FC Barcelona 5 Osasuna 1

28 Jan

Four more goals from the unstoppable Leo Messi and another from Pedro Rodriguez earned Barça a 5-1 victory over Osasuna at Camp Nou tonight. The four-time Ballon d’Or winner put Barça in front early on before Raoul Loé fired in an equalizer after 23 minutes. Osasuna were reduced to ten men soon after when Alejandro Arribas was dismissed after two separate handballs. The second incident also won Barça a penalty which Messi hammered home, and from then in it was all too easy as Pedro, Messi and Messi again finished the job to put Barça eleven points clear at the top of La Liga after Atlético’s defeat at San Mames.With an eye on Wednesday’s cup clásico, Jordi Roura made five changes to the team that won at Malaga in the quarter finals. Victor Valdés returned in goal for his first game at Camp Nou since his announcement that he won’t renew his contract – the crowd’s reaction to Valdés was generally positive. Adriano and Puyol came in for Jordi Alba and Piqué in defence, Thiago replaced Fabregas in midfield while up front we played with David Villa on the left instead of Andrés Iniesta.
