Barcelona beat Celta Vigo 1-0 at Camp Nou in the 8th round of La Liga in the 2022/23 season yesterday. Battle away against Real Madrid.
In the process of facing Celta Vigo, after seeing the opponent’s defender make a mistake in the clearance in the 17th minute, Pedri easily pushed the goal from close range and made the score 1-0. However, Xavi’s team was unable to break the opponent’s goal for the next time.
Although Celta Vigo made many threats in the second half, Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen also contributed a lot of saves and became one of the team’s heroes. In the 69th minute, Celta Vigo scored a goal, but was accused of being offside and the goal was invalid, allowing Barcelona to escape the equalizer, and finally achieved 3 points and returned to the first place in the standings.
Lewandowski needs to get back to his best
In addition, Barcelona did not concede a goal in 6 consecutive La Liga games, and goalkeeper Ter Stegen also protected the team’s strong base for 624 consecutive minutes. However, Barcelona coach Xavi said in an interview after the game that he was not satisfied with the team’s performance, because the team did not put a lot of pressure on the opponent in the second half, but the team still scored 3 points despite the poor state. Points are also very important.
On the other hand, Barcelona star Lewandowski’s six consecutive league goalscoring streak ended, including last week’s Champions League group match against Inter Milan. In addition, Lewandowski has only scored 3 shots in the past 2 rounds, so in the next round of the Champions League group stage against Inter Milan at home and away to Real Madrid , the Polish star must find the feeling of scoring goals.
At present, Barcelona and Real Madrid both have the same 22 points, but Xavi’s team ranks first by virtue of the difference, so in the next round of the national derby against Real Madrid, this battle for the top position will definitely be very difficult.
