Hafinya couldn’t hold back his anger.
Barcelona drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the first leg of the 2022-23 season European Football Association (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) round of 16 playoff held at Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain at 2:45 am (Korean time) on the 17th. 슬롯사이트 recorded Although they avoided defeat, it was not a positive result considering that the second leg was at Old Trafford.
It is not the UEFA Champions League (UCL). It is UEL. The two teams also met in the playoffs that decided the round of 16. As befits a confrontation between two world-renowned teams, this match drew more attention than any other UCL match.
Both teams were looking for a win. We launched the best lineup and came out with the best tactics. Barcelona tried to take the lead by using the home advantage to increase possession. Man Utd was somewhat behind in possession, but pursued ‘efficiency’ through a counterattack after the player’s defense.
The first half ended 0-0, but a slugfest continued in the second half. Barcelona took the lead first. In the 5th minute of the second half, in a corner kick situation, Marcos Alonso scored the opening goal with a header shot from Rafinha’s cross. However, the pursuit of Man Utd immediately followed. In the 7th minute of the second half, Rashford, who received Fred’s pass, shook Barcelona’s net with a simple right-footed shot.
Man Utd succeeded in connecting the atmosphere. In the 14th minute of the second half, Rashford’s cross was hit by Fernandez and refracted, and the ball hit Jules Kunde again and went into Barcelona’s goal. The flow completely went over to Man United. But Barcelona were strong. In the 31st minute of the second half, Rafinha equalized and balanced the score. The game was tight until the end, but the score was 2-2.
A disappointing draw. The Barcelona players were unhappy with this result as it was played at home. In particular, Rafinha, who recorded one goal and one assist, was substituted in the 38th minute of the second half, and expressed anger at this decision as well.
The scene where Rafinya couldn’t win was captured. British media ‘The Sun’ posted the video, saying, “After being substituted out against Manchester United, Rafinha punched the chair Alonso was sitting on several times.” In fact, as soon as Rafinha sat down, he hit the chair in front of him several times, and Alonso was sitting there.
For Alonso, this can be an embarrassing situation. But he was resolute. He made no response. Rather, Jordi Alba, who was next to Alonso, stopped Rafinha.
