Net and the defenders gave 46% of the passes in Ibiza

first_imgAs in the debut of Setién as a coach against Granada, the new Barça horizontal again left doubts. The Cantabrian held on to that that allowed him to wear down Ibiza (which carried a tremendous load of matches), but it was convenient to delve into the numbers to know how much wear and tear how much damage could have caused a team that had only thrown three times at the door: one with a childish shot by Rakitic and both goals by Griezmann. Until the 72nd minute, when the French goal, Barça had not disturbed Ibiza.In addition to being a team that made little progress with the ball (of the 718 passes it gave, only 187, 26%, went forward), a fact was especially striking.

The worst conclusion that Quique Setién can draw from this Wednesday’s game in Ibiza was, in addition, that not even spending half the game the ball defenses prevented them from being in danger to Neto. Ibiza was close to 2-0 three times. A shot to the post, the rebound of the same play the goal was canceled border plays that would have put Barça on the edge of the precipice. Obsessed with minimizing turnovers, Setién has radicalized his plan to avoid turnovers and has turned Barça into two games in a harmless team that only Griezmann’s class saved from a historic wreck.last_img read more
