Barcelona 5 – Almeria 0 (La Liga, October 25, 2008) Barca produced another awesome first-half display. Samuel Eto’o volleyed home the first, Thierry Henry bagged the second and Eto’o tapped home the third and the Cameroonian striker completed his hat-trick in the 24th minute, backheeling in after great work by Messi. Daniel Alves scored the fifth with a long-range free-kick just before the break.
