The red light was turned on for Barcelona’s ‘best record ever’. Because of Real Madrid’s secret weapon.
In the 2022-23 Spanish Primera Liga 31R match, which took place on the morning of the 27th (Korean time), Barcelona, who was hit by ‘Real’s secret weapon’, lost 1-2 to Rayo Vallecano.
Barcelona formed a 4-3-3 with Ter Stegen (GK) – Balde, Alonso, Araujo, Kunde (DF) – Gaby, De Jong, Pedri (MF), Torres – Lewandowski – Rafinha (FW) . It was the combination that kept the goal goalless in the last match against Atletico.
However, Barcelona struggled defensively from the start.
In the 16th minute, Pedri lost control of the ball and was in danger of conceding, and finally, just 2 minutes later, with a questionable defensive decision, the opposing midfielder Alvaro Garcia conceded the opening goal.
Just like basketball’s intensive defense strategy that gives up sagging and long- and mid-distance defense, Barcelona also opened up the opponent’s passing path and caused a crisis, and the result was a conceded goal. 카지노사이트
Even though it went back to offside, Barcelona opened Rayo’s goal. However, Barcelona’s attacking atmosphere was broken for a single moment. It was because of the ‘real acid secret weapon’.
In the 52nd minute, the main character who broke Barcelona’s will to pursue was Fran Garcia. Rayo’s left full-back Juan Garcia stole the ball from Frankie de Jong at the half-line, ran madly for about 50m, and sank Barcelona with a shot through Ter Stegen’s left flank.
The match where Barcelona gave up multiple goals in the league was only once this season, against Real Madrid (1-3 loss) on October 16, 2022.
Fran Garcia, who was born and raised at Real, has completely transferred to Rayo, but is set to join Real Madrid again in the summer of 2023. It is like the ‘Real’s secret weapon’ hidden in Rayo has sunk rival team Barcelona once again.
Barcelona (currently 11 goals), which is challenging the record for the fewest goals conceded in Europe’s top five leagues, will fail to break the record if it concedes four more points in the future. The record holder is Mourinho’s 15 goals in the 2004-05 season.
Barca, who managed to recover only one point in the remaining time, suffered an unexpected defeat. The difference between them and 2nd place Real Madrid (65 points) remained at 11 points.
