Messi, Suarez, lead Barca Rout in La Liga

Messi, Suarez, lead Barca Rout in La Liga

The other shots weren't too shabby either, with three coming off of the boot of Luis Suarez and another two goals from Lionel Messi.

But, before the dust had settled on the shock opener to the game, Barcelona were soon level when Lionel Messi provided the ideal assist for Luis Suarez to score.

Lionel Messi's Barcelona team mates and coach Ernesto Valverde were singing his praises after the Argentine scored an inspired free kick where he sent the ball under the wall and into the net in their 6-1 thrashing of Girona on Saturday.

"It's hard to get used to things like this".

With 13 minutes left to play, Suarez completed his hat-trick as Ousmane Dembele managed to pick out the striker with an inch flawless cross from the right-hand side and Suarez made no mistake.

"Just when a player seems to have done everything, he goes and surprises you". "We all expected to see how he would get it over the wall but he hits it under".

Those totals are similar but slightly lower than last season, where he scored 23 goals and 15 assists for 38 points in 67 games. But the Bruins had a need and the trade for Nash shows that they're all in and have a long playoff run in their sights.

"When you see it, you think 'Ah, of course.' Leo makes it look easy, but it's not that easy".

The Catalan giants' victory also helped Barcelona to a 32 game unbeaten streak, which is one better than their own record off 31 which was set in 2010/11 when Pep Guardiola was at the helm.

Their domination continued in the second half when Ousmane Dembele set Suarez up, but his strike came back off the woodwork. "[Messi's] very important for us".

Barcelona wrapped up the game just before half-time as Messi found Coutinho, who squared for Suarez to tap home his second of the game from close range.

"Coutinho and Dembele? Both players can help us. Karim played very well and he deserved to score as he contributed so much in our build-up play", Zidane told a news conference.

Barca finished the game with 10 when, after making all three substitutions, right-back Nelson Semedo limped off with an apparent hamstring injury.
