Ansu Fati struck twice in the first half and Gavi added one after the break as the Catalans triumphed in their last home game of the season.

La Liga champion Barcelona enjoyed a series of emotional farewells in its final match at Camp Nou before the colosseum is rebuilt, thrashing Real Mallorca 3- 0 on Sunday.

Captain Sergio Busquets and protector Jordi Alba also played at home for the last time, in the club’s penultimate league match of the season, and were awarded warm farewells by the sell- eschewal crowd.

Ansu Fati struck doubly in the first half and Gavi added one after the break as the Catalans triumphed in style.

Marc- Andre ter Stegen earned his 26th clean distance of the season, equalling the each- time record in the division, set by Deportivo La Coruna’s Francisco Liano in the 1993- 94 crusade.

The only bad news for Barcelona came when protector Alejandro Balde was taken off injured in the first half.

The left- reverse was dived at by Mallorca’s Amath Ndiaye, who was transferred off.

Balde will be out for six to seven weeks, missing the club’s final La Liga game and the Nations League final four with Spain.

Camp Nou, inaugurated in September 1957, has been one of football’s most iconic colosseums. Barcelona will play its home games coming season at the Olympic Stadium on Montjuic, a hill in the megacity, aiming for a return to the rebuilt Camp Nou in November 2024 if construction goes to plan.

The Catalans took the lead when Gavi fed Fati for an easy finish, and the forward struck again after Robert Lewandowski set him up.

Jules Kounde and Lewandowski hit the woodwork in the alternate half and Ousmane Dembele had a title cleared off the line, before Gavi thrashed home the third.

Alba departed in gashes when he was substituted in the final stages with the crowd chanting his name, while Busquets followed and was given an acclamation of his own.

The brace could yet appear in Barcelona’s final game of the season at Celta Vigo coming weekend, but for nearly 90,000 sympathizers, this is the end of an period.

Barcelona left- back Alejandro Balde will miss Spain’s UEFA Nations League final- four matches in June after suffering a partial ankle ligament gash on Sunday.

The 19- time-old protector was fouled by Real Mallorca’s Amath Ndiaye, who was transferred off for his unattractive jab.

Balde was carried off the pitch by teammate Jules Kounde and Barcelona staff. The club latterly released a statement saying he’ll be sidelined for six to seven weeks. Know More Football News…
