Marc-André ter Stegen

Was caught out for Girona’s goal when he burst off his line but did not make a good challenge and subsequently left an empty net. Other than that, he was very good.

Nelson Semedo

Did not offer a lot in terms of attacking and seemed hesitant to get forward at times but was good defensively. Has reportedly picked up an injury that will keep him out for five weeks.

Samuel Umtiti

Was at fault for the Girona goals he wasn't quick enough to react. Did not really have a lot to deal with after that.

Gerard Piqué

Not much he could have done for Girona’s goal and after that the away side offered very little in terms of attack making it a relatively straightforward game for Piqué.

Jordi Alba

With the width provided by Dembélé and Coutinho, Alba did not need to get forward as much as possible and so was not involved a lot in the attacking department. Defensively, he made one tackle, one interception and four clearances.

Sergio Busquets

Was constantly an outlet for the defence and helped get the ball forward as much as possible, a typically Busquets performance. Substituted in the 68th minute.

Phillipe Coutinho

Coutinho’s best pefroamnce in a Barça shirt to date. He was creative, dangerous and improitnalty on the same wavelength as Messi and Suárez.

Ivan Rakitić

Rakitić’s main job was to just get the ball to the front three as much as possible and he did this week.

Ousmane Dembélé

Looked very dangersous and wasted afraid to shoot. However this did on occasion come to him not choosing the correct option and wasting some chances.

Luis Suárez

Ruthlessly efficient from Suárez. Scoring a from four shots on target is an impressive conversion rate and he also managed to assist one as well.

You say: 10

Lionel Messi

Not much more you can say than he was outstanding, paricualry in the first half. He created chance after chance and seemingly every touch he had hurt Girona.

Thomas Vermaelen

Played around a half hour but did not have to break much of a sweat.

You say: 7

Paulinho

Played 22 minutes but struggled to get involved.

You say: 6

Sergi Roberto

Only played fifteen minutes but looked good.

Ernesto Valverde

Won the game early and made subs to rest some legs.

The Team

Dominated Girona from the first minute and bounced back well to recover from a goal down. Very good in an attacking sense.
