Barça 1x1: Ter Stegen and Suárez prevent the League from being thrown away

The enormous stops of the German goal and the two goals of the Uruguayan striker gave the Blaugrana a point; Messi did not see a door, but gave two assists.

Ter Stegen: The German goalkeeper permanently ended his unbeaten streak in LaLiga in 499 minutes. His intervention in the game was decisive, especially two shots from Nolito. The last one of extreme difficulty being practically at point-blank range, but also notable for its stretched 'in extremis' to the striker's dry finish. Before, he had also been decisive in an outing against Brais, touching the ball just enough so that the ball did not go in and end in the post, and the subsequent one by Aspas, who cleared it meritoriously. In the two goals he could not do anything. He made a mistake in a ball with the feet, but in the rest he was at a brilliant level, as usual.

Semedo: Good match for the Portuguese winger, who has maintained an outstanding level since the return from confinement. Excellent when it comes to giving depth in the game, it just lacks a little more precision in the centers to finish the job. He gets better and better with Messi. Every time he dares to do more things, even kicking on goal.

Piqué: The Catalan central defender led the defense with solvency, despite having one of the fastest teams in front and that best execute the counterattacks and turnovers of the high phase. He had the opportunity to score a header goal to a shot that Messi launched from a corner that ended up crashing to the crossbar.

Umtiti: Irregular match for the French central defender, who was still a little slow when it came to executing the actions, especially in the first goal, where pressure went wrong. Always playing to the limit, but this time it was successful. Correct when it comes to kicking off the ball.

Alba: The lateral begins to give symptoms of tiredness. In fact, Setién decided to replace him in the last minutes. He completed a correct match, but did not finish running his connection with Messi.

Rakitic: Celta's first goal came because of his error in the pass, but removing this error, his match was simply spectacular. He recovered dozens of balls, balanced the game, knew how to move between the lines and always anticipated divided balls. It is at a spectacular level.

Arturo Vidal: The Chilean fought like a boar in the midfield and helps as the most when it comes to stopping the rival's transitions, but sometimes he seems like a chicken without a head due to his excessive momentum.

Riqui Puig: Great match for the youth squad, especially in a stellar first half. Always choosing the best and most clairvoyant action, he knew how to connect especially with Messi. To applaud his defensive work. He has won repeat ownership in the next games.

Messi: There is no way for the Argentine crack to add his 700th goal as a professional. He signed two assists, the first very meritorious, coming from a free kick, which everyone expected him to finish on goal, but who decided to draw a center to the head of Suarez. And the second, in a jumbled play in the area, which ended up giving the Charrúa to score. He was close to scoring up to three times, but had his sights deflected.

Suárez: His first post-injury and post-confinement goals served to prevent Barcelona from leaving Balaídos empty-handed. It shows that he is not yet one hundred percent, but a striker of his talent is always a danger. The second goal has a lot of merit, as it is a pure killer action. He is just one goal away from reaching Kubala and becoming the third highest scorer in the club's history.

Ansu Fati: The youth squad was located on the left wing, giving breadth and depth to his wing. He always looked for the imbalance and the supports with Jordi Alba. His presence in the field is a gale of fresh air in attack that his teammates always appreciate. He ended up exhausted on the field at his enormous sacrifice on the field. It was the first change of Setién, replaced by Braithwaite.


Braithwaite: Wrong. Setién put him to pick up Ter Stegen's long balls and start the second play. He did not do it on any occasion, causing foul after foul.

Griezmann: The French has neither been nor expected since the return from confinement.

Junior: Drew a good offensive action. The rest, especially defensively, from bad to worse.

Arthur: He left in the last minutes, with the ticket to Turin in hand.
