Lionel Messi gives Ronald Koeman second win at Barcelona | Football


Lionel Messi scored twice at the Estadi Johan Cruyff. Phillipe Coutinho opened the score for the home team, where Frenkie de Jong had a starting place. Messi and De Jong were allowed to leave fifteen minutes before the end, together with seven other teammates.

Barcelona already won an exhibition game against Gimnàstic de Tarragona on Saturday (3-1). The number 2 of last season in La Liga opens the competition on September 27 with a match against Villarreal.

Frenkie de Jong is chased by Jordi Calavera.

Luis Suárez and Arturo Vidal were missing from Barcelona. Both players seem to no longer appear in Koeman’s plans. Internazionale is interested in Vidal. Suárez seemed to be on his way to Juventus, but that transfer threatens to backfire because the attacker from Uruguay has to wait too long for an Italian passport. He would therefore no longer be able to play in the Champions League and therefore be less interesting for the champions of the Serie A.
