Martin Braithwaite debuted this Sunday in a Clásico, and unfortunately he lived a bittersweet match. The danish could score and put Barça ahead, but Thibaut Courtois stopped him and shortly after he failed in the Real Madrid 1-0 play
The FC Barcelona lost this Sunday the Classical of Santiago Bernabéu, and remains without margin of error in a League that puts more than face for the Real Madrid. The pupilos of Zinedine Zidane awarded the 'goal average' individual and sustain a leadership of a point, but still there is 36 more at stake in the next 12 days and the Catalans do not have thought to surrender. This yes, the defeat in the capital will be difficult to assume.
One of the protagonists of the crash was Martin Braithwaite, that premièred in an appointment of this magnitude. The recently arrived accumulated five commitments against the whites in his stage in the Leganés, in which it had harvested three defeats, a tie and a victory. Precisely, in the triumph in the turn of eighth of final of the Glass of the King 2018-19, the one of Esbjerg left his footprint, since it annotated the so much of the 1-0 definite.
This time, the Danish had to expect his turn in the bench, because like this it marked it the strategy of Quique Setién. The one of Santander did not want to expose to the counterattacks madridistas and preferred to bet by a todoterreno like Arturo Vidal, to help to Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann and in passing armour the medullary. In the second half, this yes, stepped advance and withdrew to the Chilean to give entrance to the Scandinavian.
The tip was very near to advance to the culés in the marker, but Thibaut Courtois won him miraculously the hand manually. A career by the right-handed lane left him in good position and with a latigazo tried to beat to the guardameta, that had the luck of his side. Although the shot surpassed him, diverted it the sufficient as so that it did not keep the direction to the goal and his defences arrived to time to clear.
The attacker put one of cal and one of sand, since instants after his occasion, failed in the played that gave advantage to the Real Madrid. Arthur left time and space to Toni Kroos to think and this took out of the basket a glorious assistance for Vinicius. With Nélson Semedo covering to Karim Benzema, the Brazilian won him the back to Braithwaite and benefited of a rebound in Gerard Hammered so that his shot beat to Marc-André ter Stegen and finish at the bottom of the networks.
Braithwaite Help a lot to the Barça
Hardly it has played some minutes delivered in two meetings, but Braithwaite already has left clear that it can help a lot to the Barça. Without Luis Suárez like reference, the Barcelona are having problems in the offensive plot, but his efusividad has helped already to generate important opportunities. The Danish is fast, vertical and has skill for the desmarque, what could be determinant in a league that goes to last 12 parties. His goals and assistances have to suppose an indispensable support in the fight by the title.
