Barca and Juve keep records intact

Updated: September 23, 2012

Barcelona continued their 100 per cent start to the season with a 2-0 victory over Granada at the Nou Camp on Saturday evening, but a disciplined performance by the visiting team ensured they had to work harder than expected for the points.

The visitors maintained the deadlock until the 87th minute, when Xavi finally broke their resistance with a magnificent strike from the edge of the box, before an injury time own goal by the luckless Borja Gomez added further gloss to the scoreline.

A thumping header from Paulao put Real Betis up to third spot in La Liga as they beat misfiring Espanyol 1-0 at home.

Zaragoza beat last-place Osasuna 3-1 at home on Saturday, keeping the struggling Pamplona-based side winless after five rounds of the Spanish league.

In Italy, two second-half goals from Fabio Quagliarella, including a stunning scissor-kick strike, gave Juventus a 2-0 win over Chievo Verona as they moved three points clear at the top of Serie A with a perfect record.
