Barcelona thrashes Atheltic Club in La Liga

Ousmane Dembele, Sergi Roberto, Robert Lewandowski, and Ferran Torres scored Barcelona's goals on Sunday. A 4-2-3-1 formation was implemented by Xavi once more to give Dembele more flexibility to move around, and it was a huge success. In the 12th minute, the Frenchman opened the scoring with a header. In the 18th minute, he made his first assist by throwing Roberto through after some clever buildup play, and the defender's shot, which took a deflection, nestled into the goal.

After the game, a pleased Xavi told Diario AS in an interview: "Very excellent. We believed it to be a rhythmic and intense game. We knew they would put a lot of pressure on us. Today, we attacked from the inside after adding another midfielder. After 11 games, Barcelona is only three points behind Real Madrid with 28 thanks to the victory against Athletic.
