This is a stadium where Barcelona have gone white as a sheet. Failing to win their last five encounters at Celta Vigo’s fortress, Barcelona know they have a tough nut to crack in their second encounter of the new season.
Also, with Celta Vigo having had a solid start to the season, this can easily slip into a defeat for Barcelona. Undefeated in three encounters, Celta Vigo are currently on their longest unbeaten spin in the league, one the side will be looking to keep intact at a stadium where its lost only twice in its last 13 appearances.
Sergio Busquets finds Antoine Griezmann down the right. The Frenchman cuts the ball back for Jordi Alba on the other side and he plays a one-two with Philippe Coutinho, but the Brazilian’s ball is too strong and goes out for a goal kick.
Griezmann connects with a volley on the edge of the area after a Celta defender heads the ball into his path, but the Frenchman’s effort is well over. Coutinho, Alba and Fati link up on the left, but the ball is played back and Clement Lenglet’s crossfield ball is intercepted.
Coutinho finds Fati on the edge of the box, the youngster skips past a defender and dinks a lovely shot with the outside of his right foot into Ivan Villar’s bottom-right corner. Great goal!
