Antoine Griezmann, holder, and Ousmane Dembélé, scorer, contributed to the success of FC Barcelona against Juventus in Turin (2-0), Wednesday, in an evening of the Champions League also marked by the double of assists of Kylian Mbappé with the Paris SG.
- Sky blue: Mbappé decisive passer, Dembélé scorer -
Facing Basaksehir Istanbul (2-0), Kylian Mbappé showed that, even in difficulty, he is still dangerous, with two assists for Moise Kean.
He was the first to achieve a corner, which he rarely shot.
The former Monegasque also gave an offering to Pablo Sarabia (46th) which would have deserved a better outcome.
But "Kyky" also spoiled (37th), to chain a seventh consecutive C1 game without a goal.
His teammate Presnel Kimpembe, tenured in an unprecedented central hinge with Danilo Pereira, helped to keep the Paris SG goal untouched, despite peaks of stress during the Basaksehir counters.
Barcelona's Antoine Griezmann played the shock of the day against Juventus in Turin as the holder.
Installed at the forefront of the attack, the Mâconnais could have scored from the start but his shot hit the post (2nd).
His agreement with Lionel Messi worked rather well, like the heel of the Frenchman synonymous with a goal ball wasted by the Argentine.
Only the goal will have missed in GR7, who did not use a hot ball well in the 35th, on a withdrawal from Ousmane Dembélé, and missed the frame at a quarter of an hour from the end, well launched in the surface.
Replaced in the 89th by Junior Firpo.
Ousmane Dembélé, who has not played for the Blues since 2018, shone in his lane must.
His first attempt to overflow was stopped but the second was the right one: he hooks Federico Chiesa and continues with a strike which, thanks to the deflection of the Italian, lobe Wojciech Szczesny (14th).
His second goal this season in C1.
On a Messi offering, he then stumbled upon the goalkeeper (35th).
A little less prominent in the second half, he did not dare to strike, in a good position (60th), shortly before giving way to Ansu Fati.
Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has been solid in his role, although he has been a pivotal partner with Antonio Rüdiger who was playing his first minutes this season.
His presence contributed to the great success in Krasnodar (4-0) of the "Blues" of Frank Lampard, who left N'Golo Kanté (entered in the 70th) and Olivier Giroud on the bench.
- Overall: Rabiot in difficulty -
Like all of Juve, Adrien Rabiot suffered in midfield and struggled to recover the balls confiscated by Frenkie de Jong and Lionel Messi.
A difficult match where he did not make an error but did not make a difference either, simply putting himself in sight on an off target (70th).
Replaced in the 83rd by Federico Bernadeschi.
