Ousmane Dembele stepped up his game in the last minutes. It could have been a straight second defeat for Barcelona in La Liga, but somehow this gentleman managed to avoid the crisis. In 2017, he moved to Barca and had been away from the limelight, until this evening. A 90th-minute equalizer is what he managed to score. Together with Ernesto Valverde’s side, they managed to secure a draw of 1-1 against the Atletico Madrid.
Los Rojiblancos was taking a lead going through Diego Costa when it was just a few minutes away from taking over Barcelona. But, luck was on their side. The match ended with Dembele, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Malcolm all on the field. Finally, a desperate prayer for an equalizer was answered and the results were neither bad nor good. This is what we call the beginner’s luck and sometimes comes from the end that was long forgotten.
Valverde was happy and full of praise for Dembele kicks. He added in his comments that Dembele has confidence, a great shooting with both his feet and raw talent. So, we all hope that his kicks do the same effect as the praises.
It was one of the worse seasons for Messi, as per Marca. The Argentinian assisted the 21-year old who finally fired the nice shot all the way to home. And, this makes his assists a total of seven from 14 goals. The Atletico’s strong defense was very frustrating for Messi this evening as he had to go for a long tiring game.
