Barcelona’s form is excellent heading into the second leg of its UEFA Champions League against Arsenal.

The Blaugranas ran their La Liga record unbeaten streak to 37 matches Saturday when they hung six on Getafe at the Camp Nou.

They aren’t just winning; they are thrashing the opposition. Neymar scored twice, while Munir El Haddadi and Lionel Messi also scored before Arda Turan finished things off with a bicycle kick in the 6-0 win.

And perhaps this is ordinary by Messi’s standards, but what movement. The Argentine starts the fluid move with a flourish before recollecting the ball, turning his mark and using a moment’s defensive hesistation to smash a ball home.

Updating a previous story, Barca has scored 117 goals during the streak and kept 19 clean sheets for a goal differential of 97.

That’s okay, I guess

Is Barca having the best season of its generation? I think yes.
