Three points for uninspired Barça

September 23, 2010

David Villa scored the only goal of the match last night in an uninspiring game against Sport de Gijon, with the Catalans seeming to miss Messi, who is off with an ankle injury.

Although Barça dominated the first half, Sporting shoped that they weren’t there to be walked over either. After half an hour Guardiola changed the team’s formation to try and push things Barcelona’s way, but it wasn’t until the second half that David Villa broke through and scored the game’s single goal.

At least that puts Barçain a more familiar position in the league standings. They are now third, after Real Madrid and Valencia, who made their first slip of the season with a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid.

1-0 Villa (min 49)
