Athletic Club has lost 0-2 against FC Barcelona in San Mamés. Messi and Paulinho have been the authors of the goals.

It can be said that our team has regained sensations in terms of play, but it has not been able to add points against a rival that has suffered from the start and that has taken to perfection the great quality that many of their players have.

If Ter Stegen was initially responsible for aborting the rojiblancas options, the appearance of Messi has tilted the game towards the Catalan side. In fact, from 0-1 until the break the azulgranas have had their best minutes.

On the other hand, in the second half Athletic has been able to maintain a high rhythm of match and to dominate it from beginning to end, but without success in front of the goal. To make matters worse, FC Barcelona have increased their advantage in the last minutes of the match.

Bittersweet taste, because the points are sought, but the mind is already set in the all-important European commitment on Thursday against the Ostersunds FK. Hopefully the improvement will be reflected in points that keep the team in the continental fight.
