Almeria 0-2 Barcelona

Barcelona won LaLiga last season and were crowned champions for the first time since 2019

Barcelona have strengthened their grip on second place in La Liga thanks to a 2-0 win over already relegated Almeria on Thursday night.

Xavi’s side had been soundly beaten by Girona at the start of the month but have now won back-to-back games since, coupled with their Catalan neighbours suffering something of a mini collapse. All in all, it means the gap back to third-place Girona is now four points with two games left.

Fermin Lopez scored both goals, one in either half, to underline his growing importance.
