Immediately after the lifting of crowd restrictions, Barça come from behind to win a game for the first time since December 2020
Barça responded to a goal from Valencia’s José Gayá after just five minutes to go on to win 3-1 at Camp Nou on Sunday. And that’s news, because it’s the first time the team has managed to win a game at home after conceding first since 16 December 2020, when they bounced back to beat Real Sociedad 2-1.
Ten months later
In these ten months, Barça had managed to salvage draws at Camp Nou against the same Valencia and Eibar too last season, and against Granada this term but this was the first occasion in all that time that they’d ended up with all three points, all thanks to a fabulous strike from Ansu Fati, a Memphis penalty and the killer blow delivered by substitute Philippe Coutinho.
In the last two seasons, Barça share the lead with Valencia and Atlético Madrid in the ranking for the most points won after going behind. Those 24 points are clear indication of how Ronald Koeman and his men never give up and have been ready to fight against adversity on repeated occasions.
Next on the list are Levante (23 points), Real Madrid (22) and Betis (16).
