Sport: Yamal was released by more than twice his age Ilkay Gündogan (33) five minutes before the break. Alone with the goalkeeper, the youngster coolly put the ball into the goal.

The goal was Yamal’s fifth in the league this season. Despite his young age, he has been on the pitch in 34 of Barcelona’s 35 league matches. 19 of them he has played from the start.

In overtime in the second half, Raphinha made the final score 2-0 from the penalty spot.

Monday’s victory ensured that Barcelona again climbed past Girona in the La Liga table. One point separates the silver medal with three league rounds remaining.

Real Madrid are already supreme league champions. 14 points separate teams number one and two in the table. Real’s star gallery can also end the season with a win in the Champions League. In the final, Borussia Dortmund awaits.
