Carles Alena scored his first La Liga goal for Barcelona on Sunday in some style, as the champions beat Villarreal 2-0 at the Camp Nou.

Gerard Pique headed Barcelona in front in the first half, and Alena made the game safe after replacing Arturo Vidal in the second half.

The 20-year-old was put through by a brilliant ball from Lionel Messi but then came up with a superb dinked finish to beat Sergio Asenjo.

It was some strike from Alena and a great way to seal victory.

We should hopefully get to see him back in action on Wednesday when Barcelona face Cultural Leonesa in the second leg of their Copa del Rey clash.
