Girona v FC Barcelona 23 September 2017

Barca kept their 100 per cent LaLiga start, and opened up a four-point gap at the top, with Atletico Madrid moving into second place with a 2-0 win over Sevilla.

The Catalan giants have been in sensational form of late with Argentina worldwide Lionel Messi pulling the strings, but he, watched closely by Manchester City loanee Pablo Maffeo, couldn't get in on the act and wasn't even involved in any of the goals.

Barca eventually took the lead in the 17th minute when Jordi Alba's long-range strike hit Girona's Aday and sailed into the net for the own goal. "It's a derby, a great atmosphere and we needed to play with our heads as well as our hearts. Maybe we struggled to finish the game off, but we've got the win". "I'll do that when things aren't going well".
