As Barcelona went ahead of rival Real Madrid in the Spanish premier division, the Netherlands’ best player scored.
After scoring in Barcelona’s 3-0 victory over Elche, Memphis Depay gave an explanation of why he must give his all in every game this season. Depay was on target for Barcelona.
Depay scored, helping Barcelona surpass rival Real Madrid in La Liga. Following a pass from Alejandro Balde, Robert Lewandowski gave Barcelona the lead before setting up Depay for the second.
Just before halftime, Pedri’s goal was disallowed, but three minutes after the break, Lewandowski’s second of the game gave Xavi Hernandez’s team a 3-0 victory.
Depay, however, who was given a rare start, was the one who made headlines. After Raphinha and Ousmane Dembele arrived, the Dutch international fell in the standings.
But Xavi chose him over the Brazilian winger on Saturday afternoon, giving him a rare start. Depay made the most of the circumstance and explained why he must give his all each time he plays after the game.
Depay remarked following the game, “Unfortunately, I don’t play a lot of minutes this season, but I’ll keep trying to take advantage of them.
I try to take advantage of opportunities, and scoring is something I’m pleased to do, he continued.
Lewandowski and Dembele received accolades from Xavi for yet another outstanding performance. The two players have probably been Barcelona’s best this season, and after the match against Elche, Xavi was eager to compliment their efforts.
Lewandowski, according to Xavi, “is highly professional, very hard-working, and very humble.”
