Barça recover the touch and win against Tottenham | sports


Jordi Quixano

Thank you very much for continuing with me this game! We read to you soon.

Jordi Quixano

FULL TIME! The Barça, which is clear that this year wants the Champions, has shown its ambition with football. A team that does not look like LaLiga but that remembers the one of past seasons. Triumph, then, for Valverde's team against Tottenham de Pochettino.

Jordi Quixano

Inter has won PSV (1-2) and is the leader of the group next to Barcelona because both count the duels for victories.

Jordi Quixano

Yellow card for Dier, that enters with the sole of the foot on Luis Suárez.

Jordi Quixano

M. 91. Change in Barcelona. Vermaelen enters and Busquets leaves.

Jordi Quixano

Loss of Tottenham in his field, at the exit of the ball, which accepts Barcelona. Alba receives it in the side and puts it to the area, where Luis Suarez lets it pass and where Messi hits the net

Jordi Quixano

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLL BARCELONA !!!!

Jordi Quixano

Change in Barcelona. Arturo Vidal enters the field after clashing hands with Arthur. It is a way of wasting time of the Barça, but a requirement for Vidal because the duel is electric and can not doubt or shake.

Jordi Quixano

Barça no longer presses up but tries to close the match with overpopulation on the axis. At the moment it manages to contain Tottenham, tired of running and, therefore, more imprecise in the pass. Capital penalty in hot areas. But the English outburst does not subside and the meeting is open.

Jordi Quixano

M. 85. Moura almost scored! The end sits Pique and Lenglet puts the body to deflect the ball.

Jordi Quixano

Change in Barcelona. Coutinho leaves and enters Rafinha.

Jordi Quixano

Tottenham does not give up, comfortable with the races, and now it is Lucas Moura who shoots from outside the area. The shot, flat, does not beat Ter Stegen.

Jordi Quixano

Change in Tottenham. Lamela leaves and Fernando Llorente enters the table. Thus, the English team goes to 4-4-2.

Jordi Quixano

M.78. The Tottenham tries to print pace to the duel and, since the difference is one goal and sees the tie around the corner, it seems that his legs no longer weigh him. Not even after 80 minutes dancing to the sound of the Barça notes.

Jordi Quixano

Yellow card for Kane, that in his effort to avoid the clean exit of Barca from behind gives a blow to the wrong time. The central azulgrana has remained on the floor sore until medical assistance.

Jordi Quixano

Busquets yellow card, which prevents a new against Tottenham with a grab and kick on Lamela.

Jordi Quixano

M. 70. After having controlled the game from the first minute, Tottenham's second goal opened the game. The Spurs have stretched lines and Barça has split a bit in midfield because they do not know whether to take the risk of trying to score the quarter or be conservative and sleep the duel … It seems, in any case, that they choose to continue with his football, that of possession. The best possible idea because it plays at what it knows.

Jordi Quixano

Reckless action of the defense of Tottenham, who gives it to Lloris and must bargain with Luis Suárez. Then it is Messi who steals it and when he goes to shoot, Alderweiderld manages to deflect the Argentine's shot from the ground.

Jordi Quixano

Change in Tottenham. Enter Sissoko and leave the field Son.

Jordi Quixano

Lamela receives in the front of the area and shoots with the left hand while the ball bounces on Lenglet and dislodges Ter Stegen.

Jordi Quixano

GOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLL DEL TOTTENHAMMMMMMM !!!!

Jordi Quixano

With the match more than on track, it is curious that Valverde has not sent to warm any player.

Jordi Quixano

Change in Tottenham. He leaves Wanyama field and enters Dier. Change of cards of Pochettino, which tries to equip the team with a little more foot and subtracts a physical hair. But it does not change the proposal or the idea of ​​Tottenham.

Jordi Quixano

Lenglet has held Kane in the area …. It could have been a penalty if the VAR was in the Champions League. Next year these tricks will not be seen as they are not seen in LaLiga.

Jordi Quixano

Yellow card for Arthur. The midfielder cuts a counterattack from Tottenham and sees the card with justice.

