Barcelona continued to set the pace at the top of the Primera Division with a 2-1 win over Deportivo La Coruna at the Nou Camp on Saturday.
Frank Rijkaard's men had to come from behind after Fran Gonzalez gave the visitors the lead early on.
Xavi Hernandez levelled the scores mid-way through the first-half and Samuel Eto'o netted to put Barca in the driving seat before half-time.
They held that advantage and now lead the Primera Liga by nine points although that gap will probably be reduced by the end of the weekend.
The only blemish on the evening for the Catalan giants was the fact that Barca's injury crisis could be worsened with the early signs not good for
Juliano Belletti who had to be carried off the pitch with a leg injury late on.
In Saturday night's other top-flight match, Albacete and Real Betis claimed a point apiece after a goalless draw.
