FC Barcelona score in four consecutive matches thanks to players who have started as substitutes
Ernesto Valverde has been key in FC Barcelona’s latest games, with his changes seeing goals in four consecutive matches from players who started on the bench. Goals that have earned valuable points in the League, a great result in the Copa del Rey and qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
This streak can be explained by Ernesto Valverde’s excellent reading of games. In fact, before this season, both Coutinho (against Alavés) and Munir (against Athletic Club) also scored decisive goals in the League having started as a substitute.
