Barça dedicates the last victory to Xavi at the Pizjuán

Fermín, with the last goal of the League, made it 1-2 over Sevilla


FC Barcelona beat Sevilla FC (1-2) this Sunday in the last match of the 2023/24 LaLiga EA Sports season that took place at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski and Fermín, one in each part, to give Xavi Hernández a farewell with victory.

The three points, without any impact on the table, do not overly sweeten the Catalan coach’s farewell, which was rushed in recent weeks. On Friday the bomb exploded and Xavi will not be on the bench of a Barça team next season that, after a blank season, will have to work hard.

The culmination of an unfortunate campaign, where they were far from defending the League they won last year, was a match with nothing at stake against a Sevilla side with its own internal war. The Pizjuán stands chanted ‘management, resignation’ many times and, on the pitch, the team complied despite the fact that they will also have a new coach shortly, with the goodbye of Quique Sánchez Flores, although he did not have a goal.

The lack of tension was especially noticeable in defense and the duel had a lot of alternative in both areas. In a good visitor play, between Lamine Yamal, Pedri and Cancelo, the Portuguese put in the cross that Lewandowski finished off with his spur (0-1), although the Pole (19) needed five more goals to equal Artem Dovbyk (24 ) in the Pichichi.

Sevilla had theirs with Pedrosa and, shortly after conceding, with Lukebakio who suffered a save from Ter Stegen. Agoumé also forgave the locals, unmarked in a corner kick, but Sevilla found a reward with En-Nesyri (1-1). Barça reacted with the help of Pedri with a desire for football.

The Canarian, who wants to sign up for the Euro Cup after a serious downturn due to injuries, burst into the game and came close to scoring on two good occasions. In addition to sharing the game, the Spanish international, with Luis de la Fuente’s pre-list this Monday, had a finish, with a header and a shot against the crossbar. After the restart, Pedri was also key.

Barça wanted to handle the ball more and control the pace of the match, without losing sight of the rival goal. For that, Fermín once again demonstrated his state of grace and, with a shot from the front, made it 1-2 half an hour from the end. The exchange of arrivals continued until the end but that of Fermín, who hopes to be the surprise for this EURO, was the last of the course.

En-Nesyri forgave and so did Mariano who was a good stimulus for the locals in the final stretch. For the visitors, Joao Félix left that bittersweet feeling of his campaign as a Barça player. The Pizjuán chanted for Quique and Xavi received the affection of his players, after being renewed and fired from the club of his life in a few weeks.
