Barça approved and suspended: Messi gives the crown to Mbappé

Ter Stegen: He prevented the team from leaving with a scandal win. He made two surprising blunders trying to clear a ball. In the goals he could not do much more as they were all practically point-blank.

Dest: Surpassed at all times by Mbappé, who did what he wanted with the Blaugrana side. He always left him a lot of space and he never knew how to stop it. He continues to show very worrying game deficiencies. He was relieved by Mingueza.

Pique: The central made a superhuman effort to be in the field. His return seemed to infuse the team with morale, but the forces held out for just over 45 minutes. He was very active, protesting, ordering and shouting, demonstrating his commitment and leadership. But the fuel meter began to fail him in the second half, with serious problems to defend. In any case, we must applaud his sacrifice for trying to help the team, albeit unsuccessfully.

Lenglet: Kean’s header goal in the corner is his fault. He had to score it, but he slipped away with astonishing ease, finishing at will.

Sunrise: Kean’s power left him few options to try to look up. The side was overwhelmed by the superiority of the rival. His connection with Messi was non-existent.

Sergio Busquets: You begin to notice the weight of age in extreme and demanding situations. Verratti literally ate his toast. Overwhelmed and without ideas, his game led to insubstantial and predictable actions.

De Jong: Caused the penalty play after a minimal touch from Kurzawa. That was the best action for the Dutchman, who never really knew what the field had to do.

Pedri: He is 18 years old and games like this will also help him grow as a footballer. His game was very disappointing, with little presence in the field and without combining with criteria or success. He was overcome both physically and in desire.

Dembélé: The French forward was very erratic in the field, giving a lot of insecurity to his teammates. Also defensively he was very little concentrated, leaving a highway to Kurzawa. He should learn from his compatriot Mbappé to know the meaning of talent and efficiency in equal parts.

Griezmann: Very discreet party from the French, as has become customary since he signed for Barcelona, ​​where he disappears in important games. The fight and work begins to be a simple excuse for a player who came with the crack poster. He was close to scoring a rebound in a bad clearance by Keylor Navas.

Messi: From today the PSG sheikh will think much more when someone advises him to change Messi for Mbappé. Leo’s game has been the one of the last big events in the Champions League, with little presence, without success and with an increasingly disconcerted face. Let’s hope it is not his Blaugrana epilogue in the Champions League because it would be too sad to do it. He scored a penalty and little else.


Mingueza: It showed that today it is a better option than Dest on the right wing.

Trincao: He pulled a slalom from his sleeve that looked like he was riding his Lamborghini. In any case it ended in nothing.

Riqui Puig: As always in the youth squad he came out with a lot of desire to do well.

Pjanic: He put strength and presence in the midfield, but he came too late.

Braithwaite: Almost scored in a center in Dembélé. He already did more than Griezmann in attack.
