Jordi Alba realised, with the match of this Saturday against Osasuna, his match number 200 in LaLiga with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona. Besides, he was the protagonist of the more sportive play of the duel
The one of this Saturday was not a special party for Jordi Alba regarding result neither individual performance. Yes it was it, however, regarding the statistical plane. The one of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat played at all less than his party 200 with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona in LaLiga. Sure that it would have loved him celebrate it with a victory, but could not be.
The Barcelona left side, formed in the quarry and present in the staff of the first team from the season 2012-13, goes on doing history and adding split with the '18' to the back. The one of this year 2019 is being the eighth campaign of Jordi Alba in the FC Barcelona. During this time, has played 303 duels like culé, delivered of the following way: 200 in League, 58 in Champions, 35 in Glass, 8 in Supercopa of Spain and 2 in the World-wide of Clubs.
It has annotated in the rows of the FC Barcelona a total of 16 goals with the first team, nine of which have arrived in the competition of League. The last was the past week, in the goleada of the ones of Ernesto Valverde in front of the Real Betis (5-2) in the Camp Nou. Jordi Alba has played 200 split suspender belts of the 269 possible that could have played in these eight seasons. But his big virtue have not been the goals, but the assistances. 42 since it arrived to the first team culé.
To all this, Jordi Alba has raised five titles of League with the FC Barcelona: 2012-13, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2017-18, 2018-19. And this Saturday, against Osasuna, stood out especially by an action of 'fair-play' that does not be used to to see with frequency in the football of elite, unfortunately. Jordi Alba fell in the interior of the area and, far to boost a possible error of the referee, raised the finger and denied that there was any type of penalti.
An action of sportsmanship that honours to Jordi Alba, and that cost him the applauses of the terracing of The Sadar, that valued positively his gesture taking into account the a lot of that has established the 'theatre' and the fault of 'fair-play' in the parties of elite. It is not the style of Jordi Alba, and like this showed it this Saturday.
Junior, healthy competition for Jordi Alba
Of face to this season 2019-20 that recently finish to begin, the one of L'Hospitalet wishes to follow accumulating successes and good performances in the left side of the FC Barcelona. Has now the competition of Junior Firpo, but does not foresee that the Hispanic-dominican can snatch him the titularity in the short term. It will have to expect his moment, and this could take. Because, to his 30 years, Jordi Alba follows being to a level more than remarkable.
