FC Barcelona: Without Lewandowski you suffer like never before and a historic record is broken
Lupon arrival of Lewandowski to Barcelona It was a joy for a hobby that was missing a franchise player since Leo Messi left. A breath of optimism that was endorsed with the good entry of the Pole into the team. His start was spectacular with a goal average that was more than one per game. There was then talk of the team’s dependence on the Pole.
That is why there was so much fear in the culerada when they fell three games of sanction for his gesture in Pamplona to Gil Manzano. The club tried to delay it as long as possible, even resorting to ordinary justice. Despite the importance of the striker and some spectacular numbers that portended the worst without his presence, at the moment of truth the blow was not so hard.
First episode without the Polish
In those three league games in which Lewandowski was not present, Barcelona got the win. He suffered a lot because in all three games Xavi’s team won by the minimum. win one zero to Atlético de Madrid, Getafe and Girona. Dembl and Pedri, on two occasions, were in charge of scoring the goals that in theory should have belonged to the Pole.
injury in Almera
After that period in which Xavi could not count on his striker, now it has happened again. In this case it was not due to a sanction, but due to an injury. An overload in the Almera match He has left it out for a period of approximately two weeks. In Barcelona they already expected the worst because his injury occurred after two considerable bumps such as the elimination in the Europa League against Manchester United and the loss against Rubi’s men in the League when he could get ten behind Madrid.
Subscribed to 1-0
However, again Barcelona achieved two wins without the Pole. And again both for the minimum. The team seems subscribed to 1-0 when the Pole is not there. This time the rivals were Real Madrid in the Cup and Valencia. In both cases, the blaugranas suffered tremendously to win. But in the end they got it. What seemed like a drama when it was said that Lewandowski could not play, in practice it has not been so much.
The 1-0 or 0-1 has become commonplace this season at Barcelona to the point of beating the historical record of wins by the minimum in this League: 8 in total. And there are still 14 days ahead.
