Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez grabbed a brace each as Barcelona spanked Roma 6-1 on Tuesday.
Barcelona needed just a point from the game with Roma to ensure qualification for the second round of the Champions League as group leaders, but they ended up making it into the round of 16 before a ball had been kicked after BATE Borisov and Bayer Leverkusen drew 1-1 in the other game in the group, which kicked off in Belarus three hours earlier.
Suarez tapped home the first goal before Messi finished off a sublime move. Suarez then volleyed in his second.
Gerard Pique made it 4-0 from close range and Messi poked in another.
Adriano rifled in the rebound after Neymar had his penalty saved before Edin Dzeko headed in the consolation in stoppage time.
Former Manchester City forward Dzeko also headed over from close range and had a penalty saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The win was the biggest by a Spanish team over an Italian club in European history and means Barcelona have reached the round of 16 in 12 straight seasons
In those 12 seasons, the Catalans have gone on to win the European title four times, while in the same period no other club has won it more than once. The teams clubs to have lifted the trophy are Liverpool, AC Milan, Manchester United, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Bayern and Real Madrid.
