Pedro & Messi (2) secure another Barcelona win at Hercules

Hercules 0 – Barcelona 3 (La Liga, January 29, 2011) Hercules did not roll over in the opening minutes like most Spanish teams seem to have done against Barca of late and it took Pep Guardiola’s side until just before the break to open the scoring. Xavi played in Pedro who finished with aplomb – his 11th of the season. After Farinos was sent off on 85, Barcelona put some gloss on the scoreline. Lionel Messi knocked in the second off the post after beating a couple of Hercules defenders and then Lionel Messi tapped home after fine build-up play from Iniesta and Alves.
