Great result for Barcelona as they stay unbeaten and in first place.

The game was tight through the first hour, but the introduction of Messi and then Villa made Barcelona almost unbeatable.

Carles Puyol suffered a knee injury and his status will be watched very closely.

Keep an eye out for a match review later tonight.
