Remember that time we all thought Barcelona were in crisis? What were we thinking?
Just as everyone was starting to write the obituaries for tiki-taka football (for this season at least), the Catalans gave everyone a pretty emphatic reminder that talk of their demise is, and probably always will be, utter nonsense.
Deportivo La Coruna were the unlucky club in the eye of the storm as they were thumped 8-0 on their own patch. Luis Suarez scored four times and dished out three assists - not a bad night - as the growing belief the chasing Madrid clubs had in the Primera Division title race got a dose of reality.

Barca had lost four of their past five matches in a run that had seen them crash out of the Champions League and their La Liga lead disappear.
By Barca standards, that is a crisis - but you know what they say about champions and crisis.
Well, Barcelona had been saving that up a bit, hadn't they?

Barcelona's 8-0 win equals their biggest La Liga away win in team history.
They scored with 8 of their 9 shots on goal today.

Barcelona scoring the goals they should have scored in the last three games all in this game ?

Barcelona hit 8 goals today. That pretty much silenced the critics, like I said every team has its bad run.

Crisis club Barcelona just 8 in front... ???

Err looks like Barcelona had a point to prove tonight! 0-EIGHT! Seems the 'crisis' is over. Still wide open if Atleti and Real win though

It wasn't all good news for the Catalans, however, as Atletico Madrid did claim a 1-0 win from a tough trip to Athletic Bilbao to remain level with them on points at the top.
