Barcelona ensured they did not start 2008 by losing more ground on league leaders Real Madrid by picking up a vital 2-0 win over Mallorca.

Rafael Marquez gave Barca the lead in the second half when he converted a Xavi corner, before Cameroon striker Samuel Eto´o completed the win with a screaming 30-yard shot in injury time.

Having won all eight fixtures against Mallorca since the start of Frank Rijkaard´s reign at the club, and with the Catalan side sitting seven points adrift of Real Madrid after their 1-0 defeat in December´s Clasico, victory was both expected and essential for Barca in the Ono Estadi.
