In the last league game of 2016, Barcelona blew past city rivals Espanyol with a Messi and Iniesta inspired 4-1 victory.

Not intimidated by Espanyol’s recent run of great form, Barça tallied two goals from Luis Suárez, and one each from Jordi Alba and Lionel Messi. David López was also on the scoresheet for the visitors.

In honor of our Being Iniesta book contest (congratulations to our winner Kenny!) this week’s match review comes courtesy of our Twitter followers, and their inspired responses to yesterday’s victory.

Our thanks to everyone who entered, and to all of our Twitter followers who inspired the contest!
