It can be said that things are getting settled now at Barcelona after weeks. Xavi’s men are now winning games and scoring goals. Earlier, they defeated Atletico Madrid by 4-2 and showed that they can score. On top of that, they defended their lead with 10 men as Dani Alves was sent off.
Now, in the game against local rival Espanyol, Barca started well and scored in the very second minute of the game. It was youngster Pedri who tapped in with a stretching leg of Jordi Alba’s cross.

They gave us the ball in 10 seconds. And concede in 2 mins. This will be great for the team who actually have their stadium in Barcelona.#ForcaBarca#EspanyolBarca

Lovely cross from Jordi Alba and Pedri slabs it home at the back post after just two minutes. Dream start to the Barcelona derby for Barça 0-1 #EspanyolBarça

Barcelona started strong and this was much needed for Xavi’s men. If they manage to keep this scoreline, they will be in the top 4, with a 2 point lead against defending Champions Atletico Madrid. Also, they will be only 2 points behind Real Betis, with a game in hand.
Barca’s Starting XI Against Espanyol
Xavi used his typical 4-3-3 against Espanyol. Moreover, Dest was back in the starting XI and joined Pique, Araujo, and Jordi Alba.
As usual, it was Busquets holding the midfield area with De Jong. Pedri also continued to start and made his 4th La Liga appearance of the season. New signings of the club, Torres, and Traore started in the front along with Gavi.
Ter Stegen continued to appear near the Barca poles.
