Barcelona inflicted a Valentines Day massacre crushing Celta Vigo 6-1 at the Camp Nou yesterday breaking their unbeaten record under the command of Luis Enrique to 30 matches.
The main talking point after the game was one of the most audacious penalties in the history of football. Lionel Messi did not shoot the penalty but instead passed it to the Uruguayan international who found the back of the net.
Arda Turan did not start but he did make a second half performance so we decided to take a look at how his display went down with Barca fans on social media.
An Arda aficionado was kind enough to share a few stats in regards to his performance provided by Opta. The Turkish international winger had 13 touches with a 100 percent pass accuracy.
Turan has featured in nine games during which time Suarez has provided seven assists, Neymar five, Messi five, Vidal two, Adriano two and the bearded winger has setup three goals.
Turan did not get as long as he may have hoped but Barcelona fans seemed pretty pleased with his contribution.
@ArdaTuran Good game and intertaining play😄 thanx for the great efforts😊 Visca La Barca❤💙

When you can bring off Turan, Vidal and Rakitic off the bench it shows what level of depth the current Barcelona has.
Barca have subbed on Vidal, Rakitic, and Arda Turan. Depth is nice
