A lonely goal by Silva was used by Del Bosque's team to get the 3 points for the Europecup classification of France 2016
Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets were the three Barça players who played the whole 90 minutes against Belarus, match played this Sunday in Borisov, for the classification for Europecup 2016. Pedro Rodriguez, who was starter was replaced at minute 65 for Vitolo. On the other hand Marc Bartra and the first 2015/16 signing by Barça, Aleix Vidal, watched the whole match from the bench.
Match controlled by Spain during the first half, where a goal by Silva was the opener. In the comeback although they had control of most of situations, Vicente del Bosque's men suffered some attacks by the local team that made Casillas intervene. Lack of efficiency of the forward line made the match be open until the final minutes. Despite that, the scoreboard didn't move and the Spanish national team got the 3 points.
Full time: Spain won by the minimum difference away and they are second on group C for the 2016 Europecup classification. The only goal by Silva was enough to get the 3 points in the 6th fixture of the classification stage.
65' - First change by Del Bosque. Pedro Rodríguez went out and the Sevilla player Vitolo went on. Very intense and hard-working the Barça's player.
45' - Goal Silva. After the whole first half of Spanish control but with no results, a move from a free kick scored the opener. Foul on the wing to the second post for Cesc, bad move by the keeper playing for the ball with Ramos, control with the left by Silva and powerful kick with the same foot to rebound on a defense before going in. Del Bosque's men looked for the goal and they found it in one of the last moves of the first half.
