Pedri 8/10, Messi scores as Barca deliver much-needed response vs. Ronaldo-less Juventus

Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi were in a tight spot when Barcelona defeated Clasico Juventus 2-0 in the Real Madrid Champions League on Wednesday. Dembele opened the scoring in the first half with a deflection from distance, while Messi scored three points from a late penalty kick after Ansou Fati was hit in the penalty area.

Alvaro Morata scored three offside goals for Zhuva, who finished the match after 85 minutes after the red card of Merih Demiral with 10 men. Only one day after the resignation of club president Josep Maria Bartomeu, Barca took a serious and necessary step in the right direction.

Pedry was a surprise star this weekend in Clasiko, but it was like a game where he really announced himself to the world. In this show the 17-year-old forward plays a major role in the team of Ronald Coeman this season.

Dembele’s goal – his second in a week – will also be of great help in building confidence in the Frenchman. Now all he has to do is stay in shape.

Barca now has six points from two Champions League games and meets from there in the round of 16. The next double at Dynamo Kiev, followed by a visit to Ferencvarosh, has to finish it all before they can play the last game in Group G at 8. December at Camp Noe to meet Zhuva.

Barca lost Ronald Araujo to an injury and left Gerard Peak and Clement Langlet without cover in the middle of the defense. Samuel Umtity was also injured and when Pic was suspended, Frankie de Jong had to replace him at headquarters. Araujo will be tested on Thursday for the hip problem.

Another small complaint is that this game could have been packed earlier. Messi, Dembele and Antoine Griezman are guilty of missed opportunities and Barca must improve their performance for the goal.

Management figure of 10

7 — Kuman defeated Andrea Pirlo at his best in this dispute between the two largest parties in Europe. Pedry and Dembele’s choice turned out to be a master.

Player score (1-10; 10 = best. Players reported after 70 minutes will not be scored)

GK Neto, 6 — Morata had excluded three goals from the VAR, but the goalkeeper didn’t have much to do in terms of a real save against his former club.

DF Sergi Roberto, 6 – Reliable performance on the right side, but it’s hard to believe he’s done enough to overtake Sergino Dest hierarchically.

DF Ronald Araujo, 6 – A young Uruguayan international didn’t look down at this level before injuring himself at the end of the first half.

DFI Clement Langlet, 6… With Peak gone, he led the last four. He defended himself well and was put under impressive pressure from behind.

DF Jordi Alba, 6. He took some good positions, but he was a bit chaotic. A big chance to get thrown over the bar.

MF Miralem Pjanic, 6 – Passed the ball much earlier – in dangerous areas – but you can see from this side what he adds when he passes completely. Much more mobile and active than Sergio Busquets.

MF Frenkie de Jong, 7 — Filled the middle section in the second half and did a very good job with Langlet.

FW Ousmane Dembele, 7 — He scored the first goal and then became more confident. The joy of seeing him run with the ball at full speed, even though his decision in the last period still requires some work.

FW Antoine Griezmann, 7 — Had some good times, including a setback to give Messi a chance, but was found volunteering in front of a goal. We hit a tree early and missed a good chance in the second half.

FW Pedry, 8… It already seems to be a market of 5 million euros. With his sensitivity, technique and cunning he turned Juan Cuadrado into a scary evening in the boat on the left.

FW Lionel Messi, 8 — Well connected to the rest of Barcas’ attack and would have had several passes if his teammates had done better. His third goal of the season was scored late, but he is still waiting for his first goal in open play.


MF Sergio Busquets, 6 — Came to pick up the wounded Araujo, swapped his position with De Jong and helped Barca onto the field.

FW Ansu Fati, N/R — Was filed late, but still found time to win a penalty.

DF Junior Firpo, N/R — Replace Grizman in 89th. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

FW Martin Braithwaite, N/R — Koeman stopped him after Barca already scored a second goal.