Jordi Quixano

Arthur builds, Messi drives with a pass to Alba and center of the side, which puts her where ever, back and satin. Play of memory of the team because Coutinho and Luis Suarez let it pass, knowing that the 10 came. And on this occasion, the auction, also satin and close to his damn stick, enters the goal.

Jordi Quixano

GOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLL OF MESSI !!!!!

Jordi Quixano

In a counter of the English team, Kane opens and receives at the top of the area. And, in a tile, leaves Semedo sitting to finish crossing the net. Golazo!

Jordi Quixano

GOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLL DEL TOTENHAMMMMMMMMMMMM !!!!

Jordi Quixano

Again Messi to the stick! The play is a manual counter. Rob Luis Suarez, who gives it to Leo in the divide. The Argentine runs another 30 meters and returns to shoot … at the same post.

Jordi Quixano

M. 50. Barça persists in their idea of ​​amassing the ball, even sleeping the duel now that Tottenham tries to squeeze. Although it does more territorially than with the ball between the feet.

Jordi Quixano

Messi to the stick! After running the ball for 30 meters without anyone entering, he shoots low-his typical pass to the net-and only the post spits the ball.

Jordi Quixano

Start the second part!

Jordi Quixano

And so Coutinho has hit him to open the can of the meeting.

Jordi Quixano

This is how Rakitic has hit him to score Barcelona's second goal.

Jordi Quixano

One fact: the Rakitic goal is Barcelona's 600 in the highest European competition throughout history. It's the 300th Barça match in the Champions League.

Jordi Quixano

At the moment, it's Valverde who gets away with it. It seems no accident that it is to recover the essence of Barça football: high pressure, recovery after loss and defend with the ball between the feet.

Jordi Quixano

We will have to see what alternative Pochettino offers now that the result is so adverse. To his misfortune, the depth of the bench has been greatly reduced with the injuries of his players.

Jordi Quixano

M. 45 After a few minutes without pause but without too much control, with Tottenham not knowing how to reply to the proposal of the Barça touch … The first part is over!

Jordi Quixano

Tottenham does not give up, but that can take its toll in the second act because he does not stop running, now that Barça composes his football, that which is defined by the pass.

Jordi Quixano

M. 40. Yellow card to Wanyama, who sweeps Messi from behind.

Jordi Quixano

It is no coincidence, however, that Rakitic has reached the edge of the area. Until now, with Coutinho as a midfielder, the Croatian's task was to cover the holes that Messi left on the right side and had to screw on the shaft to avoid the cons because Coutinho, a free verse, always pulled up. Today, having Arthur in his line, a player who does not travel long distances with his legs but prefers to pass the ball, Rakitic can undo a bit. The result: goal of 4.

Jordi Quixano

The Tottenham press now, worried to see how the meeting escapes the half hour. He has scored a goal canceled by a few hands of Trippier and then Ter Stegen takes his hand to stop a shot by Lamela.

Jordi Quixano

Just when the team manages to link with Messi, the 10 starts playing, from here to there, from side to side, and filters a pass to Coutinho that ends in an acrobatic way … The ball, however, is repelled by the defense and Rakitic, that appears outside the area, connects a foreshortened shot that ends up beating Lloris. A superb goal by the Croatian, who recovers the aim from outside the area.

Jordi Quixano

GOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL BARCELONA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jordi Quixano

Barça has long lost control of the game. Yes it touches in his field, although harassed by a Tottenham that has advanced the lines, but it does not manage to surpass the divide and less to connect with Messi ….

Jordi Quixano

M. 25. First shot of Tottenham! A remote-controlled kick from Kane, which hits from about 30 meters, dry and with the boat before the goal, stops him in a good stretch Ter Stegen, who also catches the ball.

Jordi Quixano

For the moment, the match continues and Barça is 10 on the pitch, now that Busquets is being treated by the Barça doctor. And Busquets enters the field! It seems that you can continue for the moment …

Jordi Quixano

It seems that he has been injured in the quadriceps. Valverde questions him if he is to follow and the player twists the gesture, so Arturo Vidal has gone out to warm up … And he throws himself to the ground! Receives medical attention but it seems that it is not to continue …

Jordi Quixano

Busquets throws his hand to his right leg. Take a minute that limps ….

