18-08-2018 - Barcelona 3-0 Deportivo Alaves

64' Lionel Messi 1-0 // 83' Philippe Coutinho 2-0 // 90' Lionel Messi 3-0

Two from Messi and one from Coutinho, each as exquisite as the other, secure Barça opening day victory for a tenth successive season

The first game of FC Barcelona’s Liga title defence was very much a reminder of what a difficult competition this is to win. Ernesto Valverde had warned that the Alavés nut is a tough one to crack, and the Catalans were indeed pushed to the very limit.
A three-goal win against one of the more modest outfits in the division looks comfortable enough on paper. But those goals all came in the last half hour… with the name of a man who needs no introduction whatsoever on everyone’s lips.
