[Goals Highlight] Barcelona 2 – 0 Villarreal
Barcelona went top of La Liga – for two hours at least – with victory over struggling Villarreal.
Gerard Pique headed in Ousmane Dembele’s right-wing cross for the opening goal.
And youngster Carles Alena scored his first La Liga goal when he chipped the ball over Sergio Asenjo from Lionel Messi’s through ball.
Villarreal should have led earlier on, with Gerard Moreno hitting the post after holding off Clement Lenglet.
