Barça carved without restraint by the press

Since his first appearance against Celta de Vigo at the start of the month, the midfielder has sublimated Real’s play, which has scored 9 goals and conceded only one in his presence on the pitch. The fairy tale continues for Cama and obviously no one wants it to stop.
