By Football Italian staff L’Ascoli’s defence was always the most impressive, with the likes of Luis Suarez and Pedro and Neymar in the team and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois performing well, but they did not have the same defensive awareness that the likes the likes to Juventus and Milan have.
That is the reason why this article, entitled ‘Learning helplessness’ focuses on the defensive discipline of Barcelona’s defenders.
In this article we will look at how Barcelona’s players were able to exploit the lack of defensive awareness to gain control of the ball and cause their opponents great problems.
To understand the full extent of Barcelona ‘s defensive strategy we must understand the gameplan of the opposition.
The Catalan side was very good at exploiting the lack.
They started the game with an attacking 4-2-3-1 formation and were able find an opening through a variety of different passes.
Barcelona’s best player, Lionel Messi, was very active, creating openings for his teammates by dribbling at defenders and also by finding an opening in midfield.
However, his best performance came from the defensive side.
As soon as the ball arrived from a corner, he immediately took up the ball, played it off the back of his teammate and ran towards the corner.
This was in order to prevent the opponent from scoring.
It was a tactic that made sense for him, as the Catalan side is very good with creating spaces for their players, which made the players who defended him extremely dangerous.
After a few seconds, he played a perfect ball through the centre of the box for Neymar to get the ball into the net.
In the second half, Barcelona were able use this tactic to their advantage.
The goal was scored after a short corner kick from Messi and Neydre and the goal came off a combination of a perfect cross and a great ball from Courtoist.
In this situation, Neymar was able to dribble into the penalty area, with Courtoise waiting on the outside of the penalty box.
Neymar dribbled past the defenders, dribbled towards the box and fired the ball towards Courtoises feet.
The pass was very precise, and the ball had a very good trajectory and was headed towards the goal.
This set up perfectly, as Neymar went down the right flank, to play a perfect pass into the box from the right side.
Neydres feet went into the path of Courtoisi who headed the ball past the goalkeeper, who was looking at the penalty spot.
The play was completed in under ten minutes.
It wasn’t just Neymar who was a winner for the Catalan team.
In fact, it was a lot of the Barcelona players.
Lionel Messi scored the goal, while Pedro and Xavi also had important contributions.
Xavi’s goal was a great goal because it was an absolutely perfect example of the type of goal Barcelona had at the start of the season.
It was very important for Barcelona to score, because they were a very strong team, with two of their best players, Neym and Pedro.
However their defensive discipline was not as good as it was at the beginning of the campaign.
Barcelona were not the most organised team at the back, which was also the reason for their poor defensive play.
As a result, they were able, on occasion, to exploit their weaknesses, and Barcelona were also very good defensively when they were defending.
However, it would be wrong to look at the performance of these players as simply a lack of quality.
They were good players, and when they play well they can be very good.
Neym was the best player in the whole team.
He was very dangerous, his movement was fluid, and he was always moving the ball forward.
Xabi Alonso was the only other player who was not very good, and in particular, not as dangerous.
In his case, it is important to remember that he is the best defensive player in Barca.
In truth, they are very good players.
It would be even more important for them to be in the right position to score the goal and to be able to defend well.
The problem lies in how they were taught to play and when the team was playing.
The defensive discipline Barcelona had was not perfect, but it was not a complete disaster either.
Barcelona are a very defensive team, and that is why they are able to create many chances when the ball arrives in their penalty area.
They can exploit the gaps created in their defensive line, but if they did, the chances would not be so good.
This is a point Barcelona could not overcome for long, because the attacking side was able play more freely, but not enough to cause problems.
The team was able score many important goals this season, and they were very dangerous when they played this way.
It is important that Barcelona are able for this to continue, because otherwise, it will be difficult for them and it will take away their best attacking players from the team.
