Barcelona take control of Group D with narrow win over Sporting Lisbon

Barcelona take control of Group D with narrow win over Sporting Lisbon”

Barcelona maintain their 100 per cent record this season after they secured a 1-0 win away at Sporting.

Sebastian Coates scored an own goal in the 49th minute giving the Catalans the lead following a Messi free-kick that bounced off the defender, with Suarez also getting the touch, in the six-yard box and into the back of the net, 0-1.

La Liga leaders Barcelona travel to Portugal on Wednesday to face Sporting CP in a Champions League group-stage match.

After 40 minutes Ernesto Valverde's troops were having the lion's share of possession but could not penetrate Sporting while playing narrow, with Lionel Messi sitting just behind Luis Suarez.

The home side rarely troubled Barca but had a wonderful opportunity to equalise when Bruno Fernandes' shot was well saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Barcelona soon regained an element of control over the game, though, and they could have finally put it to bed with four minutes remaining when a Coates error allowed Ivan Rakitic to play the ball through to Paulinho, who was denied by a good stop from Patricio.

There are totally 8 groups in the UEFA Champions League.
