They are now within striking distance of Real Madrid, their bitter rivals who are currently leading the rankings after a perfect start to the season.

 

With 11 victories and five ties from their 16 games away from Camp Nou, Barcelona is still unbeaten on the road in La Liga after their victory at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

With the victory, Barcelona was also able to win three straight games by three goals or more for the first time since 2019. Interestingly, they also defeated a Basque team during that run Eibar rather than Real Sociedad as well as Sevilla and Real Valladolid.

 

Jules Kounde also made his first visit back to Sevilla since leaving the team this past summer for Barcelona on this special occasion. And the Frenchman turned it into a memorable evening.

 

For the first time in his 97 appearances in La Liga, Kounde provided two assists in the same game on Saturday. In the process, he made history by being the first player to ever assist twice in a league away game for Barcelona in the twenty-first century.

Lewandowski, however, continued his impressive start to life in La Liga by scoring again for Barcelona.

 

The Polish captain is now just the third player in the 21st century to have five or more goals in his first four games in the league, behind Radamel Falcao in 2011 and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009, having scored five goals in his first four La Liga 5 games.

 

Gavi had a fantastic game against Sevilla. Since making his debut in the first-team lineup last year, the 18-year-old has only continue to grow stronger to hold his position in the club.

 

Gavi began the match for Barcelona on Sunday, marking his 40th start across all competitions. He achieved that milestone in the club’s history at the age of 18 years, 29 days, making him the first youngest player to do so.
