La Liga: Getafe 1-4 Barcelona

[Sunday, September 16, 2012 ]

Lionel Messi came off the bench to help a short-handed Barcelona win 4-1 against Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

Barcelona made the breakthrough in the 32nd minute when Cesc Fàbregas carried the ball into the area, shed one defender and laid off for Adriano to score in his second straight game.

Messi was introduced just before the hour mark and scored a penalty in the 74th minute and the third goal four minutes later to decide the contest and take his league-leading tally to six.

A Javier Mascherano own goal robbed the visitors of a clean sheet, but David Villa rounded off the win in the closing moments.
