Manaj was the King

A hat-trick by the Barça B forward gives Koeman's team the first win, which played the entire second half with 11 homegrown players. Nàstic was left with 10 in 38 '.

Ronald Koeman ended the game drawing a smile. Surely he had every reason to be satisfied. To begin with, Riqui Puig has made it very clear to him that he is going to make it very difficult, Sergi Roberto, who can be a midfielder with arrival as soon as he gets close to the area, Samuel Umtiti, who has arrived in optimal form after several seasons on holiday, Álex Collado, who has a place in the first team and Albanian forward Rey Manaj, that if the club wants to put him on the market, his departure will be easy, because he has a goal to give and take.But above the rest an 18-year-old boy shone, who played on the right wing, with the number 7 behind him (the same as Griezmann), wreaking havoc for his band, carrying the ball sewn to the boot, always playing with discretion and looking at the goal at all times. Your name? Yusuf Demir. On loan from Rapid Vienna, he left the two thousand fans who gathered at the Johan Cruyff stadium with eyes.The game itself had little history. Koeman opted for the 4-3-3, parking the 3-5-2 for a better occasion. Laporta surely saw with satisfaction from the box the change of the Dutchman's script. He put his best possible team on the field, with seven players from the first team, and a forward made up of kids who were less than 20 years old. Among them was Demir, ready to take over the world from the first minute.With Dest also moving down the right wing, the winger had a great chance, with a left-footed shot that narrowly missed. But the one who gave the feeling of more danger in attack was a runaway Sergio Roberto, with two great chances: one emulating the epic goal he scored against PSG, with Riqui Puig as assistant, and another with a great header, which Manu García responded with success. .

Although the game had a game of inflection with the expulsion of central Álex Quintilla after a tackle to Riqui Puig in the 37th minute. In an official game the expulsion could even be considered fair, but being a friendly it was somewhat rigorous.With ten men in the field, the figure of the Albanian King Manaj appeared. The forward of the subsidiary, who the club has put in the window, signed a hat-trick under the watchful eye of Laporta. Brilliant in every way was the execution of his first goal, with a reverse and dry finish throughout the squad. With Nàstic increasingly surrendered, goals from Álex Collado arrived, with a bit of fortune after bouncing the ball off an opponent, and two more from Manaj: one with his chest, after a great assist from the left of N'daye , and another penalty, caused by the Senegalese defender.
