The Catalans came back from behind with three goals after the 80-minute mark.

Barcelona defeated Celta Vigo 3-2 in their La Liga game on Saturday. Robert Lewandowski’s brace inspired Barca to complete a late comeback.

What happened?

Barcelona’s poor start to the game saw Celta Vigo use the opportunity to get ahead through Jorgen Strand Larsen’s goal in the 19th minute.

The Catalans soon established their dominance over the possession but had no luck in creating serious chances. The same trend continued throughout the second half, but this time Barca managed to increase the pressure as the game went on.

It seemed as if the hosts were on the verge of scoring the equalizer when Celta doubled their lead with a goal from Anastasios Douvikas.

But that wasn’t the end of the story for Barcelona. In the 81st minute, Robert Lewandowski converted a fantastic through ball from Joao Felix to bring Barca back into the game.

Only four minutes later, the Polish striker scored the equalizer for the Catalans, this time after a precise cutback from Joao Cancelo.

The former Manchester City star then completed his fantastic performance by snatching the match-winner for the Catalans in the 89th minute. The goal completed Barca’s eight-minute comeback as they continued their six-game winning streak in La Liga.
