Maxi Gómez was one of the most stood out players in the Celtic-Barça. The charrúa marked a goal and litigated with the central culés all the crash. It does time was one of the futuribles of the Barcelona and in this party showed all his repertoire as '9' in Balaídos
The FC Barcelona went out in Balaídos with nine acting usual and only two footballers that have been headlines along good part of the season. Arthur and Dembélé had to mark the difference in front of the Celtic, but the Brazilian could not impose in the centre of the field and the French left lesionado to the few minutes to begin the meeting in Vigo.
The Barça had the balloon, but practically did not generate danger in the 90 minutes of crash. The Celtic, instead, yes created more danger and at the end finished carrying the three points in front of the Barcelona. Iago Sails, of penalti, and Maxi Gómez, went the authors of the two goals of the Galicians, that left the practically closed permanence in front of the Catalans.
Speaking already of the forward charrúa, the born player in New Paysandú was a nuisance for the central culés during all the party. The fornido goleador of the Celtic was related with the FC Barcelona during several months in the past and in this crash showed why. It took out his best qualities to relucir and did all what better gives him : it litigated, it went to the crash, held the balloon and marked a goal of 'killer' total.
The 1-0 was work of Maxi, that advanced to the defence blaugrana inside the area to command the balloon at the end of the meshes with a good volley. The balloon was to the first stick, but Cillessen did not have time to arrive and take out the occasion. It was a finish mark of the house, of those that do that the Uruguayan was so decisive inside the area. It is one of the best tips for this direct game and of centres that there is in LaLiga Santander and went back it to show in front of the Barça.
The reality is that the style of Maxi Gómez does him not being the ideal forward for the Barça of touch and possession that has seen along the last decade. Probably therefore it could have descartado his signing. But with a direct and practical Barcelona like the one of Ernesto Valverde could be a very useful tip going out from the second unit. Has finish, goal and would be a good alternative to Luis Suárez.
The Barcelona follows looking for leading
During months the Barça has been looking for a tip of guarantees for the next campaign, but for the moment has not given with the ideal candidate. Griezmann, Jovic or Rashford have sounded, but by a reason or another seems that any has cuajado. It says that the culés even could pose expect another year for fichar to a goleador of level. But for the moment they are all rumours and it will be necessary to expect to see what does the club in the next market of signings of summer.
