Espanyol-Barça ended with the azulgrana upset, and Frenkie de Jong's disappointment was almost greater. The dutch midfielder got two yellow caeds and was sent out for the first time in his career
The FC Barcelona 'punctured' in the derbi against the RCD Espanyol, and sees forced to share again the leadership of LaLiga. The Barcelona approached to the three points when Luis Suárez and Arturo Vidal traced back momentáneamente the goal of David López, but with numerical inferiority in the final stretch of the crash, one of the last arreones of the 'pericos' gave back the tables to the marker, since Wu Lei also atinó with the network.
Frenkie Of Jong lived a night to forget in the RCDE Stadium, since it was expelled for the first time in his career. The one of Arkel is not a player that was used to to live to the limit, but in territory espanyolista betrayed him the nerves and finish it paying. His expression after the fault that cost him the red cardboard said it everything. It knew that it had committed a grave error, but already was too late as to be able to react.
The party had opened for the culés after the rest, and the youngster enjoyed of more spaces to attack. The wall that Abelardo designed cracked at the end of the first time, and when the Uruguayan and the Chilean demolished it in the resumption, all was something simpler. His team had of occasions to sentence, and a yellow for cutting one against of Matías Vargas did not seem worrisome in the minute 66.
The disaster produced little later, with an impulsive agarrón on Jonathan Calleri that turned into the second card. The ex of the Ajax went out from the axis of the defence with the balloon controlled and the tireless forward went him to presionar, what, after a half turn fallida, left to the Argentinian with the position won and smart to launch to the goal. The Dutch did not think it and attached him of the T-shirt, and could not do more.
Gerard Hammered was the first in comforting him, but the crack abandoned the field quite 'touched'. The canterano knows that this sin can commit it any one, but with the worked 1-2 in the pocket, it is necessary to encourage for avoiding it. The Barça could finish the work even with a man less, but did not know and in the minute 88 carried a vase of cold water that in the changing room the Dutch was of the first in regretting.
Of Jong is a sensitive drop for the Barça
The next commitment of the Barça will be in the Supercopa of Spain, in which Of Jong will not have to fulfil his sanction. The punishment for the footballer, when having received double yellow, will be equally in LaLiga, in the appointment of the day 20 in the Camp Nou against the Granada. On 19 January, the Catalans will be warned against an opponent that already won them in The Cármenes, and will be able to recover to the young of face to the visit to Valencia in Mestalla the day 25 of the same month.
