Paulinho Scores Again as Barca Defeat Bilbao
Paulinho was on the scoresheet again for Barcelona as they beat Athletic Bilbao 2-0 in San Mimes, with the Brazilian grabbing a stoppage time goal to add to Lionel Messi’s earlier strike.
Paulinho was quick to single out two of his teammates after the important victory that keeps Barca top of La Liga, “Messi was decisive once again,” he said. “Ter Stegen also had a great game and the defence was very organised.
“Of course I am happy with the goal, but the three points are the most important. This was a very difficult game and they put us under a lot of pressure in the second half.
“At the moment I am really enjoying it here. I have the trust of my teammates and I am working on getting better every day.”
