Barcelona vs. Elche: Winners and Losers from La Liga Game
Manu Fernandez/Associated Press

Barcelona got their 2014-15 season off to a winning start with a 3-0 home triumph over Elche on Sunday night. Lionel Messi scored twice and young forward Munir added another in a routine win, though Barcelona ended up with 10 men for the entire second half.

It was a more than comfortable win for Barcelona as they dominated from start to finish, even with one man less.

Here, we take a look at the winners and the losers from the game, and we'll be focusing almost exclusively on Barcelona—not because they're the bigger side, but because Elche's game plan was clearly to come and simply not lose by five or six goals, offering little going the other way and contributing not much to the game as a whole.
