In addition, the Italian-Brazilian Thiago Motta also contributed with his experience in key moments for the team, which went through difficult times in the locker room.
Up front, there was a mix of nations that brought goals and good play. Neymar Junior, the figure of the team (despite his injury), was key to bring the quality jump that the team had been looking for. In only 20 games, Neymar scored 20 goals and 13 assists.

In the goal, Pep's team counted on the Chilean Claudio Bravo and the Brazilian Ederson Moraes. The Latin duo only allowed 25 goals against (so far), this being the less beaten goal zone, with 1 goal less than Manchester United.
