Barcelona 6 -1 Atletico Madrid


Barcelona 6 -1 Atletico Madrid

Everybody was waiting for the second game of the evening between Barcelona and Atlético Madrid, a fixture which has a reputation for goals. Nobody imagined however that there would be six in the first half hour as Pep Guardiola's side ran out 6-1 winners in the end.

Within eight minutes Barça were three up, a Márquez header from Xavi's corner, an Eto'o penalty after Ujfalusi fouled Messi, and a quickly taken Messi free kick which left the defence motionless. Maxi fired one back, but Eto'o and Gudjohnsen got two more within minutes. And Henry rounded things off with a sixth goal after the break to give his side their second "set" of the season.
