Osasuna shocked and awed by Barça

April 27, 2017

After Sunday’s confidence boosting win against Real Madrid, Barcelona wowed Camp Nou last night with a 7-1 victory against Osasuna. Messi scored the opener after just 12 minutes, with André Gomes making it 2-0 at the half hour mark.

After the break it took seven minutes before the visitors clawed a goal back when Torres put the ball past Ter Stegen. But less than ten minutes later the floodgates opened. Gomes scored his second of the night three minutes before the hour, with Messi scoring his second four minutes later.

The Camp Nou faithful had just three minutes to wait for the next goal, scored by Alcácer, and then another three for Mascherano to score from the penalty spot. It was his first goal for Barça. That’s four goals in 11 minutes. But even then Barcelona hadn’t finished. Alcácer scored his second minutes before the end of the final whistle.

1-0 Messi (min 12)
2-0 André Gomes (min 30)
2-1 Torres (min 48)
3-1 André Gomes (min 57)
4-1 Messi (min 61)
5-1 Alcácer (min 64)
6-1 Mascherano (min 67)
7-1 Alcácer (min 86)

With Madrid beating Deportivo 6-2 later in the evening the two teams are neck and neck at the top of the league. Madrid still has a game in hand though and Barcelona desperately needs the arch-rival to stumble before the season is up.
