Spanish Super Cup. Barcelona – Osasuna 2:0. The road to El Clasico is open

If yesterday in the first semi-final of the Super Cup there was a show, today everything was as mundane as possible. No celebration.

Osasuna had enough for 15-20 minutes globally. Only in this segment, she fought on equal terms with Barça, responded to Christensen’s shot with an Areso moment.

Then, despite all their crisis, the Catalans took the ball and began to monotonously break through the Reds’ defensive ranks. It was difficult, because there were a lot of injured players, and in addition, Raphinha was injured during the match. Nevertheless, if Lewandowski had been younger, he would have closed the game by half-time – he had two excellent chances, but spoiled.

Pamplona once again snapped back before the break with a chance from Budimir, who was covered by Peña in time, but this was her last outing.

Already in the second half, Barça pressed the opponent in class, first of all, veterans – it was Gundogan who found Robert with a vertical pass, and the Pole finally scored.

Subsequently, Lewandowski could have scored a brace, but Areso threw himself under the ball. I also remember a pass with a shot from Felix – Herrera saved it.

Osasuna, in turn, attacked fragmentarily, which is not surprising – Pamplona has zero away wins in the last five rounds of La Liga. She performed hard in the last Cup draw, but in general, her ceiling is low.

“Barça” emphasized this with a goal by Yamal in injury time – and went to rest.

Ahead of them is what this Super Cup in Saudi Arabia was about – El Clasico. It will be held in Riyadh on Sunday, January 14. Don’t miss it, or you’ll regret it later!
