Samuel Eto'o struck his 27th goal of the season in Barcelona's 4-0 romp over Sevilla last night.

At the final whistle, Eto'o smiled: "I wanted to beat my best record and I have already achieved this. From here, whatever comes is a gift."

The Cameroon attacker also had praise for teammate Andres Iniesta: "Iniesta has given me a great pass. It will be he and Lionel Messi who will share the Ballon d'Or."
