After two indigent initial defeats, Barça received Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League. And the Catalans won (1-0).
Defeated initially by the large score of 3-0 against Bayern Munich at home, then by the same score against Benfica in Lisbon, FC Barcelona no longer had the right to make mistakes in the Champions League this Wednesday evening.
The Catalan club, now back to the wall, absolutely had to win to relaunch in the queen competition. And it was the courageous captain Gerard Piqué who showed the example. Following an unsuccessful corner, Jordi Alba inherited the leather, and again sent a cross to the far post where the tackled shot from Pique delivered the Camp Nou.
1-0 was the score at rest and if the Ukrainians had not sunk after 45 minutes, they could thank their guard Bushchan, author of many decisive saves on interesting attempts signed Memphis Depay or Frenkie de Jong.
In the first act, the visiting club lost possession too many times in their camp and regularly put themselves in danger. And the face of the meeting did not change after the first period.
Barcelona continued to provide plenty of opportunities and the young prodigy Ansu Fati narrowly missed doubling the bet with a scissor barely escaping the frame shortly before the hour mark.
The pace would drop in the second half, when a quarter of an hour from the end, Memphis Depay was replaced by Sergio Agüero, who made his second appearance in the Barcelona jersey.
But this entry into play was not going to have any impact on the end result and Barça is finally back on the road to success. Barça is finally relaunching just before the Clasico.
