In the 50th minute of the Spanish Super Cup semi-final against Real Sociedad in Barcelona, the Basque team had a chance to equalize against the same man who left them behind.
Just five minutes after the break Frenkie De Jong, who scored the goal for Barcelona with a beautiful team goal before the break, won the ball.
The central midfielder had handled the ball after a cross from Mikel Merino. To be honest, it really wasn’t to be prevented. De Jong did his job – maybe even beyond – by tracing all the way back to the penalty area. His defensive efforts were severely punished.
Mikel Oyarzabal stepped forward and used a unique stutter-step technique before hitting the ball in pushed the lower corner and sent Marc-Andre ter Stegen with his beautiful stroke in the wrong direction.
