A more than positive first half for the Blaugrana team, but which ended up coming to nothing after the German team’s 1-0. Xavi Hernández did not leave the match happy and pointed out several players who disappointed him during the visit to Germany. Here are the names:

The 4 indicated by Xavi after the fall against Bayern

-Sergio Busquets: The Spanish midfielder signed a great first half, at which point the Blaugrana team dominated their rival. But, after 1-0, he fell along with his entire team. Busquets continues to show that he is far from being a dominant midfielder in the UEFA Champions League because he is not prepared to make a difference in different zones and that he becomes an anti-competitive piece when the team does not play well. He needs a lot of context to be a differential footballer.

-Marcos Alonso: The Spanish side was the worst of the entire defense, losing individual duels and not generating with the ball. At 1-0 it was his fault because he lost Lucas Hernández’s mark. It was his debut as a starter, but it still left many doubts that can be repeated in the future.

-Ousmane Dembele: The Frenchman was very imprecise in the last stretch of the court. He only won 6 duels out of 16 and had many turnovers. Only 3 good dribbles out of 10. A discreet match for the Frenchman when he is expected to be one of the leaders along with Robert Lewandowski, who also did not have a good game in front of goal and was surpassed by Dayot Upamecano in most duels. A significant downturn compared to what he had shown in other games.
