Big win against GetafeMarch 14, 2016
Barcelona made it another big win on Saturday afternoon when they thrashed Getafe 6-0 at the Nou Camp. And with Suarez on the bench for the entire match it means the Uruguayan will be completely fresh against Arsenal on Wednesday.
The opening goal came after just seven minutes and was deflected by Juan Rodríguez into his own net. It took another ten minutes before Munir made it 2-0, making up for Messi’s missed penalty kick. Iniesta passed to Messi, whose volley was headed home by Munir. And then just after the half hour mark Neymar made it 3-0, again off a Messi assist. Minutes later the Argentine got himself on the score sheet when he blasted the ball into the Getafe net from outside the penalty area. The match was already decided going into the break.
Four minutes into the second half Neymar scored his second of the afternoon, again assisted by Messi. Turan scored soon after when Munir and Pique kept the ball moving in the penalty area after a corner. The win is Barça’s 37th in a row without a loss. The club to beat them was Sevilla on 3rd October. Completely at the top of their game the Catalans are now almost certainly assured the Spanish League title and have a good chance at retaining the Champions League title too.
