Barça ends up getting a very important match against a fierce Valencia thanks to the efficiency of those above.
The game started in a terrible way for a Barcelona that needed the three points like eating. A rejection that was killed in the front was taken advantage of by Gayá who beat Ter Stegen under. Nothing could do the German goalkeeper before the shot of the Spanish international.
The alarms went off again at the Camp Nou that we already know by heart how this story ends: a bad game for the team that culminates with Laporta giving Koeman a new vote of confidence.
Just seven minutes after the goal of the Che team, a wonderful play linked by the left wing between Jordi Alba, Gavi, Memphis and Ansu Fati, ends the culé tie thanks to a memorable whiplash from the latter. Hope returned to fly over the Camp Nou at times, as the team was during a long stretch of the first half dominating the game and the results, but the second was still missing on the scoreboard.
Just before the break, a controversial penalty whistled at Ansu served Depay to overtake his team and leave a Valencia that clearly went from less to more throughout the first half.
The rest allowed the Bordalás team to readjust certain details of the game that did not quite fit the former Getafe. The corrections served to embolden the Valencian team in the first minutes. The absence of a goal coupled with a step forward from the Catalans caused that around minute 70 they lowered their arms slightly, but it was not until 85 ‘when Barça sentenced through Coutinho but thanks to a play by Sergiño Dest.
Then Kun Agüero made his debut, unable to touch more than two balls but received a tremendous standing ovation.
