Despite the goal against Elche sat down on the court again to reinforce his defensive strategy, which lasted only 20 minutes, as he once again appeared Lionel Messi in your area to put the 2-0 on the electronic.

Frankie de Jong dragged the ball into the area, sent it to the Flea who entered alone. The Argentine took the ball, still took off two rivals and sent the ball to the bottom calmly.

Jordi Alba, Already with a surrendered rival, he was in charge of putting definitive numbers on the scoreboard and at minute 73 he made it 3-0 in favor of the Catalans, who returned to victory after a painful draw against Cádiz last Sunday.


Barcelona | “Messi camouflages all evils”: ‘Barcelona Connection’ by Adrià Corominas | FOOTBALL-INTERNATIONAL

We’ve always heard that big teams have a chance and they kill you, but with this Barça It seems that it is the other way around, because he needs to generate a lot to pierce the goal of some rivals who, with very little, generate danger. And this, added to the repeated individual errors in defense, has been taking its toll for a long time.

The team’s game is not that ‘tiki-taka’ either, where the speed of the ball was the most important thing. Now, those of Koeman sin of excess of driving and they are the ones who run more than the ball. In addition, they have lost the defensive intensity that served them to attack better. The culé style requires pressing up to recover quickly after loss and thus be able to start the attack as close to the opposite area as possible.

Now, this pressure is not being practiced and the team needs to retreat to start from behind, with the whole field in front to attack and with less ability to run and surprise. That is why there is more driving, it costs more to create danger and the only solution remains the same as always, Leo Messi.

Koeman asks to take “a step forward” to Barcelona, ​​because “we can still win La Liga”

BARCELONA – Ronald Koeman changed his message on Tuesday and, perhaps understanding that an injection of self-esteem in the dressing room was necessary, he demanded from his players “a step forward”, warning that dreaming of the title, despite the stumble against Cádiz, is not a impossible, yet. “I think we can still win the League,” said the Barça coach, who recalled the irregularity that has been installed in the championship.

“It has been shown that it is difficult to win the games, that each team can go down and that it is still possible,” he resolved … Realizing that this week will be “very important. It depends a lot on the next two games to think about the championship and That is why I am not in favor of thinking that the Cup match with Sevilla is the most important. “

“We have to look for the energy we had in other games; of the last 13 in the League we have won 10 and drawn three … Yes, the draw the other day was a disappointment, but we must continue and think that we are at the moment when we play a lot, “said the Dutchman, who asked, especially, a step forward from the veterans.

“We are Barça and it is the moment when the veterans, the captains, must create an environment to go for everything,” he said, highlighting that he has always been favorable in “giving opportunities to young people” but that there are especially delicate moments and noted. “It is not a time to catch more people from below. I always think of giving young people minutes, but now, to get the chestnuts out of the fire, we need the most experienced,” he said.

Koeman admitted that the mood “has lowered” and understood it “normal because it was a stick to tie with Cádiz … But if we win tomorrow we will put second again (actually third) and we will see different things”.

That is why he made it clear that, personally, “I am fine, after Cádiz I was fatal because I feel responsible and it affects me but I must have confidence to give it to my players and think that the distance is less than three weeks ago”.

“I have spoken with Lenglet this morning. He is a very good professional who takes this very personally. Only one player is guilty, although of course that is a play that he could do better and at times he has been in defense failures but we have made many mistakes in attack that we were able to sentence, score a second goal … With 2-0 a play in the last minute is not so decisive “, he highlighted when asked by Lenglet and transferring” the responsibility to everyone, to the team “.

“We have made individual mistakes but it is not fair to single out a player just because we had chances to sentence the game and it was not done,” Koeman recalled, agreeing that “it would be even worse not to create opportunities, but it is clear that we have to be more effective up front. “.

“We lack midfield effectiveness above … Dembélé had three or four chances and two chances in which you should at least score a goal. If you do, you don’t end up suffering,” claimed the coach, who, despite everything, left of course he is not a friend of igniting his criticism against players outside the locker room.

“Inside there is criticism. Inside. My job is to analyze and speak clearly with the players, but what I don’t like is doing it outside through the press. Outside, you have to protect the footballers and have good communication with them but in the costumes are clearly spoken, “he said.


Barcelona seeks cold consolation in the face of weak Elche

BARCELONA – Barcelona, ​​which went from looking at Atlético de Madrid to being overtaken by Sevilla in the standings after their disastrous draw against Cádiz, recovers this Wednesday the first league match against Elche, third to last in the table and who regained victory at after seven dates with the arrival of Fran Escrib to the bench. Barça faces the game with the double need to win, non-negotiable, and recover a tone that was not seen last Sunday. And, also, to observe the command of Ronald Koeman over his players.

The Dutch coach, an untouchable character in the eyes of the presidential candidates at least until the end of the season, has become the only authorized voice of a club without a government until the month of March and it is expected that, beyond titles or increasingly unlikely big nights, lead the transition of a team in which longing for the past is increasingly overwhelmed by the need to find a new future.

“He has a contract and is our coach, without further discussion”, proclaims every time Toni Freixa has occasion, perhaps the candidate with the clearest speech when referring to the coach, while since Joan Laporta’s candidacy he is also offered “confidence” and Víctor Font, the least conclusive of the three, resolves that his position being indisputable, “at the end of the season a balance will be made.”

Koeman is no stranger to all this while, knowing that he maintains his ascendancy among the squad, retouching pieces and slowly but firmly, he is shaping a team with a view to the future.

Catapulted to the plane Araújo and Pedri indisputably while waiting for the recovery of Ansu Fati (whose injury in November was the worst news for the coach), shapes the growth of Sergiño Dest, demands command from De Jong and trusts that Dembélé will reach a stable performance that until today is only contemplated in fits and starts, at the same time that it reveals a certain confidence, although it does not have all the continuity, in the appeared Mingueza.

Understanding that everything revolves around Messi, he maintains the undisputed leadership of Piqué, defends the stripes of Busquets and Jordi Alba, and maintains his trust in Griezmann, between need and conviction … But behind all of them he is forging a a new order in which youth makes a hole, with a patience that some hold without too much daring and others regard as prudence.

The Dutch school has shown in recent decades a demonstrated audacity in terms of discovery and trust with the young people who around the Camp Nou invite to think that players like Ilaix, Konrad, Collado, Orellana or Balde can take center stage in the first team, some of them this season, more transitional than could be desired, even if the official discourse maintains the contrary.

Between the necessary present and the hopeful future, to Koeman’s (and Messi) Barcelona each game is an uncomfortable test when not a final without turning back, as awaits him in a week in the return of the Cup semifinals against him Seville.

Before, this Wednesday, he must park the depression in front of Elche and visit the Pizjuán in the first of the two duels against the Lopetegui team that will be able to sentence if the Barça season has much reason to be from the month of March.

And it is that, in the League, it already borders on despair when passing through a penalty from Lenglet from looking at the leadership to fear for the second, third or, who knows, fourth position, threatened as I could not imagine.
