Deco's ninth minute goal gave Barcelona a narrow 1-0 victory over city rivals Espanyol on Saturday, to keep the Catalan side clear at the top of Spain's Primera Liga. The match was marred by an outbreak of trouble in the stands involving Espanyol fans, who broke seats and hurled them toward the field, leading to a police charge. Barca, who are still unbeaten so far this season, are now five points clear of Valencia in second. They host third-placed Sevilla on Sunday. (AP)
