Barcelona held on for a hard-earned win over Real Valladolid as the home team had a late equaliser cancelled by VAR.

Video Assistant Referee was introduced to La Liga this season and was instrumental to show that Keko's diving header was offside.

French winger Ousmane Dembele net a second-half winner to give the champions a second win in as many La Liga matches.

Large divots appeared throughout the match and was a constant problem to both teams as they were forced to try to fix patches of turf, reports suggest that the pitch was laid few days before the match.

Barcelona maintain their 100% start to their title defence after a 3-0 victory over Alaves in their first game.
