Almost immediately after Luuk de Jong fired Sevilla into the lead, Barcelona bagged an instant equaliser thanks to an opportunity sparked by none other than Lionel Messi.
The all-time great looked for a trademark pass over the top into marauding full-back Jordi Alba, but one of Sevilla’s defenders was actually punished for his attempt at cutting this out.
The ace managed to stop the ball getting through to Alba, but the slight touch that he got on the ball spilled it into Philippe Coutinho’s path.
The attacking midfielder continued his resurgence by tucking the ball into the back of the net with a composed first-time finish, this adds to the two assists that Coutinho has managed this season.
Sevilla take an early lead and then Barca respond immediately! ?
