For all their dominance, possession and chances, Xavi Hernandez's Barcelona find a way through stubborn Almeria backline, as they're condemned to a 1-0 defeat at the Power Horse Stadium.
Toure's first-half piledriver proves to be enough to secure all three points for the struggling side, as Barca miss the chance to go 10 points clear at the top.
