Zapping Eleven Mondial Top 20: the most expensive players in the world
After the beautiful show of force against Real Sociedad last week, Barça was expected at the turn in the galley of San Mames cathedral. And the least we can say is that it’s hard for the Catalan club which suffers against a voluntary Basque team.
Even if Braithwaite should have given Barça the advantage in the 4th minute of play, Bilbao then largely dominated the first act. Williams stumbled on Neto (10th) before Sancet found the bar (11th). Without a decisive intervention from De Jong in the area (18th), Bilbao could also have taken the advantage in a generally dominated first period.
Note that Barça must also deal with the injury of Gérard Piqué. Hit after a duel, the central defender had to give way to Araujo during the first act.
Barça, as expected, is jostled on the side of Athletic Bilbao in San Mames. The Blaugrana club did not concede a goal but must however deal with the injury of Gerard Pique who left his partners in the first period.
