Impressed by his daring and work ethic

FC Barcelona started the competition on Sunday evening with a 4-2 victory over Real Sociedad, which lost for the 24th time in a row at Camp Nou. There, 20,384 spectators saw how Martin Braithwaite was the surprising star with two goals and an assist with the liberating goal by Sergi Roberto shortly before time. Still, Memphis Depay, Frenkie de Jong and Gerard Pique also receive the compliments.

“In recent months, football has rewarded cooperative play. Chelsea’s victories in the Champions and Italy at the European Championship show a clear trend. Barca is clinging to that story to learn to live without Lionel Messi. Finally, a team as a counterpart to the collection of stars at Paris Saint-Germain, already christened the new Gal√°cticos,” writes the Catalan newspaper Diario Sport.

Confidence on the ball

,, Koeman now has a problem, which may be an opportunity. He has a team without a star that can simplify the road to victory. It is a group that radiates what they want and can be a close team, clear after the first half against Real Sociedad. It was a promising performance, especially from Memphis. The Dutchman, the purest talent the team still has, was the first to defend back. He amazed the fans with his talent and confidence on the ball.”
