Another black night in Can Barça and they are already going … The Camp Nou once again witnessed another fateful match of Champions League, again with him Bayern from Munich as an antagonist. The FC Barcelona he was touched after 90 minutes in which he presented little battle and where a good number of designated players remained. The first of them, Ronald Koeman, who are followed Sergi Roberto, Eric García, Memphis Depay, Luke de Jong…
The Bayern, a team somewhat more decaffeinated than the one that rolled over two seasons ago with the painful 2-8, was the clear dominator of the game. He had more the ball, stepped on the area and always kept warm Marc-Andre Tero The steps, which prevented the win (0-3) from being even greater. The culé team ended the match without a single launch between the three sticks of Manuel News, something that makes it clear at what point are the culés.
The first major highlight of this game is none other than Ronald Koeman. The Dutch arrived with numerous casualties to this party that led him to reformulate his eleven. He recovered the 3-5-2 that, in his opinion, was the system that best suited the team last season. But obviously, that in the two positions above there are Memphis Depay and Luke from Jong and no Leo messi and Antoine Griezmann (or even Ousmane Dembélé), is more than fraudulent for the viewer.

Despite this, Koeman he opted to return to 3-5-2 and put aside the 4-3-3. The Barça It was a ship full of holes in the middle of the ocean and, despite a beginning of hesitation on the part of the Bayern until he found himself, he never had control of the ball or knew how to get his hands on the physical fabric of Nagelsmann.
The chess game was won by the German coach, who saw how each and every one of his pawns functioned against his pair. Not even the numerical superiority in the center of the field of Barça with Busquets, Pedri and From Jong it worked for Koeman. Kimmich and Goretzka They were a difficult train to stop for the Catalans, who showed greater deployment, placement and projection to the rival area.
“This is what there is,” he said. Gerard Pique after the game, reflecting where the game is Barça at this time against rivals of the entity of the Bayern. Changes of Koeman put everything in evidence, that after the 0-2 he was forced to return to the 4-3-3 Looking for a reaction that wouldn’t come Gavi, iron O Balde were some of the men who jumped onto the grass. Too Mingueza O Coutinho.
The return of the public to the stands is the best thermometer that can be obtained. The fans are sovereign and the owner of passes and failures. It was clear during the first two changes he made Ronald Koeman. The departure of Busquets and Sergi Roberto it had a very different effect. The captain was the first to leave the field to applause and then the lane followed him, who was boos and whistles from the stands after his discreet game, dislodged and surpassed by Sané and Davies who did what they wanted for their area.
Another mole was Eric Garcia. The Catalan central continues to leave an intense bitterness with each game he plays. Defensively he is leaving many doubts and appeared in the photo of two of the goals of the Bayern Munich. So much Lewandowski What Müller they got him out of his mind, as well as the young man She had to, who found a corridor through his domains.
Possibly the worst of the night was seeing the meager offensive production of the Barça. They finished the game with zero shots between the three sticks of Manuel Neuer. Zero. None. Luuk de Jong and Memphis Depay, two of this summer’s signings, left much to be desired in a match in which their teammates needed them to take a break from the hammer that was the Bavarians. Memphis did not find a way to overcome Upamecano during the 90 minutes, as well as From Jong He did not demonstrate either his air superiority or the ability to fix the centrals that are assumed.
