Calendar of FC Barcelona

Spain has had to suffer more than the account to add three points, of gold, in front of Scotland that allows him be a step more near of the classification to the Eurocopa 2024. A goal of Álvaro Morata and another of Sancet with 'help' of Porteus, to fault of a chamber of hour for the end, allowed to 'The Red' impose in front of the selection of Steve Clark, that up to now had won all his parties and had a puntaje perfect.

Luis de la Fuente had bet by a very logical alignment, with the presence of three players of the FC Barcelona: Alejandro Balde (sustiuido to the rest), Gavi and Ferran Torres. Of beginning, the seleccionador had bet for positioning to the extremes very by inside and give him amplitude to the sides, but the plan went out half. It was missing a lot dribbling in the first-half and was a very flat Spain that, although it dominated, did not have a lot of clear occasions and was missing him a lot of gunpowder in his attack.

It does not be necessary to overlook that Scotland is an authentic defensive wall and like this have left it clear in this clasificatorio for the Eurocopa. Before visiting The Cartuja, only had fit a goal (of Erling Haaland, of penalti) and were closing him all the doors to Spain and measuring each movement of the attackers. They did not approach a lot to the area of Unai Simón, but neither suffered in excess.

Command without prize for Spain

And it is that the Spaniards had to expect until after the half hour of party to start with to acumuar occasions of face to the to goal, coinciding with a change of role of Gavi that was much more involved in the attack and moving constantly to try desequilibrar. The midfield player of the Barça had found to Oyarzabal in the area, so that topara with Hickey. The refuse hunted it Merino, but his shot refused it the stick. Morata Could open the marker, after a big centre of Dani Carvajal, but the forward of the Atleti was advanced when it nailed the balloon in the deepest of the network.

The first-half of Spain was not excelsa, neither much less, by what Luis de la Fuente did the pertinent modifications. In fact, it changed all the left band and gave entry to the debutante Bryan Saragossa, the one who during the weekend had annotated a doublet to the FC Barcelona. There was much more disequilibrium, but to 'The Red' followed him costing a lot generate occasions of face to the goal... And almost it finishes it paying very expensive.

Of the error of Carvajal to the goal of Morata

After a fault of Dani Carvajal by the right side, McTominay had marked an authentic golazo of direct fault, but the so much did not finish going up to the marker after the review of the referee in the VAR, by a fault on Unai Simón in the played. It was the second opportunity for Spain, that went back to do with the reins of the meeting to try open the marker, without success... Until it appeared Alvaro Morata.

The captain of 'The Red' appeared to a chamber of hour for the end and finished, crusader, a very good centre of Jesús Navas by the right. Morata Gave the key to surpass to a very rocky Scotland and that has a lethal defensive saga that gave war to the end, until Porteus 'helped' to Sancet to mark the second of the night after a big pass of Joselu. Now, and with a party less, the ones of Luis de la Fuente keep in the second square of the group To, with 12 points, two more than Norway. Scotland follows leading with 15 units, but has not been able to complete his aim to concretise the classification to the Euro.
