Barcelona 1-1 Espanyol – Goals and highlights – LaLiga 22/23

Barcelona 1-1 Espanyol – Goals and highlights – LaLiga 22/23

Everything was going Barcelona’s way, but somehow they only leave with a point. What a crazy game.

“A point of gold at the Spotify”

I suppose a point away at Barça is the perfect place for a cheeky dig, eh!

How Opta saw the game

For all the dominance the home side had, it flipped on a moment of madness. Then the crazy started…

Barcelona 1-1 Espanyol - Goals and highlights - LaLiga 22/23
Barcelona 1-1 Espanyol – Goals and highlights – LaLiga 22/23

14 yellows and 2 red cards from Señor Mateu Lahoz today – that’s a record for him in the Primera División.

So, that’s all the football at the Camp Nou finished for 2022.

Barcelona finish the league on top of the table but are now level on points with Real Madrid (38).

GAME OVER!!!!!!!!
​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​FT: FC BARCELONA 1-1 RCD ESPANYOL

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​And breathe!

Well, where do I start? That had everything: a penalty, a red card, another red card, a rescinded red card, more yellows that a wasps nest, fights

90+10

Corner to Barça!

90+10

LEWANDOWSKI JUST WIDE!!!!!!

90+10

Barcelona launch one last attack…

90+9

Espanyol’s manager and his staff are screaming at the referee to blow the whistle…

90+9

WHAT A CHALLENGE FROM CABRERA ON DEMBÉLÉ!

​​​​​​​He went down in the box and scooped the ball from under his feet!

90+9

Into the last minute now…

90+8

Barcelona continue to attack; Espanyol are holding on.

90+7

Free kick called for a foul by Ferran on Joselu…

90+6

Dembélé runs and runs down the wing for what seems like 100 kilometres before Puado fouls him. The Camp Nou whistles like crazy. It’s a toxic atmosphere in the stadium!

90+5

Busquets fouls Sergi Darder and Raphinha – who is on the bench – gets booked. Just about sums up this game.

90+4

Dembélé twists left and right before firing a shot high into the stands. Again.

90+3

Balde’s cross is launched low but flies past everyone and out for a throw on the other side of the pitch.

90+3

Ter Stegen does excellently well to punch the ball away.

90+2

An overhead kick from Joselu wins Espanyol a corner.

90+2

Espanyol counter and win a throw…

90

9 minutes added

90

Balde (who came on during the penalty madness along with Kounde) does well to get into the box and finds Pedri, whose shot goes wide.

Gil and Olivan OFF

AleixVidal and Ruben ON

89

Dembélé whips a wild shot high and wide from the right.

88

FERNÁNDEZ WITH ANOTHER SAVE!!!

​​​​​​​LEWANDOWSKI ONE VS ONE!!!

​​​​​​​I won’t lie to you all, I have absolutely no idea how he got there, but he did, and the goalkeeper saved.

88

Espanyol clear the ball and 90,000 people breathe for the first time in 10 minutes…

87

WHAT AN AMAZING SAVE FROM FERNÁNDEZ!!!!

​​​​​​​CHRISTENSEN SO CLOSE WITH THE HEADER!

87

Espanyol clear Dembélé’s cross…

Corner for Barça.

86

We’re back underway!

It’s Vini Souza! For the foul on Lewandowski!

Both sides down to ten!

WAIT!

Someone else has been sent off! 

79

Ok, this is madness… Lewandowski down now and there are brawls appearing everywhere like wildfires…

79

Free-kick swung high over the bar from Espanyol, who now have all the momentum!

It appears Alba said something to the referee. Barcelona with 10 men for the last 10 minutes.

I have no idea why but Mateu Lahoz has just sent off Jordi Alba…

78

ALBA SENT OFF!!!!

77

Espanyol have a dangerous free kick on the left…

I’m sorry, everyone, this is all my fault for mentioning how quiet Mateu Lahoz had been…

76

Vini Souza goes in hard on poor Pedri, and somehow Mateo Lahoz books the Barça midfielder.

75

Ferran booked for a foul.

74

Back underway.

And just like that – bam! – football gets you.

TER STEGEN GOES TO HIS LEFT BUT JOSELU STROKES IT DOWN THE MIDDLE!

73

JOSELU GOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL FOR ESPANYOOOLLLLLLLLL

MATEU LAHOZ HAS GIVEN A PENALTY FOR A FOUL ON JOSELU

MARCOS ALONSO STANDS ON HIS FOOT!

71

PENALTY FOR ESPANYOL!!!!!

70

Close for Espanyol!

Joselu wins the header but Braithwaite can’t make anything of the take-down.

69

Dare I say it? Mateo Lahoz has been fairly quiet today. He’s not had too much to shout about, which is always nice. I suppose there’e time yet…

67

Barcelona feel comfortable in this game, but it’s still only 1-0. Anything could happen, and Xavi will know that. They need another goal if they are to get rid of the nerves that may start to creep in. 

The Camp Nou don’t feel nervous, they’re screaming and shouting for their team like they’re in the Champions League final

65

CLOSE!

Ferran heads over from a Barcelona corner.

64

An unorthodox but useful clearance from Olivan’s knee after Pedri effortlessly plucked the ball out of the sky like he just took a can of beans from the shelf and proceeded to jive his way through the challenges.

62

Big chance wastedfor Espanyol, as Joselu overhits a cross from the right and it flies out of play.

Barcelona looked to be badly positioned tracking back so that could have been a great opportunity to put them under pressure. 

62

Ansu and Raphinha OFF

Dembélé and Ferran ON

61

Close call for Espanyol as Lewandowski looked to slide a pass through the defence to Rpahinha but it was well blocked. 

61

447 passes completed by Barcelona so far; 104 for Espanyol.

59

Espanyol penalised for an offside decision in the build up of a good move down the left. It ended in a nice shot that Ter Stegen did well to save. 

59

Álvaro Fernández gets off his line well to clear a ball that was played in behind towards Ansu.

56

Expósitoand Puado ON

Nico and Calero OFF
