Darwin Núñez was the big protagonist of the conclusive victory of the Benfica on the FC Barcelona this past Wednesday. The charrúa annotated two of the three goals that marked the Portuguese, the first and the third, and cuajó an excellent performance to all the levels. The '9' was the greater threat that had the defences of the Barça, moved by all the sides and did a lot of damage at all times.

The Uruguayan left very clear from the beginning of the duel that went to be his night. In the 1-0, won with ease the back of the saga culé, undid with a cut after several bicycles of Eric García and beat with a shot raso and powerful to Ter Stegen, that saw surprised by the action. A golazo of the forward with which showed that has qualities, hunger, character and quality to give the jump sooner that late to a big of Europe.

Already in the second part, the sudamericano was about to to mark after a good desmarque of left to right. Ter Stegen Made a mistake going out to his meeting of risky form, Darwin seated him with a good cut and from enough far and something escorado looked for the target. His shot went to the stick, something that he and all the fans in Give Luz regretted. However, later it redid transforming the maximum penalty by hand of Dest in the definite 3-0.

With his partidazo, the charrúa has gone back to take out to the palestra the interest of the Barcelona by him does no too much. In 2020 it spoke that the blaugrana thought in him as '9' for this summer and even before, when it still played in the Almería, the Catalans asked after he. However, then it could not do and could be now when all cuajara. In 2022, the blaugrana probably will look for a 'killer' youngster and of level and Núñez (22) could give this profile.

If something showed the Uruguayan this Wednesday is that it does not crease in front of the big appointments neither in front of the big rival. Ronald Araújo, that carries a start of bestial campaign, suffered in occasions against his compatriot and did not have it at all easy. Gerard Hammered and especially Eric, happened it quite worse that the '4' and in any moment could brake to the forward of the Benfica, faster, powerful, smart and batallador that they.

This season, is achieving to give a jump in the section goleador and sum already 6 so many in 7 meetings after his last doublet. If it follows like this, it will mark a lot of goals this campaign and perhaps will go back to the diary of a Barça to the that would come him of perlas a '9' of his profile.
