It was a long night for Real Betis, who visited the Camp Nou for gameweek 32 of La Liga. After conceding the first goal from Andreas Christensen in the 14th minute Edgar Gonzalez picked up a red card in the 33rd minute.

Robert Lewandowski doubled the scoreline three minutes later with a composed finish into the bottom left corner. Raphinha joined the names on the scoresheet as well, going around Rui Silva to add the third.

While the second half was much slower from Barcelona, they continued to create chances, and could have had a few more on another day.

Despite that, an impressive 3-0 win meant Barça retained their spot on the top of the table, 11 points clear off of Real Madrid.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen: 7

Only had to make the one save today – an impressive one, no less, 1v1 against Juan Miranda.

Jules Kounde: 8.5

One of Kounde’s best games as a right-back, creating two brilliant chances and also picking up an assist from them. Defended the wing brilliantly as well, intercepting all long balls.

Ronald Araujo: 7.5

Solid game from Araujo, who cleared up pretty much every chance that came Barcelona’s way. Pretty much flawless with his long passing as well, creating several moves for Alejandro Balde.

Andreas Christensen: 8

First goal for Andreas Christensen in Barcelona colours. Opened the scoring, and was superb at the back. Created a chance as well.

Alejandro Balde: 8.5

Exceptional game from Balde tonight, making countless marauding runs on the left-wing. Had Martin Montoya and Guido Rodriguez in stitches.

Pedri: 8.5

A bit dull in the opening minutes, Pedri was unable to make things tick. However, as the game grew on, Pedri was, once again, one of the better players. Created a few lovely chances, and was unlucky to not have an assist.

Sergio Busquets: 8.5

Another brilliant performance from Sergio Busquets tonight, who kept the ball rolling continuously in the middle of the park. Got an assist, too, but could have easily had one or two more.

Frenkie de Jong: 8

Playing as part of the double pivot, de Jong was nimble and excellent with his distribution, as always.

Raphinha: 9

Raphinha continued his brilliant run of form tonight, adding a goal and assist to his tally for the season. Gave Miranda’s nightmare with his combination play and off-the-ball runs.

Robert Lewandowski: 7

Got a much-needed goal, but it was another game where he should have had a hattrick. Missed several chances and looked frustrated when the ball did not magically appear on his feet inside the box.

Gavi: 7

Was far from the spotlight player today, but did well to add control and grit to the midfield.


Ansu Fati: 7

Created the fourth goal through brilliant individual effort.

Marcos Alonso: 6.5

Solid at the back defensively.

Franck Kessie: 6.5

Kept the midfield moving, completed 100% of his passes.

Ousmane Dembele: 5

Understandably selfish after coming on, but should have done better with Yamal’s chipped pass into the box.

Lamine Yamal: 7.5

15-year-old Lamine Yamal first missed a huge chance, and then created one – that was not converted by Dembele. A debut to remember, nonetheless.
