FC Barcelona manage to get a win in their final game of the season. La Blaugrana did not have anything at stake in this game in terms of La Liga standings, but they did have something else at stake. With Xavi Hernandez now having coached his final game for Barcelona, the team managed to give him a 2-1 victory to remember.

Goals from both Robert Lewandowski and Fermin Lopez were ultimately enough to give all three points to Barça. With the season now officially over for La Blaugrana, it is time for them to recharge, prepare for the upcoming continental tournaments, and then return with hopes for a better next season.

Here are the player ratings for Xavi’s Barcelona.

Player Ratings:

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen: 7.5

Barça’s first-choice goalkeeper led Xavi’s team for the last time as Barcelona captain. His saves were reliable throughout the course of the game, but his ball-playing truly stood out in order to help Barcelona out against Sevilla.

Joao Cancelo: 8.5

The Portuguese fullback was quite the offensive threat, and made some great movements both on and off the ball. His defensive work was commendable tonight, and he also provided a stunning assist to Robert Lewandowski for his opener.

Inigo Martinez: 7.0

Despite his experience, Inigo Martinez ultimately faltered rather clumsily when Sevilla opened their scoring. However, apart from that one moment of frustration, the veteran Spaniard had a solid outing and was reliable both in terms of playing out from the back and defending as well.

Pau Cubarsi: 7.0

The youngster was just as important as Inigo Martinez in helping Barcelona keep Sevilla at bay. Still, just a teenager, Pau Cubarsi’s maturity on a football field is still as commendable as ever.

Jules Kounde: 5.0

One of the more dull performances from Jules Kounde this season, the Frenchman was hardly at the level that he usually is at. Mistakes both in attack and defense from him could have been much costlier for Barcelona by the end of the final whistle.

Andreas Christensen: 6.5

The Danish defender was once again key for Barcelona in the heart of the midfield. His performances as a pivot continue to impress, and it was only through his presence that the Catalans managed to maintain their structure as well as they did.

Ilkay Gundogan: 6.5

While the German midfielder may not have had his most prolific outing as a Barcelona player, he was still a reliable asset in midfield. From his passing to his retention in possession, Ilkay Gundogan was there to give Barça that extra bit of control.

Pedri: 8.0

Pedri was once again sensational with almost every touch he took. Even the first goal that Barcelona scored came through Pedri’s genius touch that allowed Joao Cancelo to get a lot of space. Beyond just the goal, the young Barcelona star was integral for the team both in chance creation and also defensively.

Fermin Lopez: 9.0

Brilliant work from the start of the game until his substitution, Fermin Lopez had quite the extraordinary outing. His passes, runs, and offensive attempts were all quite dangerous for Sevilla to deal with, and he ultimately got his goal with a brilliant strike from outside the box.

Robert Lewandowski: 8.0

A solid outing for Robert Lewandowski, who was once again the Barcelona star who opened the scoring for his team. The Polish striker continues to score, and while he may not have won the Pichichi this time around, he possibly gives some level of excitement to incoming manager Hansi Flick with his recent scoring form.

Lamine Yamal: 7.5

Creating chances out of nothing, and taking on multiple Sevilla defenders at the same time, Lamine Yamal was quite the watch for as long as he was on the field. While he may not have gotten a goal or assist as he would have hoped for, Yamal was a headache for Sevilla to deal with.

Substitutes:

Oriol Romeu: 6.0

Did not have much of an impact in proceedings, but looked quite fresh and helped out the team in the second half as he looked to disarm any potential Sevilla attacks.

Ferran Torres: 5.5

Playing from the right wing, Ferran Torres was hardly effective. Despite creating a few good openings for his teammates, not the most convincing of performances.

Joao Felix: 5.0

Tried a few acrobatic attempts while he looked to work his magic whenever he could. Could not do too much, however.

Vitor Roque: N/A

Not enough influence or time in the game to warrant a rating.

Hector Fort: N/A

Not enough influence or time in the game to warrant a rating.
