The FC Barcelona competed and remained on the way by very little in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain. The ones of Xavi gave all and deserved the victory in front of the Real Madrid. The goleadores were Vinicius, Of Jong, Benzema, Ansu Fati and Valverde
The FC Barcelona shows that yes there is 'effect Xavi' and that this team does not have at all that see with which was does some months. They have known to plant expensive and, especially, react in front of the requirements of the rival. And this already is a big attainment. In the Classical, against the Real Madrid, has been like this and have lived several parties in one, going of less to more than surprising way and with an Ansu Fati that has showed, again, that is the present and future of the club. It was missing the victory and the pass to the final, but the staged of the culés has been, probably, the best of the season (or one of the best).
It is necessary to recognise that the first minutes of the clash were for the Madrid. Benzema, Vinícius and Asensio tested dangerous goal and next. The French forward tried a finish from the frontal that left diverted. Afterwards it was Asensio shot too high to avoid the danger. Later it was the Brazilian happened to scene before the chamber of hour, with a 'kick' strong that Ter Stegen cut across with ease, after a big desmarque in which Luka Modric found to Vinícius.
Ronald Araújo tried to retain to the rival attacker, but finished hurting to the started. The Madrid was playing too comfortable and Asensio signed the fourth opportunity in 20 minutes. After a played offensive of the Barça, in a corner, the Madrid went out in career with a contragolpe powerful. Courtois Put to run to Benzema, touched to Vini and this went like a train so that the Balearic finished without finding goal.
The goal of 'Vini' caused the wake up of the Barça
The Madrid was warning and arrived the opportunity of gold for the ones of 'Carletto' Ancelotti. In the equator of the first part. Sergio Busquets transitaba with the ball in the medullary and took more than the account in associating with a mate. For his bad fortune, appeared an intelligent Benzema, from backwards, to snatch him the leather. It found in depth to 'Vini', that held the pressure of Araújo to beat to pleasure to Ter Stegen and put the 0-1.
It was the touch of attention that needed the culés and worked. With the marker against, the Barça arrived to the party and began no only to show command with the balloon, but also to threaten the area of Courtois. Luuk Of Jong was being, again, the most active in attack and all the occasions went by his boots. Dembélé Sent him a lateral centre and finished, very centred, to the hands of the guardameta Belgian. Of a new centre, this time from the left, the Dutch went back to shoot to the gloves of the '1' madridista.
To the third was the defeated and the fortune was of the side of the barcelonistas. Frenkie Of Jong finished to backwards, by the left band, to find to Dembélé, that caracoleó to Carvajal and put a centre raso to the heart of the area girl. There it found to Luuk of Jong. It did not attain to finish but when Militao tried to clear, commanded it to the leg of the Dutch so that with the rebound, the balloon colara in the goal. The Barça, that came up, achieved a tie of gold to the edge of the rest.
Command culé; reaction of Benzema
In the beginning of the second part, the ones of Xavi went in in the same dynamics, with a pressure asfixiante and completing played. The Madrid was very, very uncomfortable and without opportunities, in front of a Barça that it wanted to change the course of the history. The entry to the field of Pedri gave break to the Barça and his presence gave effect immediately. First it was a pass to Dembélé that finish with a kick, that went through up, and afterwards was the own midfield player the one who tested fortune with a shot from the fronta, very powerful, that left brushing the stick.
'Dembouz' Went back to encourage with a new centre/kick to the area of Courtois so that Luuk of Jong put the head, but did not achieve to give him direction. The Barça followed dominating, with incursions of Dembélé, but the Madrid began to win more metres and, at least, incomodar to the Barcelona, but without achieving finish the played. And the Barça, after forgiving so much and not to advance, paid expensive. Karim Benzema warned and 'killed', as it has accustomed in this season. First it had an oporrunidad very clear after a pass of Rodrygo to his desmarque so that it controlled, turned , 'tricked' to Araújo and kicked to the left stick. The Barça saved .
To the following, however, did not go like this. Ferland Mendy 'Broke' to Mendy, put it atás to a Benzema that found only to finish. It looked for the long stick and Ter Stegen signed a paradón, but in the refuse the spherical fell him to Carvajal, that put it down and Benzema, in mouth of goal and very very positioned, pushed it to the network to put the painful 1-2.
Ansu Fati Forces the extention... And result inmerecido
The Barça did not surrender and that was the best news. Ten minutes after the so much of Benzema, appeared the 'wonder kid' of the Barcelona picture that, as it accustoms, is decisive. Jordi Alba sent a big centre to the area to the that did not know to answer an asleep Militãor. Ansu Fati Won him the space and cabeceó to pleasure to the network to sign the tables, again. It was the step so that the Madrid 'broke'.
The equality kept in the statutory time and the so much of Ansu Fati forced the extention. The Barça went back to go out better to the field and Abde was the first in warning with a big head butt to the second stick of Courtois, but left was. The fault of forcefulness, by enésima time, punished to the culés. In the 98' and when better were the Barcelona, appeared the Madrid with a contrgolpe lethal. Kroos Yielded to Casemiro and the Brazilian went out in vertical, opened for Rodrygo, that went in like a bullet to go in to the area, give it to 'Viní', that left it happen to Valverde so that the charrúa arrived by behind and fusilara to Ter Stegen.
The party was a gone and turn, but the party lost emotion and occasions... Until the final minutes. The Barça did not lose the course, but the tiredness was happening bill. Rodrygo Had the sentence in his boots, in a one against one, to close a show in Riad, very far of house, that finish with the Madrid in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain. The Barcelona picture remains , however, with the feelings, that are very good. It is the principle of a new era.
