This was Sergiño Dest’s first match as a starter with Barça

FC Barcelona fell on his visit to Getafe at the Alfonso Pérez Coliseum, where the American, Sergiño Dest, added his first title with the squad led by Ronald Koeman and was very close to adding his first assist, in a play in which Lionel Messi crashed the ball into the post.

It was at minute 19 of the duel, when the American received the ball from Pedri and in turn, the American launched a diagonal for the arrival of Messi, who fired and the ball crashed into the post, in what could be the first for the Blaugrana squad, which tonight wore their alternative uniform.

Sergiño Dest became the first American to start with Barcelona in its 120-year history, in the duel against the southern Madrid club, in which the former Ajax player saw action in the 90 minutes and was cautioned at the end of the match, for a foul committed against Mollejo.

Dest’s stats

The US full-back, who on this occasion occupied the position of Jordi Alba due to injury, added 92 touches of the ball, completed 50 of 61 passes (82%) and gave 2 key passes, in addition to adding 3 dribbles and 2 inningss, in his first game as a starter within the Blaugrana squad.

What follows for Sergiño Dest and Barça

The North American played his second match, after entering the exchange against Sevilla and will look for his first triumph as culé next Tuesday, when the blaugrana team debuts in the UEFA Champions League against Ferencváros, before facing Real Madrid in El Clásico.
