FC Barcelona faced Manchester United in the first leg of the 2022-2023 European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League Round of 16 playoff held at Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain on the 17th at 2:45 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time) and drew 2-2. Reaped.
Barcelona took a 1-0 lead with Marcos Alonso scoring the opening goal in the 5th minute of the second half, but allowed Marcus Rashford to equalize in the 7th minute of the second half, and Jules Kunde scored an own goal in the 14th minute of the second half. Barcelona avoided defeat with Rafinha’s goal in the 31st minute of the second half.
After the match, UEFA delivered an interview with Alonso, the protagonist of the opening goal, through the official website.
Alonso lost his father, former Barcelona player Marcos Alonso Pena, nine days ago. Pena was a winger who played for Barcelona in the 1980s, winning one Spanish Primera Liga title and one Copa del Rey title. The goal scored in the game immediately after was inevitably different. Alonso looked up at the sky after scoring.
“It was a goal made with good team play. We controlled the game for a long time and United turned it around in just 10 minutes,” Alonso said.
“The goal I scored was a special goal scored for my family. I left a small ceremony for everyone who supported me and my family last week,” he explained.
Alonso emphasized, “We have an away game next week. We have another chance. We must win and come back to Barcelona.”
Meanwhile, Barcelona, who failed to win at home, will play the second leg of the round of 16 playoff on the 24th at Manchester United’s home stadium, Old Trafford in Manchester, England.
