Barcelona star Andres Iniesta was happy with his side’s 2-0 derby win at Espanyol as he insists winning is all that matters at this stage of the season.

Neymar and Lionel Messi grabbed the goals as Barcelona maintained their push for La Liga glory, while Jordi Alba was dismissed early in the second half for the visitors.

Midfielder Iniesta concedes it was far from a vintage display by the Camp Nou outfit but the playmaker insists results are more important that performances as Barcelona chase silverware on three fronts.

Luis Enrique’s side are the current La Liga leaders and they face Athletic Bilbao in the final of the Copa del Rey.

Barcelona are also hunting a first Champions League title since 2011 as they face Bayern Munich in the semi-finals, and Iniesta feels every game is a “cup final” as they continue their treble bid.

“This represents another step to the title, but we have to look at the games we still have left,” he told Canal Plus. “All the games we have left now are cup finals. To win La Liga, we really need to win every match left.”

Barcelona are back in La Liga action on Tuesday when they host Getafe.

The Catalan giants are heavy 1.04 favourites to come out on top, with a draw on offer at 12.00 while Getafe are on offer at 34.00 to shock the league leaders and take all three points.
