Barca stars score in win

  • Paulinho struggled against Chelsea in midweek

Meanwhile, with a 6-1 win over Girona, Barcelona have reached 32 games unbeaten in the Spanish top flight, thanks to Luis Suarez's hattrick, two record-breaking goals by Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho's first goal for Barcelona in the La Liga. Within five minutes the match was 1-1 and the atmosphere in Camp Nou was electric.

Ernesto Velverde's men were soon in the ascendancy and two wonder goals from Messi put them out of sight before Suarez grabbed his brace to all but settle the contest with a 4-1 lead at halftime.

Before scoring himself, Lionel Messi played a through ball to Luis Suarez to net an equaliser for Barcelona for what was the Argentine star's 148th career assist in La Liga. He chose to go with the grounded free kick under the wall and in.

Barcelona kept pressing and it seemed that all the Barça players wanted to get a piece of the action.

Coutinho received the ball from Suarez on the edge of the area, took a Girona defender left and then right before bending a lovely shot into the far corner.

"Leo is unbelievable", Coutinho told Movistar.

"Girona came in from a great run of form".

Barca managed to bag a sixth goal in the 76th minute as Dembele picked out Suarez with a low cross and the Uruguayan made no mistake to complete his hat-trick. We started badly, but luckily we replied quickly.

"He's a player who has and feels responsibility towards the team, and he assumed it when we were faced with their early pressure".

It was a good night for Barca, who have opened up a 10-point gap at the top of the table, with second-placed Atletico Madrid playing at Sevilla on Sunday.

"Dembele offers more width, he's a winger and he's still very young". This unofficially makes Lionel Messi the top assist provider in the top tier of Spanish football, despite the fact that it can not be confirmed by any available data sources.
