Robbers are stated to have stolen private goods, like jewelry, watches and cash from the Ghana international’s home, estimated to be worth €300-400,000.

Boateng gets the latest player to have his home robbed this season, observing Jordi Alba undergo the very same fate earlier this time period.

Lionel Messi scored a spot kick to gain Barcelona a really hard-labored 1- win around Real Valladolid on Sunday evening.

Ernesto Valverde’s team have struggled of late, getting held by Athletic Bilbao very last weekend to see the gap in between on their own and chaser Real and Atletico Madrid get smaller.

With all eyes on Lyon in the Champions League next 7 days, Valverde opted to go away Luis Suarez, Clement Lenglet and Philippe Coutimho on the bench and that allowed Boateng a start.

The former AC Milan attacker experienced the opening prospect for Barca, but his weak hard work did not test Jordi Masip in the Valladolid goal.

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

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

The Argentine forward experienced one more prospect from the spot in the next 50 percent but Masip was not getting beaten for a 2nd time and he saved from 12 yards.
