Raphinha, Alba, Gavi Send Barca 8-Point Clear With 3-0 Win O


Barcelona put in a commanding performance on Sunday night, as they defeated Sevilla 3-0 in a thrilling encounter at the top of the La Liga standings.

Jordi Alba, Gavi and Raphinha were the goal-scorers on the night, putting Barcelona eight points clear at the top of the table.

The game started with a blistering pace, as both teams went all out from the get-go. But it was Jordi Alba who would open the scoring in the 58th minute. Franck Kessie, who had come on as a substitute for Sergio Busquets, made the assist as he rounded off Yassine Bono in style with a well-placed pass.

Raphinha, who had been a regular starter in the absence of Ousmane Dembele due to injury, put in a solid performance despite not being at his best.

The Brazilian would go on to provide the assist for the second goal of the night. A lofty pass from Jules Kounde, who was syncing into his new role as a right-back, found Raphinha who cut back with a pass that beat everyone, including the goalkeeper. But Gavi was there to tap it in and secure the lead.

The night belonged to Raphinha, who finally got his goal with a brilliant cut-in by Alba. The Brazilian was quick to react, and he jerked the ball into the net with precision, leaving the Sevilla defence in his wake.

The goal was a testament to the attacking prowess of the Barcelona team, and the win put them in pole position to win the La Liga title for the first time since the 2018-19 season.

Xavi Hernandez, who is a Barcelona legend, would have been proud to see his team show such solid defence. Andres Christensen, Ronald Araujo, and Jules Kounde formed a wall in front of Marc Andre Ter Stegen, and their performance was crucial in securing the three points.

In conclusion, it was a night to remember for Barcelona fans, as their team put in a commanding performance to move eight points clear at the top of the La Liga standings.
