“We have made chances to score. And we depend on ourselves. We go to Munich with the intention of winning. We are playing well & rdquor ;. Gerard Piqué, one of the Barça captains, lamented the lack of efficiency that he exhibited against Benfica, portraying, once again, the serious goal problems he suffers. “There are people capable of scoring goals, but sometimes you can’t score and they couldn’t be & rdquor ;, assured the Barça center-back, convinced that” we can’t fail Xavi & rdquor ;.
He had him as a partner and now he has him as a coach. “Knowing, or having shared with who your coach is, morally you have to give him more because you know what your quality is & rdquor ;, he has recognized Pique. “And we cannot fail him because that is worth more than any communication & rdquor ;, the defender said.
“I have known Xavi for 13 or 14 years and as a coach you could already see him who sent us all the young people and now we have to transmit those ideas that he gave us when he was a player & rdquor ;, stressed Piqué, remembering that“ we are trying to help him and how else you can help him is by being an example & rdquor ;.
But Barça needs to find the lost efficiency because it has only scored two goals in the first five games of the Champions League. The one of Pique Dynamo Kiev and Ansu Fati also to the Ukrainian team. So what Xavi in his first two games he has modified the tactical structure. He started with the 4-3-3 against Espanyol and resorted to the 3-4-3 against Benfica, having as a common point the breadth of the extremes. Ilias and Gavi played the derby; Demir and Jordi Alba against the Portuguese team.
