In the last few weeks it ran right at Barcelona, the team has come in ride under Xavi. None of the last twelve mandatory games was lost, there were nine victories and three draws. A highlight then last weekend in the Bernabeu, as rival Real Madrid was shown in 4: 0. After this demonstration, there was only one change, Dani Alves extruded Garcia on the bench. The Brazilian played as usual right back, Araujo moved into the internal defense.
With a victory against Seville Barça had the chance to take second place. In this top game from La Liga, a tough first half developed. Barcelona made a little more for the game, but in the last third it remained too inaccurate to seriously ask Seville from problems. Ferran Torres tried it by throttling, which was too high (8.). The guests from Andalusia were defensively very neat, but forward was almost nothing.
Shortly before the break, the households pressed again: Dembelé made out of his free header too little, Koundé rescued in the middle of Aubemeyang (44.), just before the break, guest keeper bono was against Aubameyang on the post (45. + 1). Thus, it went to the cabins.
Barça turns after the break
After the break, the game took a quarter of an hour to get on operating temperature. Then, above all, Barça turned on, Ferran Torres’ direct acceptance parished bono (63.). On the opposite side, Rakitic recorded the best chance of Andalusians throughout the game, his free kick clapped the torn net (66.). Fortan only played the householders, Piqué’s header landed on the latte (69th).
The 1-0 for Barcelona was in the air – and it also fell in the air: Pedri pulled up in front of the penalty area twice, thereby leaving two opponents into the empty slide – and then hit dry and placed in the left corner (72nd). This ingenious moment of the young Spaniard brought the Bluegranana on the winning road, from which she did not dissuade anymore. Of a total weak Seville, almost nothing more, Ferran Torres missed the premature decision (77.) in the final period.
The highly deserved threesome Barcelona still remained. That was also because Ter Stegen shortly before the end his mistake himself well well made and the shot parished by the Ex-Bremer Augustinsson (90. + 2). Thus, Barça built his series (13 competitors unbeaten) and is equipped for the first leg of the Europa League quarter-final on Thursday (21 clock, live! Bei Ferran Torres) in Frankfurt.
