Busquets, MVP

The Blaugrana midfielder received the Estrella Damm Trophy for the best Gamper player after demonstrating his strength once again. He also scored a stunning goal to make it 2-0 on the night. His last goal in an official match came way back in the 2014/15 season against Valencia at Mestalla (1-0).
