Barcelona Ease Past 10-Man Eibar, Set Club Record

Barcelona returned to winning ways in the Spanish Laliga after defeating 10-man Eibar 2-0 away on Saturday.

The Spanish giants drew their last two league games against Espanyol (1-1) and Getafe (0-0).

The win against Eibar means Barcelona have equalled their run of 31 league games without defeat set back in 2010/2011 under Pep Guardiola.

Barca opened the scoring through Luis Suarez in the 16th minute from a Lionel Messi assist.

In the 66th minute, Eibar were reduced to 10 men as Fabian Orellana was shown his second yellow card.

And with two minutes left in the game, Jordi Alba made the game safe by making it 2-0.

Barcelona remain top on 62 points in the league table as they have now temporarily gone 10 points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid who host Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

The Catalans  are still unbeaten in the league this season after 24 games played.
