Two points dropped in Barcelona derby

April 19, 2010

FC Barcelona’s lead over Real Madrid dropped to a single point after drawing in the Barcelona derby, while Real Madrid beat Valencia at the Bernabeu.

Barça took the short trip to Espanyol’s new stadium at Cornellá on Saturday, where the first half saw them kept under pressure and unable to find their usual style. There was plenty of rough play too, with two yellow cards handed out to Espanyol before Alves picked one up in minute 24.

Barcelona looked better in the second half, and play started to flow. Even after Alves received his second yellow in the 61st minute Barça dominated, but despite some attempts on the goal they were unable to score for those additional two points.
