Trincao started in the right winger position when Barcelona beat Girona 3-1 in a friendly match. In the match that took place at Camp Nou, Thursday (17/9/2020) early morning WIB, Trincao contributed an assist for the opening goal.
Barcelona tore Girona’s goal in cooperation from the front lines, starting from Antoine Griezmann passing the ball to Lionel Messi, then La Pulga without turning his head to Trincao, and finished by Philippe Coutinho.
This goal has also become a conversation on social media. One of them is the way Messi is very confident in passing the ball to Trincao without looking. In fact, Trincao is a brand-new player from Braga.
Trianco is not only okay with contributing to Coutinho’s goal, but is also good at processing the round skin. Several times the 20-year-old player was able to mess up Girona’s defense.
On Barcelona’s third goal, scored by Messi, Trianco made the key pass. He messed up the left side of the Girona defense first before poking into Sergi Roberto, who was passed straight to Messi.
Trincao played 63 meints in this match after being replaced by Pedri. However, this was his first starter under Ronald Koeman.
Trincao’s okay performance also occurred in the test match against Gimnastic. Despite appearing as a substitute, he succeeded in making the opponent’s back line fall apart.
Trincao even almost made an assist for Konrad de la Fuente. It failed to happen after the referee annulled Konrad’s goal.
After the match against Gimnastic, Koeman praised Trincao. The Dutchman was impressed by the way Trincao found a position.
“I like how he is looking for a position. Sometimes he comes in from the middle, but also from the wing position,” said Koeman at that time.
“He has quality and must adapt to the pace and rhythm of the team. He’s a good buy,” he said.
