A rare midday kick-off in Spain saw Barcelona continue their dominance in La Liga with a scarily comfortable 6-1 win over Getafe at the Nou Camp.
Goals for Alexis Sanchez, Lionel Messi, Andreas Iniesta (who was the undeniable man of the match, setting up both those former scorers), David Villa, Christian Tello and a late finish for Gerard Pique saw Barca home without too much trouble in the sunshine.
A second half consolation goal for Getafe from substitute Alvaro didn’t dampen any jubilation for the hosts, as they now move a whopping 12 points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid, who face Rayo Vallecano later on today. It was also another case for Barcelona that whatever Real Madrid can do, the Catalans can do better. Madrid, thanks to a hat trick from Cristiano Ronaldo and another from Karim Benzema saw the current La Liga Champions put Sevilla to the sword with a 4-1 victory on Saturday night, only for Tito Vilanova’s men to go two goals better at the Nou Camp.
