La Liga: Lewandowski, Raphinha Score As Barca Breeze Past Sevilla

La Liga: Lewandowski, Raphinha Score As Barca Breeze Past Se

Robert Lewandowski scored his fifth goal in four LaLiga games for Barcelona while Raphinha got his first as they breezed past Sevilla with a 3-0 win on Saturday at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.

The win lifts Barcelona to second place in the table on 10 points, two behind leaders Real Madrid.

For Julen Lopetegui's team, however, it was their third defeat in four games, leaving them with only one point in 17th place.

Raphinha opened the scoring when he headed in a rebound from a Lewandowski chipped shot that a defender cleared off the line in the 21st minute.

Fifteen minutes later, Jules Kounde, playing for the first time against Sevilla after leaving to sign with Barcelona this summer, sent a perfect cross into the box that Lewandowski caught on his chest before striking his volley into the bottom left corner.

Ten minutes into the second half, Kounde provided another assist, heading a corner at the right post onto Garcia, who thumped home from close range to wrap up the three points.

Barca now turn attention to European action against Viktoria Plzen while Sevilla face Manchester City during mid-week Champions League matches.
