Lewandowski scored as Barcelona thrashed Athletic Bilbao


Barcelona crushed Athletic Bilbao to demolish Athletic Bilbao and maintain a three-point deficit to league-leading Real Madrid. Robert Lewandowski scored his 12th goal in 11 La Liga games.

The Poland striker capitalized on an assist from Ousmane Dembele to score his team’s third goal.

The first goal was assisted by Lewandowski, who lofted the pass for Dembele to score.

In addition to setting up Ferran Torres’ late fourth goal, Dembele assisted Sergi Roberto in making it 2-0.

Barcelona put up a commanding performance, but the victory was somewhat diminished when Roberto was forced to leave with a shoulder injury late in the game.

Barcelona’s second straight victory puts them in reach of Real, who defeated Sevilla on Saturday by 3-1.
