Barca batter Santos to win Gamper

Barcelona thrashed Santos 8-0 at Camp Nou on Friday evening to claim the Gamper Trophy.

Gerardo Martino named a strong starting XI against the Brazilian side, welcoming back Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Sergio Busquets following the Confederations Cup.

And it didn’t take long for the Catalans to open the scoring, with Lionel Messi striking home after just eight minutes.

An own goal from Leo and finishes from Alexis Sanchez and Pedro made it 4-0 at half-time.

After the break, a double from Cesc Fabregas sealed the victory, before late goals from Adriano and Jean-Marie Dongou completed the rout.
