Memphis Depay scores the first goal for Barcelona.

Three penalty kick goals!

At the Estati Johan Cruyff, Barcelona defeated Girona 3-1. Memphis Depay came on as a substitute and netted from the spot.

Gerard Pique, Samu Saiz and Rey Manaj all scored on penalties in the first half.

Girona had the first big chance, as Cristhian Stuani spun around Gerard Pique and provoked a save, before Alejandro Balde blocked the rebound.

It was 10 minutes later that Pique was able to score his first goal from the penalty spot, even though his effort was saved by Juan Carlos before being turned in by Juan Carlos's unfortunate hand.

Few minutes later, Girona's No.1 had more bad luck when a Rey Manaj shot bounced off his legs and into the net.

Before half-time, Barcelona conceded a penalty to Sami Saiz after Sergi Roberto had turned the ball into the net from an offside position.

Memphis came on straight away, and his first touch for Barcelona was the resulting kick-off from the Barcelona defence. Juan Carlos made a good save from the Dutchman shortly after the restart and he also made another block.

Miralem Pjanic hit the crossbar with a free-kick and Antoine Griezmann impressed inside the area after the Blaugrana made eight substitutions in quick succession on the hour mark. Memphis took advantage of a late penalty, which he converted to score his first goal in Barcelona colors and round off a 3-1 victory for Barcelona.
