Barça was still in the majority in the 24th minute. And I still suffered with the middle peasant.

Barcelona beat Las Palmas with Xavi’s favorite score and reduced the difference with Real Madrid to five points. Leading Madrid plays on Sunday against Athletic Bilbao at home.

Barcelona were playing against a rival with a similar football philosophy. Las Palmas is in the top 3 in terms of ownership this season, along with Real Madrid and the Catalans themselves. But García Pimienta’s team found it extremely difficult to control the ball in the match with the champion in their field. Barça effectively put pressure on the visitors, then made quick attacks and created chances.

After tackles and interceptions, the home team could have scored twice in the first five minutes. The main figure in these episodes was Lewandowski, whose participation on the field was in question due to a hip injury in the play-off of the Polish team. In one case the striker did not score, and in the other he did, but in both cases it was considered offside, so the goal was not counted. Las Palmas, with its high defensive line, used the artificial offside time and again. Barcelona also tried to take advantage of this, throwing the ball behind defenders at every opportunity. Kubarsi, for example, records wonderful programs. The evolution of the 17-year-old center back is amazing.

Halfway through the first half, Barcelona scored a magical goal after a brilliant escape from pressure and a combination of Lewandowski and Fermín. But it was also disallowed for offside. It’s a shame that so much beauty has been destroyed! In general, it is a strange rule, because the ball reached Raphinha from the Las Palmas defender, and it was not an accidental rebound in the fight with Lewandowski.

The next successful behind-the-back kick on the counterattack, which began with a cool interception by Gundogan, led to goalkeeper Valles being eliminated. The Las Palmas goalkeeper rushed out of the area to defend himself and knocked down Raphinha. The card does not become redder. Even before the break, Xavi’s team could have scored several goals against the rest of Las Palmas with ten men, the first of them being Lewandowski, who hit the crossbar with his shoulder. But Barça had big problems with the implementation.

In the second half, Las Palmas continued to defend with a central block, either 4-4-1 or 5-3-1 depending on the game situation, without wanting to put pressure on their goal. Furthermore, García Pimienta’s team sometimes organized dangerous counterattacks. Barcelona seemed nervous as they realized time was running out. And the referee also showed Gundogan a strange yellow card. The midfielder received a yellow card for committing a foul, hitting the ball and hitting the opponent’s leg due to inertia.

But after the hour mark, Xavi’s team still conceded their goal. The change made just three minutes earlier worked: Félix entered instead of Fermín. The Portuguese starred in one of the most striking episodes of his entire time in Barcelona. He moved from the left flank to the center and made a masterpiece pass: he put the ball on the head of Raphinha, who flew into the other’s area.

Barcelona easily recovered the ball, but needed to score more so as not to leave Las Palmas waiting for a lucky break at the end. Xavi’s coaching staff (the coach himself was serving a suspension in the stands) refreshed the attack by replacing Yamal. It was not the best game for the young winger: not a single successful dribble in five attempts, 0 shots and passes, 19 turnovers. Lewandowski also left the field. Without a deserved goal, but with a yellow card, which the striker clearly earned with the aim of “restarting” before the “Clásico” in the round, the Pole will miss the next match against Cádiz.

The second goal should have been scored by Félix himself, but he hit the crossbar, finishing without interference from the goal line. Furthermore, the ball, bouncing off the goalkeeper, also hit the post. Las Palmas did have its chance in the final minutes: the agile Moleiro finished alone but failed in a great position.

Complicated victory for Barça, although it should have been simple after the expulsion of the Las Palmas goalkeeper.
