Barcelona are running riot at Mestalla, and “Xavi ball” is in full effect.
The coach made several changes to his lineup, and it’s worked nicely against a poor Valencia team. Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang has just added his second goal of the game (and his second in Barca colours) with a simple tap in after his teammates.
This was the most tiki taka goal yet, with the away team pulling Valencia apart with clever runs all over before Gavi had the space to play the ball back to his teammate for an easy finish.
