Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Champions League is a history that is difficult and thrilling to explain, without mattering results, teams neither rival. It is the meeting of all the 'impossible' that go back possible with a space of a metre to run and a nightmare to the errar a pass and fail in the coverage. It is where a pass of more, a touch of more or a trip punishes, but where the magic nights occur. To the FC Barcelona has touched him cross after an eliminatory very contested that it has defined in an Estadi Olímpic Lluís Compannys that has seemed a boiler.

In Europe the contexts do not cost a lot, neither neither the results in favour. It is a history that begins from zero when the referee pita and that does not understand of logics. The Barcelona had all the ingredients to repeat the feat achieved in the capital of France, but a cumulus of errors, with the expulsion of Ronald Araújo, ruined the dream of the Catalans.

Several 'histories' in the same party in Montjuïc

Xavi, in the previous of the party, had bet by the approach but logical and effective. It repeated the eleven of the crash in the Park of the Princes with the only modification of Pedri González to relieve to the sanctioned Sergi Roberto, whereas Luis Enrique himself revolutionised to his team with the entrance of Achraf Hakimi, Warren Zaïre-Emery and Bradley Barcola. The two trainers threw of logic and corrected errors, but if has something the maximum competition to level of clubs is that your plan can go to the rubbish in question of seconds.

To the Barça has happened him something like this, although it is necessary to go by parts. The Barcelona had achieved to tread the plan of the crash of gone and contain the offensive gale of the Parisians. Merodeaban The area of Marc-André Ter Stegen, but between Koundé, Araújo and Cubarsí dissolved any type of danger. Kylian Mbappé, this time playing more centred, did not have capacity to receive with comfort and plant in the area girl. It was so 'equal' that the party of the gone that, in one of the first overtakings of the culés, achieved to advance.

It had not happened a chamber of hour when Lamine Yamal went with complete ease of Nuno Mendes and coló in the area putting with a centre with a lot of power so that Raphinha, almost without wanting to, commanded it to the deepest of the network. It breathed Xavi Hernández in the band, but the history did not do more than beginning. The goal seated well to the Catalans, because they dominated and contained to the PSG -as in the gone-, but appeared an unexpected protagonist: Bradley Barcola. To the 29 minutes, had to colarse in the area when it was arrollado by Ronald Araújo being last man. Kovács did not doubt in commanding him to the street, without refutar, to give a dump to the crash.

The 'error' of Araújo was the sentence for the Barça

And it is that with ten players is not simple to face a party of such calibrate. The trainer egarense understood that the solution was to renounce to an attacker, Lamine Yamal, to take care in defence with the entry of Iñigo Martínez. The consequence arrived almost immediately, with Dembélé applying once again the law of the ex. It received a centre of Barcola, the most active of the combined Frenchman, and finished entirely only from the left stick. The Barça knew that the history would not be simple, all the contario, and that it had to do an effort sobrehumano that did not know if it went to be sufficient.

The PSG could complete the 'traced back' before the rest with a volley of the 'Mosquito' that left diverted by very little. It was the beginning of a Barcelona group desbordado and that began to see against the ropes. As if, of to little, the European ghosts of these last years did act of presence in Montjuïc. The history (blessed history) put very against and remained confirmed in the first fifteen minutes of the resumption.

And it is that, as if of an authentic vase of cold water treated , the ones of Luis Enrique did not leave to breathe to the Barça. They shut them in own field and forced them to live very hit to Ter Stegen. After a warning of Fabián, whose finish was very crossed and left was, arrived the tie: After a corner, with the defence blaugrana hundidísima, Vitinha found the balloon to command a finish with too much power that won to the guardameta of Mönchengladbach. The reaction, in one of the few approaches culés, arrived with a finish from the frontal that was about to colarse in the arch.

It was an attempt. But it was too slope up. The eliminatory, in this moment in 4-4, was much more put for a PSG that, with a confined of Dembélé to the area, won a penalti after arrollo of Joao Cancel. Kylian Mbappé Did not fail from the eleven metres and decanted the eliminatory for his just before, after reiterated protests, Kovács expelled to Xavi with red direct. A point less for a Barça that saw against the ropes, increasingly, but that resisted to give by defeated.

The Barça dies in the bank

The culés asked penalti after a fall of Gündogan after touch of Vitinha and Lewandowski, shortly after, had his opportunity of gold after a finish potentísimo that cleared Donnarumma. The refuse wanted to hunt it Ferran, but Marquinhos appeared before to avoid the danger. Afterwards it was Raphinha the one who appeared planting in rival area, but his finish was crossed. It tried it the Barça, with shadows of what could be, but did not reach them to equalise and force the extention. The dream of the Champions League died in quarter-finals.
