Barcelona’s victory in Turin was a treat for Culés. A day after getting rid of their burden in Josep Maria Bartomeu, they got a precious victory in Turin. Many players destroyed Juventus’ backline, with Ousmane Dembélé and Leo Messi combining for the first goal. However, the Man of the Match was Pedri, and everyone acknowledged it.

The 17-year-old got praise from Ronald Koeman, Claudio Marchisio, and many other people after his exhibition. Nonetheless, the youngster had the chance to swap his shirt with a star yesterday. Reportedly, Paulo Dybala, who has a big collection of jerseys, went into his opponents’ dressing room to ask for Pedri shirt.

At 17, Pedri is now one of Koeman’s favourites having started in the past two games. His dazzling performance in Turin must have cemented his place in the side. He ran past Juan Cuadrado many times and undoubtedly impressed Dybala, a big player in world football. Great from the youngster and the Argentine forward.

As a Lebanese teenager who never had the chance to support their local team, I fell in love with the club that was FC Barcelona at the start of the decade. I always was passionate about writing and this is exactly what I am looking for: sharing my insights and opinions on football.

Carles Aleña started his first game for Barça in nearly a year. His last start for his boyhood club came in December 2019 against Inter Milan, and Ronald Koeman selected him against Dynamo Kyiv after injuries decimated his squad. After his impressive display, Aleña spoke to the media.

“I’m very happy to return to the field. We played a great game and we took advantage of our chances.”

Aleña ended his ordeal with a near-Man of the Match performance away to the Ukrainians. The Spanish youngster was his team’s metronome and misplaced one solitary pass. His pass map is a joy to behold and the midfielder deserves a lot of recognition for that display.

At the beginning of the year, Ronald Koeman did not fancy Aleña at all. He and Riqui Puig were ostracised, but the two of them showed a lot of resilience against Kyiv. Hopefully, their coach opens his eyes.

“Playing with the first team requires a lot of hard work.”

We will have to wait and see whether Koeman is on the same page with the fans regarding Aleña’s performance. One thing is clear: the 22-year-old can play a crucial role in the team if used correctly.
