Memphis Depay opened the scoring before Sergio Busquets doubled the lead in the second half, but Antonio Raillo goal was too late for the visitors to fight back as Barcelona held on to a nervy finish.

But, the greatest relief was Ansu Fati who made his first Barcelona appearance after three and half months.

Fati arrived in the 77th minute for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and received a very warm welcome from the Camp Nou crowd.

The 19-year-old’s senior career has been blighted by injuries and has managed just a handful of appearances this season. He has only played ten games this season, but has had five goals to his name.

It was a good night all round for Barcelona who are now two points ahead of Sevilla in third and five above Atletico Madrid in fourth.

If they beat fifth-placed Betis next weekend Champions League football next season will be all but assured.
