already the music sounds on spotify Camp Nou Celestial Music: The Rock and Roll of Lewandowski, the delicious opera de Pedri, the samba of Raphinha or the waltz of Dembélé, which he reinterprets, with a wide repertoire of songs, accompany Barcelona in their start of season in front of his fans. There was a brace from Pedri with an assist brace from Lewandowski, which had opened victory very quickly, goals and even three shots at the post from Xavi’s team, who fought and settled their tournament in less than twenty minutes. Flexed positions were in evidence with the goal of Aubameyang and Frenkie de Jong, he received the love of the fans in a great second half, signed with a great goal, the sixth.
The Lewandowski’s Gunpowder launched the festival of a Barcelona who, a week before the start of the competition, confirmed many of the good things talked about during the pre-season and discovered new ones, such as the Lewandowski-Pedri connection. One of the best players in the world and one of the best gunmen. They have been found and it can be devastating. For their part, Raphinha and Dembélé reaffirmed their state of grace. They entered like arrows on the flanks, while Pedri made sense of what Xavi wants from the interiors: that they reach vertical space.
The Gamper It had become in its preparations in a moving and well-deserved tribute to Dani Alves, with the presence of all the former teammates and the president on the pitch. between recognition to the Brazilian and who decided to wait to see if the stands filled up a little more, the ‘show’ started a little later. And those fans who arrived at the last minute almost lost the first goal. A historic goal.
Not even three minutes had passed when Lewandowski, bewitched at the gate during the pre-season tour, it was finally created as a goalscorer with Barça. And it was a success. Dembélé and Raphinha, right and left wingers respectively, had already looked for the striker in a clear statement of intent from Barca, but it was Pedri who found the Pole. beautiful collar deep from the canary, the striker overcame the goalkeeper’s exit with a touch and, without an angle after losing verticality, he stopped and with his right hand fired a shot aimed at the opposite post. A beautiful goal that drove Spotify Camp Nou crazy.
After a little over a minute, the roles were reversed and it was Lewandowski who assisted Pedri, also vertically for the arrival of the canary, who dribbled the goal and put the second. After ten minutes, Dembélé completed the third, after several attempts, and signed a crushing start for Barcelona.
Shaken by this departure, the Pumas tried to weather the storm, which for a few moments seemed to calm down. The truce lasted until Lewandowski, who rcaught a vertical pass from Eric, he found Pedri. High heel pass to the canary first after receiving from the central defender, controlled by Pedri sitting central defender Ortiz and a goal.
Another from Pedri and, almost, another from his Polish pal, who finished a cross from Dembélé on the post. The Barcelona was thrown away. And, then, he seemed to feel leniency for a bewildered UNAM in which Alves tried to save the furniture.
Ter Stegen gave a sign of life, to make it clear that Xavi had lined up the goalkeeper, on a shot from Salvio after poor control from Araujo in defense. Barça had raised the foot of the accelerator to avoid making a rival to which the Gamper arrived very large bleed more.
changes are coming
Another Barça, but almost the same efficiency in the second half. At least initially. Aubameyang, playing as a right winger so that Lewandowski could continue in the axis then for Memphis to do so, put the “little hand” five minutes after the break on a pass from Kessie, in a game started with a Frenkie de Jong ready. claimed and acclaimed by the public.
So much, than in an action Dani Alves’ foul on the Dutchman forced fans to believe the culprit was who he was and blamed him for taunts. The Brazilian, however, was substituted at game time and received final applause from his fans.
Despite the changes, Barcelona kept his authority in the game, he didn’t get carried away by the size of the scoreboard and yesterday’s reserves worked to curry favor with their manager. And De Jong completed a great performance as an inside player with the sixth goal, receiving a pass into space, facing the goal and scoring. Up to Iñaki Pena He joined the party with a superb save on the sole stroke of the Pumas.
The competition will be something else Xavi has already fairly clear ideas. In the Gamper, he noted some interesting aspects, but the main thing is that he has a squad, as he wanted, that there is competition in practically all positions and that his approaches, for the moment, are going well: an effective game on the wings, a ‘nine’ of luxury, arrivals from the inside to the space and central with ball exit. Next Saturday is serious, but the symphony is already playing at Spotify Camp Nou.
