Barcelona beat Celta Vigo 2-0 at Camp Nou on Saturday evening, with first-half goals from Ousmane Dembélé and Lionel Messi ensuring the reigning Spanish champions will finish 2018 top of La Liga.
Celta started on the front foot, recording the game’s first shot while keeping a compact defence line. However, their resistance crumbled after just nine minutes when Ousmane Dembélé opened the scoring.
Lionel Messi started the attack, exchanging passes with Jordi Alba before seeing his following shot saved by Rubén Blanco. The Célticos goalkeeper couldn’t maintain hold of the ball, though, and Dembélé was on hand to capitalise.
