  • The referee made the win possible, not Dembele or Puig. Clear handball not given and then a harsh red card giving Barca the win. Right before the Red, Trincao didn't even get a yellow for pushing the player on the counter. Just a horrible/biased Ref....

  • I always get the feeling Alex doesn't like Ousmane. He never seems to praise Dembele when he plays well. Dembele was rated 7.7/10 by Sofascore, the best player on the pitch and Alex is like "Dembele had a frustrating night, he hasn't played well". What a clown😂🤡

    Diego DietdricksDiego Dietdricks13 dagen geleden
  • And Dembele still doesnt get the credit he deserves, that 2nd half was all cause of him, he was pressuring defending, causing 4 free kicks, & even caused a red card for them, was attcaking like crazy, & didnt stop until he scored. Yet they still gotta say messi won that match smh..

  • Do these guys watch Games ? Every Game is played with different kind of approach & you can't win every game with 3-0 Goals. You've to be in the game throughout 90+ minutes to win & any moment can be Decision moment . Messi , FDJ Were stayin low throughout as they were tryin to ignore cards & I don't really trust referees these days either . before VAR I'd still say a person can make mistake but with VAR , they're still same or even worse. Last year was Hoax of bad referee decisions in almost every single league . Juventus , Liverpool ,United , Real . All these teams were favoured & I'm sayin this after watching all those matches. There were different consequences for different teams.

  • Credit to koeman who changed the tactics, went to a back 3 that suits these players. Great work coach should be applauded the most. From where they were few months ago when playing back 4 to where they are now with a back 3 is great work by the coach. He is key to this success coz if this was any other coach i don't think barca would have changed their style. What he did with netherlands and now with barca is just magnificent.
