Barcelona entertained Villarreal at the Nou Camp earlier tonight as they looked to bag all three points at home. The Catalans made a slow start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the 41st minute when Alfonso Pedraza scored with a clinical finish. Barca went into the half-time interval 1-0 down on the scoreline.

Moi Gomez doubled his team’s advantage in the 55th minute with a good finish from close range. The Catalan giants failed to come up with a response and crashed to a 2-0 defeat in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Barcelona player performed during the match against Villarreal.

GK: Marc-André ter Stegen – 6/10

The German custodian made one good save in the game but won’t be pleased after failing to keep a clean sheet in both halves.

RB: Dani Alves – 7/10

He got stuck in with some solid tackles and was quite lively in the opponent’s half.

CB: Ronald Araujo – 6.5/10

Araujo did his fair share of defending but failed to stop the opposition from scoring twice during the 90 minutes.

CB: Clement Lenglet – 6/10

The French talent was a strong presence in the air but struggled to give a good account of himself on the defensive end of the pitch.

LB: Jordi Alba – 6/10

The Spaniard made a couple of decent chances in the final third and was far from convincing at the back.

CM: Frenkie de Jong – 6/10

De Jong made two important tackles but failed to influence the game in the Villarreal half.

CM: Sergio Busquets – 6.5/10

He tried his best to protect his backline and engineered two good chances on the attacking end of the field.

CM: Gavi – 5.5/10

Gavi struggled to get into the rhythm of the game and produced a below-average display during his time on the field.

RW: Adama Traore – 5/10

Traore made a mistake in the lead-up to one of Villarreal’s goals. He was quite toothless offensively as well.

ST: Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang – 5.5/10

The ex-Arsenal sensation was mostly quiet in the opponent’s half as he didn’t get too many sniffs at goal.

LW: Ferran Torres – 6.5/10

Torres showed some flashes of what he is capable of but didn’t do enough to register a goal.


RW: Ousmane Dembele – 6/10

Dembele made one good chance in the final third.

LW: Ansu Fati – 6/10

He failed to influence the game after coming off the bench.

CM: Riqui Puig – 6/10

Puig added more energy to Xavi’s midfield.

ST: Memphis Depay – 6/10

The Dutchman never looked like he would score.

CB: Oscar Mingueza – 6/10

He kept things tidy at the back.
