Santos vs Barcelona SC
Date: Thursday, 21st September 2017
Despite producing two goals, the first leg had too shortage of excitement and both teams took the attack to each other’s goal mouth. And by all means, Barcelona were the better side on the night creating a total of 16 scoring chances. But a better performance in front of goal should have put them in a better position against one of the coveted clubs in South American football. Santos will take the draw and believe they can do a good job in front of their home crowd.
Barcelona SC were not in action this weekend and remain on a five match unbeaten run. But the most recent four including the first leg clash of the corresponding fixture are draws. The team’s last defeat in regular 90 minutes came in Brazilian soil against Palmeiras by a 1-0 margin; a tie they later won on penalties.
FW Denis Suarez, 8 — Changed the game at Getafe and deserved his start here, but may have preferred to have been given continuity in midfield, rather than asked to play a left forward role. Delivered the corner that led to Paulinho’s role and there were some nice touches before his emphatic finish in the second half made it 3-0.
FW Lionel Messi, 10 — What more can be said? Barcelona-based Diario Sport wrote the new trident is the MMM: Messi, Messi and Messi. It’s hard to argue with that at the moment. He already has nine goals in just five league games this season and each of his goals, bar the first, which was a penalty, had something special about it.
