La Liga : Luuk de Jong inspires decaffeinated and exhausted Barça

by Kolkata Today

The Blaugrana, with 16 health issues , save the triumph in Mallorca with a titanic effort.

Football is so unpredictable that it has incredible and unexpected blows. Their ways are inscrutable. FC Barcelona with more injuries and Covid19 issues  and many strangers ended up winning a very decaffeinated match in Mallorca. He scored a goal when the first part died, which is what his batteries lasted at the beginning of the year, and ended up saving the triumph with a titanic effort. A stop by Ter Stegen at close range with the time fulfilled was worth as much or more than Luuk de Jong’s goal, turned into an unexpected stylus. Seeing to believe. Barça is already fifth and only one point from the Champions League zone.

Xavi did not find it funny to have to play in Mallorca with three quarters of the team in Barcelona, between confined, injured, sanctioned, unregistered and Demir solving his future. He even talked about the adulterating competition. But once he took the flight to the island, in the stadium and on the grass, his team insisted on the idea that it already bore fruit in front of Elche and Pizjuán.

The coach opted for the most logical eleven within the precariousness.
he suffered from elements but some surprises were still saved, such as placing Araújo as a left side to leave Mingueza on the right. Perhaps changing bands would have been more natural for both of them but it was their way of prioritising the good centres that Santa Perpètua de la Mogoda takes out. The match proved him right because Mingueza, who fell from the start after the derby in which Xavi debuted, was key in attending from his lane in 0-1. Terrassa’s brain knows some football.

Irreducible in its beginnings, Barça planted the very advanced Defence and set out to play on the opposite field. Obviously, with the difficulties and problems involved in having a team of circumstances and unpublished. Without Busquets or Gavi, it was expected to see Frenkie de Jong’s response and the appearance of Riqui Puig, who had not yet started in any of the 24 games of the season.

Reunion with the goal for Luuk de Jong

If seeing the centre trying to imitate Koeman is strange, it is more so to depend on Luuk de Jong. More than one remembered that the wood prevented Dembélé from winning goal at Pizjuán in the last match of 2021 when in the first course of 2022 the post and the crossbar frustrated the tulip striker, who first stretched his leg to get ahead of the Defence and surprise Reina and then successfully tested a Chilean who made the goal tremble.That centre was already Mingueza, who at the edge of the break looked again for the head of the Dutchman, his theoretical favourite play. It seemed that the centre was long but not for De Jong, who put his head and took advantage of a bad exit from the goalkeeper to score his second Blaugrana goal that closed a good first half.

Ter Stegen, a stop that is worth 3 points

As the minutes passed, Barcelona felt less controlled the situation and realised that it could barely refresh the team, conditioned by the rule of the 7 chips of the first team. Physically, he suffered. Álvaro Sanz and Estanis Pedrola, another youth, debuted but forcibly replacing Nico and Ilias. And Mingueza, with cramps, had to be replaced by Lenglet. Luuk de Jong, very tired, had no one to give him relief.
