Messi claims 2 but Iniesta stars with a goal & 3 assists as Barcelona hit Levante for 4

Levante 0 – Barcelona 4 (La Liga, November 25, 2012) (Alternative highlights & Longer highlights.) After a goalless first half, it took Lionel Messi just one minute in the second period to chip Barcelona in front. Five minutes later it was 2-0 as Lionel Messi scored his second from a cut back by Iniesta. And it was game over when Andres Iniesta crashed one in off the bar. Cesc Fabregas claimed number four, from another Iniesta assist for 4 goals in 16 minutes. Late on Victor Valdes saved a Levante penalty to seal a fine individual performance, despite the scoreline.

Nuts! Juanlu on Gerard Pique.
