How Barcelona pipped Bilbao

Sports Brief reported that a first half strike by Raphinha lifted the Catalan giants to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bilbao to go nine points clear

The home side enjoyed the better of the play in the first half, forcing two strong saves from Barcelona's safest pair of hands inside the first half.

Bilbao also rattled the bar from a Raul Garcia header but Barcelona broke the deadlock before half-time, with Raphinha firing into the far corner from the right corner of the box.

Gavi's brave tackle

Elsewhere, Barcelona youngster Gavi has been spotted going into a tackle with his head during his side's La Liga tie against Athletico Bilbao.

The league leaders travelled to San Mamés to lock horns against Bilbao in their Spanish Primera Division encounter on Sunday night, Sports Brief had earlier reported.

La Blaugrana went into the game six points clear of fierce rivals Real Madrid at the top of the table.
