Barcelona were dominant as they defeated Villarreal 3-0 on Thursday night, getting back to winning ways after their Clasico loss at the weekend.
Robert Lewandowski was back among the goals, scoring the first two in the first half before Ansu Fati added another ahead of the break.
Barca coach Xavi said, “We played a great game, it was our turn, we had to react.
“It wasn’t easy because a lot was expected of us after the bad results. There are many expectations this season and we showed our face and showed character. We scored three goals against a team that received the least and there’s good feelings in general.
On Fati, he added: “It must be very important, it depends on your mentality, how you train.
“Another little goal and, in the end, if we are all in solidarity, there is the result.”
