Barcelona player ratings: Ansu Fati puts family controversy behind him while Robert Lewandowski ends goal drought vs Elche

Ansu Fati Barcelona celebrate Elche 2022-23

Ansu Fati bagged a rare goal after a week of controversy involving comments from his father, while Robert Lewandowski grabbed a brace to give a heavily-rotated Barca side a 4-0 win over last-placed Elche. Xavi benched a number of his regulars ahead of Wednesday's Clasico, and a makeshift line-up dispatched the home side to go 15 points clear atop La Liga.

Lewandowski, who didn't score for his club in March, opened the festivities inside 20 minutes, reacting first to a loose ball before guiding his shot through a crowded box and into the corner. He should have found a second shortly before the break, instead nodding over from five yards out.

Fati made it two early in the second half with a driven strike from outside the box - his first goal since January 19. Lewandowski completed his brace a few minutes later, before Ferran Torres curled one into the far corner to put the league leaders up 4-0.

The Blaugrana now have a 15-point advantage over Real Madrid, but all eyes turn to Wednesday's Clasico in the Copa del Rey semi-final.
