Welcoming Real Betis, despite having home field advantage, it is obvious that Barcelona is still expected to experience a difficult 90 minutes. Because in recent years, Betis has always been a tough opponent, and they have only lost one match in La Liga this season.
However, coach Xavi Hernandez and his team surprised everyone when they easily destroyed the Sevilla team. In the 25th minute, Joao Felix scored his first goal under a Barca shirt and helped the home team take the lead. 7 minutes later, it was Robert Lewandowski’s turn to put his name on the scoreboard with a classy run and finish.
Entering the second half, the score soon increased to 3-0 for Barcelona in the 62nd minute, after Ferran Torres’ smart finish on the direct free kick. In the 66th minute, Raphinha scored after only 2 minutes on the field and brought home the fourth goal for the Camp Nou team. The final score was determined in the 81st minute of the match, when rookie Joao Cancelo “opened his account” at the new club with a spectacular masterpiece.
With a 5-star victory, Barca is temporarily surpassing Real Madrid to lead the La Liga rankings with 13 points after 5 rounds.
