Barcelona locked horns with Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium earlier today as they focused on collecting all three points on their travels. Barca made a bright start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 21st minute when Raphinha found the back of the net with his header. Robert Lewandowski doubled his team’s advantage just 15 minutes later with an excellent volley. The Catalan giants went into the half-time break with a healthy two-goal lead.

Eric Garcia made the points secure for Barcelona with an easy finish in the 50th minute. Xavi’s men sat on their lead well and secured a comfortable 3-0 win on the road.
