The Catalan club owes the three points to its old guard, defender Gerard Pique, who scored the winning goal in the 36th minute.
Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman, managed to win his second bet in a crucial week, which saw him beat Valencia 3-1 in the league, and he will meet in his third bet with his arch-rivals Real Madrid in the first “El Clasico” between them this season next Sunday.
The “Blaugrana” shook the dust of its two first matches against Bayern Munich 3-0 and Benfica with the same result, and suffered three defeats at home, “Camp Nou” in the main continental competition, in the worst series for the club that did not go through this bad stage in terms of results. He had previously suffered the same number of defeats in 79 matches, with 59 wins and 12 draws.
Barcelona boosted its hopes of qualifying for the next league by abandoning the bottom of the standings for Dynamo Kiev in particular, after raising its score to 3 points, as it hopes that Bayern, the leader of the group, will do him a favor by defeating its Portuguese host, Benfica, as the latter’s balance will freeze at 4 points in second place. .
