Barcelona hat trick’ explosion…Actually, it was my old team.
Oriole Soldevilla was from Barcelona.
Inter City lost 3-4 to Barcelona in the round of 32 of the Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) in the 2022-23 season at Estadio José Rico Perez in Alicante, Spain, at 5 a.m. on the 5th (Korea Standard Time).
It was a game in which Barcelona’s strong dominance was expected. That’s because Barcelona, along with Real Madrid, is one of the leading candidates for the Copa del Rey, a team called the prestigious Spanish La Liga. Inter City, on the other hand, is a team in the Spanish third division.
I could tell the difference just by looking at the starting lineup. Barcelona put forward players who can start in the league except Pablo Torre, who was born in 2003, and goalkeeper Inaki Pe정도a. Ronald Arauho, Sergio Busquets, Usman Dembele, Jordi Alba, Frank Kesie and Jules Kunde started.
Contrary to expectations, Inter City played on par with Barcelona. Of course, Barcelona had the lead in the game, but Inter City placed a lot of defense in front of the box and saved one opportunity that came to them with a sharp counterattack. Inter City’s counterattack hit Barcelona several times. Although they never made a turnaround, Inter scored an equalizer three times, holding Barcelona back and leading the game to extra time.
After extra time, they lost, but Inter City deserved applause. This was all the more so considering the difference in power. Barcelona had Ansu Fati, Gabi, and Hafinha as substitutes, while Inter City’s substitutes did not know the names if they had not watched Inter City’s game.
Soldevilla was largely responsible for Inter City’s ability to balance the game three times. Soldevilla scored a hat-trick in the 14th, 29th and 41st minutes of the second half. In La Liga, not many players score hat tricks against Barcelona`s but players from the third division succeeded.
In fact, Soldevilla was from Barcelona`s Soldevilla played for Barcelona’s youth team from 2018 to 2020, and from 2020, he moved to Birmingham City in England and spent the rest of his youth. It was last year that Soldevilla started playing for Intercity.
