Barça opens league campaign with big win against Betis

August 22, 2016

Barcelona’s opening match in their 2016/17 Spanish League campaign ended with a spectacular 6-2 win against Betis on Saturday in front of a crowd of nearly 66 thousand.

Arda Turan continued his good form with a goal in the sixth minute, although quarter of an hour later Ruben Castro equalised. However one each from Messi and Luis Suarez saw the Catalans leading Betis 3-1 going into the break.

Eleven minutes into the second half Suarez scored his second of the night, immediately followed by Messi. Suarez made it a hat-trick with eight minutes on the clock, with Castro clawing back a second goal for Betis two minutes later.

All in all a great start to the new season.
