Calendar of FC Barcelona

Full stop to the season of the FC Barcelona, that closes with two titles, of LaLiga and Supercopa of Spain. The blaugrana have seated the bases of the team that, in the course that comes, pretends to go back to litigate in Europe. They close the year with a visit to Vigo in which it has confirmed the Pichichi of Robert Lewandowski and the Zamora of Marc-André ter Stegen (without record), but in which the team has not showed his best version and went back to leave doubts to defensive level, conditioned -also- by the intensity of the picture vigués.

It is not a secret for anybody that there are parties that read and understand by what plays each team. In Balaídos, in the last day, went like this for the Barça and Celtic: ones had done the works does some weeks to top champions and, the venues, had in his hands the salvation. It was not surprise the intensity, win them neither neither the need of a picture 'celestial' that knew that it had to impose in front of the Barcelona.

Between Gabri Veiga and the passivity of the culés, the history put in favour of the ones of Carlos Carvalhal to sentence his salvation, almost without suffering in his field. The Barça, by his part, had taken out a XI very competitive as to litigate by the party, but the team already was on holiday and, except moving the balloon of a side to another and the goal of Ansu Fati to twelve minutes for the end, did not leave sufficient arguments to contest the result to the venues.

A Barça without a lot of alternatives in Vigo

In the first compasses of the meeting both groups went out to presionar and look for self-evident occasions of goal, but went the Celtic the one who had the clearest to put to work to Marc-André ter Stegen that, although it sacked of his records of put less goleado or greater goals to zero, appeared in several opportunities to head to his in Vigo. It did what could, with cut across to Veiga or Seferovic in the first minutes in front of a Barça that it could advance prompt, by means of a goal of Kessié cancelled by offside, and that was very comfortable with the balloon, but that suffered in front of the loss and the fast transitions of the vigueses.

Although the ones of Xavi could advance with occasions of Kessié or Lewandowski, that commanded a finish looking for the long stick, but brushed the wood before leaving was, went the Celtic the one who advanced in the marker shortly after that they cancelled him a goal to Óscar after hunting a refuse of Ter Stegen, but split from position advanced. A minute afterwards, after an unnecessary loss in the centre of the field, Gabri Veiga controlled a balloon of Seferovic for colarse in the area after surpassing to Alonso and command a finish crossed to win to the guardameta German.

Gabri Veiga 'Consecrate' in front of the Barça

After the resumption, the history did not change a lot because it was the Celtic the one who followed proposing in rival field forcing in the recoveries and going out in a torrent with speed, but without clear occasions of face to Ter Stegen. The Barça, by his part, showed more comfortable with the shrinking of Eric García in his position, leaving the pivote to Of Jong, so that Gavi tried to put an extra speed in the centre of the field, but except the possession of the balloon, the Barcelona were not having clear options of danger.

In front of the passivity of the culés and almost without wanting to, Gabri Veiga sentenced the party with a doublet that certified the salvation of the Celtic in this campaign. The canterano 'celestial' pretended to send a centre to the second stick for the finish of some mate, but his shot finish poisoning until giving in the long stick. Iñaki Crag, that there was ingresado two minutes before, tried to clear, but the balloon finish colándose inside without compassion.

The history, fortunately for the Barça, did not finish there. And it is that, touched by the magic wand to mark his third goal in the last two parties, Ansu Fati recortó distances in the marker after hunting in the small area a centre of Ousmane Dembélé. Villar Did not decide to go out to try clear and, free of marks, the '10' cabeceó to nail the balloon in the deepest of the network.
