Barcelona thrash Sevilla to go eight points clear in La Liga



Barcelona put up a fantastic display at the Camp Nou on Sunday to thrash Sevilla 3-0 in a La Liga encounter.

With the win, the Catalonians climbed eight points clear at the top of the table after second-placed Real Madrid were stunned by Mallorca earlier on Sunday.

Jordi Alba opened the scoring in the 58th minute after Barca had endured a frustrating goalless first half.

Gavi then tapped home Raphinha’s cross to double the lead after 71 minutes before the Brazil winger rounded off the scoring by poking in Alba’s cross late on.

Defeat leaves Sevilla 16th, just two points clear of the relegation zone.
