Barcelona’s First Win After Lockdown

Mallorca v Barcelona ended in a convincing 4 nil win for the Catalan club

FC Barcelona won convincingly at Mallorca yesterday with a 4 nil win after being off for the best part of 3 months. Goals came from from Vidal, Braithwaite, Alba and Messi

Quique Setien‘s Barça got off to a flying start, before having a difficult spell in the game but finally showed their quality in the second half to cement the win.

There was both good and bad news for the league leaders, who moved one step closer to beating Real Madrid to the title. Martin Braithwaite scored his first goal since joining the club and is quickly proving himself to be a valuable addition to the Catalan club. Ronald Araujo, the club’s other new comer had a reasonable game but wasn’t really tested by Mallorca’s front men.

Griezmann still not fitting in

There weren’t many negatives to take from yesterday’s match, but the lack of contribution from French star Antoine Griezmann is starting to become a regular occurrence and is a worry for a player of his calibre.

This was another match in which the Frenchman failed to turn up, with neither goals or in terms of his general play, and another fixture where he was one of the first to be substituted.

This Barcelona team has not been the team everyone has hoped for of late, but are still firm favourites to lift the title at the end of the season.
