‘Can be of value despite its limitations’

The Dutch took the lead role at FC Barcelona on Sunday: Memphis Depay opened the score in the home game with Levante, Luuk de Jong made his first in Catalan service. What does the Spanish press think of the two Orange strikers? FootbalPrimeur makes a round around the fields.
Diario SPORT hands out a 7 twice. The sports newspaper proclaim Memphis as protagonista. He could be found all over the field and did everything he could to go home with a hat-trick. At the hands of Aitor Fernández, he had to do it with only a penalty utilized, but he seems to have taken the upward line again after the previous games. De Jong broke the Barça-ban on Saturday. He has been ridiculed many times in recent times, but has made a goal with great significance. Apart from that, he was also of value in the combination with his fellow players.
According to Mundo Deportivo — which doesn
t hand out numbers — Memphis repacked after a less eradication against Cádiz on Thursday night. He seemed determined to take a rematch and kicked off the accelerator from the outset. Aitor parked another shot and a header of his: an extra goal would have been the icing on the cake after a great performance. Not long after Memphis took advantage of his penalty, De Jong made his first name on behalf of Barça. Finalized neatly, in a competition where he was constantly threatened with his fighting spirit. He showed what he can add to Barcelona despite his technical shortcomings.

The Dutch lion roared again, concludes AS. He was a bit selfish from time to time and overlooked players in a better position. But this is the Memphis fans want to see anyway: ambitious and hungry. The newspaper was amazed in a positive sense at the first hit of De Jong. Curiously enough, it wasnt a header, its strongest point. He also showed his dynamic and offered himself to the full in the sixteen. With matches like this, he can take away the skepticism.
We conclude with two more reports: Memphis gets an 8 from El Desmarque. A brilliant first half of the Dutchman, who had adorned a penalty in no time and played an important role in De Jongs 2-0. The latter gets a 7. He responded to the fierce criticism he received with his first goal on behalf of Barcelona. In the second half he was a little more absent, apart from a good header.
