La Liga / Matchday 6
Nuevo Mirandilla / 23.09.2021
FULL TIME: Cadiz 0-0 Barcelona
Drama! What is going on? First, Busquets kicks a second ball on the pitch into Salvi as Cadiz attack. He's booked, Koeman is sent off then ter Stegen has to make a late save!
Chances! First, Memphis has a header back across goal cleared! Then Cadiz come forward and have a shot blocked. Then Memphis has a low strike on the counter flash wide. Madness!
It's just not happening for Barcelona. They are at least giving it a go, though. For perhaps the first time since the red card, they are on the front foot and attacking Cadiz!
Coutinho shoots wide! That was a good chance for Barcelona to score a late winner, but Coutinho sends his strike wide of the far post when he might have tested the keeper.
There will be five minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.
And now Alarcon is booked for bringing down Memphis on the edge of the Cadiz box.
What a waste! That was dreadful from Coutinho. Barcelona had a chance to get a dangerous delivery into the box with Araujo and Pique up from the back, but Coutinho drifts it long.
That's a bit clumsy from Akapo and he is shown a yellow card for a foul on Memphis.
This isn't looking good for Barcelona. It's Cadiz who are pressing for a winner. The away side are struggling to get out from the back. Can the home side find the back of the net?
Koeman has experimented with a number of different formations in recent weeks. The Dutchman has moved away from the 4-3-3 shape and into a three-man unit at the back. Goodness knows what this shape is!
That was the chance! Oh what an opportunity for Cadiz to take the lead! Puig lost the ball with his first touch, Salvi is played clean through on goal, but ter Stegen makes the save!
Puig is on for Barcelona. Can he make the difference for the Catalans?
Cadiz introduce Akapo for the final 10 minutes or so of the match.
Koeman and his Barca players faced many of the same structural problems last season, but they had Messi to mask them. Now, Messi is gone and those issues are coming to the fore.
Part of this problem is down to their lack of physicality. Busquets is still an important figure for Barcelona, but he is into the twilight of his career and can’t cover the pitch like he used to.
Barcelona are renowned for their high press, but that has completely disappeared with Koeman at the helm. They are frequently so passive when they are out of possession.
One of the best things Koeman, for all his faults, has done for the future of Barcelona is safeguard the club’s future by bleeding so many young players into the first team.
