It couldn't be other player. Leo Messi scored the goal against the Granada, in the minute 75, to guide the FC Barcelona to his first triumph with Quique Setién in the bench
When it seemed that the Barça-Granada directed to the 0-0, the constant possession of the Barcelona group in the aledaños of the rival area, joined to a theft of pillería of Riqui Puig, allowed to Leo Messi annotate the goal of the victory in the minute 76 of party. Riqui Puig carried very few minutes on the lawn but, when being cooler of legs and of mind that the other, was decisive with his recovery.
Quickly it connected with his mates to the edge of the area and, after a series of combinations, Arturo Vidal left the ball of heel to Leo Messi so that this launched one of his traditional "passes to the network". Big collective goal of the FC Barcelona, that already is the number 14 of Leo Messi this season in LaLiga Santander 2019-20, and the 17 in the global of all the competitions.
A target that costs three points or, what is the same, the new coliderato with the Real Madrid at the head of the classification. We remember that the merengues won to the Seville (2-1) in Santiago Bernabéu, by what again both teams keep empatados in the highest.
Going back to Messi and to the Barça of Setién, fits to highlight that the Argentinian was the angular stone in the Barcelona game and the most active footballer of the party, breaking lines when receiving in the centre of the field and progress from here, carrying almost always the Barcelona danger for the goal of Rui Silva. The Barcelona so only achieved to see door when it was with a player more by the expulsion of an effective nazarí with double yellow cardboard.
In spite of the absence of goals, the ones of Setién had of a big quantity of occasions and generated a game something showier that the one who had seen in the last months with Ernesto Valverde in the bench. So only it suffered in defence in some isolated stretch of the meeting, but the Barça attained to carry the weight of the party and surpass to his rival in almost all the facets.
The Barça of Quique Setién begins to carburar
Of course there are a lot of things to improve, but the Barça of Quique Setién begins to take form and, when all the pieces are greased and the concepts assimilated, is possible that avecina a new was of successes and titles in the Camp Nou. For the moment, already it is a good symptom that Setién boost the apparition of players like Ansu Fati, Carles Pérez and Riqui Puig in the eleven culé. And it is had to recover for the cause to others like Umtiti and Arthur. If it achieves to do of the Barcelona a compact team advance and backwards... That the rivals walk with eye.
