Barcelona beats 10 man Villarreal

December 11, 2017

Despite high possession throughout the match Barcelona seemed unable to finish when they faced Villarreal on Sunday night. The turning point of the match though was when Raba was given his marching orders after going in hard on Busquets. The ref immediately showed him the red card.

However with the home side a man down Barça soon made their mark when Luis Suarez scored the opener with less than 20 minutes remaining. Eleven minutes later Messi made it two and securing another three points for the Catalans.

0-1 Suárez (min 72)
0-2 Messi (min 83)

The result leaves Barcelona five points clear of Valencia and eight ahead of arch-rival Real Madrid, currently in fourth place.
