Barcelona wins, De Jong and Memphis goals

FC Barcelona has also turned its second league match under trainer Xavi into a victory, courtesy of two Dutch people. Frenkie de Jong opened the score, Villarreal came to 1-1, but Memphis Depay made a win just in time: 1-3 it ended up being.
Xavi once again surprised by drafting a youth player: Abde Ezzalzouli. The attacker had almost immediate success, but that was prevented by a handsome save by Villarreal goalkeeper Gerónimo Rulli. The odds continued to come — led by De Jong — but Gavi and Memphis Depay couldn‘t disguise Rulli either. Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld became promising on behalf of the home team in the impetuous opening phase, but Gerard Piqué threw himself in front of the Orange international shot.

Shortly after halftime, the Barcelona stowed into light purple was still ahead. De Jong was able to put a shot cross by Jordi Alba into the empty goal, had to wait a while for the judgment of the VAR and was still able to cheer: 0-1. Barça was unable to maintain his control, had to deteriorate further in the final phase and Villarreal came up fifteen minutes before time equal height. Danjuma released Samuel Chukwueze and the Nigerian passed Marc-André ter Sgen.

There‘s the equalizer! ⚽ Villarreal is earned at an equal level via substitute Chukwueze at denying Danjuma 🔥 #ZiggoSport #LaLiga #VillarrealBarça #MotD pic.twitter.com/PFbbYjLoSS

El Submarino Amarillo had the most over at the final stage and Barcelona had to play out the game on the gums. Nevertheless, a sparing dropout in the final phase still led to the 1-2: Memphis took advantage of a mistake by Pervis Estupiñán, replayed Raúl Albiol and Rulli and made the winning. Philippe Coutinho even made 1-3 out of a penalty, Barça does not immediately get along with this and remains seventh, but still has a catch up round. In the coming midweek, Xavi’s team will be free, then Real Betis home and the crucial Champions League match against Bayern Munich awaits.

Unbelievable 🤯 Barça is no longer in use against Villarreal, but Memphis makes it 2-1 to indicate note bene Ter Sagen! 🔥 What a handsome goal from the Dutchman 👌 #ZiggoSport #LaLiga #VillarrealBarça #MotD pic.twitter.com/epsFWnaoJD
