Barcelona extended their unbeaten start to the season with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

Lionel Messi narrowly missed opening the scoring in the early stages of the match before finally breaking the deadlock in the 36th minute. Bilbao were the dominant of the two sides thereafter, but without much of an end product.

Barcelona, though, went on to grab the second goal in the match when Paulinho tapped the ball into an empty net in the dying moments of the match. And the Brazilian was hailed by Barcelona fans for another impressive performance.

Lionel Messi was the toast of the Barcelona fanbase once again as he continued his fine early season form with his 16th goal of the season.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen was lauded by Barcelona supporters for playing a major role in earning the win for his side as well.
