The oversights marked the previous of a frenetic duel where many skipped the script, Villarreal included, but with a final prize for those of Xavi. The Twitter account of Barça obviated Luuk de Jong between the substitutes before rectifying, something that Villarreal could no longer do when appearing on the video scoreboard Ronald Koeman as a culé coach. And in line with what was already happening in the days of the Dutchman on the bench, Barça de Xavi he forgot to score despite 20 exquisite initial minutes that lacked continuity. The daring demanded by the Egarense on the eve was echoed by the snatches of Abde and the last passes of Frenkie de Jong. From this, after two auctions to the Moroccan’s post and Gavi, the best occasion was born. But his compatriot Memphis despaired, alone before Geronimo Rulli, and there was hardly more offensive news from a Barça that raised to 13 the number of games of the 19 played to date without being able to see the door before the break.
A drag that took over the rest of the team, unable to respond to the local superiority in the wide area. Locked and with Eric Garcia lost as a right back. Single Ronald araujoOne more day, he embodied rebellion in a team that asked for the time. Dembélé, from the bench, he knew he would have to come to the rescue. As against Benfica after the third 0-0 on the restart, seventh in the last eight games.
Erred again Memphis when leaving the booth but Frenkie de Jong, to remove, put it inside. Such was the resistance to the goal that Soto Grade canceled it adding to the errors of the ‘community’ of Barça and the luminous of La Cerámica but the VAR, with Munuera Montero, did justice. But not because of what a shameless Villarreal deserved, who unraveled Barça, dragged into a run that ended with the tie of Chukwueze. And thank you, because the break could be bigger. until Ter Stegen, Salvador with 0-0 before Danjuma and seeing the mess in the short starts without the leather passing the divide, he dared with a long pass towards Memphis. As he did in the times of Valverde acting as an assistant with Suarez (in Getafe) and Griezmann (against Mallorca). Depay put the woe in the body with his umpteenth cut after failing Estupiñán but he dared despite his recent mistakes. Bingo. Euphoria of Xavi despite the hit to DNA. Anything goes. Until Coutinho it was released causing the penalty, putting it and then testing a Chilean. Be careful if it enters. Redemption leaves many but with duties.
