The guy: Maximian
The goalkeeper of Granada even caught the signal to WiFi at Camp Nou this Monday.

Maximiamo still stood out for another factor: he was the champion of the “wax” on the field, gaining precious minutes with his tricks.
It was bad: Dest
The right-back continues without justifying the investment made by Barcelona in his football.
In Granada’s goal, the winger took a shameful ball from Escudero, who crossed for Domingos Duarte to head in.
Then he made childish and melancholy mistakes, as in the move where he fell alone and even made his opponents laugh.
After Baldé’s departure, Dest was improvised on the left-back, but kept his performance lousy.
