Radamel Falcao, Colombian forward for Rayo Vallecano and author of the only goal of the match, declared that the victory against Barcelona means “a lot” and assured that before playing they wanted the fans to “see what some had never seen”, which was to win to the Barcelona team, something that had not happened since 2002.
Rayo beat Barcelona with a solitary goal from Falcao in the 29th minute and with the leading role of goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski, who saved the Dutchman Memphis Depay from a penalty in the second half.
“We wanted the fans to see what some had never seen, which was to win against Barça. With work everything is possible. This victory meant a lot and now we will tell something that Rayo had not done for a long time, “said Falcao, speaking to Movistar Plus.
After falling in Vallecas, Rayo had two consecutive defeats and was left out of the European positions.
“Barcelona has good players and I’m sure they will get up despite the bad streak they have been through,” he concluded. EFE (HN)
