Barcelona turned the tide of the league match in its final minutes. Having already lost 0:2, I quickly brought the score up to 3:2. Lewandowski first scored a goal with contact and then an equalizer. He did it all in less than five minutes. In fact, this was his only good chance that evening.
The great performance and good effectiveness in recent weeks (the fifth match in a row the Pole played with a goal for Barcelona) have postponed discussions about the role our sniper should play in the team, at least for some time. After a poor performance at the start of the season, even Spain had doubts about the striker’s level.
“There are no nines like this in football anymore.”
“Respect for Lewandowski,” writes the Marca journalist. In his text, he also asks the question, “Who wants to send him into retirement?”
“His feeling in front of goal lifted the spirit of Barcelona, who had previously been completely neutralized by Celta. He will always be a guarantor of goals. He has not been the best version of himself for a long time. Since his return from the Camp Nou.” “At the World Cup, he had many doubts about many aspects of his performance. But he could score goals. Even in sleep. There is no such number 9 in football anymore,” we read.
Catalan daily newspapers also appreciate how well the Pole performs his duties.
“It’s not just that he played a very good game. But if the striker has only two chances and converts them into goals, then he has done a great job,” we read on the Mundo Deportivo website. “Celta’s defenders made his life miserable until he finally rebelled. He appeared when the team was already sinking,” Sport added.
After six matches played this season, Lewandowski has scored five goals, and he, along with Jude Bellingham, tops the scorers list. The Englishman could return on Sunday, when he faces his real club, Atletico, in the derby.
