Barcelona continue to close off their league season, in faint hope of an upset at the top, with Getafe at home on Saturday.

The visitors will be looking to take advantage of any holiday legs at the Camp Nou and put yet more distance between themselves and the bottom three. They currently sit two points above the drop zone.

Pinto: Did nothing for a long stretch, then got beaten by Lafita. In the second half he pulled of a wonder save on Sarabia.

Adriano: Got forward extremely well down the left and gave Getafe problems.

Alves: Dominated the right on his own, got an assist for Messi. Everything ran through him.

Mascherano: Dealt well in defence and passed well from the back.

Bartra: Quietly solid.

Sergio: Saw plenty of the ball, wasn't called into action defensively too often.

Xavi: Recycled the ball well, his connection with Alves was as good as ever.

Pedro: Made one delightful run in behind the full-back. Did very well on the left.

Iniesta: Ran well with the ball on the left and created openings.

Alexis: Stretched the pitch well on the right, worked well with Alves. Scored a nicely-worked goal.

Messi: Scored a beautiful goal, but was relatively quiet overall.
