A vulnerable Camp Nou

Barça has lost the El Clásico, has left another six key points and has been humiliated by Juventus and PSG in their stadium, where the season is ending.


After having traveled halfway through Spain winning away matches in LaLiga (Valladolid, Huesca, Athletic, Granada, Elche, Betis) that had allowed them to recover in the standings, Barça left two dramatic points against Cádiz this Sunday that confirm the vulnerability of the Camp Nou. Beyond the defeat in the Classical (1-3), Koeman's team has thrown six points against Eibar, Valencia and Eibar, key in the championship.

That, in LaLiga. In the Champions League, and after eight years without losing at home in Europe, they lost in December against Juventus (0-3) and were condemned to second place in the group after a disastrous performance. Worse was last week, since the 1-4 leaves him virtually eliminated from the competition. One more proof of the team's' loss of hierarchy. But also, of his weakness as a local since the pandemic arrived.

Surprisingly, Barça have been able to stay focused better in their away games than at the Camp Nou. Barça is in a mistake. For years he won home games with sufficiency, without having to step on the accelerator. And sometimes, as in the game against Cádiz, that ends up confusing him. Because now it is a fragile team that pays the first disconnection it has, such as Lenglet's penalty against Cádiz. And that in addition, he has taken the bad habit of abandoning himself when he sees it difficult. After Madrid 1-2, PSG 1-2 ..., or 0-1 against Juventus. In case there were few escape routes, Koeman has another open front.
