Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Highlights: BAR 1-0 CLV, Barcelona RETAKES La Liga Top Spot, Pedri’s SOLITARY goal earns 3 Points for Catalans – Check Highlights

Barça has collected three more points to stay top of the league table, having only conceded one goal in eight matches, thanks to a 1-0 victory over Celta in front of another 80,000+ crowd at the Spotify Camp Nou. But this was very much, as the old cliché goes, a game of two halves. Barça utterly mastered the first half and really should have had more than the single goal they had to show for it.

Yet in a somewhat unexpected turn of affairs, it was Celta that were totally on top when the action resumed after the break, and Barça breathed a huge sigh of relief when the final whistle blew.

Barca took the lead in 17 minutes when neither defender Unai Núñez nor goalkeeper Agustín Marchesín did the best of jobs to deal with Gavi’s well-worked cross, and Pedri was gifted a tap-in.

It had all been about Barça to that point, with Ferran Torres having two of the best chances. Celta put up very little reaction and considering the amount of time the ball spent in and around their area, they could feel very fortunate indeed not to be trailing by more at the break.

Xavi had very honestly spoken before the game about the need to turn possession into shots and real danger, and also over-reliance on Robert Lewandowski for goals can be a major problem.

With a makeshift defence and Ter Stegen needing treatment on his back, the home side were beginning to look worryingly vulnerable against the increasingly more confident-looking Galicians. Celta, it has to be said, were the better side in the second half and had enough chances to not only equalise but even win this game.
