After seventeen years of playing for Barca, Messi had to leave after playing and winning for the same club. The first match of Barca since Messi’s departure and a victory of 4-2 over Real Sociedad gave a glimpse into what might be the future of Barca without Messi. Let’s have a look.
Martin Brathwaite’s Larger Presence
Martin Braithwaite was wonderful and might have recently shown that he’s supernatural material. He’s now demonstrated his hard-working attitude in past Barça appearances and proceeded with that pattern with steady squeezing that was critical to keeping a power advantage over Real Sociedad.
Yet, Dane’s exhibition was far beyond that. Clever development that permitted him to snatch a very much taken support, and he showed a coolness compelled to help Barça’s focuses fixing fourth.
Though he might not exactly be Messi, but his performances at the peak of his abilities might make him a significant asset of this Balugranan Side.
Memphis Depay solidly exhibited why Ronald Koeman was so quick to bring in the forward. This might have been the perfect opportunity to present the importance he has in this team.
While Braithwaite changed over the side’s play into numbers on the board, it was Depay who illuminated the field with snapshots of wizardry, splendid vision, erratic development and phenomenal performance.
Positively viewed as a decent central defender, Eric Garcia was continually greeted wholeheartedly to the club at which he began.
However, after seeing his presentation against Real Sociedad, his return could be a preferred bit of business over anybody truly expected. Versatility was the way into Garcia’s noteworthy
presentation, and something Barça has woefully needed their backline.
Just with his apparent smoothness, the 20-year-old’s speed praised Gerard Pique impeccably, covering his veteran associate in behind.
It’s been a bit of some time since Barcelona’s midfield has been one of the best in Europe.
In any case, the threesome of Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets and Pedri and has again shown exactly how gifted and rational unit they are with a ruling presentation against La Real.
Last season achieved the blooming affinity between the three after Pedri’s unexpected ascent to unmistakable quality at the same time, having now laid down a good foundation for himself as one of the mainland’s best midfielders, the 18-year-old’s essence close by the reliably great De Jong and Busquets makes La Blaugrana look alarmingly stacked.
