Spanish champions Barcelona bounce back from last weekend’s surprise defeat to Athletic Bilbao with a 5-2 win over Real Betis at Camp Nou, thanks to a brace from new signing Griezmann and others.
Fekir put the visitors in front with a well-taken finish 15 minutes in, but Barca grew into the match and were level at half-time thanks to Griezmann’s first goal for the club – an impressive volley after being picked out by Roberto.
Griezmann added a second five minutes into the second half with an even better goal, paving the way for a flurry of strikes as Perez, Alba and substitute Vidal also registered in a lively second half. Loren pulled one back 11 minutes from time, but Valverde’s men were comfortable winners in the end.
Barcelona, three points adrift of early LaLiga pacesetters Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, return to action next Saturday with a trip to Osasuna. As for Betis, they will go in search of their first points of the campaign against Leganes in six days’ time.
