FC Barcelona beat Córdoba 5-0 in the last match of 2014. Coincidentally, it was a repeat of the last time the Andalusians visited Camp Nou in the return leg of the round of 16 in the 2012/13 Spanish Cup. Let's take a quick peek at Saturday's game, by the numbers.
In fact, Barça hadn't won 5-0 at Camp Nou since week 30 in the 2012/13 season when they beat Mallorca. They have won 5-0 once this season, but it was at Levante.
Gerard Piqué scored his third goal of the season. The other two came against Apoel in the Champions League and Espanyol in La Liga.
Luis Suárez scored his first league goal. He has scored two in the Champions League.
Leo Messi has 15 goals in 16 league games this season, tops on the team.
Another player on a hot streak is Pedro Rodríguez, who scored a hat trick on Tuesday versus Huesca and then scored in the first minute on Saturday.
Sergio Busquets was the team's catalyst, with 128 passes, 118 of which were on target. He was also the only Barça player to receive a yellow card.
Martín Montoya hadn't started two straight games since the first two matches of 2014.
Andrés Iniesta hadn't started two consecutive games since coming back from injury. The last time he did was when he started against Eibar and Real Madrid.
