Lewandowski inspires Barca rout of Cadiz

Barcelona’s La Liga game at Cadiz was halted for about 50 minutes because a fan had a medical emergency.

The visitors were leading 2-0 with fewer than 10 minutes remaining when the incident happened.

Cadiz goalkeeper Jeremias Ledesma ran across the pitch with a medical kit and threw it into the stands before the players were taken off.

The fan was taken to hospital by ambulance and Barca boss Xavi said: “We all agreed to stop [the game].”

He added: “This sort of thing goes beyond football, we’re talking about a human life here.

“Fortunately they managed to save him.”

There were two further goals when play resumed as Barca moved top of the table thanks to a fourth successive league win.

Netherlands midfielder Frenkie de Jong swept in the opener for Barca while Poland striker Robert Lewandowski slid in the visitors’ second shortly after his introduction as a substitute.

He has now scored nine goals in six appearances since his summer move from Bayern Munich.

Fellow substitute Ansu Fati added a third while France forward Ousmane Dembele rounded off the scoring late on.

Xavi’s side sit a point above champions Real Madrid, who play Mallorca in Sunday’s early kickoff.

Barcelona have scored 15 times and conceded just once since their opening-day stalemate against Rayo Vallecano.
