Sunday afternoon certainly saw a game to remember for Barcelona, as they scored four against reigning La Liga champions, Atletico Madrid, in a win which meant the Blaugranes leapfrogged their opponents in the table.
Diego Simeone’s side even had the audacity to take the lead in the match thanks to a fabulous move which was finished off by Yannick Carrasco.
The entertainment had only just got going, however.
Within a couple of minutes, Jordi Alba scored a volley that will take some beating as La Liga’s goal of the season.
Dani Alves provided the sublime assist, and he would get in on the act himself in the second half when scoring Barca’s fourth and becoming the oldest player in club history to find the net.

Not long after Alba had restored parity and sent the Camp Nou crazy, Gavi got on the end of an Adama Traore cross to head the hosts into the lead.
As Tim Lee noted on Twitter, when Gavi was born in Seville, Alves had already played 46 matches for Sevilla!
Getting a 17-year-old and 38-year-old on the score sheet in the same game must be some sort of record.

Ronald Araujo completed the scoring for Barca, with Luis Suarez scoring on his return to the Camp Nou.
It was a six goal thriller that truly had everything.
