Pedri and Ter Stegen seal another Barcelona triumph

  • Straight that’s how we live it
  • Classification This is how the League goes

Barça goes from one extreme to another. In this case, he improved his game compared to the match in the Cup against Ceuta, but again he lacked forcefulness and ended up taking a pyrrhic 1-0 victory against Getafe supported, above all, by the safety of a Ter Stegen who has only conceded one goal this season in the League at the Camp Nou. Getafe put on a rocky game, relying above all on defense to seek to scratch at least one point, either leaving their goal to zero, or taking advantage of some isolated action. The only Barcelona goal, scored by Pedro in the first 45 minutes, it ended up being enough for the Barcelona fans to thwart their plans.

The eleven who planted initially Xaviwithout those sanctioned Lewandowski Y Ferrán Torres, included a couple of reserves with a view to the Cup duel against Real Sociedad. Frenkie de Jong Y Araujo they stayed on the bench, while, in point, Ansu Fati was placed as a reference, with Dembele Y raphinha accompanying him from the wings. Despite his unquestionable speed, Barça had a hard time overcoming the iron defensive framework with which Getafe was planted at the Camp Nou.

From the start it was very clear that their best options were going to be trying to break their line of five at the back with long passes or looking for a shot from outside the area at the slightest opportunity. Dembélé, tremendously incisive, was for many minutes the one who stood out the most in those fights. However, it would be a somewhat less toned Raphinha who would end up finding the perfect action to open the can. The Brazilian picked up the pass at the first touch of Christensenvery attentive to break the rival exit attempt and put a measured pass to Pedri so that he finally broke the resistance of the visitors five minutes after the first half hour of play.

Pedri himself, somewhat later, was about to tremendously tarnish his success. A more than defective backward pass from the canary gave Getafe an unbeatable option than Ter Stegen, in one against one with Foreman, prevented it from becoming the equalizer. The German goalkeeper, in fact, was already more than seeded in several previous actions, all generated with passes behind his defenders, but all of them also invalidated due to clear offsides. Until the break, Barça would find some option to increase their advantage. None of them, however, would manage to find their way back to the network.

without the sentence

After the break, Barça again accused that lack of forcefulness to sentence the game that Xavi has come to complain about in recent times. They practically monopolized control of the ball, but could not generate clear options to put the score at 2-0 calm against a Getafe that once again opted for shielding itself in defense and trying to fish for something in some sort of counterattack. The short distance in the light to achieve it, without a doubt, allowed him to think that this was not at all a utopia And, even, to cling hard to it ..

And, in fact, Getafe even came to haunt the Barcelona area with some danger, but without really worrying Ter Stegen. Despite their control of the duel, the Catalans insisted on placing their victory on a tightrope. So what Kessieclose to sunset, had an unbeatable opportunity to definitively sentence the game, well solved by David Soria and the Catalans also signed other dangerous internships, although without resolution. The excess of tightrope walking, however, did not end up taking its toll this time on a team that, for now, continues to add victories and remains firm in the lead.
