Ronald Koman was seen on the television screen just before the start of the match. The Barcelona coach was sitting in the gallery talking on a mobile phone. He could not be in the Bar্সa dugout today due to the ban. Maybe he was instructing the team from the gallery. But the result of the match shows that his instructions did not work. Atletico Madrid’s Barcelona lost 2-0 to Wanda Metropolitano.
Despite beating Levante 3-0 in the previous match in La Liga, Barcelona has suffered two consecutive defeats in the Champions League. In such a situation, there are doubts about the job of coach Koman. The question has arisen about the capability of PK-Depai. All in all, the Catalan club was desperate to win the match against Atletico.
The team wanted to play offensive football from the beginning of the match. They also tried to jump in the defense of the host Atletico from the beginning. But Dipai-Kutiniora could not compose a very good attack. On the contrary, Barcelona scored a goal in the 23rd minute. Thomas Lemar put Atletico ahead with a great goal from a superb pass from Luis Suarez.
After Lemar’s Goal
The camera turns to Koman, who is sitting in the gallery. The Barcelona coach has shown that nothing is happening in the defense. The reality is, too, that the PK or Destas weren’t in the position they were supposed to be to stop Lemar, just in time.
Desperate for a goal, Barcelona then tried to come up with an attack. But the Depati-Coutinhos could not defeat Atletico’s tidy defense. On the contrary, Atletico got a great opportunity in the 26th minute. But Luis Suarez could not take advantage of that opportunity.
Uruguayan striker Suarez, however, can write his name in the scoresheet in the first half. Suarez made it 2-0 for Atletico with a great shot from the right from a superb pass from Joao Felix.
The former Barcelona striker said the day before the match that he would not celebrate even if he scored a goal. He did not do that after scoring a goal. Instead, when his teammates rushed to celebrate after scoring, Suarez apologized to Barcelona fans.
No matter how much Suarez Apologizes
His goal may have led to the defeat of Barcelona’s Dutch coach Coman. After such a failure of the team, he should not have a job at Camp Nou. This is also understood in the manner of showing the anger of Koman sitting in the gallery.
In the second half, Koman was seen talking on his mobile phone once more. Maybe he was giving instructions to the assistant coach who was standing in the dugout. But that instruction did not work, he said the result of the match!
