Sevilla 0-2 Barcelona: Lionel Messi Scores as Catalans Edge Past Real Madrid to No 2 Spot
Barcelona beat Sevilla 2-0 on Saturday to edge past Real Madrid in the LaLiga 2020-21 points tally to occupy the No 2 spot. This was also a big win for Barcelona as Sevilla had defeated them a fortnight back in the Copa Del Rey semi-final first-leg match. The two sides will lock horns again in the second leg on Wednesday and with this LaLiga win – they would fancy their chances despite trailing 0-2.
The early minutes of the match were intense. Time and again Messi and Dembele threatened the Sevilla defense. But the break came in form of Ousmane Dembele – who opened the scoring in the 29th-minute of the match.
