  • With each passing game Mingueza looks more at home in a Barcelona kit and this was one of his finest performances to date, at both ends of the pitch.

    It was his long ball down the touchline which allowed Antoine Griezmann to run clear on goal and delicately finish, a super assist.

    And in his role as the right centre-back of a three, he was solid defensively too, winning 4/6 duels, both of his two tackles and both of his aerial challenges.

    Alcacer's season has been regularly interrupted by injury and it's been hard for him to find any kind of momentum - reflected in his below-par performance here.

    Alcacer managed just 13 touches of the ball as Barcelona marshalled him easily, and lost possession with five of those, completing just seven passes. He won 1/4 duels, none of his aerial challenges and had no shots at all in the game.

    It just about sums up his season so far.

  • It was a big moment in midweek when Lionel Messi, with the opportunity to score a penalty to complete yet another hat-trick, instead passed the ball to Griezmann to boost the Frenchman's confidence.

    He duly scored, and that positivity took him into today where his deadly double made all the difference. He scored a quite brilliant effort similar to his goal here last season, delicately dinking the ball over the head of Sergio Asenjo from an acute angle.

    And he also took advantage of Juan Foyth's suicidal backpass to intervene and roll neatly into the corner, and give Barcelona the win they needed to keep them in the hunt of Atletico Madrid in the table.
