Barcelona 2-1 Alaves Highlights

Barcelona’s performance has been abysmal lately, but somehow, they got what they wanted: three points.

At their temporary home, Xavi’s side, which struggled with the absences of many key players, came from behind to beat out-of-top-ten Alaves, thanks to a brace by Lewandowski.

The home victory moved Barcelona back within two points of second-place Real Madrid, who ran riot at Valencia 5-1 on Saturday. The surprise leader, Girona, also came from behind to win 2-1 at Rayo Vallecano.

The visitors took the lead in a breakaway one minute into the match as the Montjuic crowds stunned.

Polish talisman Lewandowski helped the hosts rally with a header in the 53th and a penalty kick in the 78th.

The former Bayern Munich star was recently sidelined with an injury and went under a goal drought, having already reached four games.

But against Alaves, while he had wasted precious chances, he still delivered with a superb header and a fantastic penalty to clinch the crucial win.

Barcelona extended its unbeaten run against Alaves to 12 league games, with 10 wins and two draws.

The Catalans suffered defeats in all competitions and needed a stoppage-time goal to win at Real Sociedad last weekend. Xavi must improve the situation before it gets worse.

Real Madrid 5-1 Valencia: Vini and Camavinga danced for a goal-fest at home

No Jude Bellingham, still party, and it was wild at the Bernabeu!

The host outclassed Valencia with doubles from Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, while Dani Carvajal was also on target, and the only consolation for the visitors was Hugo Duro’s late goal.

Real took the lead after three minutes when Toni Kroos’ 50-yard diagonal ball found Dani Carvajal, who turned inside his man and slammed a half-volley home from outside the area.

Vinicius added a second three minutes before the break when he met Rodrygo’s awkwardly bouncing low cross with his chest to divert home.

The Real winger got a fabulous third just after half-time, cutting in before curling a low effort inside the near post.

A minute later, Che goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvii gave the ball straight to Rodrygo, who gleefully shot home.

Rodrygo netted his second, turning a defender inside and out before hitting home with his left, and Real’s fifth on 84 minutes before Valencia’s Hugo Duro scored an 88th-minute consolation.

The win brings Real within two points of La Liga leaders Girona. Valencia dropped to ninth spot.

At 23, Vini has achieved so much, and on the back of two 20-goal seasons, he could be about to take his game to a higher plane.
