Coliseum Alfonso Perez—Getafe, Spain

Getafe 2-5 Barcelona

Scorers: Escudero (11'), Lisandro (14'); Pedro (35', 41', 43'), Cesc (68', 72')


Barcelona beat Getafe 5-2 in an enthralling 90 minute display.

Woeful defending from the Calatan outfit allowed the hosts to pull two ahead in the first 15 minutes, but Barca struck back through a sensational Pedro hat-trick.

Cesc Fabregas crushed any hopes of a comeback late in the second half with a quick brace—both assisted by Pedro.
