Hard fought win against Athletic

October 30, 2017

Barcelona continued their unbeaten winning streak in La Liga on Saturday night, beating Athletic Bilbao 2-0 in the Basque Country. Messi scored the opener towards the end of the first half, with Paulinho scoring two minutes into injury time at the end of the match.

The match was hard fought though and the hosts created danger for the Catalans too. Ter Stegen made a number of good saves and was lucky not to concede any goals.

0-1 Messi (min 36)
0-2 Paulinho (min 90+2)

FC Barcelona remains four points clear of Valencia and eight ahead of Real Madrid, who were humiliated by Girona by a 2-1 defeat on Sunday.
