WATCH: Fermin Lopez doubles up as Barcelona give themselves breathing space against Almeria

Barcelona are well on course to all-but ensure that they will finish inside the top two in La Liga, as they have now gone 2-0 up against Almeria at the Power Horse stadium.

It was Fermin Lopez has scored the opener for the visitors, although it’s been a rather poor performance from Xavi Hernandez’s side, with Almeria having had several good chances to score themselves.

They’ve been made to pay for passing up those opportunities, as Fermin has grabbed his second goal of the game. Sergi Roberto’s cross found the young midfielder unmarked in the penalty box, and he made no mistake for 2-0.

That is Fermin’s seventh goal of the season in La Liga, and he has really been the bright spark for Barcelona in this match, having almost single-handedly dragged the, into a two-goal lead. If they can manage to see it out, they will be four points clear of Girona with two matches to be played.
