FC Barcelona 4-0 win over Real Betis was a special one, filled with records and milestones. Here are the four things that happened during the game that will be remembered for a long time.
Lamine Yamal’s debut:
The 15-year-old Lamine Yamal debuted against Real Betis. Becoming the youngest player to appear for Barcelona’s first team. Yamal’s late cameo at Camp Nou created a new chapter in the club’s history. Despite playing for just a few minutes, Yamal managed to impress the coach, Xavi.
“He is special. He could have scored, and made an assist. He is very self-confident, he has shown what he can do. He has no fear and he is very talented,” Xavi said after the game.Xavi Hernandez
Lewandowski ends goal drought:
Robert Lewandowski ended his goal drought with a goal against Real Betis. Lewandowski had gone five games without a goal, a rarity for the Polish striker. Despite ending the drought, his finishing still leaves a lot to be desired. Lewandowski leads the La Liga scoring chart with 19 goals, but Karim Benzema’s hat trick for Real Madrid places him second with 17 strikes.
Ter Stegen breaks Claudio Bravo’s FC Barcelona clean sheet record:
Marc-Andre ter Stegen broke the record for most clean sheets in a La Liga season by a Barcelona goalkeeper after his team’s 4-0 win over Real Betis. The German shot-stopper now has 24 La Liga clean sheets, overtaking Claudio Bravo’s tally of 23 in the 2014-15 season. Ter Stegen has not missed a single minute of league action this season, conceding just 11 times in 32 games. Ter Stegen is now just two clean sheets away from Francisco Liano’s record tally of 26 shutouts for Deportivo La Coruna in the 1993-94 campaign.
FC Barcelona end their 1 goal streak:
Barcelona ended their 4-game 1-goal streak with the 4-0 win over Real Betis. Their last four games had ended either in a 1-0 win, a 1-0 loss, or a 0-0 draw. Barcelona was having a goal drought, but this win could signal a change in fortune. Additionally, with some core players like Frankie de Jong, Pedri, and Dembele back in action, Barcelona will be hoping to score more goals in the coming games.
Overall, Barcelona’s win over Real Betis was a memorable one, with several milestones achieved. It was a positive sign for the team, as they continue their push for the La Liga title.
