Cesc Fabregas netted his first goal for Barcelona as the Spanish giants clinched the Joan Gamper trophy against competition debutantes Napoli at the Camp Nou in a 5-0 win on Monday evening. 

A move typical of Barcelona ended with Fabregas directing the ball into an open goal, after Andres Iniesta’s ball found Adriano who slid the ball to the grateful Fabregas to tap home.  

Barcelona doubled its lead in emphatic fashion when Iniesta chipped the ball over the Napoli defense for Seydou Kieta, who had started the move before bursting into the penalty area to double Barcelona’s lead.

Lionel Messi came close with a free-kick, which was expertly tipped onto the bar by Morgan de Sanctis only for the ‘keeper to helplessly watch as Pedro nodded in the rebound. Messi soon after extended Barca’s lead after one-touch football lead to Pedro finding the Argentine four yards out.

Messi rounded off Barcelona's scoring in the 77th minute for his second with a well-taken finish.
