Table of Contents
Barcelona moved back to the top of the La Liga standings with a 4-1 thrashing at Racing Santander.

Summer signing Zlatan Ibrahimović opened the scoring after 20 minutes before Lionel Messi doubled the advantage four minutes later.

Gerard Piqué effectively made the points safe with less than half an hour gone as he controled Ibrahimović's backheel from inside the area and calmly finished past exposed goalkeeper Toño.

Messi made it 4-0 with a his trademark goal, cutting in from the right flank, running across the edge of the penalty area and lashing a left-footed drive into the net.

Santander finally got on the scoreboard on 73 minutes when Óscar Serrano dribbled through the Barcelona defense and blasted a thunderous left-footed drive in off the post.
