Joao Felix, Barcelona's new forward, scored twice in a dominant 5-0 win over Royal Antwerp in the Champions League Group H opener. 

Barcelona, led by coach Xavi Hernandez, showcased their best quality of play in a while, impressing with quick passes and a football masterclass. 

Joao Felix opened the scoring with a low strike, setting the tone for Barcelona's victory in the 11th minute. 

Robert Lewandowski became the third player to score 100 goals in European competition, thanks to an assist from Felix. 

Raphinha's strike led to an own goal, making it 3-0 in favor of Barcelona after 22 minutes. 

Arbnor Muja had a chance for Antwerp, but goalkeeper Marc Andre ter Stegen denied his attempt. 

Gavi added to Barcelona's lead with a powerful shot, making it 4-0 in their 28th Champions League group-stage campaign. 

Felix sealed the win with a header, completing the 5-0 rout at Barcelona's temporary home while Camp Nou undergoes redevelopment. 

Barcelona dominated with 22 goal attempts, while Antwerp managed only three in their first Champions League appearance in over six decades. 

Porto also secured a victory in Group H, beating Shakhtar Donetsk 3-1 in Hamburg.
