The Catalan derby between Barcelona vs Girona ended in a draw with a Girona that came out with a lot of personality and although it helps them play with one more from the 34th minute after the expulsion of Lenglet, the Girona never loosened and took a very important point away from Barcelona.
Those led by Valverde started the game trying to make rotations with an unprecedented midfield with the two Arturos and Busquets driving the strings. Valverde also gave the title to Lenglet with the intention of giving confidence to the Frenchman, who will have to play against Tottenham in Champions for the sanctioned Umtiti.
Started the game with the domain of the Barça after a goal by Messi, who celebrated being the foreigner with more games in the league with 423 matches, but the game would suffer a change after the elbow given by Lenglet to Pere Pons, with the help of the VAR the referee did not doubt and showed him the red card. Barcelona tried to rearrange sending to central Busquets while thinking who was getting out to put Umtiti. Just at that moment began the Stuani Show that would tie the game before the break.
In the second half, the sacrificed was obviously Dembélé again as he is the newest in the Barcelo attack although Suarez did not have any weight in the game. The Uruguayan who played and signed up his double was Stuani who would put the 2×1 on the scoreboard after a rebound by Ter Stegen.
Valverde resorted to the easy. He recovered the titular team. They put Coutinho and Rakitic for the Arturos and five minutes after Piqué had already tied the game with a header. There was half an hour left and everything was ready for the comeback by the Catalans, but Girona knew how to hold on and gave the first puncture to Barcelona that now shares the lead with Real Madrid with only 2 goals of difference.
