The FC Barcelona he was tremendously disappointed this Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano, when suffering a very hard defeat against him Atlético de Madrid that further alienates those of Ronald Koeman of the first positions of LaLiga Santander. The Barça team was shipwrecked in all aspects, after a mediocre first half and a second in which those of Diego Pablo Simeone they could even score more goals.
At FC Barcelona, very few players were saved from burning and several of them were indicated in the wake of their bad performances. Footballers who should be capital like Leo Messi, Antoine Griezmann O Frenkie de Jong barely had prominence, while others like Gerard Piqué O Marc-André ter Stegen they failed in key plays that ended up leading to the goal of Yannick Ferreira.
Within the gray performance of the team in general, we can find some green outbreak in the performance they had Ousmane Dembele during the first half. The French winger was undoubtedly the best of the Catalans in attack and, perhaps, the only one who gave a real sense of danger when he had the ball. The Frenchman did not tire of facing again and again on the right wing.
Dembélé has a lot of potential
Without Ansu Fati, the ‘mosquito’ is the only player with the capacity for unbalance and that he used time and again to generate dangerous plays facing Yannick Ferreira and Mario Hermoso. The Frenchman’s fuel lasted for the first half until, in a play in the final stretch, the Belgian winger of Atlético de Madrid fell on him and injured his shoulder, something that left him sore.
At first, it seemed that the pain would become unbearable, but finally he stayed on the field of play. Finally, Ousmane Dembélé continued in the field although his contribution in the second half was much less. Despite this, his great first half was one of the few salvageable aspects of a FC Barcelona with too many aspects to improve.
Lenglet and Jordi Alba were also saved
Within the overall poor performance of the team, some players were saved from being singled out. Jordi Alba, For example, he was more discreet than other days but he arrived at some point in danger and made no mistakes. Clement Lenglet, who touched the goal on some occasion with a header, did not make any major mistakes and was somewhat above the average of a mediocre performance of the entire team.
