Kevin-Prince Boateng's residence in Spain was burgled on Saturday while he was in action for Barcelona in their 1-0 win over Real Valladolid.

The Ghanaian midfielder played his first match at the Camp Nou as well as his first league match for the league leaders as Lionel Messi's effort from the spot gave the hosts a victory.

He was in action for 60 minutes before he was replaced by Luis Suarez as Ernesto Valverde's men held on to their seven-point lead at the summit of the LaLiga table.

Boateng's league debut, however, was overshadowed by an ugly incident after some thieves barged into his private residence located in Sarria district to steal his possessions.

Marca reports that jewellery, watches and cash worth over €300,000 were stolen from his house.

While police continue investigating the incident, the attacker will hope to get some playing minutes when Barcelona visit Lyon for Tuesday's Uefa Champions League fixture.
