The bittersweet debut of Ilaix Moriba with Barça in the League

There were doubts regarding Barça’s eleven against Alavés since taking into account this week’s match in the Champions League against PSG, Koeman maybe it gave rotations. Not many, but there were.

The veteran Busquets was going to be accompanied by two who are not so many, especially one. Riqui Puig he would have the opportunity to prove to the Dutchman that he was wrong this summer when he told him that he would not have many minutes. The other one who debuted in the league and who until now did not know this competition with the first team was Ilaix Moriba.

He had already been summoned other times with the first team, but it would not be until January 13, a date that he will never forget, when he went out to the first scene of FC Barcelona. He knows the club very well, from the 2010 leads here and he has been climbing in the different teams until he came under the command of Koeman.

It was his first league game, he was already in the Cup playing against him Cornellá, but the kid showed from the first moment the desire. His imposing physique imposed him on the grass and he was seen very close to the area del Alavés from the beginning. His offensive vocation allowed him to rescue the ball that was loose in the area for the Guinean to put it to Trincão and this will send you to the bottom of the net.

Koeman complained about the referees at a press conference

With 18 years and 25 days gives his first assistance in the League, but not everything was going to be good. He also made rookie mistakes. A frontal ball that he wanted to happen to a colleague was rescued by Rioja who faced the goal and beat Ter Stegen. A goal that put the rival back into the game.

He was able to recover a few minutes later, but Trincão did not have the same generosity that he in the first goal and did not give him a pass that left him Ilaix with an empty goal where you just have to push. The Portuguese shot and Pacheco deflected if Tito. Again a tight score would force Koeman to make changes and he would be chosen. Something more than 60 minutes would have to demonstrate its potential. Good feelings left on the field and above all a lot of attitude, something that at certain times Barça has lacked. His teammates responded and that mistake didn’t lead to much with the three more goals scored by the team.
