Barcelona entertained Real Betis at the Nou Camp earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a good result at home in La Liga. The Catalan club made a quick start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 25th minute when Joao Felix found the back of the net. Robert Lewandowski doubled Barca’s advantage just seven minutes later as Xavi’s men went into the half-time break 2-0 up on the scoreline.

Ferran Torres killed the game off in the 62nd minute before Raphinha made it 4-0 to Barcelona just four minutes later. Joao Cancelo put the icing on the cake as he scored as well in the 81st minute. The contest finished with the Catalan giants earning a dominant 5-0 win in front of their home fans.
