Barça does not suffer without its top scorer: twelve goals in two games

Don't say goal, say Barça. The Barça team maintains its idyll with the goals, the same ones that led it to be one of the most striking tables on the continent in the last season, with 125 targets. Despite the fact that his scoring rhythm was interrupted by COVID-19, which forced him to suspend the League in the absence of eight days being the Barça title, those of Lluís Cortés have not lost their aim after the quarantine. Neither have they done so despite the loss of Jenni Hermoso in the last two games in the League and Cup. The one who was top scorer in the previous two consecutive seasons, one with Atlético (24 goals) and another with Barça (23), He has not been able to play because he was out due to a viral process. But the Barça team has been able to make up for his absence with hardly any deficiencies in attack.

Thus, the Catalan team beat Sevilla (6-0) last Thursday to get a pass to the Cup final, where they will face Logroño on a date and venue yet to be decided (everything indicates that it will be mid-February in Malaga). It was precisely the Riojan team that was its last victim in the League on the recently contested matchday 2. The Catalans repeated a blank set in a match that took place after the awarding of the league trophy last season. A scoring rhythm that took another step after the 0-4 endorsed to Real Madrid in the first meeting between whites and azulgranas in this category. In this way, if last year Barça left an average of four goals in favor per game, this start of the League already warns with being able to exceed this figure. And it is that in the three games played to date (2 in the League and one in the Cup), they have scored sixteen goals, that is, a little more than 5 goals on average per game.

His level is not only measured by goals. The azulgranas have not conceded errors in defense, being the only First Iberdrola team that maintains a clean sheet after two rounds played. Nor have they conceded a goal in the semifinal tie of the Queen's Cup, a tournament that has been resumed in its 2019-20 edition after being suspended due to the impact of the coronavirus. The plurality of the Catalan team's scorers also stands out in the three games played. The young Aitana Bonmatí is the current top scorer of the team, with three goals (a double against Logroño and a goal against Sevilla). Meanwhile, Oshoala, Graham Hansen, Alexia Putellas and Patri Guijarro accumulate two goals, one more than Martens, Mélanie Serrano and Vicky Losada.
