La Liga: Messi, Dembele score as Barcelona beat Celta Vigo


Barcelona restored their three-point lead at the top of La Liga with a comfortable home win over Celta Vigo.

Ousmane Dembele opened the scoring on 10 minutes, following up Lionel Messi’s saved shot after the Argentine had initially played a delightful ball through to Jordi Alba.


Messi doubled the lead just before half-time, finishing neatly from the edge of the area as the defence parted.

Atletico Madrid had moved level on points with Barca by beating Espanyol.


Antoine Griezmann’s penalty gave Atletico a 1-0 victory, but the Catalans re-established their advantage with a fourth straight league win without conceding.
