Champions Class: Paris Holy person Germain versus Barcelona
The Catalan club lost 5-2 on total after a horrible first leg with Lionel Messi conceivably having played his last European counterpart for the club.
Try not to leave me along these lines
Anyway, is that it at that point?
Have we truly seen Lionel Messi’s last at any point Champions Group game for Barcelona?
Every one of the signs would propose that we have, and if the Ballon d’Or victor truly leaves when his agreement’s up toward the finish of the period, this was not the fantasy finishing we had expected.
This Barça side are a husk of the one that overwhelmed Europe toward the beginning of the most recent decade and required their charm to draw out motivation time and again.
Yet, the old expert gave a few snapshots of wizardry at the Parc des Rulers, most outstandingly his all out thunder knave of an exertion in the main half.
It was a strike of unadulterated virtuoso and appeared, for the umpteenth time in his profession, exactly what a really uncommon player Messi is.
It wasn’t to be however, not even the best will go out on top some of the time.
Be that as it may, at any rate we know for next season he can act in Paris.
A word at that point, for Paris Holy person Germain, who won this tie at Camp Nou a month ago and never truly glanced at risk for slamming around here.
This wasn’t vintage PSG with Barça ruling belonging, chances made and xG numbers however this was an at a careful distance execution.
The most great man on the pitch for Mauricio Pochettino’s men wasn’t among their assaulting wealth, it was, all things considered, chief Marquinhos.
With Thiago Silva having left for Chelsea, his Brazilian understudy has been given the armband and dominated around evening time facing Messi, Griezmann and Dembélé.
Telling, vocal and consistently where he should have been, Marquinhos is the ideal present day place back and showed his class all through the hour and a half here.
A square in the subsequent half, making a plunge from no place with Messi overwhelming objective, was hair-raising and the protector’s festival thereafter informed everything regarding how significant a test it was.
What a player he is.
There was a genuine feeling of ‘imagine a scenario where?’ at full-time here.
That came from various sources however basically we were considering exactly how great Barcelona might have been over the several seasons had Ousmane Dembélé remained fit.
The flying winger has been forever stayed outdoors on the treatment table since his appearance from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.
Different muscle wounds have shortened his advancement – just as a problematic way of life off the pitch – yet it seems like at long last, following four years, we’re seeing the genuine Dembélé.
Playing in his country, the 23-year-old was totally uncommon here, continually alarming the PSG safeguard with his speed and taking up remarkably shrewd situations in the channels between the middle backs.
This was a player who glances sure about his capacities and in his body, a player prepared to detonate (in the most ideal sense) anytime.
Shockingly for Ronald Koeman’s side, it’s overcome much past the point of no return in the day
