Villarreal CF players lost to FC Barcelona in the match of the 15th round of La Liga. There was a referee scandal in this meeting.
In the first half of the hit match no goals were scored. The fans, however, could not complain about the lack of emotions. The teams created an interesting spectacle.
From the very first moments, there was a lot of turmoil in front of both gates. In the third minute, Ezzalzouli hit the bar with his head, but the opponent’s goalkeeper showed a great parade.
A few moments later, there was a lot of controversy. Pique blocked the ball with his hand after Groeneveld’s shot. However, the judge did not point to any lime, nor did he use the help of the VAR system.
In the 9th minute, Gavi fell into the penalty area and hit the post. A few moments later Depay came face to face with Rugli, but he struck clearly next to the post. The guests tried to bite off. However, Danjuma and Torres were not effective.
The second half started with a strong blow from “Blaugrana”. Depay hit the goalkeeper up close, but Frenkie de Jonga rushed ahead with an effective rebound.
From then on, the pace of the game slowed down a bit. Barcelona successfully neutralized the attacks of its opponents for some time. With a quarter of an hour before the end, the situation changed. Chukwueze used the awkward defensive stance.
The last minutes belonged to the hosts. FC Barcelona desperately accepted further attacks in its own penalty area, but managed to weather the storm.
What’s more – from El Madrigal she took … three points! Just before the end, Ter Stegen sent a long ball into the rivals’ penalty area, there Depay deceived the rivals and directed the ball into the net with cold blood.
The match ended with the score 1: 3. In added time, Philippe Coutinho scored from the penalty spot.
1 – 3
