Barcelona are back to winning ways at home after the 2-1 win over Real Mallorca. The Catalan giants have had a recent poor record at the Nou Camp before the Mallorca game. Barcelona had lost their last three games at home in all competitions before the visit of Real Mallorca last weekend.
Xavi Hernandez and his Barcelona players were heavy favourites to win the Europa League title, but they could not fulfil the status after they were beaten at home by German Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt at the start of the poor run at home. The Catalans were beaten 3-2 at home by 10-man Frankfurt for a 4-3 aggregate defeat after the first leg in Frankfurt ended in a 1-1 draw.
Barcelona made it two straight home defeats after the 1-0 defeat suffered at the Nou Camp at the hands of Cadiz with Lucas Perez netting the only goal of the game in the second half. After the two defeats to Frankfurt and Cadiz, Barcelona returned to winning ways by beating Real Sociedad 1-0 away from home courtesy the early goal from new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Five-time European champions Barcelona returned to the Nou Camp and the result remained the same after they were beaten 1-0 at home by Rayo Vallecano with Alvaro Garcia getting the only goal of the game as early as the seventh minute. Barcelona had a lot of time to react to the goal from Garcia, but they could not get back into the game until the fulltime whistle.
For the Mallorca game, Dutchman Memphis Depay was one of the two goalscorers for Barcelona. He scored the only goal of the game in the first half before the lead was doubled by skipper Sergio Busquets. Mallorca pulled one back in the second half, but they could not secure a point from the game.
