It warned Valverde that the Barça did not have to leave carry by the tension of the derbi, but lost in a RCDE Stadium that carried in volandas to the Espanyol, that carried a lot with very little. They bit the pericos, Messi failed a penalti, and a goal of Melendo sentenced
It arrived the FC Barcelona warned, but after a lot of days invicto, went back to know the flavour of the defeat. Of at all they served the signals that planted Ernesto Valverde on the way, because his tripped in the field of mines that went the RCD Stadium. It will touch to trace back in the Camp Nou to an Espanyol that with very little took out a lot, thanks to an approach of less to more and a late and saviour apparition of Óscar Melendo.
The clash was marked to a large extent by the tactical duel between the Txingurri and Quique Sánchez Flores, that conditioned, especially, a first part with little action. The visitors tried to command as always, but bumped with the wall of five midfield players and four defences of his rival, intense and biting in each action, and without doubting to the hour to cut the danger with lacking enmedio of the jaleo of some fans delivered.
The main estilete of the Barcelona was, as no, Leo Messi, that tried it everything to encourage a meeting that loomed with losing in the sopor. With several launchings of fault without success and numerous diagonals upset to a very planted saga that it was imposing to the attack culé. Between imprecisions of the Barça and snacks of the Espanyol was approaching the rest, without a lot of played remarkable further of both toneless shots of the Argentinian and Busquets.
With Gerard Moreno very alone in a non-existent offensive blanquiazul, only an error of a fallón Sergi Roberto loomed with complicating the life to his, and when escurría the first-half arrived perhaps the clearest. A good theft advanced mounted an attack that Carlés Aleñá accelerated to Denis Suárez, but his shot to the short stick carried more intention that precision and left went by little.
More action, less game
In the resumption encouraged the meeting more by tension that by game, and in a very revolved river were the pericos those that fished, maddening to a terracing that never stopped to remember that the Barça is not welcome. It was Quique to by the party putting a forward more, but finish finding oil in an unexpected replacement, with a footballer that went in to relieve to a touched Javi Fire.
The second time began with Naldo snatching him a finish frank to Thomas Vermaelen, and then began a carousel of protests and yellow in which Of Boroughs Bengoetxea did not leave happy neither to ones neither to others. If in the first-half forgave a cardboard to Messi, also seemed to do the fat sight with an agarrón to Sergi Roberto that it was the second for Aarón Martín, minutes before one of the actions that would change the party.
With the replacements of the lesionado Paulinho and Aleñá began to take air the Barcelona, that could escape and finish drowning in the bank. To the hour of party jumped the alarms in the RCDE Stadium, that protested until no more is needed nor desired a penalti that seemed, and was, of Esteban Granary to Sergi Roberto. The pisotón of the Madrilenian could not it take advantage of Leo Messi, because his hard launching and abajó took it out Diego López with a spectacular stop.
The Barça went going out of the party to measure that went in the Espanyol, that encouraged with the cries of his fans and took advantage of the distractions of a group that this time seemed much more human. The one who suffered in his meats what is a derbi was one of the little usual, Jasper Cillessen that carried the impact of an object that launched him the followers espanyolistas and saw with despair like the referee said him that it raised and continued playing.
There were few footballers with the head on the lawn, and while Gerard Hammered demanded attention what arrived was the local sentence. A big combination of the blanquiazules finish with a confined of Marc Navarro, a centre for Óscar Melendo and an unappealable finish of the canterano, that put the stadium legs up. Of at all it served the last arreón of a Barça that has seen cut his series, but that will have an opportunity of resarcirse, and to happen, inside a week. With very little, the Espanyol took out a lot. It will decide the Camp Nou.
