Kevin-Prince Boateng’s house burgled during Valladolid victory

Kevin-Prince Boateng saw his house burgled whilst playing for Barcelona against Real Valladolid on Saturday evening.

Robbers are said to have stolen personal items, including jewellery, watches and money from the Ghana international’s home, estimated to be worth €300-400,000.

Boateng becomes the latest player to have his home robbed this season, seeing Jordi Alba suffer the same fate earlier this term.

Lionel Messi scored a spot kick to earn Barcelona a hard-worked 1-0 win over Real Valladolid on Sunday evening.

Ernesto Valverde’s side have struggled of late, being held by Athletic Bilbao last weekend to see the gap between themselves and chaser Real and Atletico Madrid get smaller.

With all eyes on Lyon in the Champions League next week, Valverde opted to leave Luis Suarez, Clement Lenglet and Philippe Coutimho on the bench and that allowed Boateng a start.

The former AC Milan striker had the opening chance for Barca, but his weak effort did not test Jordi Masip in the Valladolid goal.

Barca dominated for the most part but Masip was proving in superb form as he denied Messi, Ousmane Dembele and Gerard Pique.

The opening and only goal of the game would come when Pique advanded into the box and was fouled, leaving Messi to convert his spot kick.

The Argentine forward had another chance from the spot in the second half but Masip was not being beaten for a second time and he saved from 12 yards.