Jordi Quixano

Semedo, who is one of the players put into question because their level does not improve to that offered by Sergi Roberto, a half converted to lateral, today it is toned. For the moment he has not let Song go once, while he also steps on the opposite field from time to time. So, for once it works on the defensive before showing off with their careers for the band.

Jordi Quixano

M. 17. Tottenham is stretched, now that he kneaded the ball, moves it and looks for the slits that Barcelona does not offer at the moment. For what the duel has lost its effervescence, quiet the Barça and agitated ones Spurs They do not find the solution to their offensive problem.

Jordi Quixano

Yellow card to Alderweireld after knocking down Coutinho.

Jordi Quixano

As data, Messi's goal, which has been in the second 92, is the fastest Barça at home in the Champions throughout its history.

Jordi Quixano

M. 10. Messi is eager, to the point that there are three times when he has run back when he almost never does because he chooses the moments and reserves for the attacks. Not so in Wembley, where Tottenham tries to rebuild with a circulation as fast as their careers. At the moment, it does not get away with it. Especially because Barça accepts the challenge and also runs, as exemplified by Messi.

Jordi Quixano

After the blows of Barça in recent times, there is no better way to start than with a goal. The goal, in addition, has given air to the azulgrana, who persist in their idea of ​​governing the duel through the ball. For now, Tottenham runs behind the ball.

Jordi Quixano

In a play from the back, the ball comes to Messi, who filters a pass to the deep run of Alba. The side, who runs into an inconsciete Lloris to leave the goal, puts it to the center and Coutinho, after controlling the ball, hits the net hard and dry.

Jordi Quixano

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL DEL BARÇAAAAAAAAA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jordi Quixano

The Tottenham, in the first two plays that the ball has had, hit a ball upwards in search of the race and the backs of the Barca behind. Barça, on the other hand, plays and touches.

Jordi Quixano

After the field draw, the referee inflates the cheeks and signals the HOME OF THE PARTIDOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!

Jordi Quixano

Curious the anecdote of Wembley, who has applauded to rage when the video scoreboard has focused on Messi. He will be the rival, but they recognize his superiority as a footballer.

Jordi Quixano

The teams are already in the tunnel of costumes for the parade to the center of the field while the musical notes of the Champions sound.

Jordi Quixano

We will see if Tottenham is capable of facing Barça with the many losses that centa (Eriksen, Dele Alli, Dembélé, Vertonghen, Aurier …) and against a team hungry to claim after the three consecutive setbacks.

Jordi Quixano

In the absence of 10 minutes, the players are finishing the warm-up to return to the locker room and receive the latest tactical warnings from the coaches. The stadium has a great entrance. It's almost time for the show !!!

Jordi Quixano

This game is, among other things, a vindication for Luis Suárez, who has not scored for three seasons away from the Camp Nou in the Champions League. His last as a visitor was on September 16, 2015 at Roma-Barça (1-1).

Jordi Quixano

Valverde and Pochettino have known each other for a long time. Exactly since 2006, when the Barça coach, then at Espanyol, decided that he did not want Pochettino in the blue and white outfit. "I had a hard time accepting it, but over time I understood it, Valverde believed that I was in charge of the dressing room and made the right decision," explains the Spurs coach in his biography. A new world.

Jordi Quixano

The ambition of Harry Kane, English scorer, does not fall short either. "Messi and Cristiano have surpassed the relegation figures in the past few years by getting 50 or 60 points each season, and I, as striker, want to try to match the numbers", said the Tottenham striker, who finished: "It would be great to put a hat-trick against Barça. "

Jordi Quixano

In the previous one, Valverde made it clear: "Wembley is the scenario to claim." And Rakitic, who also came out at the pre-match press conference, added: "We are stung and we want to make a great game." For now, the coach has been brave with the lineup, with the inclusion of Arthur, who until now had only one title.

Jordi Quixano

On the other hand, remember that this stadium brings great memories to Barcelona, ​​which won its first European Cup in the old Wembley, and in 2011, the team that led Guardiola played one of the best football scores seen on the planet to conquer its fourth Champions frenet to Manchester United of Ferguson.

