Another big win against Eibar

January 23, 2017

Sunday night saw Barcelona secure another three points in their race to close the gap on Madrid. Going into this weekend Eibar were ninth in the table and despite a record of big defeats against Barça, a win could not be taken for granted.

On the downside, Sergio Busquets was stretched off after ten minutes, although it appears his injury is not as severe as first thought.

Denis Suárez, brought on as his replacement, scored the opener at the start of the the last quarter of an hour of the first half. Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar scored one each in the second half.

0-1 Denis Suárez (min 31)
0-2 Messi (min 50)
0-3 Suárez (min 68)
0-4 Neymar (min 90+1)

There is just two points between Barcelona, still in third place, and Real Madrid at the top of the table. Between them lies Sevilla. Remember though that Madrid has a game in hand still.
