Basle 0-5 Barcelona Highlights

Barcelona made it three wins out of three in Champions League Group C as they brushed aside Basle 5-0 in Switzerland.

0-1 L.Messi 4′

0-2 S.Busquets 15′

0-3 B.Krkić Pérez 22′

0-4 B.Krkić Pérez 46′

0-5 Xavi 48′

Goals from Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Bojan Krkic (two) and Xavi Hernandez saw the Catalans run up the joint highest away win in Champions League history, while Bojan, Carles Puyol and Thierry Henry all missed chances to add to the tally.

Basle goalkeeper Franco Costanzo promised his side would go out to inflict a first defeat of the Champions League season on Barca, but within four minutes he was picking the ball out of the net and his team were left facing an uphill task.

Dani Alves lifted the ball over the Basle defence who stood motionless as Messi rushed onto the pass and finished with a simple-looking first-time shot off his left foot.
