Ousmane Dembele is turning up to be Barcelona’s away game savior
Ousmane Dembele has scored seven goals this season for Barcelona and five of them have came at decisive moment in an away fixture. It seems Dembele is turning up to be Barcelona’s away game savior with his limited opportunity.
He has been controversially in news recently for negative reasons. He was reported to be irresponsible not coming to the training ground on time, not interacting with other players, and especially it was visible when he arrived late for a Barcelona match at Camp Nou and joined them to support them only from the stands. But when the day comes to deliver the result, Dembele was once again the focal point.
Barcelona seems to be losing the grip at top with Atletico Madrid fancying their chance to go on top with a victory over them thanks to Diego Costa’s 77th minute strike, Dembele come to rescue a point for his team in the 90th minute. He strikes brilliantly to slip it under the legs of Jan Oblak after receiving a great ball in the penalty area.
It’s Dembele fifth strike at crunch moment in the game. In Spanish Super Cup, it was Dembele’s strike in the 78th minute which won Barcelona trophy. When Barcelona were struggling against Real Valladolid on a poor pitch, there also Dembele came to rescue with his brilliant strike.
At Anoeta against Real Sociedad, it was also Ousmane Dembele who finds the winner. They were struggling against the hosts after Aritz Elustondo strikes early in the game, but two quick second-half goals from Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele win the match for Barcelona.
Rayo Vallecano seems to walking away with three points in Vallecas when Jose Angel Pozo and Alvaro Garcia Rivera strikes in first-half in reaction to Luis Suarez early goal, but there also Dembele come to rescue with his 87th minute equalizer and then Suarez win the match with his 90th minute strike.
And now in Wanda Metropolitano, Dembele once again come to rescue. This time he only salvaged a point for his team to keep themselves up at the point tables. Alaves failed to register a victory over Leganes and couldn’t move themselves up at the table, but Sevilla still have got a chance to top the table with a victory over Real Valladolid today.
We hope Dembele finds more playing time and especially in away games. Keeping his problems aside, he seems to be lucky for Barcelona in away games.
