HANDANOVIC SAVED 8 BARÇA SHOTS AND JUST CONCEDED A GOAL

A matter of effectiveness

As it did not happen in the last matches, Barça showed a deflected aim in their search for the goal

Before playing against Inter Milan, Barça scored 14 goals in their four last matches. 4 against Sevilla, 2 against Inter, 5 against Real Madrid and 3 against Rayo Vallecano. Considering all the shots in target in these matches and the ones that ended in a goal, Barça had an average 46% of effectiveness. The team had a great efficacy against Real Madrid and Rayo Vallecano, with a 60%.

However, in the tie against Inter, Barça had 8 shots on target and they just scored a goal. It means a 12% of efficacy. It is also significant that Inter scored in their only shot on target. It is also curious that against the Italians in the Camp Nou Barça had a similar effectiveness. Then, Barça won 2-0 but they had 11 shots on target, what is a 18% of efficacy.

These stats specially warn Luis Suárez. The forward had a great performance against Inter and he had a vast amount of chances, however Handanovic denied all of them. Suárez shows anxiety in his aim for the goal because of his lack of efficiency in Champions League. His last goal playing away from Camp Nou in the European competition was in September 2015. More than three years without scoring as a visitor. However, if he keeps performing as he is doing now, the goal will come.
