He Barcelona showed that he has already done everything he had to do in this Liga. After winning it nine days ago, those of Xavi Hernandez They are already thinking about the next season and have completely withdrawn from the championship. It can be said that the Barça team is already on vacation. This was taken advantage of by a needy Valladolid to get out of the relegation places by endorsing an unprecedented 3-1, but it could have been two or three more…
The game began with a devilish pace. First with a loud protest from the 23,000 Pucelano fans for the goal that was annulled two days ago against Sevilla in the last second of the first part. Those present rose from their seats to protest against that harmful decision of Ortiz Arias. But without giving time to the partners of the Jose Zorrilla sat in their seats, came the first goal that unleashed madness. The minute 2 of the match had not passed when Christensen he got the ball into his own goal.
Darwin Machís centered from the left side and the ‘killer’ In the middle He was already licking his lips to score his eighth goal with the blanquivioleta shirt. However, the Danish central defender wanted to avoid it, but he was unable to clear correctly, making it 1-0 on the scoreboard. And it is that he Valladolid I was not for parties as he was Barcelona exactly three days ago Camp Nou Those of Pezzolano They only needed to win and they started the clash as any coach would like to do.
He Barcelona He came out asleep, or perhaps with a hangover from celebrating the league title, and they conceded the earliest goal conceded this season after 82 seconds. And it is that, one more day, Ter Stegen He saw his record in danger for becoming the best Zamora of the history of the Liga. To achieve this, he could only concede a maximum of two more goals and add one more clean sheet. That’s why he had put Xavi in the eleven, but in the first minute he already received the first of the two goals that he could only receive.
But the Valladolid gale did not stop there and in minute 20, Eric García, who has not had his best season, He committed another ‘silly’ penalty. In a bad exit ter Stegen, the German left the defensive line in disarray and in this uproar, Gonzalo Plata He was smarter than the ’24’ culé, who ended up stepping on him inside the area. soto degree He did not doubt it and indicated the maximum penalty. In the middle made it 2-0 and the Jose Zorrilla he didn’t believe it.
This match made clear the different objectives and situations that these two teams experienced. He Valladolid had an exacerbated need to add threes in order to stay in First one more year, while the Barcelona I was already thinking more about the next season. The game was going to rest and those of Xavi Hernandez deserved the two goals against and those of Pezzolano He only had 45 more minutes left to achieve something that seemed really difficult before the crash.
And speaking of these different objectives, the Barcelona he only had between eyebrows and eyebrows about getting the record of Ter Stegen as best Zamora of history. When the 22 footballers jumped onto the pitch after the break and the news broke. Xavi Hernández made the decision to protect the German from not conceding more goals and brought on Iñaki Peña, who debuted this season with the shirt of the Barcelona.
Erre que erre
In the second part, the Valladolid He continued erre erre and was not satisfied with 2-0. The pucelanos showed a football inappropriate for a team with tremendous needs such as salvation. It is at these moments when the legs tremble more than ever, but that did not happen for the local players. In fact, at minute 60 Gonzalo Plata sent the ball to the woodwork and the Barcelona it was saved from 3-0.
Shortly after this occasion of the Ecuadorian player, one of the most iconic images that are remembered was produced on a soccer field in this fight against racism. Raphinha was substituted and took off his shirt in the middle of the pitch to show his support for Vinicius: “As long as the color of the skin is more important than the color of the eyes, there will be war,” the shirt said. A gesture that undoubtedly shows the mastery of the Brazilian with his friend.
And it was in 75′ when Gonzalo Plata put the sentence 3-0 for the Valladolid. With suspense and with the approval of the WAS, the León team certified this important victory to get out of relegation. Larin-Silver, Silver-Larin, what a duo Pezzolano has. The two great protagonists of the match were also so in this third goal of the match. The Canadian striker ran into space to assist the Ecuadorian, who did not fail against Iñaki Peña.
He Barcelona cut distances from his Pichichi Lewandowski in the 83rd minute, which with this goal leaves the prize for the top scorer of the Liga. The Pole received a great pass from De Jong into space and sent the ball into the back of the net. 23 league goals, almost nothing.
