What changed since Setien’s departure? Coach and the mood of Barcelona’s players. As it seems, a new coach was needed – the coach that fits the team’s philosophy perfectly.
Barcelona is unstoppable
Attacking line of Barcelona is unstoppable. In the first two matches of La Liga, Barca has shown true potential. Antoine Griezmann and Coutinho can make a perfect show. Messi and Ansu Fati can score many goals which means that Barca has a good future.
Lionel Messi is running a lot, dribbling through defenders and pressing the opponents. It simply means that real Messi is back. In the match against Celta Vigo, Messi was also fully focused on the match. He talked with the referee, helped team mates, appealed referee’s decisions, etc.
Coutinho’s and Griezmann’s duo could be vital for Barca’s success. Koeman said that the team has big goals but they have to focus on each match. Coach’s words are true as Barca’s players are focusing a lot on each opponent. First, they won against Villareal with a perfect performance. They could score four goals against Villareal. At the same time, Barca won a away match against Celta for the first time in five year. It means that Barca’s players don’t have any pressure, they just play beautiful football.
Last season, fans were angry with Barca’s physical conditions. Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi were not running a lot, so opponents could control the ball easily. That’s why Bayern could score eight goals in Stegen’s net, Barca’s players were not active at all. Right now Barca’s players are running a lot. They are searching for spaces to continue the attacks and that’s why they deserved 7 goals scored in two matches.
Ansu Fati is the future
A 17 years old boy, Ansu Fati could change the history of Barcelona. Fans are already bragging about his future and they might be right. Ansu already scored three goals in two matches and wants to become the youngest top-scorer of La Liga.
He has everything – pace, dribbles, perfect shot and assist skills. Lionel Messi is a proud youngster and they will perform a lot together.
