Spanish and Italian Football Weekend

Spanish and Italian Football Weekend

La Liga

Barcelona earned a thrilling 5-4 win against RC Deportivo La Coruña. Jordi Alba, Cristian Tello and Lionel Messi made it 3-0 within 20 minutes from start before Pizzi converted a penalty and Alex Bergantinos reduced the deficit making it 3-2. Shortly before the break Messi doubled the lead and Pizzi netted on 47th minute. Barcelona’s mascot made it 5-3 scoring his 21st hat-trick for his team. The game got even more impressive when Jordi Alba drove an own goal past Víctor Valdés and despite one-goal lead Barca earned their three points.
