After two league defeats, before Getafe and Real Madrid, Barcelona’s priority was to beat Alavés on their visit to Mendizorroza … but they did not go beyond the 1-1 draw. Those of Koeman they played half an hour with one more, but they were not able to change the streak: They have only added 2 of the last 12 points.
After half an hour in which they both tried each other, but with Barça very high in the Alava area where they missed clear opportunities, it was the babazorro team that went ahead thanks to a monumental blunder of Net Y Pique. The central player yielded to the goalkeeper, who was not expecting it, when Luis Rioja He was coming from behind to steal his wallet. The Brazilian could not believe how the Blue and White attacker made them 1-0 with his first goal in the First Division.
The desperation of Barça looking from behind was revealed in an image: Messi did not see the red card after throwing a ball against Hernández Hernández, angered by an action, although he was cautioned with yellow.
The bad feelings that the first half left Koeman made him change three cards at once for the second half: Busquets, Lenglet Y Dembele they stayed in the locker room and entered Pjanic, Trincao Y Pedri, with De Jong forced to take center stage.
Alavés was one less with half an hour ahead, after Jota Peleteiro saw the second yellow after a very high kick when fighting with a ball with Pique.
Although concatenation does not imply causality, the truth is that as Jota was sent off, Barça tied. Griezmann He took advantage of a lost ball in the front of the area to uncheck and beat Pacheco and make it 1-1. Pedri He assumed the gallons, at 17, to lead the possible comeback, but it was a blaugrana choral exercise to try.
Dest, after a rehearsed set piece play, Pjanic, who shot Pacheco point-blank, Pique headlong … The Blaugrana siege was unsuccessful, while Koeman sank into his seat on the bench.
