Barcelona started the new season in La Liga with a goalless draw with Viecano. But with each passing day, Javi Hernandez’s team is getting more and more rhythmic. Barcelona won the next two matches against Sociedad and Valladolid, with big margins (4-1 and 4-0). That continuity continued today at the Ramon Sanchez-Pihuan Stadium in Xavier. This time the margin of victory is 3-0.
Robert Lewandowski’s goals have meant Barcelona wins lately. This match is no exception. Rafinha got the first goal in the jersey of Barcelona along with Leva, the other goal was Eric García.
In fact, in the first 20 minutes of the match, Sevilla fought almost evenly. They were not found after that. But the hosts could have gone ahead at that time. Erik Lamela also sent the ball into Barca’s net in the 12th minute. But that goal was canceled due to offside.
Barcelona took the lead on 21 minutes. Ousmane Dembele made a great pass to Lewandowski. Levy could get the goal. However, after his shot was brought back from the goal line by Javier Fernando, Rafinha headed the ball into the net. It was the Brazilian winger’s first goal since joining Barcelona from Leeds.
Leva, however, did not have to wait long. The Polish striker scored 2-0 from Jul Kunder’s cross in the 36th minute. Laver scored 5 goals in 4 matches in the Barça jersey. Lewa is the third player to score 5 goals in his first 4 La Liga games this century after Cristiano Ronaldo and Radamel Falcao.
Barcelona scored the third goal of the match within five minutes after the break. This time Jul Kunder’s pass, Barca defender Eric Garcia scored the goal.
After that, Barca didn’t score any more goals, but if they were lucky, they could have scored three more. If the win is Barca’s motivation ahead of the start of the new Champions League season against Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday, the wasted goal chances will also serve as a warning.
Currently, Barcelona is in second place in La Liga with 3 wins in 4 matches and 10 points in one draw. Real Madrid is at the top with 12 points after winning all the equal matches.
