Ousmane Dembele, take a bow!
Everybody feared the worst for Barcelona at the beginning of the season, when the Catalan giants let go of one of football’s biggest stars, Neymar, to PSG.
Barca started the season in horrific fashion, losing the Super Copa to Real Madrid over two legs.
Valverde replaced Neymar with Borussia Dortmund’s exciting winger, Ousmane Dembele and all was back on track.
Barcelona are unbeaten so far in La Liga this season but Dembele has been unlucky with injuries and missed the majority of the campaign.
The young Frenchman netted his first goal for the club during the Champions League last 16 clash against Chelsea at the Nou Camp.
Dembele vs Celta Vigo
Tonight, Dembele has opened his La Liga account with a stunning strike against Celta Vigo.
The 20 year old finished off a fantastic Barcelona move assisted by Paco Alcacer.

Dembele scored 10 goals and picked up 21 assists last season with Borussia Dortmund and after a long spell on the sidelines, he is starting to show his quality in Spain.
Provided that Dembele can stay fit, he surely has a brilliantly bright future ahead of him in Spain.
Celta Vigo 2-2 Barcelona
Dembele’s strike gave Barcelona the lead away at the Balaídos stadium before Celta’s right-back Jonathan Castro Otto equalised on the stroke of half time.
Former Valencia striker Paco Alcacer restored Barca’s lead in the 64th minute but former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas levelled the score with less than 6 minutes on the clock.
The point takes Barcelona’s unbeaten run to 40 matches
It’s now only a matter of time before Barcelona get their hands on their 25th La Liga title.
