Barca Ease Past Espanyol

Barcelona stayed on course to equal the La Liga points tally record when they beat Espanyol 2-0 at the Estadi Cornella-El Prat on Sunday.

Alexis Sanchez netted a sublime goal in the 15th minute for the Catalans before Pedro wrapped up the result late on.

Barca were largely in control in the game and had a comfortable finish to the game after Espanyol had Wakaso Mubarak sent off.

A victory for Barca in their final game of the season, against Malaga next Saturday, would be enough to see them to 100 points - equalling the record currently held by Real Madrid.

After a difficult campaign, Sanchez showed his ability with a stunning goal where he skipped past two tackles before curling a sublime finish past the goalkeeper.

Cesc Fabregas then struck the post after running onto a pass from Alex Song while Andres Iniesta saw his powerful strike sail past the post.

The game slowed after the break as neither side managed to reach top gear but the dismissal of Wakaso for protesting a booking opened the game up.

Xavi and Pedro then completed the win when Xavi lifted the ball into Pedro's path and he flicked a superb finish home to kill off the game.
