What does the Spanish press think of their contributions? VoetbalPrimeur makes a lap around the fields.
Diario SPORT gives a 7 to De Jong, who, according to the newspaper, is transformado after the arrival of Xavi. “In the first half, he unpacked with three gold passes. The arrival of Xavi seems to have changed him, he seems to have regained his joy of playing and flexibility. This promises a lot of good. Memphis initially played unhappy, but was still decisive and also gets a 7. The Dutchman initially did everything wrong and made mistakes that are unforgivable for a number nine of FC Barcelona. He seemed to have fallen from heaven, but still rose up as a saving angel. From hell to heaven so…
El Desmarque has a particular eye for Memphis
s game between minute 1 and minute 87: a 6 is the report grade for the attacker. “He made up for his bad match by sealing the winnings for the Culés just in time, but he had also missed the necessary opportunities imposed for that.” De Jong comes off with an 8 a lot better. “He played freely in midfield, helped his teammates get the necessary opportunities and made his first goal of the season himself. A great match from the Dutchman.

AS does it without report figures, but is clear in its comments. About De Jong, people are a little more critical than the other newspapers. He guarantees talent and quality, but still cant provide the stability his team needs. Against Villarreal, at least he managed to open the score, after a confusing intervention by the VAR.
Memphis
s game already created one surprise after another. “He started with a few childish mistakes and three imposed opportunities: some of his misses are going to be repeated in comedy programs. But then he wanted to take revenge for these stupid things: dressed as Messi, he captivated a great action out of the top hat and helped Barça to an important goal with impressive cold-blooded.”
The comment about De Jong in Mundo Deportivo is concise. “He made the game. He scored and operated Memphis, who, however, missed incomprehensible.” Speaking of Memphis: The way he squandered De Jongs pass was unforgivable. But in the absolute final phase, he repacked himself with a much-needed and extremely valuable goal.
