Bilbao 1-1 Barcelona (0-0 HT)
Bilbao: Inigo Martinez (50′).
Barcelona: Memphis Depay (75′).
In the first half of the match, Barcelona quickly increased the squad to find an advantage right away. They have absolutely superior ball control. However, the visitors’ forwards Griezmann, Depay and Braithwaite could not find a clear enough connection to create a really sharp combination.
Bilbao also knows people who know us when they actively pull down the squad and play defensively and counter-attack. Their counterattack plans also contain many dangers. Even the home team is the one to finish more than the away team. However, no goals were scored in the first half.
Bilbao suddenly opened the score of the match
Entering the second half, Barcelona continued to push the squad high. However, when the results were not seen, they had to taste the bitter fruit. In the 50th minute, Inigo Martinez opened the scoring for Bilbao. Before that, Muniain was the one with the correct assist situation.
After the goal, the Catalan giants continued to attack. Their efforts finally paid off when Depay equalized in the 75th minute. However, the goal came only from the Dutchman’s individual efforts rather than the result of coordination. The score of the match was 1-1.
Depay equalize for Barcelona
The away team continued to have more possession of the ball and created more remarkable situations but still could not tear the opponent’s net again. Minutes 90+3, they even had to play short of players when Eric Garcia received a red card after trying to intercept the opponent’s striker. Bilbao was awarded a free kick about 20 meters from the goal but could not take advantage of it.
1-1 is the final score of the match. Barcelona has 4 points after 2 rounds and temporarily climbs to the top thanks to the sub-index. Bilbao still does not know the smell of victory in this season.
