Calendar of FC Barcelona

A FC Barcelona of less to more has lived an authentic party in his visit to the Elche. After a beginning of party with a lot of difficulties, the Barcelona finished goleando in the second half, accompanied with a performance sensacional that confirms the good feelings that had left before the stop of selections. The doublet of Robert Lewandowski and the goals of Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres signalled the way to the Barça to add 71 points in League, with 15 of advantage on the Real Madrid.

​​​​​​The Barça knew that his visit to Elche was cheat and that, in spite of treating of the colista of LaLiga, could not go down the policeman. Xavi Hernández bet by a quite alternative alignment with the big novelties of Eric García like pivote or Ansu Fati completing the line of attack. The plan was very clear: have the balloon, shut to the ilicitanos and look for constantly the goal of Edgar Badía to give continuity to the work done before the stop of selections.

The culés no escatimaron efforts and in the Martínez Valero went out to presionar, but without expecting that the ones of Sebastián Beccacece went to show a very worthy version and that went to presionar in contrary field, to the point that in the first part the greater part of the crash played in the Barcelona field, although Robert Lewandowski advanced to his very soon and could have signed a doublet before the rest. The Barça was not especially hit, but yes took advantage of his opportunities to add a new victory in League.

Robert Lewandowski recovers the goal and signals the way

After shy approaches to the area of the ilicitanos a played in which the fortune, but also the tarpaulin, was leading, Robert Lewandowski went back to 'wet' in League for the first time from February. The ariete took advantage of of a fault from the left that hanged Jordi Alba to the second stick for the apparition of Araújo, the one who left it to him of face to the '9'. It controlled with the left leg and shot to goal with the right, with the 'luck' that it rebounded in his left-handed ankle for colarse, with a lot of suspense, to the deepest of the meshes.

It was one of the clearest occasions for the Barça in the first-half. Although they showed very comfortable in the field, yielded a lot of spaces so that the Elche advanced lines and lived constantly in rival area, although without sufficient clarity to put to work to Marc-André ter Stegen. Gumbau Was one of which tested luck with a centre to the area, with the intention that it fell him to Carmona, but before being able to finish of head appeared Marcos Alonso to command it to corner.

Before finish the first-half, and although the ones of Xavi were not very comfortable, had two very clear opportunities to increase the advantage. First Mascarell diverted the balloon 'in extremis' to avoid the finish of Lewandowski and, in the following, the Pole received a centre medidito from the right for the entrance of the forward, only in the heart of the area. The ball remained him something backwards and his finish of head left , by little, above the crossbar.

A golazo of Ansu Fati for the tranquility of the Barça

In the resumption, followed the same plan of the party: a Barcelona picture controller, calmly, but that cost him find the way to sentence the clash... Leaving to the rival 'dream' with the tie. The Elche had his clearer opportunity in the 52', when Carmona left in career with the balloon controlled and to the back of the defenders, but finish falling while it went in to the area and finish lesionándose. Shortly after, Ansu Fati appeared to give the tranquility that his needed.

The '10' began a contragolpe, went in career while Maascarell gave him metres to run, while it backed, with Lewandowski to the another side in case it decided to give the pass. Ansu Fati, however, filled of confidence (the one who so much had been missing him in these last months) to take out a derechazo raso and crusader, out of the area, that went in adjusted to the stick. It was the beginning of the end for a Barça that did big to close the party and direct more, yes can , LaLiga.

Final plácido for a Barça more leader that never

The goal of Ansu Fati injected tranquility to a Barça that finish goleando and liking in the second part to leave with very good feelings of the Martínez Valero, in the previous of a decisive Classical of Glass. So much so they destroyed to an Elche that 'held' what could, but that finish entirely sunk. The culés took advantage of it to sign a goleada sensacional and that leaves clear that, even with a very alternative alignment, can impose.

First it was Gavi that stole a balloon in zone of three chambers to command him a big pass to Lewandowski, the one who like the smartest of the class encaró to the area to beat, with a shot underneath, to Badía. Very shortly after, Ferran Torres was the attendant to complete the póker with a golazo after a definition espectácular: The '9' sent a pass from the medullary for the apparition of the of Foios, that finalised with the left-handed to the left stick, closing like this a very important night for the culés, that went of less to more to leave clear that go to be followed enchufados to the end of League.
