Yannick Carrasco’s first-half goal was enough to secure all three points for Diego Simeone’s hosts, in his first-ever La Liga win over the Catalans, as the Belgian international benefitted from a huge error from Marc Ter Stegen.

Gerard Pique gifted possession to Koke and the Spaniard sent Carrasco behind the La Blaugrana defence, but Ter Stegen’s attempted clearance failed, and Carrasco latched onto the loose ball to slot into an empty net from 40 yards.
