Carles Aleña was the happiest player on the pitch as Barcelona beat Villarreal as he scored his first LaLiga goal in the 2-0 win. 

The La Masia midfielder came on in the 70th minute and in the 87th minute scored the goal which clinched the game. 

Speaking afterwards, he said: "Thanks to my teammates, everything went well, but the win was the most important thing against an opponent that made things difficult.

Aleña's goal was set up by a fine Lionel Messi pass and he added: "Everything is easier with Messi, only he can see that pass. He puts the ball where he wants. Then, with the one on one, I was really happy to score at Camp Nou. It's a dream come true."  

Now the midfielder wants to feature more for the first team after injury stunted his progress in preseason. 

"I have to take advantage of the chances I get, like in the Copa the other day and then again today," he said.

"It's about doing well and giving the coach a headache when it comes to picking the team. I know I am doing well and now I have to make the most of the opportunities which come my way."
