Sunday’s hit in the 15th round of LaLiga EA Sports ended successfully for Barcelona. The “Pride of Catalonia” has not lost in the league against Atletico Madrid since 2006 and this great streak has been maintained. Diego Simeone’s men are in a really good period, but just as it is difficult for them to play at Camp Nou, it was the same at the Olympic Stadium. The defending champions won 1-0they played at a very high level, but the result could have been much higher if they had been more effective.
Robert Lewandowski especially had problems with this element of the game, as he could have ended the match with several goals. He fired five shots, but four of them missed and one was blocked. He won 7 out of 14 fights, but his performance was overshadowed by the above-mentioned fight ineffectiveness in really good shooting situations. After a quarter of an hour, “Lewy” could have had a hat-trick in his normal form.
In the Sunday-Monday edition of the nightly football program “El Chiringuito de Jugones”, the Spanish champions’ sniper was one of the main topics. José Alvarez reported that the Barcelona board is thinking about selling the 35-year-old during the summer transfer window. There was also a discussion about the current form of the captain of our national team. One of the program’s regular guests is Francisco “Lobo” Carrasco, who played for Blaugrana in 1978-89.
“Lobo” Carrasco: “Robert Lewandowski’s mistakes worried me a lot”
– Lewandowski is a super goalscorer, but today (Sunday – editor) he had a few mistakes, which made me very sad. Wasted two clear chances in 10 minutes. But what worries me the most is that he just hit it wrong. He was supposed to shoot with his head, but he did it with his nose. This mistake happens very rarely. It’s like trying to hit with your shoe and hitting it almost with your knee – said the former striker, referring to the situation from the beginning of the match in which “Lewy” received a great cross, but he did not hit the ball cleanly, having some space a few meters from Jan Oblak’s goal.
In the context of this pitch situation, he believes that you should check the eyesight of “Lewy” and he probably didn’t say it in an ironic tone. The words shocked some Spanish Internet users, who expressed their emotions in replies to the tweet.
You have to control your eyesight, for me that’s the most important thing. If I were Barça’s coach, I would tell him the next day: “Robert, come here for a moment.” He has to agree to investigate. I’ve never been worried about Lewandowski before. But what happened today (Sunday – ed.) is disturbing. Two actions in 10 minutes. You need to go to the ophthalmologist from time to time. It’s important to check this

Perhaps, however, Lewandowski will soon be visiting doctors in a country other than Spain. Maciej Iwański stated in Wednesday’s article that there is more and more talk about the Pole’s possible departure in the winter.
“Lewandowski’s departure is, as I hear, possible even in January, depending on the amount of the offer that can be made for the Pole. Barcelona authorities know that given Robert’s active, large contract, they will not only save on such a move, but will also add a significant sum to the club’s coffers for a 35-year-old footballer. There are going to be discussions inside the club about the best solution,” he wrote on the TVP Sport website. You can read more about his words here.
