Barcelona roll back the years in thrilling win over Atletico Madrid

Barcelona have produced a dominant display as they have upset La Liga defending champions Atletico Madrid 4-2 at Camp Nou.

Yannick Carrasco put Atletico in front with a precise shot just 8 minutes into the match. But, the visitor’s advantage only lasted 2 minutes when Jordi Alba leveled the score with an unstoppable volley. Rising star Gavi netted the ball with a bullet header to give Barcelona a 2-1 lead in the 21st minute. Ronald Araujo scored the 3rd for the Catalan Giants with a powerful shot from a rebound before halftime. The hosts put the icing on the cake just 4 minutes after the restart as Veteran defender Dani Alves scored with a thunderbolt of a shot. Luis Suarez pulled one back before the hour mark, yet to no avail, as Xavi’s team sealed the full points and climbed up to 4th in the standings.
