Barca Hit Six Past Getafe

Barcelona shared the workload around as six different scorers helped them to a stunning 6-1 win over Getafe at Camp Nou.

Alexis Sanchez got the scoring underway only six minutes into the encounter before Lionel Messi grabbed a second not long afterward.

The hosts did not score again until after the interval as David Villa netted a first goal in three months.

Substitute Christian Tello put the result beyond any doubt with just over ten minutes to go and although Alvaro Vasquez there was more pain to come for Getafe.

Andres Iniesta got the fifth for the league leaders before Gerard Pique completed the rout.

It was a first league goal in ten months for Sanchez when he clipped the ball into the net following Iniesta’s sublime through ball.

After taking a sixth minute lead Barca pressed for a further goal and found it through Messi in the 13th minute as the Argentine slid home Thiago Alcantara's assist.

It was not until minutes before the hour mark that the net was rattled again, this time Villa finishing neatly under goalkeeper Jordi Codina from Jordi Alba's through pass.

Tello made an appearance off the bench ad got on the scoresheet as he collected Messi’s pass before firing home.

Spain Under-21 forward Vasquez profited from some sloppy defending from Alba as he got in behind the fullback to net an 83rd minute goal.

However, two stoppage time strikes gave the scoreline a rather humiliating complexion as Iniesta seized on a loose ball to score and Pique knocked the ball into an unguarded net for the sixth.
