Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona knew that it could not fail in front of the Athletic Club of Bilbao -playing the option to advance to the Real Madrid like second in the classification- and did not do it (2-1), carrying the three points with a big party, especially in the first time. Leo Messi advanced to the ones of Ronald Koeman, Óscar Of Marcos put the tie and Antoine Griezman undid the tables in the final stretch.

From the first moment, the FC Barcelona adueñó of the control of the party and did not take too much in beginning to generate situations of danger near of the goal of Unai Simón. To the five minutes of game, Antoine Griezmann filtered a pass that left only to Leo Messi in front of the goalkeeper rojiblanco, but the Argentinian star did not elevate sufficient his vaselina to surpass him and the cancerbero blocked his shot.

The FC Barcelona felt very comfortable on the lawn in the first minutes and Leo Messi, two minutes afterwards, gave him back the favour to Antoine Griezmann with a big opening, but Unai Simón interposed between the French and the goal after commanding to corner his shot crossed. Shortly after, Miralem Pjanic tested a shot from the frontal that Messi finished with the breast, but the balloon lost by on of the crossbar.

A lot of warnings were synonymous that the goal could not take in arriving, and did it in the minute 20 of game. Fault in the frontal of the area, inmejorable for a teacher like Leo Messi, that stroked the balloon with the interior of the foot to lodge it at the bottom of the meshes putting it by all the square. Unai Simon did the estátua, Yeray did not arrive to clear the shot with his jump and the FC Barcelona did justice in the marker.

The Athletic Club did not appear on the lawn and the FC Barcelona followed generating danger, with Ronald Araújo that desmelenó in attack, dribbled in the frontal with a big change of rhythm and crossed too much the balloon. Before arriving to the rest, Ousmane Dembélé was near to sentence the party in a contragolpe after a jugadón of Frenkie of Jong, but the French commanded it above the crossbar.

To the Barça surpassed it in the extention

The second time began with an authentic vase of cold water. The Athletic Club of Bilbao, that had not had neither an alone occasion of goal in the first time, had sufficient with a lateral centre of Raúl García and a distraction of Jordi Alba so that Óscar of Marcos put the tie. Marcelino García Toral maddened and Ronald Koeman no could it to him believe.

It cost him some minutes to the FC Barcelona replace of the hit, but the culés did not take in going back to carry danger: Leo Messi put a centre measured in command of Miralem Pjanic and Unai Simón went back to save to the Athletic Club with an anthological stop. Second afterwards, Ousmane Dembélé went back to the load with a pair of played by the band that did not finish in goal by very little.

Curiously, the FC Barcelona achieved to demolish the wall of the Athletic Club when more atascado was his game and did it, how no, through an Ousmane Dembélé increasingly fundamental. The French initiated the played with a pass filtered for the career of Óscar Mingueza and the canterano gave the pass of the death so that an at all participatory Antoine Griezmann put by in front to the FC Barcelona.

The goal of the group of Ronald Koeman did not do to go down the arms to the Athletic Club, that advanced lines and tried to look for the game by the left band, with the arrivals of Yuri Berchiche. The Dutch technician finished the party with five defences, adding to Clément Lenglet to counter the aerial game of the ones of Marcelino García Toral. The party died with the Athletic hanging balloons and with the culés near to sentence with a big occasion of Jordi alba.
