Barça are a point ahead of their great rivals Madrid ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Milan against Inter in the Champions League.

The Catalans scored through the inevitable Robert Lewandowski (20), author of a new personal effort and his ninth La Liga goal of the season.

Xavi’s side now have six straight league wins, four of them away, after a first draw in the season opener against Rayo Vallecano at the Camp Nou (0-0).

Mallorca remains in tenth place.
