Xavi begins Barca tenure as coach with win

New Barcelona coach, Xavi Hernandez has begun his tenure with a 1-0 victory over city rivals, Espanyol at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona got the slim victory courtesy of Memphis Depay from the spot-kick.

Although the home fans were able to claim bragging rights over their city rivals, the visitors could easily have won the game having wasted numerous chances in the second half.

Xavi eventually saw his side take the lead seconds after the restart through a Memphis Depay penalty.

The win puts Barca sixth in the table.

More to come.
