Barcelona continued their impressive start to the La Liga season with but another routine victory at the Camp Nou over 11th-placed Zaragoza.

The victory takes Tito Vilanova's men to 34 points at the top of the table, reflective of an incredible record start of 11 victories and a draw from their opening 12 fixtures.

Lionel Messi continued his record-breaking scoring run delightfully by finishing off a move in the sixteenth minute to put Barca ahead early, but Zaragoza struck back quickly through Paco Montañes. Indeed, the Aragonese were to put up an excellent fight all night long, defending well and threatening in attack.

Messi, however, would weave more magic and set up Alex Song for his maiden goal in the blue and claret, before scoring himself with a long-range effort in the second half.

Importantly, Carles Puyol started his first game in more than a month, characteristically returning early from that horrific arm injury sustained against Benfica.

The likes of Song, Montoya and Bartra also played valuable minutes as they seek to further impress their new boss.
