Valdes: 6
- Didn't have a save to make all night and only touched the ball when he plucked a few crosses from the air.

Alves: 8 - A constant threat down the right wing and defending reasonably well too. Capped off a fine performance with a great free-kick, his first goal for Barcelona since joining this summer. Has taken a while to settle in but now he has he is starting to reproduce the form that made him such a hit at Sevilla.

Puyol: 7 - Had very little to do all night after Negredo was sent off and a solid performance from the centre-back.

Márquez: 7 - Much like Puyol he wasn't tested all night but dealt with the long balls and rare attacks well.

Abidal: 8 - Linked up really well with Henry down the left flank and defending very well too. Good game from the Frenchman.

Xavi: 8 - Another great performance from the midfielder who always seems to be at the centre of all things good about Barcelona along with Iniesta. Controlled the game from the midfield and was a joy to watch.

Touré: 7 - Solid performance and will be pleased to be getting minutes under his belt. Nothing too spectacular from the Ivory Coast international but he provided good cover when the ball was lost by the front men.

Iniesta: 9 - How this man did not get a nomination for the Balon D'Or is a mystery. A simply brilliant player when on song as he was tonight and was at heart of nearly all the plays from the midfield. Some lovely balls and skills to take it around the keeper on more than one occasion. Only downside is he didn't get a goal!

Messi: 7 - Some nice trademark runs from the Argentine but didn't seem to be on top of his game with the final ball. Maybe a little tired after playing so much but still a good performance.

Henry: 7 - Starting to find his feet in this Barcelona side and he showed just why he was so highly rated at Arsenal with a lovely first touch flick then volley in the second half. Worked hard up and down the left and got a deserved goal by been in the right place.

Eto'o: 9 - Really starting to find some form now and even though none of his three goals were particularly breathtaking he was the man everyone was looking for when they were on the ball. The figurehead of the side and one of the best finishers in the world still, a marvellous player and seeming to be enjoying his football again.


Bojan: 6
- Few nice runs but nothing too special in a second half that lacked much excitement.

Hleb: 6 - Like Bojan he only played when the game was already won and couldn't provide too many memorable moments, although did show some nice touches and a decent turn of pace.

Sánchez: 6 - Hardly got any time but did what he had to do well enough.


Alves: 4
- At fault for a couple of goals and although he made a good save to deny Eto'o at the end he should have been more decisive with some of his goalkeeping.

Bruno: 5 - Got turned a few times but going forward looked decent and not a bad performance by the right-back.

García: 4 - Was caught out of position on too many occasions and didn't get tight enough to the forwards to prevent them turning and playing their passes.

Pellerano: 5- Like García was caught out and gave the opponents too much time but he did make some good tackles and in the second-half especially was very solid at the back.

Guilherme: 4 - A game of two halves for the left back. First forty-five he was turned inside out by the Barcelona forwards and couldn't get to grips with them at all. Second-half though he was much better and looked a threat going forward too.

Corona: 6- Not a bad performance from the midfielder and not many can live with Iniesta and Xavi when they are in such scintillating form. Could have been a bit better with his distribution at times maybe.

J. Ortíz: 4 - Had a few nice runs and shots but after Negredo was sent off he was playing too far forward and couldn't really get into the game a lot.

Álvarez: 5 - Like Corono he didn't play particularly badly but was just outdone by the class of the opponents. Wasteful with some possession, although he did improve second-half.

Soriano: 4- Did very little throughout the match except get himself booked for a very cynical challenge on Messi. Couldn't up with the pace of the game at times.

Crusat: 5 - One of the better forwards for Almería but when Negredo went off the game was effectively over from an attacking view for the visitors and he defended quite well when he had to.

Negredo: 4 - Was the main goal hope for Almería but saw red after just 29 minutes after a late tackle on Márquez. It was a harsh decision and up until then he had looked useful, especially in the air, but nevertheless a silly tackle.


Mané: 6
- Came on in the easier of the two halves for Almería and burst forward well on a few occasions and also looked solid at the back.

Natalio: 5 - Lost the ball on a few occasions but prefers to play up front with Negredo and looked out of position.

Ortiz: 6 - Decent enough three or four minutes, did nothing wrong and nothing particularly great.
