Barça relaunches in La Liga against Villarreal

It will not erase the defeat conceded on Sunday in the Clasico against Real Madrid (1-3), but Barça’s victory obtained this Thursday against Villarreal (3-0) at least allows the Catalan club to start again. In an unspectacular, locked-down game for the Blaugrana, it took them just seven minutes to register three goals, all in the first half.

Robert Lewandowski rewarded his Gerd Müller trophy by scoring a lightning double (31st and 35th). Enough to consolidate his place as top scorer in La Liga (11 goals in 10 matches) and come back up to Kylian Mbappé with 27 goals in 2022. No one has done better in the five major European Championships.

Good entry from Dembele

Holder, Ansu Fati also scored, with the help of the post (38th), to offer a much more pleasant second act to Barça. Entering at the end of the match (75th), Ousmane Dembélé did not go far from offering a decisive pass to Raphinha (79th) then to Ferran Torres (85th). With this success, Xavi Hernandez’s players lost three points behind the Madrid leader.
