But who were the outstanding actors in the competition?


Ousmane Dembele: 8.5

Most of the parts of Dembele’s performance here were on point and all that was missing was a final goal contribution in the competition.

He made 11 major touches in the area and completed four dribbles. Although his shooting failed – he has a total of six shots, only second only to Messi – he made good openings for himself and couldn’t find the target. But he’s doing the right things.

Lionel Messi: 8.0

A somewhat reserved evening for the Argentine, but only by his own high standards, and yet we received fantastic support.

Messi waited for the perfect moment to throw a splendid cross in the area and at the foot of Frenkie de Jong, who had burst into the area to turn deep into the corner.

A stunning free kick that went into the top corner was also rejected by the goalkeeper as Messi’s form becomes a little more consistent with each passing week.


Frenkie de Jong 8.5

The Dutchman hasn’t always been the most confident player since moving to Barcelona, ​​but he’s definitely starting to find his way around the team.

The former Ajax midfielder pulled the strings from the center here and it was noticed that his run beyond the strikers was the only goal of the game and Messi’s pass hit with a neat finish.

It is something that Barcelona will ask more of the Dutch player and there is hope that this is an achievement to build on.
