Football is back in Barcelona and at Camp Nou after 101 days.
Barcelona has stretched its undefeated streak to 39 at home. Ansu Fati and Lionel Messi goals secure 3 points for champion La Liga. Leganes, in the first half, the game started very well. Barcelona had its back against the wall because, on two occasions, Leganes could have taken the lead. But then, the home team is founding its feet. Ansu Fati has opened the scoring in the 42nd minute.
In the 64th minute, Griezmann had a goal disallowed because his supplier, Semedo, was found offside later on. Messi converted from the spot five minutes later. In the last 10 minutes, five Barcelona players joined the book but overall, a good day for the home team at work.
For his comments on the pitch, Legane’s boss Javier Aguirre was sent off. Kevin Rodrigues curled the ball to the far post from the left flank but ter Stegen parried the ball away with a fine, diving effort. Two saves Cuellar to deny the youngster. Second, Messi played it down to Vidal, who sets Puig up. Against the keeper he was one-on-one and the latter made the save.
The corner was taken easily and Puig had a crack at target, only to be denied again. To Puig this time. Lenglet was booked too. It is a yellow card flurry. Puig brought Perez down, though Lenglet was charged for an elbow to Carrillo. Umtiti joined the books and misses the next match against Sevilla in Barcelona. Puig made a fantastic run down the left and Awaziem brought him down just as he cuts in. Rakitic went from a close angle for goal but the ball fleed high off the far post.
Remember the goal of Toni Kross in World Cup 2018 for Germany against Sweden? Rakitic nearly pulled a similar foot off.
