1 minute, 32 seconds Read

Barcelona’s 90 minutes of football against Real Betis was perhaps the most enjoyable 90 minutes of action presented by the Blaugranas in recent times.

It was a fairytale night for Xavi men, as Joao Felix, Robert Lewandowski, Ferran Torres, Raphinha, and Joao Cancelo all got on the scoresheet on the night in a wonder show.

Joao Felix vs Betis

Joao Felix scored one, proved instrumental in another, and dictated play for most of his 64 minutes on the pitch. The Portugal international, making his full debut, quelled any fears about his fit in this Barca side, providing the cutting edge his team needed in a 5 star victory.

Felix opened the scoring in fine fashion, latching onto Oriol Romeu’s diagonal ball before evading the goalkeeper and finishing from a tight angle.

Barcelona fans across the web were delighted with Joao Felix’s ‘scanning’ & movement in the build up for Lewandowski’s goal.

Joao Cancelo vs Betis

Joao Cancelo made his first start of the season for Barcelona, and boy did he have an impact.

The right-back struck up a wonderful combination with Ferran Torres down the right with both players alternating in central and peripheral roles. As an inverting full-back, Cancelo often made runs in between the defenders to release Torres into space on the flank.

Moreover, the Portuguese full-back scored a sensational goal in the second half to make it 5-0 to the Catalans.
