Netherlands striker Memphis Depay scored the first goal for Barcelona, ​​meeting coach Ronald Koeman’s expectations, avoiding his team’s first defeat in the Spanish Football League La Liga since the departure of superstar Lionel Messi. Barcelona played a poor game but Depay’s goal helped restrict Athletic Bilbao to a 1–1 draw in football news

For the first time since the Coronavirus epidemic, some spectators also arrived at the San Mames Stadium, who took some relief from Depay’s goal in the 75th minute. Inigo Martinez gave Bilbao the lead in the 50th minute. As soon as Depay scored the goal, not only the fellow players, the spectators were also stunned.

Athletic Bilbao appeared to be on course for a deserved victory after Inigo Martinez put them ahead against Barcelona, but Memphis Depay had other plans. In a lively first half, the hosts had seven shots to Barca’s three, and they deservedly went ahead five minutes after the restart when Inigo Martinez steered a header past Neto.

Depay, a former Lyon forward, ensured a share of the spoils 15 minutes from time, lashing home from an acute angle after Frenkie de Jong had hit the crossbar. Eric Garcia was then sent off in the dying minutes of the game, as Barcelona dropped their first points of the season.

Barcelona defeated Real Sociedad 4-2 in their first football match after the legendary footballer Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), but missed the Argentine superstar in the second match. In other La Liga matches, Valencia held Granada to a 1–1 draw with a penalty goal from Carlos Soler in the 88th minute, while Majorca beat Alavés 1–0 with a Fur Nino goal.
