Carried by Dembele and Aubameyang, Barcelona win against Vigo

Barça has almost secured its second place in La Liga by winning against Celta Vigo (3-1) during the 36th day on Tuesday. Ousmane Dembélé has been very good, with two new assists: he has given 11 in the last 13 La Liga matches!

His first against the Galicians, achieved after having notably put a small bridge on Galan, allowed Depay to open the scoring (30th). The second of the “Mosquito” was for Aubameyang (48th). In the meantime, the former Arsenal player had already scored, after an action from Depay (41st). Deprived of Busquets (suspended), Pedri and Nico Gonzalez (injured), Xavi had decided to line up a very attacking 4-2-3-1. It paid off offensively.

Dirty night for Ronald Araujo

Defensively, it was another story, even on the power play (Murillo was sent off in the 58th minute). Ronald Araujo had a bad evening. In the 14th, he made up for his mistake in extremis by coming back to Aspas. A disagreement between the Uruguayan and ter Stegen then allowed the Celta striker to score his 18th goal of the season (50th). Araujo ended the match in hospital, hit in the head in a collision with Gavi and suffered a concussion.

Too altruistic, Aspas avoided a headache for Barça by wasting a huge opportunity in the 69th. In the first half, ter Stegen avoided an equalizer at 1-1 by making a superb save on a shot from Galhardo. Xavi’s yard is clearly behind…
