Messi celebrates a goal for Barca.

*Goals: Messi 20′, Griezmann 74′ – Alba (own goal) 49′.

The victory at home at Camp Nou helped Barca reach 40 points after 20 matches like rival Real Madrid, but ranked higher due to the better difference.

Before the match, Messi was the focus – but not because of the first direct red card of his career, also against Bilbao in the Super Cup.

However, Messi quickly reminded fans why Barca accepted to pay such a large amount of money for him.

Before that, Messi had two of Barca’s best opportunities.

In addition to goals and missed opportunities, Messi also sparked other dangerous plays by Barca in the first half.

Messi’s free kick scored.

The first half was almost under Barca’s control.

Barca players then reacted angrily to referee Antonio Lahoz, claiming that De Marcos had pushed behind Alba so the full-back staggered the shot into his own net.

Barca therefore had to start over from the beginning, continuing to push high to find a goal to advance.

Griezmann finished from close range to seal the victory for Barca.

The following minutes saw an open position from both teams.

In the end, Barca won 2-1 on the day they created more dangerous opportunities than Bilbao.
