Barcelona vs. Deportivo La Coruna: La Liga Live Score, Highlights, Recap

Tom SunderlandFeatured ColumnistMarch 8, 2013

Barcelona 2-0 Deportivo La Coruna, Camp Nou, Full Time

Deportivo La Coruna started brightly at the Camp Nou but a weakened Barcelona side proved enough to overcome the side currently residing at the bottom of La Liga, despite leaving it late to wrap up the victory.

The Blaugrana failed to get up to speed after taking the lead through Alexis Sanchez eight minutes before halftime but Lionel Messi scored in his 17th consecutive league fixture after coming on in the second period.

While the three points might be theirs, Barca will be disappointed not to have put in a more assured performance against a side so low in the Spanish top flight but attentions will now turn to Tuesday's epic encounter with AC Milan.

Scorers: Sanchez (37'), Messi (89')
