“Lewandowski’s Brilliance Sparks Barcelona Resurgence: Double Delight Seals Comeback Victory Against Alaves”

Polish champion In the Spanish league, Barcelona overcame a 2-1 deficit to defeat Alaves thanks to two goals from Robert Lewandowski. This victory puts them four points behind Girona, the surprising leaders.

With the victory at home on Sunday, Barcelona also pulled within two points of Real Madrid, who topped Valencia 5-1 the day before. Real Madrid is currently in second position.

Girona, a fellow Catalan team, overcame a one-goal deficit to win 2-1 at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

One minute into the game in Montjuic, Alaves seized the lead on a breakaway, but Lewandowski gave the home team a boost with a header in the 53rd and a penalty in the 78th minutes.

Lewandowski, who had an injury lately and missed six games, hadn’t scored in six games since winning 3-2 over Celta Vigo in September.

Barcelona had just lost 1-0 at Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League group stage.

In their first “clasico” of the season, they were defeated 2-1 at home by Real Madrid two weeks prior, and they also need a stoppage-time goal to defeat Real Sociedad the previous weekend.
