Arturo Vidal was a rather surprising signing when Barcelona bought him from Bayern Munich, as the Chilean international was the exact opposite of the traits and requirements of a Barcelona midfielder.

However, throughout his career, the former Juventus man has proven himself to be a serial winner who is willing to give his all in a bid to achieve success with his team and his spell at Camp Nou has been no different.

Despite being a squad player on occasion, Vidal has always performed at an optimum and has benefited from an advanced role this season, with his tally of six goals and two assists from just seven starts in the league indicative of his growing influence on the team.

Like fellow South American Luis Suarez, he seems to have developed an on-field partnership with Lionel Messi and having started in the home behind the front two, he combined well with Junor Firpo on the left flank and ended his night with the assist for Messi's second goal.

The 32-year-old had two shots, hitting the target once, while he also made two key passes and would have registered a second assist but for Griezmann's wastefulness from his excellent cutback.
