Pedro Hat-Trick Sinks Getafe

Barcelona came from two goals down to outclass Getafe 5-2 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in Sunday’s La Liga matchup after a superb hat-trick by Pedro.

Getafe made a strong start to the game and produced the first chance of the game when Ciprian let fly in the second minute, forcing a good save out of Pinto in the Barca goal.

Centre back Gerard Pique then should have opened the scoring for the Spanish champions when smashed a loose ball in the box straight at Getafe goalkeeper Moya from close range.

Getafe though went on to open the scoring with just over 10 minutes showing on the clock when Sergio Escudero latched on to Lafita's clever backheel pass and slot past Pinto.

Luis García Plaza’s men then doubled their lead less than five minutes later as Lisandro Lopez powered a header past Pinto to make it 2-0 and shock the Catalan giants.

Pedro then thought he had pulled a goal back until the linesman flagged for offside with 20 inutes played.

The Spanish international did however score on the half-hour mark as he lobbed Moya after being fed by Fabregas.

Pedro scored his second of the game five minutes before the half-time break with a wonderful long range strike that flew into the top corner and make it 2-2.

 The forward then completed the comeback and gave Barcelona the lead in the 43rd minute when he pounced on a defensive mistake before completing his hat-trick in 10 minutes.

Gerardo Martino’s men were not done yet and Cesc Fabregas rounded off the victory with a 68th minute volley after a Pedro cross and then a penalty in the 74th minute to make it 5-2.
