Barca's Dembele, Messi Put Sevilla To The Sword

Barca's Dembele, Messi Put Sevilla To The Sword

Barcelona forwards, Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi fired the Catalans to a comfortable 2-0 win at in-form Sevilla on Saturday to keep the pressure on LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid.

Dembele latched on to a through ball from Messi and knocked it through the legs of Sevilla keeper Bono to give Barca a deserved lead in the 29th minute after dominating the first half and barely giving their hosts a hint of a chance.

Sevilla improved after the break but Barca continued to have the edge and found a second goal when Messi played a one-two with teenage midfielder Ilaix Moriba and netted.

It was a solo effort from the Argentine as he dribbles through Sevilla's defence, nutmegged Bono and scored.

The result ended a six-game winning streak in the league for Sevilla, who remained fourth in the standings on 48 points, while Barca climbed to second with 53 points, two behind front-runners Atletico but having played two more games.
