- Barcelona beat Mallorca 1-0
- Lewandowski strike the difference
- Blaugrana seven unbeaten and top of league
WHAT HAPPENED? The Poland striker scored the only goal of the game as Barcelona continued their imperious form at the start of the season. The Catalonian outfit are unbeaten in seven league games as they look to challenge Real Madrid for the title this season.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Blaugrana are temporarily top of La Liga, as bitter rivals Real play on Sunday. Los Blancos have won every game in the league so far and a win would take them back on top, but Xavi and his men can take pride in knowing they are keeping pace right now.
ALL EYES ON: Lewandowski now has nine goals in nine games this season. The striker was somewhat under the spotlight after forcing a move from German giants Bayern in the summer, but has excelled in Spain and is looking like one of the signings of the summer.
