Barcelona had to fight hard to get a gritty 2-0 win over Osasuna to move into the final of the Spanish Supercopa.
They needed second-half goals from Robert Lewandowski and super-sub Lamine Yamal to get them over the line to book a clash against Real Madrid in the final.
Even though he didn’t score, Ilkay Gundogan was one player who impressed a lot of fans with his display. He not only assisted Robert Lewandowski’s goal, but also controlled the game for his side. Here are his stats from the game
6 key passes
5/6 accurate long balls
82/85 accurate passes
2/2 successful dribbles
7/9 ground duels won
A lot of fans have heaped praise on Gundogan for his performance and believe he was the best player for Barca, as they reacted on Twitter.
Neal Gardner: “Frenkie de Jong was very good (as per), but Ilkay Gundogan was comfortably our best player. 82/85 successful passes, 6 chances created, 2/2 successful dribbles, one magnificent assist, and he was our deepest midfielder back. Bonkers good.”
DesmundOris: “Are we all just going to pretend like this is normal from ilkay Gundogan? Man has been our best signing this season.”
