Barcelona won 8-2 against Huesca, promoted this year in the Liga. The Barça was led to the score in the third minute but quickly managed to turn the tide in the first half thanks to Lionel Messi. Le Barça scored 5 goals in the second half, including one from Frenchman Ousmane Dembélé. Barcelona takes the lead in the Liga Championship thanks to a better goal difference.
Barça nuked Huesca in half. The champion is lecturing the promoted ! With doubles of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, FC Barcelona outscored Huesca (8-2) on Sunday for the third day of the Spanish Championship, joining Real Madrid in the lead before the International break. At Camp Nou, the modest Aragonese club opened the scoring in the third minute thanks to Cucho Hernandez and maintained hope just before the break on a goal by Alex Gallar (42nd, 3-2).
But SD Huesca could not face Barça’s recital: Double of Messi (16′, 61′), goal against Jorge Pulido’s camp (25′), Flat of Suarez’s foot awarded after video arbitrage (39′), cross fire from the left of Ousmane Dembélé (48′), supersonic half-volley of Ivan Rakitic (52′) on an opening of Messi, again passer for Jordi Alba (81′)… And Suarez closed the score on penalty (90 ‘+3’).
This offensive festival, The first of the season in Spain, allows Barcelona (1st, 9 pts) to continue its flawless play in this Liga and to pass Real (2nd, 9 pts). This leading duo is already five points ahead of Atlético (4 pts), which dropped on Saturday in Vigo (2-0). “It’s always important to be leaders but it’s all just beginning,” Luis Suarez told beIN Sports Spain. “The Championship is very long and the important thing is to continue on this dynamic.”
Huesca had opened the scoring.
The Barça score is perhaps a bit misleading as Huesca, in the first half, tried to push the reigning Spanish champions, producing some play and nice movements without concreting behind. But in the second half, the spaces left were a delight for the people of Barcelona, who present this season a multiple threat between a Messi that is always decisive, a Suarez that regains form and a Dembélé that is increasingly comfortable.
On Sunday, the French winger got his fourth start in four official matches and scored his third goal in all competitions. Not to mention his shot rolled up on the cross (29′) and his growing complicity with Alba on the left wing. It was on a luminous pass from “Dembouz” that the catalan side, snubbed Friday by Spanish coach Luis Enrique, brought the goal against his camp of Pulido (25th).
Messi was immense, Dembele a striker
And Alba, obviously eager to respond to his non-selection against a background of disagreement with the former technician of Barça, was also passer on the goal of Suarez (39′) before sealing the score at the end of the game (82′). In short, the danger seems to come from everywhere but it comes mostly from Messi’s feet.
The Barcelona captain scored a splendid goal, leaving his vis-à-vis Luisinho (16′) on his buttocks, he multiplied the dribbles and the bright openings and his double allowed him to join Karim Benzema at the top of the league scoring with 4 goals. And he also fired on the cross (47′) and let Suarez turn the penalty in the final seconds (90 ‘ +3)!
We can confirm that the Argentinean has digested the disappointment of the World Cup in Russia (elimination in the eighth against France) and restarted the season with appetite. Moreover, having put his selection in brackets, “La Puce” will be able to rest during the International break before a trip that promises to be delicate on September 15 on the pitch of the Real Sociedad. But like Real, this Barça seems to be resourceful.
