- ESPN+ viewers' guide: LaLiga, Bundesliga, MLS, FA Cup, more - Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S. only) - Don't have ESPN? Get instant access Xavi probably could not have asked for much more in his first barcelona vs espanyol managing a struggling Barca team who are sixth in the standings, eight points behind leaders Sevilla.
It was a dominating performance despite the scoreline and it happened in front of an almost sold-out Camp Nou that exuded hope and excitement for the first time in a long while. Xavi Hernandez earned his first win as Barcelona manager. Getty After dominating the first half it took 40 seconds after the break for Barcelona to get a penalty.
Gavi played a brilliant through pass to Memphis Depay who was caught by a sliding tackle from Leandro Cabrera. The Dutchman got up to net the spot kick. The general optimism on the city's streets following Xavi's arrival was reflected inside the stadium.
The 74,418 fans who turned up awoke a sleeping giant of a stadium that had been recording low attendances this season due to side's bad results. Xavi's Barca played well and the supporters responded like it was the beginning of a new era. The third generation in a succession line that started with Johan Cruyff, continued with Pep Guardiola and finally has a faithful servant in Xavi.
Barca's style of possession with authority was back.
Early in the game, 17-year-old debutant Ilias Akhomach skied a fine chance inside the six-yard box from a low cross barcelona vs espanyol fellow teenager Gavi after a fine combination of passes. But it was a collective effort that had classic Barca written all over it. The hosts were comfortable in control of the ball, with over 70% of possession, cornering Espanyol who had no answers except to defend with a five men deep in a defensive line. Depay's opener saw the fans explode with joy and Barcelona could have score more goals with a little bit of luck.
As they relaxed towards the end Espanyol had chances to equalise through Raul de Tomas, who twice hit the post. But the hosts held on for a first win in their last five league games.

Reuters • • Facebook • Twitter • Facebook Messenger • Pinterest • Email Barcelona kept up their pursuit of leaders Real Madrid in the La Liga title race by beating city rivals Espanyol 1-0 at home on Wednesday, also condemning their neighbours to relegation from the top flight.
- Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ - What did you miss? The latest from Europe's top leagues - Hunter: Messi masterminds Griezmann resurgence Luis Suarez struck the only goal of the game in the 56th minute, lashing a loose ball into the net for his 195th goal with Barca which took him past Hungarian Laszlo Kubala as the club's third top scorer of all time.
The goal came shortly after both sides had been reduced to 10 men in a frantic start to the second half. Editor's Picks • Ter Stegen 8/10 as Barca keep slim title hopes alive with derby win 1 Related Barca's teenage forward Ansu Fati was sent off for a reckless tackle five minutes after coming off the bench but Espanyol's numerical advantage lasted barcelona vs espanyol three minutes as Pol Lozano was dismissed, also following a VAR review.
Barca, chasing a third consecutive Spanish title, are on 76 points after 35 games while Real Madrid are top with 77 and can restore their four-point advantage when they host Alaves on Friday. Espanyol, one of Spain's most prestigious clubs, were relegated for the first time since winning promotion back to La Liga in 1994. They are bottom of the table on 24 points after 35 games.
Barca had produced one of their best performances of the season by hammering Villarreal 4-1 away on Sunday but they looked sluggish at an empty Camp Nou, which normally would have been in full voice on derby day.
"We knew how difficult this game would be because of Espanyol's situation and we were tired from Sunday's game and we played with less intensity," Suarez said.
"But the important thing is that we won the game and picked up more points." Espanyol frustrated their more illustrious neighbours in the first half with a five-man defence and created the better chances. Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen had to be aware to prevent his team mate Clement Lenglet from scoring an own goal just before halftime and Espanyol's Didac Vila fired the loose ball against the post.
Ter Stegen had also come to Barca's rescue earlier, spreading his body and keeping out a low strike from Adri Embarba with his leg.
"We did not play well today," Barca coach Quique Setien said. "Their defensive shape made life very difficult for us as they were very tight and compact and we weren't precise enough to find a way around it." Barca found a way through with the help of their three forwards, as Antoine Griezmann raced to the byline and passed to Lionel Messi whose shot deflected into the path of Suarez and the Uruguayan made no mistake.
Suarez now only trails the late Cesar, who netted 232 goals for Barca and record-holder Messi who has scored 630 for the club. • Facebook • Twitter • Facebook Messenger • • Email POS Team GP GD PTS 1 Real Madrid 35 +43 81 2 Barcelona 35 +30 69 3 Sevilla 35 +22 65 4 Atletico Madrid 35 +19 64 5 Real Betis 35 +17 58 6 Real Sociedad 35 0 56 7 Villarreal 35 +21 53 8 Athletic Club 35 +7 52 9 Osasuna 35 -10 46 10 Valencia 35 -4 44 11 Celta Vigo 35 +3 43 12 Rayo Vallecano 35 -4 42 13 Espanyol 35 -12 40 barcelona vs espanyol Elche 35 -11 39 15 Getafe 35 -6 37 16 Cádiz 35 -14 35 17 Granada 35 -16 34 18 Mallorca 35 -30 32 19 Levante 35 -23 29 20 Alavés 35 -32 28 Full Table

After beating Atletico Madrid last weekend to jump into the top four and boost their chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona could not build off barcelona vs espanyol, drawing city rival Espanyol on Sunday, 2-2.
Barca had positioned themselves well to potentially finish in barcelona vs espanyol top four, and that possibility certainly still remains, but Sunday's draw showed just more of the glaring issues the club is facing as it continues to struggle to find its identity after Lionel Messi's departure in the summer.
Xavi's men were fortunate to get anything out of this match, needing a last-gasp equalizer from striker Luuk de Jong to rescue a point. BARCELONA EQUALIZE IN STOPPAGE TIME 🤯 pic.twitter.com/VwCrobws2Q— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) February 13, 2022 Barca took the lead two minutes in thanks to Pedri, but they did little else the rest of the way despite having most of the possession. Their recent momentum looked set barcelona vs espanyol evaporate before their Europa League round of 32 showdown with Napoli on Thursday, but they managed to salvage some of it.
Former Spain u21 talent Sergi Darder stole barcelona vs espanyol show for Espanyol, recording a fantastic equalizer before setting up striker Raul de Tomas with this exquisite through ball, exposing young centerback Ronald Araujo in the process, giving the underdogs a 2-1 lead. Barca have now gone eight league games unbeaten, but despite looking to have been turning the corner a bit under Xavi, this did not offer much to be excited about.
While the Copa del Rey exit last month to Athletic Bilbao was a low moment of the season, Barca were going for their third straight league win here and looked ready thanks to the hot start. But a predictable team with new attackers who have yet to gel showed once again how far they have to go before becoming fas reliable as Barca of old.
To make matters worse, centerback Gerard Pique was sent off in added time for pulling the hair of his opponent as a reaction to a poor challenge. On paper, it's a poor result for Barca, but it is one they will take considering the loss looked certain in the final moments.
