FC Barcelona came out alive with a draw from the Champions duel against Dortmund. This is the 1x1 of the players in the showdown at Signal Iduna Park
The party against the Borussia Dortmund no auguraba easy for the FC Barcelona and the culés achieved to take out a tie -and thank you- in an intense party in which the ones of Ernesto Valverde were surpassed in the second time after a first part equalised. This is the assessment of the performance of the 14 footballers that were on the lawn in the first day of the phase of groups of the Champions League:
The analysis 1x1 of the Barça against the Dortmund
- Marc-André ter Stegen: Salvador. It appeared in numerous played to avoid that the clear occasions of the Borussia Dortmund did not finish in goal. Special merit had the penalti that detained him to his compatriot Marco Reus in a powerful launching and adjusted, but very read by which, by a lot of that him in spite of Joachim Löw, is the best goalkeeper of Germany of far.
- Nélson Semedo: Polyvalent. The Portuguese began the party playing in his natural position of right side and had a correct paper, but the injury of Jordi Alba forced him to change of band playing in the left, where is not accustomed. The worst of all was the penalti that committed in the start of the second time, saved by Ter Stegen.
- Gerard Hammered: Decent. It began well the party, but suffered a lot in a second time in which the Borussia Dortmund imposed clearly in attack. Clearly of more to less, Hammered suffered against one of the most electrical teams of Europe, although it kept the type and made a correct paper.
- Clément Lenglet: Errático. One of the worst parties that remember him to Lenglet with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona. The French was slow and committed errors of bulto, with losses of balloon of which did not be regret thanks to Ter Stegen. His exit from backwards was worse that of habit.
- Jordi Alba: Lesionado. As always, the Catalan side was incisive by the left band, but only lasted 40 minutes. Jordi Alba lesionó in an attempt of centre and asked the change, although before it kept on the terrain of game renqueante and totally cancelled by his physical problems. It was substituted by Sergi Roberto.
- Sergio Busquets: Uncomfortable. After several very good parties of the Catalan, went back to access to a version more resembled the one of the two last seasons. Errático And with losses of unnecessary balloon in front of the pressure of the players of the German team, finish being substituted by Ivan Rakitic in the second time.
- Frenkie Of Jong: Calm. In front of the tremenda pressure of the Dortmund, the Dutch did not shine but kept the calm at all times, worked in defence and helped to put pause to the team when it needed . It did not go his best party, but did not commit errors, initiating the party like right interior and finishing it like mediocentro.
- Arthur: Compass. In a first time in which the FC Barcelona dominated the possession, Arthur showed active, although the pressure and the defensive work of the players of the Borussia did that we saw to the Brazilian maybe too conservative and horizontal in occasions. In the second time diluted and appeared much less, already with the Germans tightening.
- Antoine Griezmann: Sacrificed. The French arrived to the FC Barcelona like a star, but very had to work for the team and to sacrifice in defence. Like this it did it against the Dortmund, desplégandose to help always to the side. However, in attack was enough more stray and did not achieve to generate real danger near of the German area.
- Luis Suárez: Guerrillero. The Uruguayan forward recovered the titularity and put him many more win that tarpaulin. It tried to combine with Griezmann and Ansu Fati, but did not achieve to be fine. In the second time, did a big played individual, but tried an impossible shot in place to look for to some mate. Not even when it went in Leo Messi could be more effective.
- Ansu Fati: Left-winger. On the contrary that against Osasuna or Valencia, initiated the party in the right band and, in spite of that associated well with his mates, was much shier to the hour of encarar. When they changed him of band and put him in the left, saw again to the Ansu Fati blatant and regateador that enamora. It finish being substituted by Leo Messi, but having left clear in which place manages better.
- Sergi Roberto: Correct. It went in in the first time to substitute to the lesionado Jordi Alba, planted of right side and fulfilled, as of habit. It did not happen difficulties in defence by his band, although it neither contributed too much to the team in the offensive zone.
- Leo Messi: Of turn. It went in in the second time to be able to begin to hold rhythm of competition. It participated in the creation of the game, but found in a phase of the party with a Dortmund that dominated to pleasure. In the last second of party, had of a big occasion, but did not have time to be able to encarar well the shot.
- Rakitic: Serious. The Croat substituted to Sergio Busquets and tried to be leading in attack although, like the rest of the team, was not able to break the German lines. This yes, seems that it will keep on being an important player for Ernesto Valverde by the serenity that contributes.
