World News – CA – Ronald Koeman’s failures revealed as Sergio Ramos proves why he’s so precious


It was obvious long before the 81st minute that something wasn’t working out as planned for Barcelona, ​​but this is the time that Ronald Koeman waited to make a single substitution in the Clasico loss on Saturday to the Real Madrid Tired and tired from a week also saw the Catalans play in the Champions League, they were deprived of their chance to return by their coach

Koeman’s bizarre reluctance to change a team that was not performing as planned will no doubt be the subject of much debate and discussion in the Catalan media this coming week, but eyebrows were raised as soon as the sheet d Barcelona team handed over before the match

Ansu Fati, Sergino Dest and Pedri were all named in the starting lineup and if one (Ansu) scored Barca’s equalizer and another (Dest) played well, Barcelona could have benefited from the Antoine Griezmann’s experience despite the poor performance of the late Frenchman He at least knows what it takes to win these games

Sergio Busquets’ experience didn’t help much, in all fairness, the 32-year-old poorly exposed for Fede Valverde’s opener Increasingly, he lacks the physique to play at the midfield base Barcelona pitch While Busquets was once deceptive in the pitch he covered on the pitch, he now finds himself chasing faster and more energetic opponents

So it was no surprise that Busquets was addicted to a more offensive threat with Barca continuing the game, but Koeman’s decision to pitch three forwards (Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann and Francisco Trincao) also warrants consideration There didn’t seem to be more thinking about the Dutchman’s game plan than bringing in as many forwards as possible and hoping something could happen

Despite all this, Barcelona still had scoring chances more than once Lionel Messi should have put his side forward at 1-1, failing to beat Thibaut Courtois at the near post when he could have crossed instead goal Messi, along with a number of others, played in himself, as he did in almost every game at the start of the season He has now played six Clasicos without scoring or registering a pass decisive (since Cristiano Ronaldo left Spain in the summer of 2018)

Barcelona find themselves stuck in no man’s land between the last generation and the next The Camp Nou club have an undeniably promising youth contingent, but after spending around five years without a single La Masia graduate, Koeman must now bridging a generational gap between teens and veterans

Zinedine Zidane was put in charge of something similar, starting Vinicius Junior, 20, alongside Karim Benzema, 32, in attack Not so long ago, Barcelona and Real Madrid were in contrast on almost every level, from the transfer market approach to overall sports politics and ideology. This is no longer the case

Indeed, there is something to bind the two rivals in their respective situations, but Saturday’s Clasico proved that Zidane handles this situation better When it matters most, as was the case at Camp Nou, the Real Madrid’s most experienced figures are coming in big It was the aging nucleus of Los Blancos that brought them across the finish line in last season’s title race and they did the same against Barcelona on Saturday

No one can count on a great game performance more than Sergio Ramos The 34-year-old was in serious doubt for the game after suffering a knee injury in last week’s home loss to Cadiz, but returned to the lineup to produce a man of the match display, scoring what was effectively the winner from the penalty spot

If Real Madrid are to retain their La Liga crown, it will likely be thanks to Ramos’ willingness as spiritual leader.He is the Santiago Bernabeu’s most influential figure, often masking his manager’s tactical missteps by pure determination Koeman lacks someone to do this for him
