Barcelona entered their last match with Malaga with only one goal on their minds: To equal the record 100-points mark set by Real Madrid just last year.
After winning the league some weeks ago, and dividing almost €20 million in spoils among the players, Barcelona president Sandro Rosell added some extra incentive by installing a €1 million reward if the team got the 100 points. Saturday night at Camp Nou, the team played as if money was on their mind.
The Blaugrana scored in just the fourth minute of the game, after Pedro received a perfect long ball from Iniesta and dropped it off for David Villa to pound in the back of the net. Just ten minutes later it was Iniesta teaming up with Cesc Fabregas for a one-two that left Cesc with a perfectly placed shot in front of goal.
Two minutes after that Montoya volleyed a monstrous shot off of a corner kick rebound which settled into the left corner of the net, just past the keeper’s outstretched hands. Iniesta refused to be left out of the scoring melee in the second half, after he found space in front of the box and curved the ball into the upper right hand corner of the net.
Malaga’s Morales scored an amazing, yet meaningless goal just five minutes later after receiving a cross and firing it just above Pinto’s head to complete the score, 4-1.
