FC Barcelona added three more points in the final official match of 2018 after managing a worked and convincing victory over always tough RC Celta at Camp Nou (2-0).
The 'blues-and-reds' sealed the win in the first half. And as so many times before, thanks to another outstanding performance of Messi. In the 10th minute, Dembele made the opener taking advantage of a rebound, after a good save by Ruben Blanco to a powerful shot from Leo. And the Argentinian star scored the second goal in the last minute of the first half with a clinical shot after receiving a brilliant assist from Jordi Alba.
Celta reacted in the second half, played in a more offensive way, dominated the ball possession and created chances to score the consolation goal but missed them in front of Ter Stegen.
Barça close 2018 in the top of La Liga Santander table with 37 points, three ahead of Atlético.
