Memphis saves FC Barcelona
FC Barcelona has Sunday thanks to Memphis Depay a new victory booked in La Liga. The Orange striker came against Elche CF as a substitute within the lines and used a crucial penalty in the final phase: 1-2.
The penalty was given on the advice of the VAR after Memphis was stopped during an action by Elche defender Antonio Barragán, who got the ball against his arm. From 11 yards, Memphis shot hard into the top corner.
On a visit to Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero, Barcelona had fallen behind on the stroke of half-time due to a goal by Fidel Chaves de la Torre. After an hour, Ferran Torres signed for the equalizer.

Memphis, just like Luuk de Jong, who did not get playing minutes, had a reserve role at Barcelona. Frenkie de Jong was in the starting line-up and was brought to the side twenty minutes before time by coach Xavi.
After a lesser period, Barcelona is working on a good series. The Catalans recorded their third league win in a row and are already eight games unbeaten in all competitions.
Thanks to the strong performances, Xavi’s team is third in La Liga, although the championship does not seem to be in it. Leader Real Madrid has fifteen points more, although ‘The Royal’ has also played one more game.
