The FC Barcelona goes out victorious of the meeting in front of the Athletic with one of the best performances in what it goes of season. In a party that went of but to less, to the culés sufficed them the goal of Joao Félix in the first part to achieve some 3 very valuable points. Like this we saw to the players blaugranas after the recital lived in Lluís Companys.
Iñaki Crag: Heroic
Another exhibition of the Alicante in his third consecutive titularity, reaffirming his skill under sticks. His exert included two remarkable interventions, the first in the minute 79 when, after a free shot executed by Memphis headed to the right square, Crag elevated in the skies of Montjuïc to make a spectacular stop.

Jules Koundé: Delivered
In this occasion, played from the side and had an exert stood out in the green of Montjuïc. It showed hit so much in attack as in defence, showing his spirit combativo when litigating by a lot of balls and deliver entirely. It has left clear that, when it touches him play in the side, fulfils with grow and was one more in the solid defensive block that it was the Barça in front of the Athletic.
It acted like the main leader of the defence, showing once again why carries the bracelet. After some parties splitting from the side, returned to his natural position, where evidenció that the Uruguayan feels more comfortable. It played a vital paper so much in the organisation of the team as in the resistance to the result when the colchoneros intensified his pressure in the second half.
It resulted to be one of the surprises in the alignment, since it expected that it played Iñigo. However, some annoyances during the warming left out of the party to the player of Donosti and forced to the Danish to split from the start. In spite of have not had a lot of minutes this season, the defender was to the height and no desentonó.
I cancel: Comfortable
Although it is not his usual position, the Portuguese went back to exert like left side and did it with the naturalidad of somebody that carries all the life playing in this position. Although it was not so precise as in the party against the Port wine, showed a big level in his incursions and combinations with Joao Félix. Besides, also it was correct in defensive tasks.
Excellent performance of the German, standing out like one of the foundations of the Barça and exerting a vital paper in the creation of played of the team. The exjugador of the City recovered his best form and showed why is one of the preferred of Xavi. His perspicacity in the game generated several dangerous opportunities and showed a perfect connection with Of Jong and Pedri, forming what seems to be the midfield of gala of the Barcelona.
The Canarian exerted his paper of suitable way in the centre of the field, in a party that went of less to more for him. After a first-half in which Gündogan and Of Jong carried the reins in the centre of the field, Pedri ingresó to the field in the second half with many win and noticed his impact. From the second half, the '8' improved notably and caused several problems to the colchoneros.

Excellent performance of the Dutch, undoubtedly one of the stood out of the meeting. It distributed the game and organised to the team of punctilious way, exerting as the director of orchestra of the best Barça of the season. It was crucial so much in defensive works as in the changes of game, generating restlessness between the mediocentros of the Athletic, those who practically could not detain it.
A true puñal in the right extreme, exerted a crucial paper in the played of attack. In addition to providing the assistance for the goal of Joao Félix, also had several clear opportunities thanks to his big exert in the band. It saw him comfortable and with win to cause damage, offering an authentic show of dribles and dribblings. Bravo by the Brazilian player.
Again it was absent in the terrain of game and was not so effective as it is used to to be it. It concluded the party without making any shot to door, being the less stood out of the three players of attack. Although it attained to cause annoyances in some occasions to the defenders of the Athletic, the performance of the Pole resulted again insufficient and did not do a good party.
Joao Félix: Jugón
Undoubtedly, the protagonist of the meeting. It fulfilled with the expectations when marking, following the rule of the ex. Besides, it celebrated efusivamente, leaving clear it agusto that it is in Barcelona. It showed extremely participatory in the game, baffling to the rival players that him soltaron the foot in more than an occasion.
