Barcelona go back to the top of La Liga with a 3-0 win at home to Racing Santander.

Barcelona have moved back to the top of La Liga with a 3-0 win against Racing Santander at the Nou Camp.

Lionel Messi opened the scoring for the hosts after 11 minutes when he collected Andres Iniesta's pass before he rounded the keeper to tap in.

Barca's lead was doubled before the break after Xavi Hernandez headed in Pedro's floated cross.

The match was put out of Racing's reach on 68 minutes as Messi claimed his second of the match when he smashed in the rebound after Iniesta's shot had cannoned off the post.

Pep Guardiola's side are now one point clear of Real Madrid, who earlier beat Real Betis 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
