Frenkie de Jong’s late winner against Deportivo Alaves gives Barcelona a much-needed win.

This was an incredibly difficult game for the visitors despite Alaves entering this one in the relegation zone.

And the second half followed a similar pattern: Barcelona dominated possession.

But struggled to create as the hosts grew into the game.

Alaves could have taken the lead through Joselu when his late header flew wide, but it was Barcelona who snatched the points.

When Frenkie de Jong turned in Torres’ selfless squared pass.

Mendez missed a late chance to equalise, but the visitors held on for an important win.

Deportivo Alaves 0-1 Barcelona


0-1. Barcelona takes the lead late on. Alba cuts inside and curls in a beautiful cross to the back post.

Torres latches onto it and squares it across the goal where an unmarked Frenkie de Jong is waiting to slot it in from six yards.
