If we remember correctly the game in question was the 2011 edition of Barcelona’s pre-season Joan Gamper trophy jolly (it was also Cesc Fabregas’ debut if memory serves) though that didn’t stop Pep’s legions well and truly decimating Napoli at the Camp Nou – with the Italians merely rolling over, spreading eagle and taking their rogering with absolutely zero resistance.

However, Napoli did display one brief scintilla of intent before Barca finished sticking five past them, though it was extinguished almost as soon as it sparked when Edinson Cavani’s outrageous overhead kick was immediately struck off over an offside call in the build-up…

Still, at least he got to hoof Gerard Pique in the face. That’s something, right?

More great disallowed goals…
