Bojan heads home the opener
Barcelona began the defence of their La Liga title with a 3-0 win over Sporting Gijon at Camp Nou.
Goals from Bojan Krkic, Seydou Keita and new boy Zlatan Ibrahimovic were enough to give Pep Guardiola's men a comfortable win.
Krkic fired Barcelona in front after 18 minutes when he headed home Keita's flick-on from close-range.
Keita grabbed the second three minutes before the break when he rose highest to head home Dani Alves' inviting cross.
Ibrahimovic marked his league debut with a goal eight minutes from time when heading home at the back post to seal a good evening's work for the reigning champions.
