Raphinha Commissioned during all the summer in leaving clear that his idea goes through to triumph in the FC Barcelona and be an important footballer for Xavi. This Tuesday surely ratified this stage with a big individual performance
Raphinha Had to commission of the right extreme after the injury of Ousmane Dembélé the past season and in spite of the different characteristic of both extremes, the Brazilian approved his duties in the final part of the course, finishing even with double digit in goals and assistances. Now, the French has left and the way is free for a Raphinha that this Tuesday has gone back to show that Xavi can be calm.
And it is that in a meeting where the Barça did not play his best football, the second of consecutive way, the ex Leeds fixed them to him to be very decisive in front of the Mallorca and be main actor in the two so much that achieved the team culé in this day 7. After some doubts in the start of the course, especially by his expulsion in front of the Getafe and back suspension, the Brazilian seems to go back to say that it has to be always title.
A moment of clarity of Raphinha almost changes everything
In a moment in which it seemed that the Barça would leave to the changing rooms losing the meeting, Raphinha contested a balloon and did not surrender until keeping it and remain in a clear position of attack. The played finished with a flawless finish to the long stick of the Balearic goalkeeper and like this the ones of Xavi seemed to understand, by some minutes at least, that the party was 'to shot'.
The own international Brazilian had the 1-2 in his boots, but perhaps by the adrenaline tried a too powerful definition and his finish left above the goal of the Mallorca, in a played that it could have changed the destination of the party. And it is that shortly after it arrived the 2-1 for the local team and the football culé went back to disappear in the beginning of the second time.
Raphinha 'Saved' to Xavi of his first defeat of the course
Finally the footballer of 26 years finished taking advantage of the entry of Lamine Yamal to arm a society that could be more effective that the one who could do with Joao Félix and Ferran, doing so the Barça did not lose his invicto. Goal and assistance for the '11' Barcelona and especially a step forward in showing that the trident of attack with the Portuguese and Lewandowski seems more definite that never.
