Spain: Barcelona’s unbeaten season is still intact after Philipe Countinho, Lionel Messi, Paulinho, and Ousmane Dembele all netted all against VillaReal in A 5-1 win at Camp Nou.
Lionel Messi was on the score sheet and Ousmane Dembele starred with a double as champions Barcelona cruised to a 5-1 win over VillaReal at Camp Nou, moving a step closer to completing a historic unbeaten season in LaLiga.
Philippe Countinho’s third goal in his last four games put Barca ahead and Paulinho soon doubled the hosts’ lead with his ninth league goal of the season, but first since January.
Messi combined to devastating effect with the departing Andreas Iniesta, who received a standing ovation on his penultimate home appearance when he was later replaced.
Barca, whose unbeaten LaLiga season run now is 43 games stretching back to last season, have fixtures against Levante and Real Sociedad to negotiate if they are to archive the feat. While on the other game Real Madrid was beaten by Sevilla 3-2.
