Eintracht, after the advantage, fell back a bit but the counterattacks were still dangerous. In minute 62 Xavi Hernández moved the bench. Gavi, who was having problems with intensity on divided balls, gave way to Frenkie de Jong and Adama to Ousmane Dembelé.

Dembelé started the tie play. He put the ball in the area for Ferran who scored behind a wall with De Jong.
The two new ones responded immediately. In addition to the tie, the game seemed to have a twist. Barcelona began to gain in security and Eintracht began to show physical wear.

In many divided balls, Barcelona began to be the team that arrived a moment earlier and Eintracht closed the spaces less.
