Barcelona move two points behind Atletico Madrid and above Real Madrid with 2-0 win at Sevilla; Bayern Munich smash Cologne for first league win in three games; Juventus lose ground in Serie A while Kylian Mbappe moves PSG to within point of Ligue 1 summit
Lionel Messi provided a goal and an assist as Barcelona beat Sevilla to move to within two points of the La Liga summit.
Sevilla welcomed Barca having won their last six league outings but never looked like maintaining that run as Ronald Koeman’s side left with a 2-0 win.
Messi teed up Ousmane Dembele for the opener just before the half-hour mark with both sides having goals chalked out for offside
The Barcelona skipper would then wrap up the victory with a scrappy effort five minutes from the end of a fairly routine afternoon’s work.
