One of the best wins of the season was witnessed by a lot of people at Camp Nou, as 87,151 people went to Barcelona's stadium to watch the 6-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano that put the Blaugrana back to the top of La Liga. The crowd was different from usual: lots of kids just enjoying the experience, daytime fans and happy people that just went there to have some fun.

And man, did they have fun! A footballing concert for the ages, featuring a hat-trick from Lionel Messi, a brace from Luis Suárez and a Gerard Piqué goal, gave Barça the keys of the empire to reclaim the Spanish League title. Sunday's crowd was only the fourth one to break the 80-thousand barrier at Camp Nou this season.

Biggest Camp Nou Attendances

vs Rayo Vallecano (La Liga) - 87,151

vs Paris Saint-Germain (UEFA Champions League) - 82,570

vs Atlético Madrid (La Liga) - 81,658

vs Athletic Bilbao (La Liga) - 80,181

If Sunday's performance gets the crowd excited to come back, it's possible that we see 90,000-plus fans packing the Camp Nou against Manchester City, in a giant Champions League game that happens in 10 days.
