Andreas Iniesta made it three goals for Barcelona after scoring in the final minute against Santander. And that gulf is class was in evidence when Andres Iniesta fired Barcelona 3-0 up. David Villa dribbled into the area and waited for Pedros run to roll a ball across the face of the box. Pedro then produced an incredible back flick to waiting Iniesta, who rocketed in a shot that took a deflection as it shot past Toño in the Racing goal. Champagne football from Barca.

Must be so disheartening for teams that visit the Camp Nou, Barcelona don’t even need to play especially well but they can still stick four or five past most teams without ever having to move out of second gear. Gerard Pique came on at half time to replace Carlos Puyol who had a problem in his right knee, but the defender has had little to do since the initial Racing pressure at the start of the half.
