Raphinha and Ousmane Dembélé have meanwhile switched sides. However, both are given complete freedom on their new pages.
Referee Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea sends the players to the drinking break. Real Valladolid can now catch their breath.
Raphinha can do anything on the right. He dribbles into the penalty area and is hardly put under pressure. Instead of putting the ball across with his stronger left foot, he shoots at goal with his right hand. His shot flies past the goal to the left. Valladolid swims.
Tooor for FC Barcelona, 1-0 through Robert Lewandowski
Now it happened. Raphinha hits a perfect cross from the right with plenty of momentum towards the far post. Robert Lewandowski jumps into the ball and pushes it into the goal from close range with a high right foot.
Barcelona keep pushing. Robert Lewandowski gets the ball in a central position in front of the penalty area, but can’t find a space for a shot. The Pole puts the ball on the left side to Ousmane Dembélé, who doesn’t hesitate and pulls away immediately. His powerful shot touches the top of the bar.
Gavi plays a sensational pass to Raphina, which started between Javi Sánchez and Luis Pérez. The Brazilian shoots from a tight angle but is denied by Jordi Masip.
However, the corner from the left side is already headed out at the first post. Gavi brings the ball back in from the right half-space, but Jordi Masip comes out and grabs the ball.
Ousmane Dembélé dribbles into the penalty area from the left baseline and aims at the goal from a tight angle. Sergio Escudero blocks the now sixth corner.
Gavi sees a large gap in the visitors’ defense and receives a ball from Koundé right into the free space. His shot from about 9 meters away is blocked by Jordi Masip.
Huge chance for Barcelona! Raphina brings a cross from the right into the penalty area with a lot of momentum. Robert Lewandowski heads in between two defenders and deflects the ball to the far post. From there, the ball bounces onto goalkeeper Jordi Masip’s shoulder and then rolls past the goal before Lewandowski can intervene while lying down. A curious scene.
A first corner for the guests ends with an offensive foul by Javi Sánchez on Álex Baldé.
The Blaugrana keep looking for Raphinha on the right flank. The Brazilian is dangerous with every move and impossible to catch for the Valladolid defence.
Raphinha dribbles into the penalty area from the right, puts the ball in the center for Dembélé, who shoots immediately. However, his attempt is deflected into the goal by a struggling defender.
Barcelona starts very dominantly and presses on the opening goal early on. A long-range shot from Pedri from a central position flies well over the goal. Valladolid already wants to take the pace out of the game.
Raphinha starts with a lot of speed from the right in the penalty area and goes past Luis Pérez with a nice feint. However, the Valladolid defender still gets a leg in between.
The teams enter the field and get ready. Barca players still pose for a team photo. Soon it will start.
Some old acquaintances from the Bundesliga are on the pitch today. Former Gladbacher Marc-André ter Stegen and ex-Dortmunder Ousmane Dembélé start for the hosts alongside top striker Robert Lewandowski. There is also a familiar face on the Valladolid side. Sergio Escudero laced up his shoes for Schalke 04 from 2010 to 2013. It starts in just under ten minutes.
The guests also switch three times. First-choice goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo has to sit out with knee problems, Jordi Masip starts for him. Joaquín replaces the red-banned Jawad El Yamiq and Óscar Plano starts in place of Roque Mesa.
Newly promoted Valladolid started the season with a 3-0 defeat of Villarreal. In the second game against Sevilla, however, they did well and only had to accept the 1-1 equalizer shortly before the end. However, today’s task in Barcelona will be even more difficult for Real.
Xavi makes three changes. Sergio Busquets returns from his second yellow-red suspension to replace Frenkie de Jong in midfield. Raphinha starts for the second time since joining from Leeds United, replacing Ferrán Torres. New signing Jules Koundé is also making his debut after being registered with the league. He replaces Andreas Christensen, who is out with a flu infection.
In the midst of a tumultuous transfer window, FC Barcelona started the new season with a win and a draw. In the opening game against Rayo Vallecano, they couldn’t get past a 0-0 draw at home at Camp Nou. In the following week Real Sociedad was clearly defeated 4:1. Head coach Xavi’s team wants to get their first home win today.
Welcome to the 3rd match day of the Primera División. FC Barcelona meets Real Valladolid. Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m.
