FC BarcelonaTOFour proper names behind Leo to collaborate in the victory
Messi got all the compliments, own and others, afterreign in the battle of the Metropolitan withthe goal that won the Barca victory. There was the ball dancing on the net, atMatchpoint, until the Argentine pushed her to the foreign field, embedding it as only he knows how to cradle the ball in the corner of the goalkeeper.
But beyondGolden Ball, behind other players who in their own way also collaborated in the Barca triumph, decisive to keep the first place of the table, tied, yes, with Madrid. There was nerve and waste (Sergi Roberto), control and depth (Arthur), firmness and concentration (Piqu) and, how not, the stops ofTer Stegen, to propitiate that at that last moment the black attic beast appeared, 30 targets in the rojiblanco heart. Proper names that show that the leader is not only 10. A poker that withMessiIt was repquer. The king's court.
Starting with aTer Stegenthat kept his goalkeeper to zero thanks to stops that discount goals, because theWandaI already sang three goals,Beautiful, Morata and Sergi Robertoat the door when the German said no.Marc Andrhe never tires of saving his teammates by stopping the almost unstoppable, in the League and especially inChampions.
Piqu led the Barca resistance, despite seeing his yellow medal of the season, the tenth in 17 games, in the 31 '. Very attentive to the open field, leaving no room for the rival in turn to turn, imperial bypass, in his area and in the opposite, to the point that the stringer denied him a goal.It remains to be seen if there is injury after the entry ofVitolo, but his level was perhaps the best of the season.
On his right he kept runningSergi Roberto, which already stood out against theBorussia Dortmundand confirmed his exceptional physical moment by attacking without brake in the Metropolitan band. In a team that has been sinning for immobility and handball, the Catalan did not stop offering himself, taking advantage of the free space that left himMessigoing in. The return ofLuis EnriqueIt is another reason to motivate, resigned, for one thing or another, to end up playing sideways and not in the center of the field.
In the center of the field, brillArhur, disappeared after the parn, discarded inBumperand indito against himBorussia, recovered for the cause in theWanda. In the hot field, the Brazilian's head, sure in short, deep also in long, even kickback thrower. He gave 65 passes and 58 good, almost 90% effective in a field as complicated as theMetropolitan. His sudden banishment is not understood according to the level he is offering this season.
I don't even missBusquets, sanctioned for the Metropolitan andwhose absences were counted by punctures, when you don't defeat. However, even that circumstance was overcome by the Catalans in one of the most demanding fields of the championship and in which he had not emerged victorious in his first two visits.
