Real Sociedad – FC Barcelona | Supercopa Espaa: Have we ever seen an exhibition like Ter Stegen’s?
Real Sociedad – FC Barcelona | Spanish Super Cup Memorable German Night
FIt was a great game, 120 ‘of which did not win, decided in a penalty shootout that I fell on the Barça side mainly because of Ter Stegen, That par two, I guessed the other two (Willian Jos’s went to the post) and corrected De Jong and Griezmann’s mistakes from the penalty spot. A historical display of the German who puts a very low Bara in the final of the Super Cup against a Real that was emptied and surely deserved more. The two, in fact, had their merits to play in Seville on Sunday.
Ter Stegen paired them in the first half, in the second, in overtime and in the shoot-out, decisive with his hands as Messi is with his feet, capital in Bara. Its exhibition in Cordoba will go down in history. His hand to Januzaj in the foul only existed in his fingers and in slow motion, because until that moment it seemed that he had not touched her. In the round for the first two to Bautista and Oyarzabal (second failure in 19 pitches) and also guessed the third, which went to the post, and the fourth, although he entered. A night to remember with its six stops, almost all decisive.
The extension was a distribution of hooks that failed to bring down either one or the other. The chances were clear, Dembl, Griezmann, Zaldau, Oyarzabal, especially Januzaj with a career that could be memorable and another foul that was going the same way and crashed on the post … The teams were emptied, they were coming. headdresses from the 90s, as if there were no tomorrow, because the final was at stake. The miraculous thing is that they got to penalties.
The match went through the head, feet and hands of De Jong. First he dressed as a striker to score his third goal with a header of ‘9’, confirming that offensive version that claims him Koeman (Also remember your attendance at Pedri in San Mams). At the beginning of the second half he put his hand in a mistake of those that have been repeated so much at Bara this season. An absurd penalty that was worth the draw. He was then left alone in front of Remiro and after sitting down Merino Gorosabel stole the goal. Beyond his mistake on the penalty, he interpreted very well De Jong his role as half midfielder and half forward, tireless in transitions. But in the batch he failed again when Ter Stegen had stopped first. A party roller coaster.
It was expected that Griezmann assume the gallons of Messi on such a demanding night, with a title at stake, also before the team where he grew up and was formed. The French was in the usual gray tone, far from the excellence that is supposed to be except for the attendance at De Jong. Antoine is expected to unbalance games with more actions like that, decisive, not so sporadic. Because it goes without saying that the implication is never lacking. I tried to make sense of the game by showing up in the zone Messi. In overtime he left Dembl alone for 1-2 and he had it after a foul that ended up finishing after the rejection at the hands of Remiro. His failure in the batch condemn him.
I started the game in code txuriurdin, winners of all the duels, constantly peering into the Ter Stegen, demonstrating the hunger of the team that lives in games like this for stepping on them so little, which translated into a notable difference in pace and dominance. Arrivals and occasions, especially a heads-up of Isaac saved by the German. But that start, which lasted until the 20th minute, did not translate into the scoreboard, to the chagrin of Imanol Sheriff and his men.
Ah hurts Only, see without Messi, which his annoyances left out of the semifinal. Vena the 10 raked and they grabbed Koeman and his peers to lead the reaction. His loss was added to those of Piqu, Ansu, Sergi Roberto and Coutinho, five heavyweight players who left Koeman with hardly any alternatives on the bench.
