Barcelona successfully maintained the momentum from the midweek win over Villarreal thanks to a dominant 4-0 triumph against Athletic Bilbao at the Spotify Camp Nou on Sunday night. Barça was entirely in control from start to finish, scored four excellent goals behind a masterful performance by Ousmane Dembélé and thoroughly dominated a good Bilbao side to win their second in a row in the league.
Ousmane Dembele scored one and provided three assists for Sergi Roberto, Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres as Barcelona cruised past Athletic Bilbao 4-0.
The French forward then put Roberto through with some brilliant one-touch build-up play in the 18th minute, with the Spain full-back’s strike bouncing in off a defender past a helpless Unai Simon.
Four minutes later, Dembele ran down the right channel before crossing to Lewandowski, who swivelled and finished with a powerful shot.
Barca took their foot off the gas after the break, but there was still time for Dembele to deliver another assist less than 20 minutes before the end, playing the ball in from the left touchline for Torres to score from close range.
Barcelona remains second in the standings on 28 points, three behind leaders Real Madrid and five clear of third-placed Atletico Madrid.
