Brugué put Espanyol ahead after just six minutes but Barça did not let their heads drop, as they managed to overturn the deficit before half-time. Goals from Mboula and Lee flipped the game on its head going into the break before the former got his brace just before the hour mark.

The game was wrapped up on 64 minutes through Abel Ruiz’s strike, handing Gabri Garcia’s boys a convincing win over their neighbours and helping them stay top of the league.
