Depay shot the ball in uncovered after half an hour from more than ten meters, after good preparatory work by Ousmane Dembélé, who had come up on the right flank. It was Depay’s twelfth goal of the season.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it 2-0 just before half-time and immediately after the interruption, the Gabonese also made it 3-0. At the 2-0 he already hit the ball with the left, at the 3-0 he shoved the ball in with the right. Dembélé was also the principal at the 3-0. Iago Aspas did something back, but after a red card for Colombian Jeison Murillo of Celta, it was no longer exciting.
Depay was replaced after more than an hour for Ansu Fati. Frenkie de Jong did play the entire match, while Luuk de Jong came in for Aubameyang in the final phase.
With the win, Barça widened the gap with Sevilla to 7 points. Sevilla will play at home against Real Mallorca on Wednesday.
