The FC Barcelona could not happen of the tie in his visit to the Mallorca (2-2). The group blaugrana went back to complete a toneless defensive performance and, in addition to a Raphinha very enchufado, the tremendo wear of Gavi in the half and the stellar apparitions of Lamine Yamal and Fermín López in the final stretch, there was really little that stand out in the visit to Sound Moix. Still like this, the Barça, at least, saved the invicto and, for now, retains the leadership.

As it expected , Xavi Hernández did several 'retouchings' to the eleven culé, giving rest to the pair of head offices (Koundé-Christensen) and to Robert Lewandowski, all headlines in the six previous days of the tournament. Iñigo Martínez premièred like titling beside Ronald Araújo, whereas Raphinha and Ferran Torres went back to the XI to accompany to Joao Félix. In the centre of the field there was not a lot for rotar after the injury of Frenkie of Jong.

You grieve a centre from the right of Raphinha, to the that Ferran Torres did not arrive by little, attained to upset the Balearic bottom.

Ephemeral reaction of the Barça and another costly defensive distraction

First, Gavi filtered a pass that left hand manually to Ferran with Rajkovic, but the guardameta Serbian baled out fast to avoid the so much of the 'Shark'. Four minutes later, Raphinha took advantage of a rebound to recover from the right. The Brazilian had very clear what do since it controlled the balloon: control oriented to the half to take out a zurdazo rasante that beat to Rajkovic to equalise the party. In the following played, Joao Féliz brushed the 1-2 with a derechazo crusader inside the area, but the local goalkeeper avoided the so much of the luso with a big cut across.

The Barça seemed to survive to a first very toneless part thanks to the 'chispazo' of Raphinha, the one who more danger generated in the 45' initial. However, the ones of Javier Aguirre recovered the advantage in the third minute of the six that added the main Alejandro Muñiz Ruiz. After a kickoff of door of Rajkovic, Muriqi combed of head, winning in the jump to Romeu to enable to Abdón Prats. The Spanish forward won him the career to Araújo and defined of right in front of the late exit of a Ter Stegen again dubitativo.

Xavi did not expect too much to move the bench

The second part started unchanged, although the performance blaugrana in Palm invited to do some adjust in defence. Nevertheless, Lewandowski began to heat from the minute 45 and Xavi would not take a lot in putting to the Pole to look for the tie. Also it followed suit Lamine Yamal, expecting his moment while the Barça followed very dense in Sound Moix in front of a Mallorca that presionaba with his block 5-3-2 by all the field.

To fault of ideas, Joao Félix invented a bombazo of half distance in the first balloon that remained him in the complement. Rajkovic Did sight of the derechazo that shuddered the stick before leaving was. In the 58', Xavi did not expect more and put to 'Lewy' by Ferran that it did not participate in any action in the start of the complement. Aguirre followed suit giving entry to the ex 'parakeet' Sergi Darder, replacing to the author of the 2-1, Andón Prats. By his part, the egarense freshened the attack with the income of Lamine and Fermín López by Joao Féliz and the admonished Oriol Romeu.

In the first action of Yamal, arrived the first controversy ofthe night . The juvenile of 16 years desbordó to Crest and fell inside the area. Muñiz Ruiz signalled penalti, but was warned by the VAR to review the played in the monitor, after which the referee opted by not conceding the fault when considering that there was not contact of the Balearic defender.

Fermín appeared to revive to the Barça

From the 70', the Mallorca delayed some metres his lines and the Barça took advantage of to win depth.
