Lewandowski puts Barca back on the road to success

World footballer Robert Lewandowski has put FC Barcelona back on the road to success after the defeat in the Clasico. The Pole scored the first two goals in the 3-0 (3-0) win in La Liga against Villarreal on Thursday after two outstanding individual actions. After ten games, Barca are second on 25 points, three points behind arch-rivals Real Madrid.

After Lewandowski (31st/35th), who was awarded the Gerd Müller Trophy for the best attacker of the past season on Monday, young star Ansu Fati (38th) made an early preliminary decision in front of 73,261 spectators at the Camp Nou. On Sunday, the 26-time champion lost the 185th Clasico against Real 3-1 and had to give up the lead in the table to the royal team.

“We played a great game. We had to react. It wasn’t easy after the Madrid defeat. Expectations were high and a lot was expected of us. The team showed character, intensity, effectiveness in front of goal and a very good defence .We scored three goals against the team that scored the fewest goals in LaLiga,” coach Xavi analyzed the match.

Somewhat surprisingly, the Barca coach offered Chelsea newcomer Marcos Alonso in central defense, and Frenkie de Jong was also allowed to play again from the start. Veteran Sergio Busquets only sat on the bench. “We had to make changes because we are tired and needed to recover well after the defeat. There will be changes again on Sunday. The team has to be on the ball no matter who is playing,” said Xavi.

Lewandowski took the lead when, after a sharp cross, he let two defenders slide into space with a back heel trick and easily pushed in.

Just four minutes later, the former Bayern star moved in from the left and curled the ball from 18 meters into the right corner, it was his 16th goal of the season in all competitions and the eleventh in the league.

Left-back Jordi Alba and youngster Ansu Fati spoke of an important victory after a “tough week. We knew that we had to give everything at home and get the three points. We did that,” said Fati.
