Barcelona vs Real Valladolid | LaLiga: Lewandowski leads Barcelona’s festival of goals

The Camp Nou crowd are already falling in love with Robert Lewandowski, with the Polish striker scoring two more goals in a 4-0 win over Real Valladolid on Sunday night, after also netting a brace last weekend.

The Polish striker scored the first and third goals of the convincing victory, with Pedri netting the second and Sergi Roberto adding a fourth in stoppage time.

Right from the off, the Catalan side went on the attack, playing with more urgency than they did in their other home game so far, when they were held by Rayo Vallecano.

It took just six minutes for Lewandowski to get involved, striking the post with a header and watching the ball roll along the goal line.

But, in the 24th minute, he had his first official Camp Nou goal, stretching to turn in a brilliant Raphinha cross.

Ousmane Dembele got an assist too, setting up Pedri for a pass into the bottom corner just before the break.

Despite Real Valladolid making half time substitutions, it was still all Barcelona after the pause.

Yet, it took until the 65th minute for the next goal, which Lewandowski scored brilliantly with a backheel that found the back of the net courtesy of a slight deflection.

After Dembele, his replacement Ferran Torres and Frenkie de Jong each had chances for a fourth, it was Sergi Roberto who rounded off the victory in the second minute of stoppage time, firing into an empty net after a Lewandowski strike was tipped onto the crossbar by Jordi Masip.

That could have been the Polish striker’s hat-trick, but his performance was still wonderful enough for the Blaugrana fans to cheer their new idol.

Barcelona now have seven points from their opening three games and will watch on to see what Real Madrid do down the road at Espanyol later this Sunday night.
