FC Barcelona did everything to win in Vitoria, but they collided with Alavés and Pacheco, who saved his team on several occasions. Griezmann tied the initial goal for Rioja, but the Catalans did not hit the shot and added their fourth game in a row without winning
The FC Barcelona saw from practically the first played of the party that win in Mendizorroza did not go to be sew and sing. The vitorianos expected more together and better planted that the Juventus in Champions, and planted face to the Barcelona. But in spite of that push, went the Barça the one who was about to to strike first, thanks to an Ansu Fati that forgave. The canterano, that could be offside, defined badly a genial pass to the gap of Clément Lenglet.
But the ones of Pablo Machín did not take in answering and Edgar Méndez tested to Net after a big against of his team. The carrilero arrived with power to the second stick, but after his long career did not hit to define well in front of the Brazilian, that finished blocándola to two times. This opportunity was a before and afterwards for the Barça, that improved the circulation of balloon and began to dominate with more clarity from the possession.
Leo Messi was about to to mark of fault in the 23, but a defence alavesista took out under sticks avoiding the target. The barcelonistas went to more and to the vitorianos every time cost them more go out rear and gave the feeling that the goal could be when falling. But when better was the Barcelona, arrived the so much of the Alavés after an error in chain of Clément Lenglet, Gerard Hammered and especially Net Walled, that put him in tray the so much to Luis Rioja.
Lenglet Was soft in his dispute with Rioja, the rebound arrived him to Hammered, that without looking happened it to him backwards to a Net that did not expect the pass and finish giving the so much. The Brazilian controlled badly, was very clumsy and the '11' of the Basques finish stealing it to mark to pleasure. They advanced against all prognosis the venues in front of a Barça that complicated the party of the most absurd way possible.
With the 1-0, the culés complained by a possible penalti on Frenkie of Jong, that went clearly displaced inside the area. The Dutch finished of head and from backwards pushed him clearly, preventing him cabecear with comfort. The action was to the limit and the VAR would have to have it at least seen. Nevertheless, the referee did not see at all punishable in direct and from the room VOR neither demanded him so that it saw it in the screen. Played very controversial to less than 10 minutes for the rest.
The changes of Koeman changed the party
Messi went back to have it before the go through the changing rooms, but did not hit in his shot and Pacheco it blocó with great ease. The party did not go well and therefore Koeman decided to touch the team in the rest. The Dutch revolutionised to his entering three changes. Francisco Trincao went in by Lenglet, Pedri by Ousmane Dembélé and Miralem Pjanic by Sergio Busquets. With these replacements, Of Jong happened to the centre of the defence, the same that in Turín after the injury of Ronald Araújo.
The reliefs seated him very well to the Barcelona, that were very near to mark in until two occasions. First it was Messi the one who tested to Pacheco once again, but the put took it out to corner with tarpaulin. Shortly after, another played of the rosarino arrived to Ansu, that threw him a spectacular pipe to his pair and gave the pass of the death. Unfortunately for the Catalans, anybody finished and the action finish in the limbo.
The own Hispanic-guinean went back to have it, but his centre-kick did not find door. The cumpleañero, that this Saturday fulfilled the majority of age, improved a lot of in the second time and turned into the weapon that needed the Barcelona. The culés improved by moments and the goal was baking little by little, but was the expulsion of Jota Peleteiro what facilitated the target. The Galician autoexpulsó when raising a lot the leg and do a clear dangerous game by which saw the second yellow.
Griezmann empató For the Barcelona
Hardly a minute after the expulsion, the Barcelona at last empató thanks to an error in defence of the Alavés. A rebound of Tomás Pina was to the French, that defined of an exquisite form hammering the ball in front of Pacheco. The so much of the equalised gave even more strengths to the Barcelona, but the archer of the alavesistas went back to cover another shot of Messi with a paradón glorious.
After the tie began the siege of the Barça, that saw as they cancelled him the 1-2 to Griezmann by an offside milimétrico of Trincao in the previous pass. Fati Also tried it with a good shot by high that refused by enésima time the safe guardameta of the vitorianos. But the push of the blaugrana began to be more with heart that head and the alavesistas defended with nails and teeth to the end.
To the culés cancelled him another goal by clear offside of Messi, but not even like this surrendered. Sergiño Dest And Pjanic went back to test to Pacheco, that went a wall and went back to save to his. The ones of Koeman tried it one and again to the end, with several final attempts of Leo, but the Alavés threw of character and knew to suffer it indecible to take out a point. Finally, fourth prick been still in League of the Barcelona, that carries already four meetings without winning.
