Óscar Mingueza (7.4/10) : Oscar made a brilliant assist in the first half of the match to Luuk de Jong, who took that assist quite comfortably and finished in the back of the head to get the lead to Barcelona. Oscar had a brilliant game overall as he contributed quite well whilst being one of the most active players on the field.

Gerard Piqué (8.5/10) : The Barcelona skipper played exceptionally well overall. He made some valuable clearences followed by blocking one too many incoming goal attempt shots. He was one to not be shy of ground and Aerial duels and he went on to win almost every duel. He also had a couple of tries at goal but couldn’t convert.

Ronald Araújo (7.3/10) : Araújo was really up and running in the whole game as his gameplay created a big goals scoring chance for Barcelona. He was one non hesitant player when it came to duels and he won all duels he came across with passion.

Eric Garcia (7.5/10) : Garcia had a wonderful time out in the middle. He contributed well in the defence and followed that by doing his job in the midfield on occasions and earned a healthy passing rate.

Nico González (6.9/10) : Not one of the best games for Nico. His confidence seemed to have shaken on the field as he lost posession quite a few times. He had just an off target attempt and a couple of ground duel wins. Tough game.

Frenkie de Jong (7.3/10) : Frenkie played a vital role in the defence, including his four major clearences. He was there for Barcelona throughout the game, passing the ball around accurately and ensured that good gameplay was a must.

Riqui Puig (7.1/10) : Over-all, Riqui Puig had contributed in every department of the game. He had a decent enough contribution in the defence. He had a shy at goal but was off target on attempt. He did seem to do an average job at duels as he was a little off while play.

Ilias Akhomach (7.7/10) : Ilias did everything in his capability and created a huge goal scoring chance for Barcelona. He had earned himself two on target attempts at goal but neither of them finished in the back of the net.

Luuk de Jong (7.1/10) : Luuk de Jong scored a beautiful goal in the first-half to make it 1-0 for Barcelona. Throughout his game, Luuk had one on target and four off target attempts off which two of them were two huge chances missed and two hit woodwork. Very unlucky day for him.

Ferran Jutglà (6.7/10) : The forward could just earn himself one attempt at goal which was off target. He barely made an impact to the side and was finding it difficult to contribute as well.
