Reading time : 1 min.
FC Barcelona may well have folded La Liga after the Clasico, played at Camp Nou, Sunday March 19, during the 26th day of La Liga. The Catalans have long displayed a lack of realism despite their domination, but Kessie tipped the match in added time (90th + 2) to snatch victory (2-1).
The Barcelonans had however conceded the first goal, against his camp of Araujo on a cross from Vinicius Jr (8th), but they equalized just before the break by Sergi Roberto (44th). Karim Benzema’s teammates were the most incisive, on many counterattacks, but they missed out on the last gesture. In the last ten minutes, Madrid even believed to take the advantage on a goal from Asensio, but the video invalidated the realization for a few centimeters. A few minutes later, Kessie was on the finish to offer the Catalans the victory. And twelve points ahead of the people of Madrid.
“We still have the goal average in our favour, but hey, they would have to lose four matches and we would have to win them all… Nothing is impossible, but it will be very difficult”recognized Thibaut Courtois after the match, referring to the title of champion.
