Anju Fathi led the draw. In the 14th minute, Walibur Mempis doubled the lead and sent the ball into the net with a very accurate shot. This is the second goal of the new Barcelona “ten” this season.
Before the break, Barcelona took the lead. Anju Fathi scored from the penalty spot, and Memphis Debay did not make a mistake from eleven yards.
In the 50th minute, the “Duma of Catalonia” made an interesting joint move. Frankie de Jong and Sergino Test exchanged passes in the penalty area, the ball collided with Fathi’s leg and he threw a shot with his left foot. Jasper Chilsen struggled to keep the ball in the corner.
A few dozen seconds later, Carlos Solar responded. “Parsi” forgot the midfielder who scored in the defensive post.
The decisive blow for Valencia was settled by Philippe Coutinho. In the 85th minute, Brazilian Sergino Testa took the ball from the right wing and scored the first goal of the season from close range.
With this goal in mind, Coman decided to let Sergio Aguero on the pitch. Argentina officially made their debut for Barcelona.
