Nobody mentioned this tie was going to be simple, however after going clean final yr after greater than a decade lifting trophies and singing alirones, these of Ronald Koeman they’re nonetheless alive regardless of taking part in one other extra time thus far this yr. With this long-suffering and sweaty victory, footballers will probably be ready to relaxation and sit on the sofa this Thursday to take pleasure in the speak that Gerard Piqué may have with Ibai Llanos on the streamer’s Twitch channel.
To attempt to get the ticket for the semifinals of the King’s Cup Ronald Koeman I don’t reserve something. As a result of it was not saved, it was not saved Ter Stegen. The Dutch coach sat down Neto, a goalkeeper who was widespread on this match. Forward of the German goalkeeper have been Umtiti and Araújo as central and Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto, returning this to the beginning eleven after recovering from his harm. Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets and Pedri type the trivot in the middle of the discipline and the trident to conquer Nasrid lands was for Leo Messi, Francisco Trincao and Antoine Griezmann.
The Barça footballers went out to do their job from the first minute. Every ball handed by the ft of Messi, who since his contract was leaked appears to have taken a step ahead to present that his wage is justified. The Argentine was sweetly haggling and discovering areas and the mixed Diego Martinez he had no alternative however to lock himself in the again ready for the Barcelona decelerate or reap the benefits of some in opposition to.
Throughout the first minutes the probabilities of Barcelona they have been taking place one after one other. The iron and agency Nasrid rear didn’t depart a niche they usually all the time interposed between the events of the Catalans and the aim. And if it wasn’t protection, there it was Aaron Escandell. The goalkeeper of Pomegranate put a providential foot to save the shot of a Leo Messi that a person motion of lovely bill had been signed. And as if that weren’t sufficient, the rejection got here to Trincao, which with a volley additionally pressured the native goalkeeper to fly to deny the Portuguese the aim.
The Nasrid wall
Pedri was additionally starting to seem to assist Messi in group and distribution. Between them they made events that later Griezmann, Trincao and even, Araújo -in corners and fouls- wasted. German It was immeasurable protecting gaps inside the Granada space and it was not simple to overcome that wall that the pupils of Diego Martinez. One in all the finest events got here with an absence of those who a lot like Leo Messi, a type of which are nearly like a penalty for him, a type of like the one he scored the different day in opposition to Athletic. The issue for Rosario is that Escandell He flew to make a popcorn and depart the ’10’ wanting to have a good time the aim.
Moments later I might see the yellow card Leo Messi by a tough deal with, with the iron in entrance, on Victor Diaz. Then I gave it again Eteki obstructing the profession of the Argentine and likewise the Granada midfielder noticed the card. And if the ahead culé obtained a blow, the following one can be worse. Possession for him Barcelona in protection, these of Diego Martinez press till they trigger the lack of Umtiti. Soro picks up the leather-based and places a middle between the goalkeeper and the protection, the place it seems Kenedy to push at will, a aim related to the one they conceded in opposition to Rayo in Vallecas per week in the past.

With the 2-0 the Pomegranate He returned to give the ball to Barcelona, which made them dizzy going from one place to one other however they all the time ran out of concepts due to the few areas that have been obtainable. One thing like what occurs to Trincao, that from the middle of the discipline to the rival space is a crack, however the decision-making in the final meters is one thing that has to proceed training, as when the recreation time was exceeded that despatched a proper hand from inside the space to the crossbar. That might be the final of the Portuguese, who left the discipline of play to depart his place to Dembélé. Together with the French he put extra artillery Koeman: Braithwaite by a vital Umtiti.
Granada takes a stick
The minutes handed and the Barcelona wanted to shut the hole, however the two targets did lots, an excessive amount of, harm to the group of Ronald Koeman. As well as, the Pomegranate from Diego Martinez, to whom it’s essential to worth what’s doing with this group, defended to perfection, stopping that the culés may shoot to door. They tried it like a pylon hammer in the first act however now that they have been in want they have been unable to get them into bother. Aaron Escandell.
Exhausted window of adjustments Ronald Koeman giving entrance to Riqui Puig and eradicating from the discipline Sergio Busquets. He entered the final ten minutes and at Granada he defended even the utillero. Nor buzzard footballers like Riqui, Pedri or Messi they discovered the minimal area to rating. And once they may shoot at the door, like Griezmann In 82 ′ with an ideal Chilean, I used to be Escandell in hero mode to say “you’ll not go by right here.” The wooden once more prevented a aim to Dembélé with a poised and highly effective shot, and a minute later Griezmann he bumped into the stick once more, however this time he was fortunate that the leather-based bounced off the goalkeeper’s leg. Pomegranate and it ended up sneaking into his aim. 2-1 and 4 minutes added, through which Messi he smashed the ball again into the publish to put the locals on discover.
