In new Lewandowski gala performance, Barcelona beats Villarreal

Highlighting Lewandowski once again, Barcelona did their homework and beat Villarreal to recover from defeat in the derby

O barcelona won the villarreal this Thursday, 20th, in a game valid for the 10th round of the Spanish Championship. As a result, the team led by Xavi kept on the rival’s tail Real Madrid and bounced back after defeat in the weekend classic. The 3-0 result was all built in the first half and featured two beautiful goals from Lewandowski and one of Ansu Fati.

In almost all of Barcelona’s matches, the start is the same, with the Catalans dominating possession and trying to find space in the opponent’s closed defense. Defensively set up and ready to counterattack, Villarreal expected just one ball to open the scoring and head towards victory at Camp Nou, but that didn’t happen.

After 30 minutes, spaces appeared and Lewandowski took advantage. In just one touch, the Pole dribbled two defenders and the goalkeeper after receiving in the area and opened the scoring. Five minutes later, he received the ball on the left and increased with a shot placed at the edge of the area, which meant that Fati still had time to take advantage of Ferran’s play and his own rebound to score the third in the 38th minute of the first half.

In the second half, the visiting coach, Unai Emery, made changes trying to change the course of the game, but with Barça following well posted, he managed to do little offensively. Otherwise, Lewandowski continued to take danger when he was given freedom, but that ended up becoming increasingly rare as the confrontation went on.

From then on, little happened. Xavi started to fiddle with the pieces and put dembele and little raphinha, who even gave more gas and created dangerous chances, but were unable to be effective in increasing the score. From the middle to the end of the second half, Villarreal also lost any reaction force and the final result was 3-0.
