Barcelona beats Elche on Saturday

1Barcelona are having their way with Elche on Saturday, after their rivals Real Madrid struggled through a clash with Cordoba that saw Cristiano Ronaldo get sent off with a red card.

Thanks to goals from some of their biggest names, like Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi and Neymar, Barcelona took a 3-0 lead. Late int he second half, Neymar scored his second goal of the game to extend the lead to a dominant 4-0, and this was no routine goal.

Barcelona’s first goal scored by Pique in the 35 minute from an astute move by Xavi, changed the game completely. From that point on, Barca were able to build on that lead comfortably. The many goals that followed were a clear reflection of the vast difference in terms of budget and quality between both clubs.

The Catalan club’s third consecutive victory in the domestic league helps them keep the pressure firmly on current leaders Real Madrid. While the difference is still one point despite Los Blancos having played one fewer game, Barcelona’s fans hope that their team’s current streak will help them climb to the top of the table sooner rather than later.
