Philippe Coutinho

Watch as Philippe Coutinho makes Barcelona’s first appearance against Espanyol in Spanish Cup!

Philippe Coutinho has finally made his first appearance, as Barca won.

The match ended 2-0 for Barca, who completely dominated the match against Espanyol. This was the second leg of Spanish Cup, after Barca shockingly lost the first leg 1-0.

As usually, Messi and Suarez made the difference, as Espanyol simply couldn’t get a decent chance against Barca.

Obviously, these two goals proved to be enough for Barca to win this match and get to the next round (somewhere Real couldn’t get).

The most interesting thing in this match was the fact that Philippe Coutinho made the first official appearance in Barcelona’s shirt.

The €120 million man was a second half substitute, after Iniesta got substituted. Coutinho did made some solid runs and one great pass, but didn’t have enough time to make a really lasting impression.

Still, it was exciting to see Barcelona’s most expensive signing in action. Something we will see a lot more in the future.
