2 min read
Barcelona, led by Lewandowski, staged a comeback to beat Alaves 2-1. Lewandowski's second-half brace secured a crucial victory, ending a goal drought.

In a stunning turnaround, FC Barcelona overcame an early setback to clinch a 2-1 victory against Deportivo Alaves at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys.

Despite falling behind within 20 seconds, the Blaugrana showcased resilience, with Robert Lewandowski’s second-half brace securing a crucial win heading into the international break.

The sluggish form that plagued Barcelona in recent matches persisted, particularly evident in the first half when Alaves tested them defensively. The opening goal by Samu Omorodion marked Barcelona conceding the two fastest goals in La Liga this season, underscoring defensive vulnerabilities.

During the initial 45 minutes, Barcelona struggled to pose an attacking threat, managing just four shots—their lowest tally at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys this season. The performance raised concerns about their ability to dominate games, despite their storied reputation.

Lewandowski emerged as the hero for Barcelona in the second half, ending a goal drought with an equalizer in the 53rd minute. His brace, which included a flawless penalty kick, highlighted his impact on the team.

Notably, Lewandowski’s contributions have earned Barcelona the most points (10 points, 7 goals) in La Liga this season, surpassing competitors like Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham.

The penalty kick that sealed the victory also marked a milestone, being the 200th goal scored under the management of Xavi in 107 games. Lewandowski has been the standout performer during this period, notching up 41 goals, followed by Ferran Torres (19) and Pedri (14).

While the victory may have been unconvincing, Barcelona’s ability to overcome adversity and Lewandowski’s pivotal role showcase the team’s resilience and determination as they navigate the challenges of the La Liga season under Xavi’s guidance.
