Iñaki Alonso was right. The 5 and 6 nil thrashings are Barcelona’s thing. Those expecting a high score will have disappointed, but Álcala were always going to defend in numbers and make it difficult, and they did it quite well until Real Murcia unlocked them a few minutes from half time. After that the result was never in doubt, and Alberto’s goal wasn’t threatened. Positive points…Kike is looking sharp in front of goal and is on a good run, and Dani Aquino had a very good game, playing a bit further back, and looks to be recovering the form that made him one of the best young players in Spain – let’s hope he can stay injury free, as a succession of niggling knocks and strains have blighted him.

Referee: Mr. Cuesta Ferreiro. Mostly unnoticed, but gave a few strange decisions, such as a booking for Ivan Amaya when he made a fine tackle.
