Robert Lewandowski also added a layer to the dazzling performance of Barcelona to stay behind Madrid at the La Liga standing. Xavi made another experimentation and tweaking in the starting roster as he opted to have four midfielders and bring back Dembele. The result is pretty astonishing, they scored three goals in the first half, giving no signs of hope or comeback on the sides of Bilbao. Dembele started the thrashing with his goal at the 12th minute, followed by Roberto at 18th, and Lewandowski at 22nd. This is one of the fastest three goals scored by a team in La Liga. A fast-pace approach that Athletic have no chances of keeping up. Follow for the best football prediction site free here!
Dembele’s best performance so far this season.
Camp Nou gave the loudest cheers of the game to Dembele who had an incredible night with opening the scoring and recording fantastic three assists. He was substituted by the teenager Pablo Torre who made his La Liga debut.
Barcelona Boss Xavi Hernandez gives praise towards the excellent performance of Ousmane Dembele and this is what he said: “The confidence today, the intensity, was the key point to win this game because Athletic pressed very well.” Xavi said after the victory. “We understood very well that the superiority was inside today with Pedri coming in.”
“I think it was one of the best games we did here at home. A complete game – I’m very happy. I’m very satisfied.”
Barca was ruthless
Despite Barcelona already securing the three goals of the match only in the first half, it didn’t hinder Barca to continue their demolition of Athletic as Ferran Torres scored a late goal in the second half to put an exclamation of a victory of Barcelona over Athletic Club.
Although Barcelona is ruthless and continues to kill the La Liga table (since their defeat at El Clasico) with the team’s collective and outstanding effort to keep the game on their side domestically, it does not filter the Champions League campaign as Xavi’s squad hopes hang in the balance. They had a draw and a loss to Inter, they also suffered a defeat at the hands of Bayern. Now, Barcelona will once again meet the German champion in Bayern Munich on Wednesday, with the hopes in Champions League hanging in the balance. THis upcoming Champions League match of Barcelona will create an impact and possibly dictates the run of the club throughout this season, across all competitions.
“We have huge potential even when everything is not going well,” Lewandowski said after the victory against Athletic. “We have to think positive, we have to show our fans we can deliver an amazing game with the goals and also our performance and challenge for the game.”
