Key Updates

    A relatively less entertaining second half as no one came close to scoring. First half goals from Lewandowski and Fati was enough to secure a win for Barcelona, who came into the game with a loss against rival Real Madrid. Xavi will be a happy man as his side is back to winning ways but is still three points behind leader Real. Ferran Torres too was brilliant throughout the game but was out of luck as he didn’t score today

  • October 21, 2022 02:21

    Pau Torres gets booked for his rash sliding tackle on Raphinha who was running unmarked in to the Villarreal half

  • October 21, 2022 02:19

    Three added minutes

  • October 21, 2022 02:19

    Barcelona gets a freekick just a couple of yards away from the box as Raphinha is brought down by three converging Villarreal players. The Brazilian himself takes it but it is well wide. It has been that kind of a string of performances from Raphinha. Came in with a lot of hype but is yet to prove himself for the Spanish giant

  • October 21, 2022 02:16

    BLOCKED! Dembele yet again almost provides as Ferran, deep inside the box, shoots but Rulli does well to stop it

  • October 21, 2022 02:09

    CHANCE!! Raphinha misses a sitter. Pedri puts in a long ball to Dembele on the left. The latter then gets a good first touch to find Raphinha but the Brazilian puts it wide. Should’ve been 4-0

  • October 21, 2022 01:56

    Villarreal looking for a breakthrough here but are not really doing anything as their attacks are countered easily. Just as we speak, the Yellows get dispossessed and foul Gavi shortly after, gifting a free kick for Barca

  • October 21, 2022 01:51

    Fati down the middle passes to Alba on the left and he puts in a cross but it is in no man’s land. Roberto finally retrieves it but the Villarreal defense have already converged into him

  • October 21, 2022 01:42

    CLOSE!! Albiol makes a good intervention as Fati comes in running on the left. He attempts a shot but Albiol comes from the back to put the ball away

  • October 21, 2022 01:22
    Lewa sinks the Yellow Submarine
  • October 21, 2022 01:20

    Only one added minute and it gets over quickly. Unai Emery storms off into the dressing room, understandable reaction as his team was absolutely dominated in the second half of the first half. Huge releif for Xavi as Lewandowski is back among the goals an has found his rhythm back. Villarreal has a mountain to climb

  • October 21, 2022 01:15

    Relentless Barcelona is not done yet. Gavi pushes through on the right flank but is brought down by Alex and a freekick is awarded for Barca

  • October 21, 2022 01:10

    THREEE GOALS IN SEVEN MINUTES! ANSU FATI IS THE MAN! Gets his third goal of the season. A stumble from Rulli and Fati is there to tap it in

  • October 21, 2022 01:06

    TWO IN THREE!!! IT IS LEWANDOWSKI AGAIN! WHAT A FINISH. Perfect through ball from Alba, Lewandowski gets there in time, dummies a couple of defenders and fires a screamer from outside the box to the top right corner. Villarreal had conceded only three goals in its last 9 league games but has let Barcelona score twice in three minutes. Speaks volumes about the Barcelona attack

  • October 21, 2022 01:03

    LEWAAA!! Sublime finish from Lewandowski to give Barca the deserved lead. Wonderful through ball from Pedri as Lewandowski receives it in a rather awkward position but he manages well as he turns and puts the ball in the back of the net. This is Lewandowskis first league goal since the game against Mallorca on October 2

  • October 21, 2022 01:02

    Corner for Barca yet again. Alonso takes it but Yeremy kicks it out of danger

  • October 21, 2022 00:59

    Ansu Fati gets a brilliant first touch off a long ball and finds Torres and he passes it to Gavi who is caught offside

  • October 21, 2022 00:57
    24’ Substitution for Villarreal

    Pedraza OUT, Mojica IN

  • October 21, 2022 00:57

    Pedraza is down and it looks like he has a hamstring strain. Medical team arrives and takes him off the pitch and he is replaced by Mojica

  • October 21, 2022 00:55

    CLOSE!!! Yeremy gets a well placed through ball and the play shifts to the right flank. He then passes it to Danjuma who shoots but the ball goes just wide

  • October 21, 2022 00:52

    Kounde plays a brilliant curve cross and a sliding Jordi Alba does well to keep it from going out of bounds on the left. Fati receives and heads it just wide

  • October 21, 2022 00:49

    CHANCE! Yeremy from the left does well to put in a dangerous cross but Jackson could’nt reach it as it is a bit higher than he anticipated

  • October 21, 2022 00:47

    Villarreal stacks the back with six players, making it difficult for the Barcelona attack to breach. Ferran Torres to Gavi and he passes it to Roberto but he fails to get through the defense and passes it to Alba. Attack wears out

  • October 21, 2022 00:43

    A blunder from Pedraza results in Pedri getting the ball in a dangerous position. He sees Gavi free in the penalty box and puts in a pass but Rulli runs in to collect the ball

  • October 21, 2022 00:41

    Freekick for Villarreal as Roberto pulls Pedraza’s shirt to bring him down. But Roberto is let off with a warning. Surprising to say the least. Nothing comes of that freekick

  • October 21, 2022 00:39

    Sloppy defense from Barca as Pedri is yet again intercepted and this time it is deep into their half, but Kounde does well to prevent any advances

  • October 21, 2022 00:37

    Perdi is dispossessed near the half line mark and a quick counter from Villarreal begins. Danjuma dibbles past a couple of defenders but the danger is averted

  • October 21, 2022 00:35

    Immediate pressure from Barca as Ansu Fati puts in a through ball to Gavi but the ball is deflected for a corner. Corner taken quickly but the ball goes wide of any Barca player but eventually finds Gavi. He passes it to Fati who’s outside the box and the latter tries a lower left corner shot but it goes just wide

  • October 21, 2022 00:35

    Gavi starts the proceedings for Barcelona.

  • October 21, 2022 00:32
    A minute’s silence

    A minute of silence observed in the stadium as a respect to Villarreal’s ex-vice president Jose Manuel Llaneza, who passed away earlier today due to Lukemia

  • October 21, 2022 00:26
    Just minutes to go

    We are just within four minutes from the kick-off as the players line up in the tunnel and are all set to take the field. Raul Albiol will captain Villarreal while Sergi Roberto is Barcelona’s skipper

  • October 21, 2022 00:21
    Triple delight for Barcelona

    Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas, Gerd Muller award winner Robert Lewandowski and Kopa trophy winner Gavi are welcomed with a standing ovation from the Camp Nou crowd.

  • October 21, 2022 00:16

    Barcelona tries to rebound from the loss against Real Madrid in the first “clásico” of the season when it hosts Villarreal.

    Xavi Hernández’s team won seven in a row and was unbeaten to start the league until the 3-1 loss at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium on Sunday.

    Villarreal defeated Osasuna in the previous round to end a four-game winless streak in the league. Unai Emery’s team is trying to stay near the European qualification places.

  • October 21, 2022 00:06
    Some good news for Barca fans!

    Jules Kounde was able return to squad - after an injury setback - in El Classico last week, Hector Bellerin was declared fully fit and has made it to the Culers’ squad. But Andreas Chirstensen, Memphis Depay and Ronald Araujo are still unavailable for selection
