The culés remained with the leadership after imposing to the Villarreal in the City Condal, shortly after a trip of the Athletic of Madrid against the Girona in Montilivi and hours before the Sportive Alavés braked to the Seville in his visit to the stadium of Mendizorroza.

The performance of the Catalans after two days without winning was very serious, and in spite of the attempts of the castellonenses and the narrow distance in the marker -minimum difference until the final instants-, can say that the meeting was controlled. The Camp Nou enjoyed of the beautiful with the luxuries of an inspired Ousmane Dembélé, but also there was an action in which it expressed his dissatisfaction.

It ran the minute 70 and Ernesto Valverde made the first replacement of the duel, and the elected was Arturo Vidal. This decision did not like at all to the terracing, that pitó during some seconds before undoing in applauses to the midfield player, that in the last weeks has found the continuity that looked for.

As it is the infirmary, the best is not running more risks.

Besides, the Glass of the King is just around the corner, and between the rule and the lesionados can that there is not too margin for rotations. This does that any minute of soda for the legs of the theorists titled was more than necessary, what would explain reason has touched him to the sudamericano, that has happened to the list of indisputable.

Two changes hit of Ernesto Valverde

The stadium showed a lot of more understanding little later, when Malcom went out to relieve to Philippe Coutinho, and applauded to rabiar when the bet of Valverde turned into winner. A pass of Leo Messi left only to Carles Aleñá in front of Sergio Asenjo, and to the canterano sufficed him with hammering the leather to mark and sentence the contention. At the end, good feelings and positive conclusions, in spite of some uncomfortable moment in a field of the most demanding.
