Dembélé puts grace in the procedure
A victory without consequence for a Barça who is still waiting for Araujo.
PARIS, May 10 (Benin News) –
FC Barcelona overcame a 3-1 defeat against Celta Vigo after a game without stakes, which took your breath away with Ronald Araujo fainting for several minutes, and which put the Culés in second place in the table after Matchday 36 of La Liga Santander.
The Camp Nou appreciated the goals more than the game of his team. Without the tension of the competition and with the goal ‘accomplished’ for both, Celta offered more arguments to take the lead on the scoreboard, but the particularly inspired Ousmane Dembelé changed the game when and how. he wanted it.
The France international tumbled Olivian’s list of merits after Iago Aspas missed a one-on-one and a clean chance after just ten minutes. The Galicians were lenient and in the first Blaugrana arrival, Memphis scored after a game from Dembélé. The Frenchman repeated this gesture at least five times during the match and two of them ended up in the net.
Four minutes later, Aubameyang took advantage of an unmarked ball in the heart of the area to score his first goal of the game. A goal that doesn’t do justice to Vigo, who were better in every area except scoring.
In the second half, the roles were reversed, Xavi brought in Riqui Puig and Barça gained the order they lacked in midfield. The duel resumed as the first half had ended: Dembélé’s run, killer pass and shot on goal. This time it was Aubameyang who completed his double on a magical night for his assistant.
Dembélé has provided 13 assists this season, making him the best asset of a Barca side which have conceded plenty of chances, but only one – that of Iago Aspas – has resulted in a goal. The rest of the game – Murillo was shown a red card after 14 minutes on the pitch – revolved around Ronald Araujo’s concussion.
The Uruguayan centre-back collided with Gavi and, although he was able to continue, he collapsed on the pitch. He was treated there before being taken to hospital for “additional examinations”. The confrontation ended there. All the spice had already been brought by Dembélé and the fright by the good Araujo.
That’s how the match ended, with Puig’s goal disallowed for offside and Aspas forgiving the second in his quest for another Zarra trophy. Everything was ready for the final whistle in a Camp Nou which has only one game left this season.
