In recent years, Barcelona has been regularly knocked out in Vigo, but this time the Catalans got off the starting blocks. Ansu Fati, who also scored two goals against Villarreal (4-0) last weekend, opened the score in the eleventh minute. The 17-year-old child prodigy has already scored three goals this season.
In the remainder of the first half, the lead of the team of basic player Frenkie de Jong was no longer in danger, but the guests still went to the dressing room with a hangover. After referee Carlos Del Cerro Grande first enthusiastically drew a red card for Gerard Piqué (who was canceled due to offside), Clement Lenglet had to leave with red.
Barcelona was angry, but the Frenchman’s two yellow cards didn’t seem to bother. Koeman then took striker Antoine Griezmann to the side before half-time and brought in defender Ronald Araújo.
In the second half, Messi quickly provided what a team that plays with ten men needs: after a flashy attack, the Argentinian worked with the right inside. However, the ball was so changed that the goal was credited to Celta defender Lucas Olaza. Moments later, Messi already seemed to take care of the 0-3, but this time he was narrowly offside.
In injury time, Sergi Roberto made the third Catalan goal after a great action by Messi, which means that Koeman’s team now has seven goals for and zero against in two duels. It is the start that the Dutchman, who has been retired from Orange, will have wished for in the wasp nest that Barcelona can be so often.
Kraker in Champions League
Earlier in the evening, Koeman heard that he has a nice cracker ahead of his team in the group stage of the Champions League. Barcelona will meet the Juventus of Cristiano Ronaldo and Matthijs de Ligt in the group stage of the million ball. Dinamo Kiev and Ferencváros are the other opponents.
Replacement Luuk de Jong scores
Sevilla won for the second time this season in injury time. The team with striker Luuk de Jong in the base defeated Levante 1-0 by a goal in injury time from substitute Youssouf En-Nesyri. Last week, Sevilla also took the victory, visiting Cadiz (1-3), by two late hits. In the first home game of the season for the Europa League winner, it also took more than ninety minutes before the decision was made. Goal scorer En-Nesyri had already replaced De Jong twenty minutes before the end.
Athletic Bilbao trumped
Athletic Bilbao lost 1-0 against Cadiz at home. Unai Lopez, who scored two hits in the right goal last week, scored in his own goal. Cadiz ended the game with nine men after two yellow cards for Carlos Akapo and substitute Alvaro Negredo. The latter only needed ten minutes to be sent off the field again. Negredo received the second yellow card for a schwalbe.