Jordi Quixano

But let's not overlook the great novelty of Barcelona, ​​which is Arthur. "He is a footballer who seems to leave La Masia", they recognize him in the sports city of Barca. More than anything because he remembers Xavi a lot in his way of playing (and even moving) and because he does not lose almost any ball. Until now, however, it seems to suffer from the postman syndrome (as it happened to Xavi in ​​its infancy), because in his effort to not lose the ball always approaches the receiver of his pass, so slows the game and allows the rearmament of the rival. With a little confidence, however, it seems a football player made for the possession football and position azulgrana. Today he has a big test ahead to explain what it is like.

Jordi Quixano

Pochettino will then play with a 4-2-3-1, a system that aims to cut the media game of Barça, as well as subtract pass lines for Messi, which is usually placed on the inside. The Argentine coach is usually given the key against Barcelona, ​​as he showed when he was leading Espanyol.

Jordi Quixano

The official lineup of Tottenham: Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Sánchez, Davies; Wanyama, Winks; Lucas, Lamela, Song; and Kane.

Jordi Quixano

It seems that Valverde will play with a 4-3-3, which is the system he has repeated during this course when in the previous one, after the departure of Neymar, he opted for the 4-4-2 to compact the team. Now, however, and in line with the likes of Messi and the Barça fan, he plays with 4-3-3. But it is not the same to play with Dembélé of end – until now it was the main bet of the mister – that with Coutinho as it will do in Wembley. The difference is that while Dembélé has a hard time coming back and underlining the defensive exercise -deep as it is-, Coutinho does not mind getting used to that task. That's why it seems clear that when Barça fold, Messi and Luis Suarez will stay up and Coutinho will be delayed a bit to form two lines of four.

Jordi Quixano

there is already official alignment of Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Lenglet, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Arthur; Messi, Luis Suárez and Coutinho.

Jordi Quixano

The match will be played at Wembley, since Tottenham has not yet finished the works of the new White Hart Line. The stadium, home of the English team, does not present the best of the rugs. It turns out that a couple of weeks ago a boxing match was played and in the midfield we can see the grass wear. The areas, however, are in good condition.

Jordi Quixano

And, on the march of the Barcelona, ​​as previous of the encounter, Ramon Besa writes around the figure of Messi and its incidence in the equipment, until the point that seems more sharpened than never the messidependence of the team. This is the reflection: http://cort.as/-AqHU

Jordi Quixano

In the Tottenham, although it is not known if at the beginning, will play Lamela, football player that Barça intended to sign when he was just 12 years old. His story is also told by Juan Irigoyen in a match he had with the player. This is the piece: http://cort.as/-AqH-

Jordi Quixano

In the Barça will play safely Lenglet, every time Umtiti is sanctioned. The French opted to wear Barca and now has a great opportunity to discuss the site to his compatriot. Juan Irigoyen explains it in his text. http://cort.as/-AqGA

Jordi Quixano

It is not sweet, either, Mauricio Tottenham of Mauricio Pochettino, who has the losses of the Vertonghen power station, Aurier, Dembélé and attacker Dele Alli. It remains to be seen if Eriksen recovers for the match, now that Llorís is confirmed under the posts. Despite this, the English team has bench depth and will present a more than competitive team.

Jordi Quixano

It is not, in any case, the best moment of Barcelona, ​​which has three matches without knowing the win (defeat against Leganes and draws against Girona and Athletic) and that puts into question the technical Valverde, the same as in the previous year he won the league – with only one defeat on the last day when he had already sung the alirón – and the Cup. It happens, however, that there are doubts about his football, since he does not govern matches as in the past and everything is not capable of subduing rivals through the pass. Thus, the coach does not hit the key and there are several players who are not at their best, such as Piqué, Umtiti, Busquets, Luis Suárez ….

Jordi Quixano

In a group with rivals of the likes of Inter, Tottenham and PSV, any point can be decisive. Thus, after the triumph that Valverde's team reaped against PSV on the first day (4-0), a new victory would bring him closer to the next phase with only two games. Among other things because Inter and Tottenham tied one in their match.

Jordi Quixano

Welcome everyone to the live broadcast of the game that will face Tottenham against Barcelona. A pleasure to be with you.
