Girona vs Barcelona

And just like that, Lionel Messi already has nine league goals in five matches. The 30-year-old Argentine grabbed for himself four in midweek as Barcelona clobbered Eibar 6-1. Only god knows how Girona will crack the defence. They have only three goals to show for in their five league games so far. Two of those goals came on opening day, a 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid. Barca sit two points clear at the top, and could potentially move five points clear of nearest rivals Sevilla, who are in early action against Atletico Madrid. Samuel Umtiti, Jordi Alba and Luis Suarez are all expected to be back in action after missing out last week.


Match Stats:

  • Girona 0-3 Barcelona
  • Shots: 12-8
  • Possession: 40%-60%
  • Corner kicks: 9-3

Barcelona made it six wins out of six in La Liga with victory at Catalan neighbours Girona.

Barca's first two goals came from own goals by the hosts, who are in their first La Liga season.

Aday Benitez deflected Jordi Alba's shot into his own net and keeper Gorka Iraizoz turned Aleix Vidal's cross into his own net.

Luis Suarez smashed home the third after latching on to a Sergi Roberto long ball.
