Arda and Piqué score in the second half to beat Celtic
It was never easy to play in Germany. Scpecially at Borussia Park, where Schubert's team had one the 11 previous matches. Borussia Mönchengladbach were hard to beat and offered a great performance in the first half. Luis Enrique's team was not producing their best build up, but they never surrended and fought until the end to earn a precious victory (1-2) to lead the group.
It's really important to have a deep squad to play in Europe. Barcelona used two subs, Arda and Rafinha, to give fresh air to the team in the second half and score the goals. The Turkish with the equalizer and Gerard Piqué with the winning one.
Alcacer fought with the Germans but wasn't lucky. Neymar tried to play Messi's role, but it's not easy to replace the magician '10'. The Brazilian wasn't at his best in dribbling. Alcacer, lost, is still learning how to play in this system and was replaced after not impressing once again.
When Arda entered the game, it changed. With more passion than order, Barcelona put Borussia in their own half. Busquets recovered a ball near Sommer's area and gave it to Neymar, who found the goalscorer Arda. Piqué, after a set-piece scored the winning goal.
Finally, Borussia's record at their home is history. Now Barcelona wants to write their own one.
