Second appearance and first start for Memphis Depay with FC Barcelona, in the early evening, against VfB Stuttgart, in a friendly. Spectators at the Mercedes-Benz Arena will get their money’s worth. At the break, the Catalans lead 2-0 thanks in particular to a superb achievement by the Dutch striker.
While Antoine Griezmann had offered him the opportunity to unlock his goal counter from the penalty spot for his first appearance in Blaugrana, against Girona (3-1), tonight Memphis Depay offered himself a solo number in the German area. Long opening of Frenkie de Jong, precise control of the former Lyonnais, sombrero kick to avoid the defender and strikes, all right foot. That’s sublime.
