Barcelona smashed seight goals past Santos tonight to claim the Joan Gamper Trophy at the Camp Nou.

The game, arranged as part of Neymar's transfer from Santos to the Catalan club, never looked like being a close one and Lionel Messi opened up the scoring early on.

An Alexis Sanchez strike and a Santos own-goal made it 3-0, before Pedro made it four with an easy tap in with not even 30 minutes gone.

With the game threatening to turn into a rout, Barcelona eased up a little and it wasn't until the 52nd minute that they made it five, with Cesc Fabregas finishing smartly in front of the home crowd.

The former Arsenal man then doubled his tally for the night with an equally accomplished finish following a neat pass from Neymar.

Adriano added Barcelona's 7th with the strike of the night - the defender curling home a fine effort from 20 yards.

Youngster Jean-Marie rounded off the scoring in the last ten minutes with a simple tap-in.
