Almeria 0-8 Barcelona: Lionel Messi Hat-Trick Inspires Barca To Equal Record Away Win

Barcelona showed they have hit top form ahead of next week's El Clasico with a superb 8-0 victory over struggling Almeria at the Estadio del Mediterraneo. The win equals Barcelona's biggest away victory in the league, an 8-0 demolition of Las Palmas in 1959.

A Lionel Messi hat-trick, brace from substitute Bojan Krkic plus goals from Andres Iniesta, Pedro and a Santi Acasiete own-goal took Barcelona top of La Liga although Real Madrid will return to the summit with victory over Atletic Bilbao in tonight's late kick-off.
