Liga: Thanks to a great Robert Lewandowski, FC Barcelona is moving forward against Villarreal (3-0)

Barça needed it. Net winner of Villarreal (3-0) thanks to a double from Robert Lewandowski (1-0, 31st and 2-0, 35th) and a goal from Ansu Fati (3-0, 38th), the Catalans had made the difference before the break. Too timid, Unai Emery’s team never represented a danger to the Blaugranas’ defense. The latter sign an important victory not to be left behind by Real Madrid when they will play their survival in the Champions League next Wednesday against Bayern Munich.

We have not seen a great Barcelona but the Catalans have provided the essentials and have still not conceded the slightest but at home in La Liga this season. This success, Xavi’s players owe it in large part to Lewandowski, who is still so clinical when it comes to finishing and who now has eleven goals in the league. The Pole has therefore scored 45.8% of Barça’s goals this season on the national stage. While his team had been purring for thirty minutes, he appeared to decant the situation.

Villarreal then Bilbao, a rise in power before Munich?

Ansu Fati had missed the target twice (2nd, 19th), Lewandowski magnified an action initiated by Pedri and relayed by Jordi Alba with a pivot shot following a roulette which put the three defenders in the wind who retract in its perimeter (1-0, 31st). The start of seven minutes of madness for the Catalans. The last two winners of the Kopa Trophy, Pedri and Gavi, found themselves at the start of the action leading to Lewandowski’s curling shot beyond the reach of Geronimo Rulli (2-0, 35th).

The yellow submarine definitely sank on a third but signed Fati who concluded closely following an involuntary one-two with the post (3-0, 38th). The score acquired, Barcelona was content to manage the return from the locker room making this second period dull where the flat left foot off target from Raphinha (79th) was the only clear opportunity for Barcelona. Meanwhile, Xavi was spinning in anticipation of upcoming deadlines. Athletic Bilbao will present themselves at the Camp Nou on Sunday ahead of what is probably the most important game of this start to the season for the Catalans against Bayern next Wednesday.
