Barcelona 1-0 Espanyol – Goals & Highlights Video

Barca 1-0 Ibra

Barcelona needed a dubious penalty decision six minutes before half-time to overcome city rivals Espanyol in the Catalan derby this evening.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic rifled home the spot-kick after Xavi had gone down far too easily in the area, and the Swede’s strike proved enough to give Pep Guardiola’s side all three points against a limited Espanyol outfit.

Barca dominated virtually from start to finish, but were missing their usual attacking verve in the absence of the injured Lionel Messi.

Guardiola’s side were otherwise full-strength for the derby.
