Barcelona will remain La Liga leaders for a few more days after a comfortable 7-1 win over Osasuna at Camp Nou. The Blaugrana played very good football against the worst team is Spain, and easily found a lot of goals to take three points and make the fans happy.
The first half was controlled by Barça, who played slow and didn't need to push the pace too much to find spaces in the Osasuna defense. When they didn't have the ball, Barça pressed high up the pitch, and that was how Lionel Messi stole a ball and found himself in front of the goalkeeper, who was beaten by a magical chip from the Barça captain. 20 minutes later, Barça found the second when Ivan Rakitic's cross found André Gomes, who scored a very good volley to double Barça's lead.
At halftime, the hosts were having a very easy game and built a comfortable lead. The second half was about finishing the job.
The second half started with a great free kick from Roberto Torres, which brought some danger to Barça's comfortable win. Less than 15 minutes later, André Gomes, Messi and Paco Alcácer had already scored, and the hosts had a 5-1 lead to end the game for good.
The goals kept coming, and we saw a historic moment: after Denis Suarez won a penalty, Javier Mascherano stepped up and scored his first ever goal for Barcelona with the spot kick. With five minutes to go, Paco Alcácer rounded the keeper and scored his second of the game.
The game was done, so Barça ran out the clock and celebrated a very good victory.
