Jordi Alba was delighted with Barcelona's 4-0 victory at Real Mallorca for their LaLiga restart.

Alba was thrilled with the performance and the result.

He scored the third of the night, in addition to assisting the opener.

"We controlled the game," he said afterwards.

"After three months without playing, we had a great game.

"The team came out well.

"To have scored in the first minute was good, it gives confidence.
