Maxwell going strong

Sandra Sarmiento

The young Brazilian put in an excellent performance on the left wing against Sevilla on Saturday. His commitment and versatility make him a reliable resource for manager Pep Guardiola.

For Maxwell it was a return to the venue that saw him play his last competitive match for the Club. He picked up an injury in the Sanchez Pizjuan at the end of last season but at the weekend he demonstrated that he’s back in shape and determined to make his mark again this season.

A good performance in Sevilla

On Saturday he gave plenty of width and depth to the Barça attack while helping out in defence when needed.

A complete pre-season

Against Valerenga in Norway, he scored Barça’s second goal in the 35th minute. However, he’s yet to score in a competitive match for Barça though it has to be said that goals are not his prime function in the team.

On the way up

He spent the first half of the season as cover for Abidal but when the French international got injured in February, Maxwell seized his opportunity with both hands. He became a permanent fixture in the starting eleven and so far this summer he looks determined to carry on where he left off.

Six goal assists
Maxwell has now produced the final pass for six Barça goals. Last season he created five. Two for Pedro (Barça v Almería and Inter v Barça), one for Henry (Xerez v Barça), one for Ibrahimovic (Barça v Osasuna) and one for Messi (Sevilla v Barça). And the goal assist for Ibrahimovic on Saturday brings his tally to six.
