This is a lot of fun.
Dani Alves is run down repeatedly for his defending. Sure, he can get forward like a winger, but his defending is largely regarded as ‘eh.’ So watching his spadework combined with Jordi Alba on the other flank here in a recent game against Malaga is quite a bit of fun. It’s rare that any team can claim to have a two-way fullback like Alves. But to have a talented complement on the other side? Nonsense. Barcelona is a cyborgteam.
