Former club manager Quique Setien highlights the big change in the current Barcelona team.
The Catalan giants won 1-0 against Villarreal last night who are currently managed by former Barca manager Quique Setien.
This is now 16 clean sheets from 21 games for Barcelona in La Liga this season, massive credit to goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The current crop of Barcelona players are very intense without the ball as highlighted by Villarreal manager Quique Setien.
“This Barca side is quick and technical… but what has changed a lot with them is without the ball.
“They are so intense without the ball and they forced us long several times.
“There was hardly a moment in the first half when we could play out comfortably from the back. The data is there, they are the team that runs the most without the ball.”
“We knew beforehand we were up against a great team in great form. Almost everything is coming off for them,” he added.
