Maxi Gómez, mini Barça – AS.com

first_imgLionel Messi lamenting. Valencia 1-0 Barcelona | Maxi Gomez dropped the ball into the area after several rejections by the defenders, shot wide deflected, but the ball touched Alba and entered his goal. Maxi Gomez was at eleven meters and there was a giant Ter Stegen, who began his recital. Thanks to the German the Blaugrana team did not go to the locker room with the game lost and an irremediable break in Setién’s credit. The Blaugrana goalkeeper again saved his team against a rejection against his own goal from Piqué, then had a sensational double performance in which he also intervened the stick and finally cut another shot from far away from Coquelin. If Ter Stegen had his job out of his ears, Jaume could take a nap in the other goal. Not one Barça player passed near him until minute 42. Before, Messi fired two faults away. One went very high and the other at the hands of the goalkeeper.Given the total disruption, half an hour after the game, Setién decided to change the system he went out to play with and return to the old Valverde system, that was when Barça showed signs of not being dead. The Blaugrana team could go to rest giving thanks to the sky that the game continued 0-0. He had 45 minutes to save another grim afternoon. As soon as the second part began, the game got more uphill to Barcelona with Maxi’s goal against which Ter Stegen could do nothing this time because the ball touched Alba and dislodged him.From there, Barca had no choice but to react, not to be out of pride. Worse could not be played. A disastrous Arthur left his post to Arturo Vidal, who reactivated the culé mood.

Vidal was the only offensive argument of a club that had no striker on the bench to threaten a Valencia that was beginning to be scared of the Argentine, as always, the only culé argument.But the desire to go for the game stripped Barça behind and Maxi Gómez received a ball absolutely alone in a backlash and sentenced the game. It could have been worse for Barça, which conceded the third at the exit of a corner, but was canceled due to lack of Busquets. If he had climbed the scoreboard, Barça would have lost the lead without the need for Madrid to play. The first test of Setién ended in tragedy before the party of a Valencia that came from being thrashed by Mallorca a week ago and that did not win a match without Parejo on the grass since 2014 and that erased the Blaugrana team from the field winning only by 2 -0 thanks to the great performance of Ter Stegen. The Setien effect is not noticeable. Barça seems more lost to each game and it is not that it improves, it is that the few things he did well and that earned him to conquer the leadership have been forgotten.

If he was playing soccer, he failed resoundingly. The bland and barren monologue of Barça with the ball could have the objective of wearing out the opponent for, as the coach Blaugrana said in the previous “end up winning the game in the 80th minute”. Nor did it turn out, in 77 it was Valencia who killed the game.Setién’s tactic was a risky bet, especially if in defense you are a drama, as is the case at hand. After nine minutes of sleeping the sheep with the ball and not seeing the rival area or with spyglass, Barça lost a ball and the home team planted in three passes against Ter Stegen. Sergi Roberto collapsed before Gayà and Piqué made him a penalty.
