Memphis Depay also known simply as Memphis, is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a forward for La Liga club Barcelona and the Netherlands,

Memphis Depay scored his second goal for Barcelona by defeating Getafe 2-1 on matchday 3 of La Liga. The former Manchester United striker is the player all Barcelona fans have bet on to take the place of Lionel Messi, and so far, he has been trying.

The club has been looking for a perfect replacement for Lionel Messi, it is an almost impossible mission for the club, but little by little they are filling the player’s gap. Sergi Roberto opened the scoring for Barcelona center Jordi Alba at 99 seconds into the game. Sandro tied for Getafe after a double with Carles Alena, both former Barcelona players.

But Memphis Depay showed some good passing ability from Frenkie de Jong before crashing into the bottom corner of the net to give Barça the victory in front of some 26,000 fans.

It was the first La Liga goal scored and assisted by a Dutch player since 2009. Barcelona brought in 17-year-old Gavi to make his second-half debut and remain undefeated with seven points from three games.

However, Getafe has lost all their matches. Barça goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen returned from injury, missing the opening two weeks after knee surgery.
