The Dutch coach is in one of the most delicate moments since he landed at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2020, mainly due to the bad image shown against Bayern München in the Champions League.
FC Barcelona received a harsh correction (0-3) against the Bavarians, which could have been greater if Marc-André Ter Stegen had not saved the team on several occasions and if the Bundesliga had wanted to keep their foot on the accelerator. With a very touched Ronald Koeman at the level of confidence, we see five key points to receive the Nasrid people this Monday:
In recent days, the lack of confidence in the board of directors regarding the continuity of the Dutchman has transpired in different media, with several members of the same requesting his dismissal and with Joan Laporta not being entirely clear if he should be the man who leads reconstruction in Can Barça.
One of the most conservative Barças of recent times was seen in the commitment against Bayern München, where it was not possible to shoot on goal for the first time in the club’s history in a Champions League match, according to data from MisterChip. In contrast, a very aggressive approach is needed, going to look for Granada at the top and regain the helm of the project. A low intensity stake would not help even with a win.
The season is still very early to make rotations due to fatigue, but the Barça fans need reasons to be excited and this happens because they see young people hungry. That is why it can be interesting to see in the starting eleven figures such as Nicolás González, Pablo Páez “Gavi”, Riqui Puig, Álex Balde or Yusuf Demir. The second due to the absence of Pedri González, the penultimate due to Jordi Alba’s or the last to give amplitude on the right side are presented as probable.
Granada does not know victory in its first four season games in LaLiga. He has won two draws in Villarreal (0-0) and against Valencia (1-1), in addition to two defeats in the fiefdom of Rayo Vallecano (4-0) and receiving Real Betis (1-2). The two lost crashes are the most recent, so it is a team that is in a negative dynamic.
Ronald Koeman has received an ultimatum in the next three games, which will lead FC Barcelona to host Granada and Levante, with a visit to Cádiz interspersed between the week. Several media assure that Joan Laporta would have given him these margin crashes, receiving two clubs that do not know victory this season and visiting one that only adds one victory.
