Barcelona destroyed Getafe 6-0 at the Camp Nou extending their unbeaten run to an unprecedented 37 games and breaking the league record for consecutive games without a loss that they themselves held in the process.
Lionel Messi and Neymar were fantastic as has come to be expected but there was another hero worthy of praise – Arda Turan.
Turan provided an assist and scored taking his overall tally to four assists and two goals since making his debut against Espanyol in January.
We took a look on social media to find out how Turan’s display went down with the home faithful.
First of all let us take another look at the goal… what a beauty!
And here it is again as seen from a fan present at the Camp Nou who captured the footage live.

Barcelona are not short on flair with the MSN – Messi, Suarez and Neymar – wowing fans week in week out with their mind-blowing skills and then you have Turan scoring goals like this.
It does make you wonder at times if it is even fair for any team to play Barca anymore. Is there a team out there capable of stopping this Barca side?

Just noticed the goal Arda Turan made. Can't lie it was a great goal

The goal seemed to win over a few of Turan’s doubters who were questioning his flair and creativity in the lead up to the game.
