Messi-dependence, leaky defence and more: 6 brief takeaways from Real Betis win
Here are 6 things that the 3-2 away win against Real Betis have taught us.
- Even with Quique Setien, the team depends almost entirely on Leo Messi when it comes to creating chances as he assisted all three goals we scored.
- The Catalans looked good at set-pieces; two out of the three goals Barca scored came from a free-kick.
- Antoine Griezmann looks lost on the left flank; he was better when playing as a centre-forward with Messi and Ansu Fati on the wings.
- The defence is the biggest problem at Barca; It will be Setien's job to somehow fix the weak spots tactically.
- Arthur isn't trusted by the coach so far and we don't know the reason for it.
- Sergi Roberto looks poorly as a right winger and he should never again be used in that position. It would be better to play Nelson Semedo higher and Sergi at right-back.
