1×1 Barcelona: Trincao marvels, Messi resolves and Griezmann despairs

Net: Together with Araujo he was the only one who played the 90 minutes. The Brazilian goalkeeper is still seen with some confidence problems in some actions, but it is clear that he is winning integers with the passage of time. In the goal of Samu Sáiz he could not do anything.

Sergi Roberto: He's not having a brilliant preseason, but he's at least sticking to the script. For now, Koeman doesn't see him as a midfielder, having played both friendlies as a right back.

Araujo: The headquarters of the subsidiary fully complied. Quick in execution and in anticipation. He aims to be an important complement to this position on the squad.

Pique: He changed his position, playing as left central. He had some trouble stopping Samu Saiz. In the play of the goal he was out of place because De Jong's mistake caught him off guard.

Sunrise: He complied with the file and little else. You cannot blame him for anything, but those combinations with Messi and his additions in attack are missed.

Sergio Busquets: Al de Badia was more comfortable being more protected in the midfield. Combined seamlessly to break enemy lines. He improved compared to his version against Nastic.

De Jong: The blur in the play of the Girona goal, with the absurd failure in his back pass that led to the rival's counterattack, should not tarnish a notable game by the Dutchman, who once again shone playing in the double pivot and collecting the ball between the central.

Trincao: Spectacular. The Portuguese is becoming the great revelation of the preseason. Everything he does makes sense, his change of pace is devilish and his one-on-one deadly. He was also generous in the execution of the first goal with his assistance to Coutinho. Let's toast because for once it seems that a signing of the technical secretariat points to a complete success.

Messi: The Argentine was seen to be more dynamic and participatory than in the first game. He scored two goals, one with his right and the other with fortune as an ally when he bounced off an opponent who deflected the ball, but the most important thing is to see the Argentine come to collect the ball and try to energize the game by opening on the wings or dribbling at edge of area. In the first goal he also participated with a great pass into space to Trincao.

Coutinho: Perhaps the great problem of the Brazilian is his lack of regularity, but the truth is that he has interesting edges buds. He scored a goal, which was made by Trincao, and sent a ball to the crossbar after a rival deflected it. He lacks a little more conviction in his game because he has plenty of talent.

Griezmann: The French is still totally lost. He participates little and when he has the ball slows down the game more than anything else. Koeman is still searching for his ideal position, but they seem to have serious trouble finding it. For now, in these two games, he wanders more than anything else.


Semedo: He played without fanfare or mistakes.

Pedri: The canary has ‘duende’. Everything he does breathes talent and genius. Too bad Koeman only put him on the field for thirty minutes this time. It is being, together with Trincao, the great revelation of this preseason.

Braithwaite: The Danish continues to demonstrate his professionalism and commitment, despite the fact that his future is seen far from Barcelona.

Junior: The left back was correct. With the one that fell to him last season, it is clear that that is praise.

Lenglet: Party without much demand for the French.

Dembélé: The French winger played on the right wing. As always, he combined interesting actions with totally exasperating ones. He sent a ball into the clouds after a good slalom.

Alena: Good role for the midfielder, who continues to give Koeman reasons to continue.

Riqui Puig: The midfielder always has things to offer and never disappoints. Together with Pedri, we would have liked to see him for more minutes.

Konrad: Has cheek. For a player of his age that is always a 'plus'.
