On Tuesday evening, Balde began Barcelona’s first UEFA Champions League game of the season, contributing to their 5-0 triumph over Belgian champions Royal Antwerp by completing 92% of his passes and winning 100% of his ground duals.
He is anticipated to play a significant role as Barcelona looks to improve on last season’s disastrous European campaign. During the 2022/23 season, despite heavily investing in their squad to sign the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha, the La Liga giants were shockingly knocked out of the Champions League group stages, and were then knocked out of the Europa League at the first time of asking by Manchester United.
