Barcelona moved five points clear at the top of the table after beating bottom club Xerez 0-2 on Wednesday night. The match was brought forward two weeks due to Barcelona's participation in the Club World Cup later this month, and Guardiola rested some of his key players after a tiring week.
The Andalusians put in a brave performance, although the visitors took the lead in the first minute of the second half when Henry headed in Maxwell's cross.
With Messi, Ibrahimovic and Iniesta on the park later in the second half though Barça upped the pressure, Messi hitting the post and Iniesta missing a sitter before Ibrahimovic ran on to Messi's through ball to lob in the second in injury time.
