Dembele scored the only goal in Barcelona’s win away at Metropolitano

It has always been tough for any club to travel to Atletico Madrid’s ground, and Barca was no different on MD 16.


However, the fact that Real Madrid slipped at Villarreal’s earlier on Saturday was a real push, and Xavi’s men know that this was no better chance to put the gap back to three points.

The Catalan club was without Robert Lewandowski due to suspension, that’s why Xavi used four midfielders as he knew how tense the home team would be.

First half was tight but chances came and went. Then the 2021 and 2022 Golden Ball Pedri and Gavi combined to create the chance for Dembele to break the deadlock.

The French wingman’s one-touch finish was too good for Jan Oblak to save.

Second half saw Atletico pressing to find the equalizer, with Jose Gimenez and Antoine Griezmann came close.

Gimenez’s header was powerful but it went off the post by centimeters, while Ronald Araujo came to the rescue in stoppage time by clearing Griezmann shot off the line.

Ferran Torres clashed with Savic

Well, it was the game of the month, and the players made sure it ended with dramas.

In second-half stoppage time, Ferran and Stefan Savic got involved in a scuffle as the pair turned the pitch into their own UFC’s cage.

It did not go unnoticed by referee José Luis Munuera Montero, who dismissed both players.

After the game was over, it remained to be seen how the Andalusian referee would reflect the fight in his report in order to find out the possible sanction for both players.
