Calendar of FC Barcelona

When the rival keeps the high pressure, to the FC Barcelona of Koeman costs him surpass the centre of the field and in Saint Mamés was not the exception. The ones of Marcelino touched the 'key' sensitive of of the blaugrana and were very near to remain with the victory in a night of 'nightmare' for the culés thanks to a goal of Íñigo Martínez, in front of the so much milagroso of Memphis. From the first compasses of the party, cornered them in his field, approaching constantly to the area of a Net that was very nervous and leaving 'details' that concerned to the culés. The Athletic left clear his intentions: they wanted to leave backwards his tie in front of the Elche of the first day and complicate him the watched to the visitors.

The of the bilbaínos was pressure and theft, of immediate way, during the first minutes, but without necessarily generate clear occasions. The Barça wanted to put in the party and Martin Braithwaite failed an unforgivable occasion that was a safe goal. Memphis Signed a jugadón, putting to Martínez in a wrap, put it to him backwards to the Danish and, practicamente alone to finish to pleasure, commanded the spherical above the arguero.

The 'lions' began to be masters and gentlemen of the party, with a pressure asfixiante and leaving occasion after another in Saint Mamés. One of the clearest was a finish of Sancet after a recovery of the Athletic in contrary field, that Muniain put in the point penalti. The one of Pamplona appeared to control the balloon and to the half turn stuck a big derechazo that finished striking (of miracle) in the crossbar, with a Net in way statue.

To the Barça was costing him too much go out of his field, in front of some 'rojiblancos' that they wanted to do roar to his stadium. Frenkie Of Jong dressed of 'hero' to save in extremis a shot to bocarrajo of Iñaki Williams after a failure of Net. The bilbaíno had another opportunity afterwards, with a finish of head very forced after a good centre of Berenguer. The pressure asfixiante of the ones of Marcelino was 'punishing' to the culés (more the fault of precision) and were saving that the venues opened in the electronic.

The controversy of the party was served when, in the time added of the first part, Martínez Munuera cancelled a goal of Ronald Araújo by a previous fault of Martin Braithwaite on Balenziaga, too slight to be punished. The charrúa signed a Chilean average that coló in the goal of Agirrezabala, that little could do to detain the shot.

'Punishment' of the Athletic... And Memphis to the rescue!

In the second part, the ones of Marcelino went out very 'mandones' and warned from the first instants to the Barça. Iñaki Williams, by enésima time in the night, won him the position to Eric García, went out Net and the balloon remained died in the area. Berenger Took advantage of to strike to empty door Araújo dressed of 'saint' again to save to his low sticks. The anteroom of the nightmare for the culés.

After a kickoff of corner of the bilbaínos, the balloon was to the first stick, where expected attentive Íñigo Martínez, winning him also the position to Eric (goes of Saint Mamés with nightmares!) And it connected a precise head butt to win without complication any to open the tin in Saint Mamés. The Barça tried to react, shyly, with a finish of Sergiño Dest that covered without problems Agirrezabala.

Net 'redeemed' of his errors with two interventions milagrosas, when more comfortable was the Bilbao. First it went out of the area to divert 'in extremis' a balloon filtered that was about to to hunt Williams. Almost immediately, the Brazilian diverted a powerful shot of Sancet from the frontal. The Barça reacted momentáneamente and Memphis signed a true golazo for 'save' the point in the Cathedral and première like goleador.

The culés recovered in the centre of the field and initiated a contragolpe fantastic to open the band to a Memphis that controlled, raised the head and connected a zurdazo very powerful impossible to detain for Agirrezabala. The Dutch, that when it appears is pure magic, dressed of hero for the culés in a moment more than necessary.

More than the result, the party that has cuajado the Barça in Saint Mamés lights the alarms in the barcelonismo. The ones of Koeman have been very desconectado, with a centre of the field without lights and a defensive saga that left too many doubts and 'gifts' to the rivals. Still there is long to rectify the errors, but the true is that it is a party (again, further of the result) that can not repeat if the culés want to litigate by the titles.
