Could have probably done better for the third goal and was unlucky to concede the first. Nothing he could do tonight.
Struggled against Abidal and Villa in the first half and offered fairly little in attack. A sub-par performance.
Three of Barcelona's goals came from his zone. Fairly slow at times and Barca's attackers were not afraid to take advantage of that.
The better of the two centre halves. Looked fairly stable before the break, and did his best to save his team from sinking in the second period, but to no avail.
Could have done better for Villa's strike and probably for Pedro's, too. Offered virtually nothing in attack.
Offered virtually nothing in attack, spent most of the time defending, but to no greater effect.
Showed willingness in attack, but struggled with his final ball. Did his job well in a defensive sense.
His contribution in attack was virtually non-existent tonight. One could hardly tell if he was on the pitch.
Tried to put in a fight against Barcelona's midfield machine, but could not prevail. Worked hard and covered a lot of ground, but the final result was missing.
Missed the only two chances for Deportivo tonight. First one - a sitter in the 22nd minute and one in injury time that he had to put away.
Had exactly one save to make to deny Adrian in injury time and he pulled off a good save. Merely a spectator besides that.
Made a telling contribution in attack and was stable defensively. Put in some good crosses and provided great width in the final third.
Did not have much to do, and aside from the situation in the 22nd minute, he did well. Sprayed the ball well out of defence.
Had virtually nothing to do in defence, allowing him do charge forward. Did very well in attack and generally made a good impression.
Very sound at the back. Read the game well and showed good positioning.
He is not Xavi, but did his best to help out both in attack and in defence. All in all, a decent performance.
Very encouraging performance from the midfield enforcer. Showed tremendous work-rate and commitment and covered a lot of ground.
Scored with a simple finish and looked lively in attack. Struggled with his final ball at times, but still was a key component in Barca's attack.
Once again showed quick feet and a bag full of tricks and dribbles. Scored a decent goal to cap off a good performance.
Scored a marvellous free-kick, provided the assist for Villa's strike and made Pedro's goal. Fantastic, nothing more to say.
Scored a decent goal and caused plenty of problems for Deportivo's defence with his running. Substituted after the break.

Had twenty minutes to impress, but was not much of an improvement over Desmarets.
He may not have the legs anymore, but still showed us a bit of what he is remembered for as he created a wonderful chance for Adrian in injury time, which the striker wasted.
Came on late.
