Strong Villarreal tried to stop Barcelona, which shows quite good results in the Spanish La Liga. The team from Valencia could not cope with their task, the team conceded 3 goals in a very short period of the game.
In the first half the Catalan team immediately began to put pressure on the opponent. The first moment happened at the beginning of the match. Ansu Fati, a young talent, managed to create a great goal-scoring opportunity, but after the player hit the ball flew past the bar. After that, the player continued to aggravate the situation at the opponent’s goal, the next shot of the player also failed. The ball did not even hit the gate.
Barcelona started the defeat in the middle of the first half, 31 minutes. The goal was scored by the team’s top scorer – Robert Lewandowski. The Pole in his trademark style handled the situation and shot past the defense and the goalkeeper.
Villarreal played very slowly after the ball and immediately lost the ball in the middle of the field. Lewandowski received the ball outside the penalty area, analyzed the situations and sent the ball into the net with a beautiful strike, thus making the score in the meeting 2-0. In the current season, the striker is showing very good results. The fans of the Catalan team have not seen anything like this since the departure of Luis Suarez, the former center forward of the team.
After only 3 minutes, Ansu Fati almost killed the intrigue in this match. The player sent the ball into the opponent’s goal from the bar, which he himself hit. However, in this moment we should highlight Ferran Torres, who created the moment, beating several opponents.
The team had just 7 minutes to guarantee victory in the match.
