Barcelona scraped a 1-0 victory over Girona at the Estadi Montilivi to take their point tally to 47 points from 18 matches. The La Liga table-toppers were nowhere near their best as they somehow managed to cling to their slender lead. The hosts, on the other hand, started the game on the right foot and maintained a good percentage of possession as well. To add to Barcelona’s worries, they lost Ousmane Dembele to an injury in the first half and had to bring on Pedri, who scored the only goal of the game. Girona threatened a comeback and exposed Barcelona’s vulnerability in clutch situations as they almost scored in the final minutes.
