Barcelona closes the gap

February 4, 2008

With Real Madrid losing to Almeria on Saturday night, all that remained was for Barça to pocket their three points and close the gap on their rival. However, it almost didn’t happen at a rain soaked Camp Nou; despite numerous attacks on Osasuna’s goal, the ball just didn’t go in, and with a couple of dangerous looking breaks from Osasuna it looks like the match could go either way.

However, Barça’s determined efforts eventually paid off in the 87th minute, when Xavi put the ball home.
