LEWY DID NOT HAVE HIS DREAM NIGHT
Lewandowski, surpassed by Varane and Lisandro despite the goal
Beyond his goal, with a bit of luck, Robert Lewandowski tiptoed through the Europa League playoffs. He was not the leader of FC Barcelona when he was most needed
The FC Barcelona has gone out by the rear door of the Europe League, once again. Something that seemed unthinkable in the summer, first because the team posed litigate in the Champions League and, second, because there was staff 'described' to struggle in the second more important competition of the old continent to level of clubs.
It is a new 'blow' for a Barça that had reinforced very well and that had several stars to litigate in Europe, something that has been impossible in the last years. All the team, although they competed against the Manchester United, has remained distinguished. Few save and Robert Lewandowski is not one of them although it marked the only goal of the culés in Old Trafford and that had a clear opportunity in the final minutes.

The French, besides, commissioned to minimise to Lewandowski like few times had achieved it, beside Lisandro Martínez that left an authentic masterclass in Old Trafford.
Between the two commissioned that the ariete Polish did not have at all that do in the area. The -few- balloons that could arrive, commissioned to clear them quickly. 'Lewy' Did not have at all that do in the night and suffered with the rest of the team in the second half when you adjust them of Erik have Hag minimised all the virtues of the Barça.
Goal with 'fortune'
