Xavi Hernandez's Barcelona treated fans at the Estadio Lluis Companys to a footballing treat when they put five past Manuel Pellegrini's Real Betis.

The fixture, which appeared to be the perfect showing for new signings Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo, was utterly dominated by La Blaugrana.

The reigning Spanish champions raced into the lead courtesy of a sublime finish from former Atletico Madrid forward, Felix.

Xavi's side extended their lead further with a beautiful team goal from Lewandowski.

A free kick from Ferran Torres, a strike from outside the box by Raphinha, and a silky finish from Cancelo wrapped up an emphatic display from the Catalans, as reported by Goal.

Amid the flurry of goals that Barcelona fans were treated to, it was the reaction of Gavi to Lewandowski's goal that caught the attention of many.

Gavi's reaction to Lewandowski's strike

In a video shared by ESPN FC on TikTok, the young midfielder leaped onto the shoulder of Lewandowski, who appeared to relish the moment.

The Polish captain took a few steps and ensured Gavi was correctly positioned on his shoulders. The unscripted moment has fans reacting in their numbers:

@Azlan replied:

"Gavi looks younger than Yamal 😂😂"

@Jcz reacted:

"Gavi doing Gavi things"

@user4614404814407 focused on the manner in which Lewandowski lifted the midfielder:

"The way he held Gavi up was so smooth"

@MARE found humour in the bromance:

"Gavi is just a little kid"

@Spenequator was impressed with the display:

"No one is talking about Lewandowski's strength 😳"

Lewandowski blasts La Liga referees

In another report, Sports Brief stated that Lewandowski criticised the standard of officiating in Spanish football, joining several other superstars who have blasted referees recently.

The 34-year-old forward led Barcelona to the La Liga title last season but said he was appalled by the level of officiating, which he feels has made Spain's top flight unattractive.
