Barcelona continued from where they stopped before the international break by beating Mallorca 0-1 at Son Moix 287 km from the Spotify Camp Nou. Ansu Fati’s pass set up an audacious strike by Robert Lewandoski in the 20th minute of the match, and an outstanding save from Andre Marc-Ter Stegen handed Barcelona the all-needed three points.
Barcelona was clearly the better of the two sides as they showed significant signs moving forward, but an adamant strong-willed Mallorca side made it difficult for the signs to perform wonders.
The Mallorca side had few chances upfront, but a certain Jaume Costa shot was denied by a quality save from Barcelona goalkeeper Andre Marc-Ter Stegen. In the dying moments of the game, a goal-scoring chance that almost saw the islander pick up a point at home, but Kang-In Lee shot went wide. Andre Marc- Ter Stegen has now recorded five clean sheets in a row.
Barcelona is now on a six-game winning streak in Laliga and top of the Laliga table with 19 points ahead of Real Madrid with one point, who still has a game in hand against Osasuna on Sunday. Barcelona manager Xavi broke Zidane’s (former Real Madrid Manager) record of the most games unbeaten away from home in the Laliga Santander with 18 unbeaten matches (13 wins and five draws) meanwhile Robert Lewandoski now has the record of the fastest player to score nine Laliga goals in the 21st century, needing just seven games to do it.
