In the second half, Jules Kounde made an error by mistiming his header. This led to a one VS one situation. On the other hand, Barcelona's defender Ronald Araujo, who was out of position, had to foul Valencia's Duro. Even though Ronald Araujo was sent off and could potentially miss crucial games, he took one for the whole team. Assuming Ronald Araujo didn't make that timely foul, Duro would have been free to score Ter Stegen. Hence, Ronald Araujo should be applauded for sacrificing himself for the team as Barcelona was able to keep the 1-0 lead with 10 men.
