Alexis Sanchez scored twice, Lionel Messi 0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Tuesday at the Camp Nou.

Sanchez scored in the 29th and 41st minutes and David Villa added a third just 2 minutes before half, as Barcelona rebounded from the 1-0 loss to Getafe just Saturday with its seventh home win in eight matches this season.

Messi added his goal 5 minutes after halftime, as he moved even with Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid for the league scoring lead.

Barcelona closed its six-point deficit on first-place Madrid to three points, but it has now played one more game. Rayo Vallecano had taken nine points from its first seven road games, but was no match for Barcelona on Tuesday.
