Ter Stegen: Partidazo of the German goalkeeper, especially in his long movements with the feet, most successful and generating much danger by breaking many lines. He didn’t have much work, but he was safe in all his actions. Moreno’s goal came after a good intervention from the goalkeeper, but he could not finish tackling the ball.
Semedo: Irregular match of the Portuguese, which ended up being replaced. He made an unforgivable error in a ball out from his side, which almost cost the team a goal. He was very lonely in most of the actions and could barely climb in danger, since the only one who accompanied him and was a dropper was Arturo Vidal.
Pique: Solventful party of the Catalan central, who did not complete the ninety minutes to avoid seeing a yellow that would have prevented him from playing the derby. This time his pulse with Gerard Moreno did not sparks.
Lenglet: Outstanding. The French central defender played his best game of the season. Powerful in the air game, sober in the exit of the ball and fast in the anticipation. A perfect match of yours.
Alba: Another who has completed his best game of the season. The offensive game has opted for his band, with a Messi standing very close to him. He was close in addition to scoring a goal. He recovered the connection with Messi, but also with Griezmann, as could be seen in the first goal. Furthermore, the coverage with Sergi Roberto was providential. He ended up exhausted.
Sergio Busquets: Stellar. Another match to frame. Perfect in every sense. A compendium of balance, technique, intelligence and positioning in the midfield. At this level he is an irreplaceable player. It is clear that old rockers never die.
Arturo vidal: The Chilean continues to be a key player in Setien’s team when it comes to occupying spaces and infusing his teammates with courage. He was close on two occasions to score Asenjo, but he was not very lucky facing the door. Every day he is playing more and better.
Sergi Roberto: Stratospheric. His best game this season and by far. He played inside left, breaking lines how and when he wanted. The feeling of superiority that gave in the midfield was key in the win. He always combined with sense and was present in all the dangerous actions of the team. He was seen comfortable in midfield. He did not enjoy as much when he played right back, but he continued to show a great level.
Griezmann: It is clear that if he wanted to vindicate himself, he did it in the best possible way, completing a perfect match and scoring an anthological goal, of petroleum jelly, and after a heel of Messi. In addition, the first goal came after an action that misled Pau to score at his own door. To the French it seems that it works very well for him to be “bitten” a little to react. At this level you will no longer sit on the bench.
Suarez: He continues to accumulate successes and failures, but this time there was more of the first than the second. He scored a goal, after a perfect assist from Messi. He is already the third top striker in the club’s history, with 194 goals. This time he was substituted in the 60th minute.
Messi: He did not score, but he gave two assists, crashed a ball into the crossbar after an extraordinary free kick, and a goal was canceled. This is the balance of a crack, but in Argentina it has become one more day in the office.
Rakitic: He left for Semedo and was placed as a left inside for later, with the departure of Busquets, play as a pivot. Correct match, especially defensively.
Riqui Puig: It started a little cold, making two mistakes, but gradually warmed up and found the point in midfield. He is still at a superlative level defensively and playing very smart with the ball.
destiny: This kid is the new Midas King of football, everything he touches turns him into gold. On the first occasion he had, starting from the left wing after a great pass from Alba, he ended up putting the ball inside.
Braithwaite: He was close to scoring with a header, but Asenjo took the ball on the same line.
Araujo: He played the final minutes, demonstrating what he already pointed out in Mallorca. He has level to play in the first team.
