Claudio Bravo 6
No big saves to make but did what little he needed to. One slip up from a corner was cleared by Pique.
Dani Alves 4
A game to forget for the fullback. Bad in attack, giving a lot of balls away.
Gerard Pique 5
The centre-back found it hard to bring the ball out because of the poor state of the pitch. Found life tough when asked to defend corners.
Javier Mascherano 5
His attitude was strong, fighting until the game, but had little else to offer. Scrapped with Alvaro.
Jordi Alba 5
Started badly, withouth ever taking control of his flank, had a lot of doubts on the ball. After the break he improved, but never seemed comfortable.
Sergio Busquets 6
Adapted to the bad pitch, but got tired of fighting on his own to break up Espanyol attacks.
Ivan Rakitic 5
This was not his game. Without ideas or solutions in midfield. Neither did he try to shoot. He was Luis Enrique’s only substituted player.
Lionel Messi 6
Continued his bad luck with the woodwork, striking it with a free kick. Not at his best and could not help the team.
Luis Suarez 6
Did not adapt to the bad conditions on the pitch. Could have scored one of the most magical goals of the season but hit the post.
The most creative Barcelona player in attack. A spectacular semi-overhead kick was saved by Pau.
Sergi Roberto 6
The only man brought on by Luis Enrique to play as right interior. Espanyol did not make things easy for him.
