Last season’s Barca forward Ousmane Dembele scored the equalizer in the 40th minute of the match. Catalan fans stormed the field with posters of the French star’s mutilated face to make life miserable. From the beginning, they floated Dembele in two tones. But it was Dembele who calmed down Barca.

In the second half, Vitinia also shook Barca’s net. And Mbappe wrote the rest of the story. He left the field after securing the team’s victory by scoring a pair of goals. Coach Luis Enrique seems to have forgotten about Mbappe leaving PSG in this victory. The Frenchman hugged this superstar and jumped on the ground of Barca.
