A lot of positives despite Super Cup defeat Barcelona closing the gap on Real Madrid

Barcelona may have been beaten by Real Madrid, and suffered a fifth successive Clasico defeat in the process, but Wednesday?s game between the two rivals showed the gap between the two is undoubtedly closing.
Los Blancos began the game a massive 17 points ahead of the Catalans in the league but it didn?t look that way on the pitch. Barca ended the game with 20 shots (Real Madrid had 14) and also topped the possession stats on 53%.

This was, don?t forget, a Barcelona team full of players just back from injury, (hand surgery in Araujo?s case) and Covid-19 and that have only worked under new coach Xavi for a couple of months. It?ll take time but the early signs continue to be positive.

Nothing new here but Barca finished with Pedri, 19, Fati, 19, Nico, 20, Araujo, 22, Jutgla, 22. After Gavi, 17, Abde, 20, and Torres, 21, had gone off. Eight players 22 or younger. And not any old game, against Real Madrid.? Tom Allnutt (@TomAllnuttAFP) January 12, 2022

Xavi called the gap to Real Madrid ?abysmal? before Christmas but he won?t be feeling that way now, particularly after seeing a youthful Barca side more than match the runaway La Liga leaders. There?s been plenty of bullish talk from president Joan Laporta recently that Barca are ?back? after a really tricky time. They might not be quite back yet, but they?re certainly on the way and this game, despite the result, should offer the youngsters some much-needed belief.
Ferran Torres makes Barca debut
Wednesday?s game saw new signing Ferran Torres make his Barca debut following his January move from Manchester City. The forward was in from the start, alongside Luuk de Jong and Ousmane Dembele in attack.
Memphis Depay and Ansu Fati were also on the bench which highlighted the attacking options finally at Xavi?s disposal now that players are back from injury and Covid-19 lay-offs.

In truth it was a quiet debut from Torres who looked understandably rusty. The Spain international hasn?t played since October, and it showed, but now has a week to work with his new teammates before Barca?s next game.
Xavi?s obviously in no doubt about his new signing and spoke after the match about how Ferran, Pedri and Ansu will all play a big role between now and the end of the season.
?Those three are going to help us a lot,? he said. ?Pedri and Ferran need minutes and rhythm of matches after time out, but Ansu has come straight back with a goal. All of them are going to contribute massi...
