Saturday's La Liga - 15 Goals In 3 Matches

Barcelona won its 14th straight La Liga match with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Racing Santander on Saturday. Racing did what it could to withstand Barcelona's barrage, but the Catalan side's trademark combination of short, quick passes was too much for the visitors to handle. Pedro Rodriguez and Lionel Messi scored in the first half and Andres Iniesta added another after the restart to send the league leaders seven points clear of Real Madrid ahead of its match against Mallorca on Sunday. Barcelona is just one victory shy of equaling the league record of consecutive wins set by Real Madrid in 1960-61.

Luis Fabiano scored a hat trick to help give Sevilla a 4-1 win over Levante. At Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, Luis Fabiano displayed his full repertoire of attacking skills, scoring with a header, a penalty and through an excellent dipping strike from outside the area. The Brazil striker opened the scoring in the 28th minute with a header and defender Julien Escude added second in the 39th. Fabiano scored his second from the penalty spot in the 43rd before Levante's Xisco Munoz made it 3-1. But the Brazilian's long blast sealed the victory in the 68th and gave him eight goals for the season.

Aritz Aduriz's late strike settled an amazing encounter in Champions League-chasing Valencia's favour as they claimed a 4-3 win against a spirited nine-man Malaga side. In a seven-goal thriller, Malaga almost managed an incredible away draw against Valencia before Aduriz snatched it away from them, despite having two men sent off and playing with at least one man disadvantage for more than 75 minutes of the game. The final goal from Aduriz was a heartbreaker for Malaga side that fought hard enough to earn a point.
