Robert Lewandowski definitely enjoy life as Barcelona player.
The Polish striker has joined the Catalan club since Bayern Munich this summer in a deal worth around €45m and he was quick to adapt to the pace of La Liga football.
Ahead of Barcelona’s game at Sevilla on Saturday night, Lewandowski had already scored four goals in the Spanish top flight.
The 34-year-old maestro picked up braces in comfortable wins over Real Valladolid and Real Sociedad.
Lewandowski then scored five goals for the season in the first half against Sevilla to give Barcelona a 2-0 lead.
And it was also a thing of beauty.
Shortly after Raphinha struck to give Xavi Hernandez’s side a 1-0 advantage, Lewandowski and Jules Kounde combined to devastating effect.
Kounde – who played against his former club – found his new teammate unmarked inside the box with a brilliant pass, although there was still plenty of work for Lewandowski to do.
But he did it superbly.
Lewandowski skillfully controlled the ball to his chest and then stole home with his trusty right ankle.
It was really the most beautiful goal.

Wonderful, simply wonderful.
The new arrivals from Barcelona are settling in very, very well. Lewandowski is going to score for fun and he probably should have had his second of the game just before half-time in Sevilla.
Poland’s record goalscorer was open in the box after a sweeping counterattack, but Ousmane Dembele – the orchestrator of the move – decided to go it alone and his chipped effort went horribly wide from the far post.
Needless to say, Lewandowski was not a happy bunny…

If you want to ignore Lewandowski when he’s free in the box, you just have to score.
Luckily for Dembele, he wasn’t forced to pay for his slight misjudgment as Barcelona made it 3-0 early in the second half.
Ancient Manchester City defender Eric Garcia was the man responsible for the goal and he saw Kounde pick up another assist against his former team.
Barcelona failed to score again but their 3-0 win over Sevilla means they both remain unbeaten so far this season and just two points behind the top performers. real Madrid.
