Conceding an early goal, Villarreal also showed the bravery of a strong team.

Falling into a position of being chased like in recent matches, Barca began to rearrange their squad.

The Barca captain started to shine when he made a solo assist from the middle of the field in the 20th minute. After dribbling past three players and a quick pass from Messi, Suarez beautifully curled the ball to increase the score to 2-1.

Barca ended the match right from the first half.

Barca missed many opportunities in the second half.

In the 69th minute, the referee even caused controversy when he did not recognize Messi’s goal.

The remaining goal of the match belonged to Ansu Fati, a 17-year-old striker who replaced Griezmann from the 72nd minute. After accelerating the ball from the left wing, Fati mischievously shot into the near corner, causing Asenjo to stand still and concede the goal.
