Lewandowski scores again as Barcelona thrash Cadiz 0-4

While a medical incident in the crowd caused Saturday’s game to be postponed, Robert Lewandowski continued his stellar start to life in LaLiga and assisted in securing a 4-0 victory for Barcelona over lowly Cadiz.

After Frenkie de Jong’s first goal of the year gave Barcelona the lead in Andalusia, Lewandowski was introduced by Xavi and slid in to seal the victory.

It marked Lewandowski’s sixth LaLiga goal in his fifth appearance in the competition, with no player having managed as many goals in their first five games in Spain’s top flight in the 21st century.

Yet a routine win was soured in the closing stages, with play halted and the players taken off the field following a medical emergency in the stands.

When the match eventually resumed after a 40-minute delay, Lewandowski turned provider for Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele scored as Barca saw out a rout that moves them top of LaLiga with four wins from their five games.

Cadiz relied on the woodwork coming to their rescue in the 10th minute when Raphinha’s low effort hit the right-hand post.

Raphinha blazed over from Barca’s next chance, with Memphis Depay showing a similar lack of composure after connecting with Ronald Araujo’s knockdown.

De Jong tried a cheeky lob early in the second half, but it never came close to testing Jeremias Ledesma. Yet after a warning shot from Fede San Emeterio at the other end, the Barca midfielder was presented with a simple chance.

It was one he took, thumping a first-time finish into a gaping net after Ledesma had parried Gavi’s cutback.

On from the bench, Lewandowski needed just eight minutes to put the game to bed – the 34-year-old’s poacher’s instincts on show as he tucked in a loose ball from a yard out.

The match was already over as a contest, but Barca added two more after the restart, with Lewandowski squaring for Fati to tap in before Dembele’s shot squirmed home.
