Ilkay Gundogan and Pedri scored quickly to level the game after Villarreal took a 2-0 lead, during which Bailly found himself in a confrontation with Lewandowski inside the goal. Bailly was fortunate not to receive a red card for this incident. However, three minutes later, a header from Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo deflected off Bailly and went into his own net, giving Xavi’s side the lead in the 71st minute.
Villarreal managed to come back with Goncalo Guedes equalizing in the 84th minute, before Alexander Sorloth and Jose Luis Morales both scored in added time, securing their victory.
