Messi, Suarez, Neymar Run Riot As Barcelona Smash Celta Vigo

Luis Suarez grabbed a hat-trick on Sunday as Barcelona handed out a 6-1 La Liga hiding to Celta Vigo at Camp Nou.
The win saw Barcelona extend their lead at the top of the table and their record unbeaten run to 30 matches.

Lionel Messi and Neymar were also on form once again for Barcelona – combining well with Suarez for the big win.

Suarez netted three thanks to two assists from Messi, who scored one of his own, and one from Neymar in a simple win.

The highlight of the game came late in the second half as Messi stepped up to take a penalty but instead passed it to Suarez to get him his third strike. If Messi had scored, it would have been his 300th La Liga goal.

Messi opened the scoring after 28 minutes with a sublime free kick past Sergio Alvarez, but John Guidetti was on hand to level for the visiting side with a penalty later in the half.

Barcelona found themselves back in the lead 15 minutes after the restart, though, with Messi scooping the ball nto Luis Suarez’s path with wonderful precision, allowing the Uruguay attacker to tuck home to make it 2-1.

Suarez had the game beyond doubt with 15 minutes remaining, as Messi cut inside and poked a through ball into the path of Neymar, who sprinted into the penalty area and rounded Alvarez before sliding a shot over towards the far post, where Suarez was able to knock it into the back of the net from close range.
