It was the ball that Bilbao midfielder Raul Garcia rushed in at high speed in a ball dispute. Realizing this, Gavi in a slightly lost position tried his best to rush in to clear the ball right in front of Garcia’s boot.
The Bilbao midfielder was the winner of this dispute when he successfully touched the ball, while Gavi was sprawled on the field. Fortunately, Barca’s young talent did not suffer any head injuries, despite rushing in defiantly.
Earlier in the first half, Gavi also had a situation with his head to block midfielder Dani Garcia, when the Bilbao player tried to pass the ball forward to his teammates.
On Twitter, many fans felt chills down their spines, when they witnessed Gavi’s flag and shirt colors. However, they also praised the bravery of the 18-year-old midfielder, because even when using their feet, many players did not dare to rush into that situation.
Carles Puyol – the famous former midfielder of Barca, expressed admiration for Gavi’s courage. He wrote on his personal Twitter with a brief status line: “Gavi”, with an icon of applause. Meanwhile, one fan said that Gavi should not do that, because if something bad happens, he could be seriously injured.
This season, Gavi has played 36 matches for Barca in all competitions, contributing 2 goals and 5 assists. Despite being very young, Gavi has been an indispensable pillar of the Catalan giants.
Against Bilbao, Raphinha’s only goal in the first half of injury time helped Barca win 1-0. This result helps Barca continue to hold the top of La Liga with 65 points, 9 points more than the second team Real Madrid.
