The analysis of a point that was more than sung

The numbers are cold, unemotional, and will tell that the Barça 2021-2022 chained 15 days of LaLiga without losing as a visitor (9 wins and 6 draws), the third best record in Barça history. However, the chronicles of the last result of this praiseworthy streak will say that the culé team and Getafe starred in ninety minutes of an improper conformity of two elite teams, who insisted on not playing and succeeded. Neither kicked nor even considered it. Zero in ambition and ideas. worst image for those of Sanchez Flowers, who gave the insufferable show before their own fans.

And that he Getafe, like the rest of the rivals, had to be ‘sparring’ so that a good group of players could claim their own, hit the table and show that they have a place in the squad. None have made the cut and about all those who had doubts, Xavi now has certainties. Any decision he may make will surprise no one.
