Jordi Alba completed a sensational first half against the Real Sociedad, scoring the goal of the tie and assisting minutes afterwards to Frenkie de Jong
The FC Barcelona had begun the party against the Real Sociedad reflecting a big intensity in the game, and showing the ambition to look for constantly the contrary goal. There was precision in the combinations, criterion in the decisions and also found depth to generate clear occasions of danger. Griezmann And Braithwaite, in fact, starred two shots that no colaron in put it of Remiro by very little.
The one of the French stamped in the crossbar, whereas the one of the Danish went to the clouds when it was in front of the goal. For I satisfy, it went the Real Sociedad the one who advanced in the marker in the minute 27, after an unfit defensive that left only to Willian José to finish a pass of the death of Portu.
The Barcelona, in any case, did not surrender and followed looking for fortune up, guided by the inspiration and motivation of his men. And especially of one: Jordi Alba no only marked a golazo in the minute 31, but before it finished the first-half, in the 43', assisted to Frenkie of Jong so that the Dutch midfield player finished entirely only in the small area.
The goal was cancelled initially by the referee, that signalled offside to instances of the decision of the judge of line, that had raised the pennant. The VAR, luckily for the culés, took part to show that the target had been valid, since a defender 'txuri urdin' broke the presumptive offside of Frenkie of Jong, entirely non-existent. Like this the things, the so much went up to the electronic and the Barça confirmed the traced back.
Of Jong, an important goal for him and for the team
It was one of these goals that hurt, to the edge of the rest, and the first that annotates Of Jong this season 2020-21 with the FC Barcelona. The Dutch midfield player, with the performance of this Wednesday in front of the Real Sociedad, accumulates two good consecutive parties and it will be necessary to see if there is a turning point in contrast with his previous performances this campaign, when it was not to the level that expects of him.
So much the Dutch like other players of the team culé, Jordi Alba, Messi and Pedri between them, improved the level of previous commitments and were key so that, to the term of the ninety minutes, the Barcelona tieed up the three points in the Camp Nou. A triumph that already approaches to the first positions of the table and that puts him of full in the fight by the title of LaLiga Santander.
