Fati, Coutinho and Messi impress as Barca break the curse of Balaidos

Under Ronald Koeman, Barca seem to have parted ways with the long favoured 4-3-3 and have adopted the 4-2-3-1 to astonishing effect. 

Yesterday’s game saw Barcelona play against CeltaVigo and secure a 3-0 win despite being a man light. 

Clement Lenglet was sent off just before half time and Barcelona had to play with 10 men.

Up until the game yesterday, Barcelona had been unable to come away with all three points in the last six of their last visits to Balaidos. The boys from Camp Nou were defeated thrice in their six attempts to beat Vigo away.

However, Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona had no problem scoring past their opponents, with Ansu Fati opening the scoring about ten minutes in, fluidly assisted by Coutinho, who seems to have finally found his feet with the Catalonian club. 

Finally being deployed in his favoured number 10 position, the Brazilian put up a wonderful performance which led to Barcelona breaking the curse of Balaidos and continue their impressive start to the season.

Ansu Fati has been absolutely fantastic since the campaign began, and has been building on the glimpses of brilliance we saw last season. The La Masia graduate looks like the rightful heir to Messi, and could even be in the same conversation as the Argentine forward should he be consistent with his performances. 

Leo Messi was brilliant as always, with Koeman lauding the captain’s movement off the ball in particular, in a post-match press conference.

The signs look good for Koeman’s Barcelona, and so far, the former Dutch international manager has been successful in silencing his doubters who didn’t give Barcelona much of a chance. 

Should they be consistent, we might see an all-out clash between Real and Barcelona for the title once again? Tell us your views in the comments down below…😉
