Barca Crush Getafe 4 - 0

From the UK Guardian:

"The Chile forward Alexis Sánchez scored twice as Barcelona swept to a 4-0 home win over Getafe that moved them to within a point of La Liga leaders Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Sánchez curled in the opener from Lionel Messi's layoff after 13 minutes and the world player of the year netted his 39th league goal and 61st in all competitions this season from an Andrés Iniesta backheel.

Sánchez and Pedro headed goals within three minutes of each other in the second half.

Barça, who were 10 points adrift of Madrid just over three weeks ago, cranked up the pressure with a 10th straight win and moved to within one point of their arch rivals."
