Lionel Messi’s desire to leave Barcelona showed no signs of impacting his performance on the pitch as he and Ansu Fati led Villarreal’s 4-0 teardown on Sunday, marking a triumphant start for the Ronald Koeman era

Barca have been engulfed in all manner of unrest since their 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in their previous competitive game on August 14, with the unsuccessful attempt to force a transfer of club talisman Messi no doubt the big title, but as they started their 2020-21 season, they’ve proven that this is not a team to be canceled lightly

Fati started the ball rolling with an impressive brace in five minutes, before winning the penalty which was scored by Messi, who then saw a cross of his returned by Villarreal defender Pau Torres

Unai Emery’s side tightened in the second half, with Barca having a little less freedom in the final third as a result, but Villarreal’s slight improvement had no impact on what was a easy start for Koeman in La Liga

With Messi’s future in the air, Fati had apparently been billed as the poster for this new era at Barca and he was rightly their inspiration here, opening the scoring 15 minutes with an emphatic first arrival from Jordi alba reduce

The teenager was decisive again moments later, hanging onto Philippe Coutinho’s crooked ball and calmly passing the helpless Sergio Asenjo, who also had no response to Messi’s penalty, which was also won by the ubiquitous Fati

Things got worse for the visitors at the stroke of halftime, with Torres pushing Messi’s cross past Asenjo as the unlikely specter of Sergio Busquets lurked for a tap-in

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Barca’s intensity dropped after the interval and Villarreal became a more compact unit after a few changes at halftime

Koeman took the opportunity to give Fati some rest with 20 minutes remaining, with another talented teenager – Pedri – who had the chance to step off the bench for his La Liga debut after joining Las Palmas

Miralem Pjanic and Francisco Trincao also made their debuts as substitutes, with the young Portuguese winger almost adding a fifth goal by stabbing Asenjo’s palms, but Villarreal managed to avoid any further embarrassment
