Villa admits Barcelona needed 8-0 confidence boost

David Villa hailed his Barcelona teammates after their 8-0 thrashing of Osasuna. Villa struck twice in the rout.

"Winning 8-0 gives us huge confidence, and also to score two goals gives me great pleasure personally," the Spain international told AS. "We used this game to raise our self-esteem.

"It's hard to say that when you draw two straight games, you have played well. But I think we played well [against Osasuna], and even then we played well during those draws."
