It’s taken Barcelona less than just three minutes to take the lead against Villarreal, the Blaugrana had a brilliant attacking opportunity after Sergi Roberto charged forward after a clever one-two.
Roberto shifted the ball into the path of marauding full-back Jordi Alba and the Spaniard skipped into the box before drilling a low cross into the area.
Antoine Griezmann looked set to hit the back of the net with a tidy back-heel flick attempt, but the ball ended up going through the Frenchman’s legs and into the net after an attempted block by Pau Torres.
Take a look at Barcelona’s early opener below:

Quique Setien will be loving that his side have taken an early lead after some shaky performances coming into tonight’s clash.
