Vs Benfica - briefly.

Team is good. Game is bad. It's interesting how my feelings this time have contradiction with metrics - our xG is much higher, but I think three moments of Benfica definitely costs a goal, and all created by Barca is not.

There is no one to blame, all - well done! Araujo - !!! Demir - above my expectation. Although, Busquets and Alba remains the only who can sustainably maintain attacking against high-level defense.

A most representative moment, for me - at 46:00, failed build-up after free kick. It is very clear how the team is able to play in a positional attack, and why it cannot yet.

The rest of the season we have, in general, the preseason. Expected.

There won't be a miracle. Perhaps not necessary.
