Athletic Bilbao 0 – 1 Barcelona – Barcelona manager Luis Enrique recorded his 100th win as Barcelona manager in a 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Barcelona earned the win courtesy a header from Ivan Rakitic, who connected perfectly with a cross from Arda Turan in the 21st minute.

Barcelona held on for the win, and sit at the top of the table with rival Real Madrid and Las Palmas.

It was a frustrating night for Barcelona’s attacking players, with Luis Suarez, Denis Suarez and Arda Turan all missing chances to increase Barcelona’s lead.

Following the sale of Claudio Bravo to Manchester City, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen seems to be Barcelona’s first choice keeper now, but was largely a bystander as Barcelona dominated possession of the ball.
