The premiere in the Barça Champions League was with a thrashing against Ferencvaros perfect to boost morale facing the curves that come in the following games (RealMadrid and Juventus). Those of Koeman suffered in the first minutes but later they were superior and ended up thrashing to become leaders of Group G.
The doubts of the azultrana team at this start of the season increased with an erratic start, without control of the game and constantly surprised by Magyar counterattacks. A goal disallowed by Nguen for an offside was the first visitor warning, but then another very clear occasion came when a whiplash from Barbosa from Nguen’s own pass crashed violently into the post. In between, just a couple of sparks from Messi, first with a high free kick, then with an innocent shot that Dibusz cleared badly and Ansu Fati almost managed to finish off.
Faced with such a panorama, Messi had to appear when the game was heading for half an hour. A classic slalom his, leaving several rivals along the way, ended in a penalty that gave oxygen to the Catalans: the Argentine did not forgive from eleven meters.
The goal soothed Hungarian spirits, who saw Barcelona arrive frequently and in danger. First it was a good play by Trincao, very incisive on the right wing after taking ownership of Griezmann, which Ansu Fati finished off and made the visiting goalkeeper shine. Later, a hand in hand from Leo Messi crashed into the post, the ’10’ continues without much luck in the face of the opposite goal.
Trincao continued to be a nightmare and again touched the goal, but Dibusz covered him well in another hand to hand something heeled and forced. The second was seen coming and it came with a great play between De Jong, who put a wonderful pass behind the defense, and Ansu Fati, who finished in a semi-fallow (with the tibia) but effectively to give Barça more advantage.
The Barça dominance increased after the break, Ferencvaros was totally overwhelmed. Trincao continued to do a lot of damage starting from the right and the third came in a good pass from Ansu Fati that Coutinho picked up to get a hard shot to make the third.
The game seemed totally doomed, but a play returned the emotion. Nguen beat the back to the Blaugrana defense and the position to Piqué and the center-back grabbed the striker, scoring a penalty and seeing the red card. Barça stayed with ten … and without Gerard for the match against Juventus next Wednesday.
Jaratin did not forgive from eleven meters and elFerencvaros put some fear in a couple of arrivals at Neto’s goal, but in a quick counter, Dembélé left his pair, won the baseline and gave the ball to Pedri, who closed the game with the fourth, while the Frenchman made the fifth after a gift from Messi.
