Trainer Ronald Koeman has again been hit in La Liga with FC Barcelona. It was 0-0 against Cadiz. Barça ended the game with 10 men after Frenkie de Jong was shown off and Memphis Depay missed a couple of huge opportunities.
At FC Barcelona, in addition to Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay, Luuk de Jong was also in the base.
Barca were unable to create much before halftime on a visit to Cádiz. In the 51st minute, Depay had the best chance of the game, but he missed the ball after a great cross by Luuk de Jong.

Not much later, Frenkie de Jong got 2 yellow cards in quick succession and so Barça had to continue with 10 men. Koeman’s team escaped defeat a few times, but in injury time Depay again missed a huge opportunity. Koeman was also shown red and is now suspended for at least the next game. It remained 0-0 in Cádiz and that is in any case another blow for the top club in decline.
Luuk de Jong was substituted in the 68th minute. That was 3 minutes after Frenkie de Jong was sent off with a red card.
On Monday, Barça drew 1-1 against Granada and last week lost 3-0 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. They are 7 points behind leaders Real Madrid in La Liga, although Real has played one more game.
