The French extreme contested the first 45 minutes of the meeting and Ernesto Valverde planted him as 'false 9'. The Frenchman showed very active and participatory during the time that was on the terrain of game, but went back to be little hit in the final metres. It combined well with his mates and left several destellos of quality, but failed the clearest occasion of the first part.

Dembélé Confined inside the area by the right and tried colársela to the archer of the Cartagena, that was smart and finish taking it out to kickoff of corner.
That was the first and the only occasion of which had Dembélé before being substituted.
