Barcelona narrowly defeated Girona 1-0 to increase their advantage atop the La Liga standings to six points before Sunday's game against Real Madrid, who are now in second position.Barcelona just needed a Pedri goal in the second half, but it required some frantic defence in the closing 15 minutes as Girona sent players forward in quest of an equaliser.Barcelona was able to earn all three points thanks to a Ronald Araujo clearance near the goal line, two outstanding stops by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, and an egregious error by Girona's Ivan Martin.Without their top forward Robert Lewandowski, who was out playing the third game of a three-game suspension, Barcelona won their third consecutive encounter 1-0. Ansu Fati filled in for Ferran Torres, who was suspended for the Blaugrana, as the centre striker.On a chilly night in Girona, Barcelona's situation became much more complicated due to an injury to Ousmane Dembele in the first half. However, his substitute, Pedri, finished a trademark Barcelona passing move at the far post to give his club a lead they would not lose.Barcelona resumes a crucial three-games-in-eight-days period in La Liga action with a trip to Real Betis on Wednesday and a home game against Sevilla on Sunday. Lewandowski will be available for both games.

Barcelona struggles to win games.Barcelona has used it frequently this year. When they are in the lead, they struggle to maintain their offensive ferocity and ultimately allow the opposition to into the game. In the Copa del Rey quarterfinal on Wednesday against Real Sociedad, the identical scenario played out. Although Barcelona may be at the top of the standings and have only allowed six goals in 18 league games, you can't help but sense that they are still a fragile team.
