Due to the fault of the Barca’s defense, at the beginning of the game, they were about to concede a goal. In the 7th minute, the Barca defenders failed to clear the ball and so, Hermoso took the Conakry shot. By touching the Firpo’s leg, it was hit the post but went outside. In the 19th minute, once again Ter Stegen kept the net clean amazingly. From the right side, Hermoso took the shot but could not escape the goalkeeper. Atletico played aggressive football in the first 20 minutes but later, Barcelona kept returning to the game. But, the defense of Atletico was quite strong and when Messi-Suarez got the ball, the Atletico players chased them down and so, they could not break the defense.
In the 36th minute, Suarez took a speedy shot from outside of the box but missed. Five minutes later, the German goalkeeper saved Barcelona. This time, he stopped the head of Morata. Bad luck for Barcelona and if not, they could score a goal just two minutes later. The head of Pique was stopped by the crossbar.
