De Jung tapped in the line just before half-time to start scoring and set up a brilliant substitute. Riqui Puig Return home second in 89 minutes.
Barca’s away form was sometimes terrible, so the fact that he finished seven games in a row with just one loss from Camp Nou Athletic Bilbao In the Spanish Super Copa final, it will be encouraging after the extra time. The victory at Elche was the fourth consecutive victory at La Liga and was achieved without Messi.
Personally, De Jung continues to grow, Samuel Umtiti There was a great moment when it went in and went well and finally when the young midfielder Puig scored the club’s first goal.
Sergio Busquets This season’s fifth booking will be suspended for a home game with Barca’s Super Copa conqueror Athletic Bilbao next week.
The manager’s evaluation is a perfect score of 10
6 — Koeman had lost so many players that the team chose himself. It is commendable to retain Umtiti. If he can help bring the French back to their best, it will be one of the most notable things he has taken over at Camp Nou.
Player Rating (1-10; 10 = Highest. Players introduced after 70 minutes have no rating)
DF Oscar Mingueza,Five– Thanks to Telstegen for stopping by Rigoni after losing the ball in a dangerous position due to wasted delivery in the last third.
DF Ronald Araujo, 7- He continued his impressive shape and gave little behind. It was even more adventurous due to his death.
DF Samuel Umtiti, 7- The second start of the season and the second shutout. He is the best defender in Barca’s ball. The question is whether he can stay healthy and rediscover the pre-World Cup 2018 form.
DF Jordi Alba, 6- Moves up and down the left side, contributes to the defensive clean sheet, and enters a good position for attacks.
Midfielder Sergio Busquets, 6- Since Barca returned to the 4-3-3 formation, he has found some form and has been put in perfect position again.
Midfielder Frenkie de Jong, 8– Probably Barca’s best player since the turn of the year. He scored his fourth goal of the season with Elche-they all came in his last ten appearances-and his driving runs and crosses for Puig goal when he went further. Showed what you can do.
MF Pedri, 6- The ball is neat and tidy, but when the chance comes, shot shy in and around the area.
FW Usmanudembele, 6- He slipped through a few Elche players at a time, creating a brilliant moment, but often made mistakes in his final decision.
FW Antoine Griezmann, 6- I wasn’t overly involved in the last third, but I worked hard. Koeman would want him more.
FW Martin Brightweight, 6- He made a good cross from the start position on the left side toward the opening goal and moved the line well in the second half.
MF Riqui Puig, NR- Brought in for the last few minutes, he found time to pop up in a distant post to score his first goal for the club.
