Slavia vs Barcelona - #NotAsCloseAsYouThink
Slavia Praha faced Barcelona but the game didn't really go as one would think. Slavia vs Barcelona was much more than one man/team show!
Champions League gameday 3 brought us a lot of amazing football action. However, one of the biggest underdogs Slavia Praha was once again a thorn in their opponents (you pick where). Slavia Praha faced Barcelona on their home turf in Eden Arena. Those Slavia fans that had the privilege to get tickets for the game will certainly sleep well tonight. They not only complicated life for Barcelona but they also put a great show for the fans.
Looking at this game on a paper and seeing, how some other big teams demolished their smaller counterparts one would think that Slavia Prague would not be far from an embarrassing loss. Hmm... is there even such a thing as an embarrassing loss against Barcelona with Messi, Suarez, and Griezmann leading a charge towards your team?
Slavia Prague was a clear underdog but boy did they play well! Inter Milan was in gameday 1 was stunned by Slavia's performance, Dortmund in gameday 2 praised their opponent and now Barcelona got a taste of resilient Slavia Praha.
Barcelona is frequently a dominating the ball possession, shots on goal, and the scoreboard. Well, today was not like any other day.
Barcelona still won the game but it was very clear that they do not have the upper hand they thought they would.
Slavia Praha prepared well for their biggest match of the season and boy were they close to stealing points from Barcelona? Hell yeah... They were so unlucky.
Watching The Game Felt Like Playing FUT in FIFA
You line up with your mediocre team against one of those pay to win guys and your first reaction is oh F*** this again! You start playing and yeah you get an early goal because the player against you has the maestro Leo Messi who scores a goal early in the game. So early actually you don't even get comfortable on your sofa yet.
That's what happened in Slavia Praha vs Barcelona game too. Slavia conceded a goal in 3rd minute of the match. Many fans feared the worst and that what often happens to FUT FIFA players too.
However, with the time you find the rhythm calm down and show your opponent that an early goal does not mean the game is over just yet. Occasionally or more frequently you foul the best players in the Barcelona team. Hey, who does not that's the only way to stop their advancement and you hope for a chance to show that even an underdog who does not have the money to buy superstar players can score.
That's what Jan Bořil did in the 50th minute of the Slavia vs Barcelona match 1-1.
Barcelona shocked and puzzled has been dealing with pesky Slavia player waves off the attack until they finally reaped fruits of hard work.
Slavia players and fans were enjoying the delirium only for 7 minutes until an unfortunate OG from Peter Olayinka putting Barcelona ahead one more time.
Slavia Praha was playing very attractive football against Barcelona and despite a loss, it did not disappoint its fans or any neutral fans watching the game.
Look at these stats Slavia actually created more chances and kept Ter Stegen busy the whole night.
