Rayo Vallecano 0 – Barcelona 7 (La Liga, April 29, 2012) (Alternative highlights & Longer highlights.) Lionel Messi ended his goal drought of three games without a goal by notching the opener at Rayo, thanks to good work from Sanchez & Pedro. On 26, 10 minutes after the opener, it was 2-0, Robert Correa diverting in an effort from Alexis Sanchez. It was 3-0 before the break as Lionel Messi embarked on a jinking run and played a genius ball in for Seydou Keita to convert. After the break Pedro made it 4-0 after Messi had hit the bar. Thiago Alcantara claimed the fifth and promptly got told off by Carles Puyol for doing a funny dance with Dani Alves. On 87 Pedro bagged the sixth from another Messi assist. Two minutes later Lionel Messi scored his second of the night and 70th in all competitions for the season.
Ball boys great control (Rayo Vallecano-Barcelona).
