Sergi Roberto and Andreas Christensen will not be able to play the second leg against PSG


Remarkable! It is perhaps one of the a lot of adjectives with which can describe the victory of the FC Barcelona in front of Paris Saint-Germain (2-3). It was a commitment in which the combined Barcelona gave a necessary step at the front to win to one of the best clubs of Europe, that had already 27 meetings without knowing the defeat in all the competitions. They exhibited a good football and knew sobreponerse to a brief space of deconcentration that the Parisians capitalised of big form.

However, in spite of the current jubilation by the incontestable triumph in front of the French, also is true that the Barcelonan picture has suffered two unlucky losses for the crash of turn in the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys (16 April). Sergi Roberto and Andreas Christensen will be absent by sanction, since both were apercibidos, when having already two yellow cardboards accumulated along the contest, by what with which received in this day, remained automatically inhabilitados for the next clash of the culés.

The one of Reus was the first player admonished of the meeting. In the minute 32, the referee Anthony Taylor showed him the yellow cardboard for making a tactical fault on Marco Asensio in the centre of the field, with the aim to detain a contragolpe that this tried to initiate. Regarding Andreas Christensen, his caution was occurred in the ‘sunset’ of the commitment, in the minute 88, after committing an infringement against Warren Zaïre Emery to detain his advance.

The FC Barcelona only lost to two of seven apercibidos

Fortunately, for the FC Barcelona, the damage has been a lot of minor of what could have been. It fits to stand out that the Barcelona picture faced this meeting with a total of seven players apercibidos, of which only lost to the Danish and to the Catalan, avoiding the sanction of Lamine Yamal, Ferran Torres, Ronald Araújo, Joãor Félix and Frenkie of Jong. All they had an active participation in the duel against Paris Saint-Germain. Now, the Barça will have to look for the way of suplir these two absences, being perhaps the most complicated the one of Andreas Christensen because of the fault of a defensive pivote.
