As a result of their victory over Villarreal today, Barcelona has increased their lead in the La Liga table to 23 points. Xavi has won his first two games in the Spanish Laliga since his arrival, a winning streak of two games. De Jong, Coutinho, and Depay scored the three goals for Barcelona in the first half of the game.
Despite the fact that Barcelona won tonight's match, Nigerian star player Samuel Chukwueze performed outstanding for Villarreal once again. Since joining Villarreal, the 22-year-old winger has established himself as a valuable member of the team. Injuries, on the other hand, have hampered him on the majority of occasions.
After coming off the bench to score the lone goal for Villarreal, the Super Eagles player scored the game's only goal. Chukwueze, who had only recently returned from injury, started the game on the bench and entered the game in the 65th minute. He scored the equalizer for Villarreal ten minutes later. It was a shame his squad was unable to cling on until the very finish.
Chukwueze has established a new world record. He has now scored the most goals against Barcelona in the Villarreal stadium, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo. In four games versus Barcelona at La Ceramica, he has scored three goals in total.
