Polish striker Lewandowski opened the scoring in the first minute of the game, his first LaLiga goal since moving from Bayern Munich. Alexander Isak equalised five minutes later after latching on to a pass from David Silva.

Barca struggled to break the deadlock until coach Xavi Hernandez sent on Raphinha and Ansu in the 64th minute. Ousmane Dembele scored in the 66th minute with Lewandowski adding his second two minutes later. It was then Ansu’s turn in the 79th minute to nab a goal and close out the game.

Robert Lewandowski, a €45 million summer signing from Bayern Munich, opened the scoring after just 49 seconds, turning home after good work from Pedri and Alejandro Balde to register his first goal for his new club.

Dembele’s goal kicked off a sensational last 25 minutes from Barca, with Lewandowski adding his second minutes later and the Polish striker then produced a brilliantly improvised pass to set up Ansu for the fourth.
