Villarreal 3-4 Barcelona: Lewandowski shines in seven-goal thriller

Barcelona displayed a determined performance to secure a 4-3 victory against Villarreal at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Goals from Gavi, Frenkie de Jong, Ferran Torres, and Robert Lewandowski marked their hard-fought triumph.

Despite an initial advantage for the hosts, Barcelona quickly gained a 2-0 lead within the opening 15 minutes. Although Alexander Sorloth found the net following a precise pass from Juan Foyth, the goal was disallowed due to an offside position by Etienne Capoue, deemed to be interfering with play. Sorloth continued to challenge Barcelona’s defense with a shot that was impressively saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, while Alex Baena also came close.

Barcelona, however, countered the pressure and managed to score from a corner. Lamine Yamal’s cross found Gavi at the far post, resulting in a headed goal that ignited their comeback. Just three minutes later, a skillful passing sequence culminated in Lewandowski setting up De Jong, who powered a low shot past Filip Jorgensen for Barcelona’s second.

Villarreal initiated a rally, with Foyth heading in a corner and Baena orchestrating a counter-attack that saw Sorloth bundling the ball into the net. The teams went into halftime with a 2-2 scoreline.

Villarreal appeared to complete their comeback as Baena played a pivotal role in a counter-attack, assisting Alfonso Pedraza, who set up Sorloth for a goal. Nevertheless, Barcelona responded with another swift double strike. Substituted-in Ferran Torres skillfully equalized with an improvised finish, followed by Lewandowski capitalizing on a rebound off the post created by Yamal.

The match ultimately concluded in a 4-3 victory for Barcelona, illustrating their resilience and ability to swiftly respond to their opponent’s advancements.
