Rayo Vallecano’s Florian Lejeune Own Goal Earns Barcelona A Point In LA LIGA Game

Unai Lopez’s incredible goal was neutralized by a late own goal by Florian Lejeune, giving Barcelona a point against Rayo Vallecano.

The goal that would have decided any match put the Catalan giants behind in the 39th minute, but the hosts were unable to hold onto the lead. Lejeune extended his leg with less than ten minutes left and deflected the ball into his own net.

On Saturday afternoon, as La Liga resumed, Barcelona drew 1-1 with Rayo Vallecano thanks to a late own goal.

The Catalans needed to win to maintain pressure at the top of the table as they played their first matchback following the international break.

They began the day two points behind Real Madrid and four points behind their rivals, Girona, who are geographically closer, and were unexpectedly leading the league.

But Unai Lopez’s incredible long-range strike gave the home team the lead.

The striker’s intensity was evident when the ball came to him after his free-kick cross was cleared, and he cut across it on the volley to beat the diving Inaki Pena at the near post.

With about fifteen minutes remaining, Barcelona substituted Oriol Romeu and Ferran Torres for Joao Felix, who was having difficulty scoring, and Ilkay Gundogan, a former midfielder for Manchester City.

Florian Lejeune had to extend his leg with eight minutes remaining to block a stooping Robert Lewandowski from meeting a left-wing cross, but the defender’s effort saw the ball go past the goalkeeper and concede a late equalizer.

As a result, Rayo Vallecano is currently up to ninth in the table, while Barcelona is now in third place and faces the possibility of dropping even further behind Real Madrid and Girona at the top.

On Sunday afternoon, Real Madrid goes to Cadiz, and on Monday night, Girona plays Athletic Club.

Gavi, Barca’s rising star midfielder, sustained an ACL injury during Spain’s match against Georgia, which will almost certainly require surgery to repair and keep him out of action for the remainder of the season.
