Barcelona’s problems persist despite their victory in the Spanish League opener

There were some worries, but no cause for celebration, as Barcelona’s Spanish League title defense got underway on Sunday. For Barcelona, losing Rafinha early in the first half to their opponents proved to be too much, as they were unable to reverse Kohan’s goal. The league opener against Getafe ended in a scoreless draw after a VAR decision for a late-game incident was ignored.

Coach Xavi expressed his disapproval when questioned about it by saying, “If this is the product that La Liga wants to sell, it’s a shame.” After being summoned to a meeting with authorities regarding his absence in the dishonest 70th minute, Xavi criticized the refereeing.

Key Moments Intensify: Rafinha’s Ejection Shakes Barcelona

The match’s tension increased when Rafinha was ejected in the 42nd minute after Getafe’s Gastón lvarez elbowed him in the head. Barcelona was down a man until Jaime Mata of Getafe was shown a second caution for a foul on Ronald Arajo in the 57th minute.

Around the 10-minute mark of stoppage time, Arajo was fouled inside the penalty area, and Barcelona mistakenly believed they had won a penalty kick. However, a study of the film showed that Barcelona midfielder Gavi handled the ball during the buildup.

There was no handball in the sequence, Xavi observed in response to the circumstance. Only very obvious handballs, they promised, would be called, but that wasn’t the case. It was totally out of place.

New Chapter Begins: Barcelona Unveils Ilkay Gündoğan

Barcelona unveiled Ilkay Gündoan, their new midfielder, following their elimination from the Champions League against Manchester City the previous campaign. While Atlético Madrid opened their season with a match against Granada on Monday, Real Madrid won 2-0 against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.

Due of Beneathz’s start with Celta Vigo, Osasuna defeats them at home.

Beginning with a 2-0 home loss against Osasuna, Rafa Benitez’s time with Celta Vigo came to an end. Celta gave up a goal in each half, which was a difficult start for the seasoned manager who replaced Offside.

At the Balaidos Stadium, Celta only managed one shot that found the target. For Osasuna, which placed seventh last year and earned a spot in the Europa Conference League, Rubén Garca and Moi Gómez scored goals.

“When you face a team that’s capable of competing in Europe and has retained the core of their squad, you can notice that there are still certain aspects we lack,” remarked Benitez. We’ll do everything we can to fix it and, if we can, incorporate the new additions through transfers.”


Before and after leading Newcastle, Benitez served as the manager of Everton in England. Between, he had a job in China. He took over a Celta squad that placed 13th in La Liga the previous campaign.

Betis Secures Late Victory

Real Betis defeated Villarreal 2-1 as a result of a stoppage-time goal from Josué Joo in the 95th minute. Villarreal sought to continue their successful season after almost missing out on a Champions League spot the previous year.

Ayoze Pérez of Manuel Pellegrini’s Betis scored the game’s first goal in the 20th minute, while Jorge Cuenca of the home club equalized in the 61st. Josué Joo’s header from the champion’s area proved to be the thrilling winner.

Isco, a former Madrid player, made his Betis debut after his transfer.
