Barça's 8-goal output against Huesca is nothing new

After Barça beat Huesca 8-2 on Sunday at Camp Nou, many people's thoughts began to search for a precedent in which the Catalans lit up the scoreboard in a similar manner.

And the truth is, one need not go too far back in time to find a day when Barça bagged eight goals in a single game.

In 2014-15 season fixture 35 FC Barcelona visited the Cordoba's Estadio Nuevo Arcángel with the duty of winning their match to maintain their four points leading against Real Madrid in the last part of the campaign.

Rakitic (42), Luis Suárez (45', 53', 88'), Messi (46', 80'), Piqué (65') and Neymar (p., 85') gave Luis Enrique's side back then three important points to win LaLiga in a legendary year that eventually would bring the second club history treble (League, Cup, Champions League).

In 2015-16 LaLiga Round 34 Barça needed the three points in Riazor to keep their first place at the table with just five weeks to go. That day Luis Enrique's team wouldn't fail to get the target as Luis Suárez was impregnable in front of goal.

A poker of the Uruguayan (10', 23' 52', 63'), added to Rakitic (46'), Messi (72'), Bartra (78') and Neymar's (80') strikes gave the Blaugranes an astonishing victory at Deportivo La Coruña's feud. Catalans would eventually achieve their second league consecutive title by winning their four last fixtures besides the Riazor one.

In week four of the 2011/12 season, Barça, led by then-manager Pep Guardiola, netted eight goals at Camp Nou against Osasuna, while surrendering exactly zero.

Leo Messi led the way that day with three goals, while David Villa chipped in with a brace. Cesc Fàbregas and Xavi grabbed one each as well, while another came courtesy of an Osasuna own-goal.

One season before, Barça overwhelmed Almería at the Estadio de los Juegos del Mediterráneo with the goals of Messi (16', 36', 66'), Iniesta (18'), Acasiete (OG, 26'), Pedro (34') and Bojan (61', 72'). That was Barça's first 8-0 league away victory since 1959-60 season.
