5 key points as Barcelona grab important away win against Sevilla
It is a great day for all Blaugrana fans worldwide as Barcelona defeated Sevilla despite it seeming unlikely prior to the match.
Koeman opted for a change in formation and that added solidity to an otherwise shaky backline. This is a huge boost to our confidence as we approach a crucial period in the campaign with 3 trophies on the line.
Here are 5 things to point out from today’s match:
1. Using 3 defenders at the back ensured the defense remained solid throughout the game. Busquets weren’t needed in defense and as such the defense fared well.
2. Oscar Mingueza showed today that he can become a key player for Barcelona going forward. He completed the most tackle in the game (4/5) and had a pass completion rate of 91.1%.
3. Pedri has been overused this season. It is high time Koeman start to trust Puig and Moriba more, they have delivered when on the pitch. Now that he is injured, the coach doesn’t have much of a choice.
4. Barcelona didn’t create many chances and while we still got the win today, this might not be enough in other matches.
5. Messi is at the center of everything Barcelona does and other players need to step up if we are to compete for trophies this season.
