Barcelona took the three points against a combative Rayo Vallecano thanks to the goals from Messi and David Villa, that allowed them to keep the distance of thirteen points with Real Madrid, second runner-up.
David, ‘Guaje’ , Villa scored the first goal of the match by a pass from Messi, who shortly after, took advantage of two assists of the Asturian to sentence the game and also to get closer to a new record. Lionel Messi with 18 consecutive games scoring, is a goal away from from scoring all the teams of the Spanish Soccer League in a row, something that has never happend before.
The combination Villa-Messi returns to be as fearsome as in 2009 which permits the Catalans to dream with the Spanish League and the Champions League. Raúl Tamudo left his stamp in the Camp Nou, the first ball he touched was turned into a goal.
