Dani Alves Helps Barcelona To Crush Atletico Madrid

The right-back started the match on a high note as he assisted Jordi Alba in the 10th minute for the equaliser. Barca soon doubled the lead with the help of Gavi who was assisted by new signing Adama Traore.

Defender Ronald Araujo scored the third goal and put the Catalan club on the front foot. The second half started in a similar fashion as Dani Alves scored the fourth goal. It was Alves’ first goal for Barca since returning last year. Last time he scored on 14th September in 2013 against Sevilla.

Alves has now scored 22 goals for Barcelona and has assisted 103 times.

Barcelona Marks Victory Over Atletico De Madrid

Barcelona managed to defeat Atletico De Madrid by 4-2. Furthermore, the team is now in 4th place in the La Liga table and has a 2 point lead over Atletico Madrid who sits 5th.

New signings, Adama Traore and Aubameyang both made their debut.

This was a much-needed win for the Catalan club as they dropped a lot of points previously in the season. Moreover, now they will be facing Espanyol next in the league on 14th February, before going against Napoli in the Europa League.

This can be considered a good start after the signings which the club made recently. Drop your opinions on Barcelona’s and Alves’ performance in the comment section below.
