Eibar 0-3 Barca: MSG help Catalans get 5th straight win and reach La Liga top

One of the main talking points of the past week has been the postponement of El Clasico, something Clement Lenglet was asked about after Barcelona’s 3-0 win

Griezmann, Messi and Suarez were all on target as Barcelona coasted to a 3-0 win at Eibar to end a frantic week with a fifth straight victory on all fronts.

Griezmann (13′

Messi (58′

Suárez (66′

Griezmann opened the scoring with a classy 13th-minute goal and teed up Messi to double the lead after neat work from Suarez, who scored in a seventh straight outing against Eibar to round out the routine triumph.

Suarez’s audacious effort just inside the opposition half was not in keeping with the tone of the early exchanges in which Pedro Leon blazed over from one of several dangerous Eibar crosses.

It was game over when Messi finished a wonderful team move just shy of the hour. 

Suarez combined brilliantly with Griezmann and he teed up the Argentina superstar to slot into the bottom-right corner.

Messi then turned provider, racing onto Griezmann’s sumptuous throughball and unselfishly laying on for Suarez to pass into an open goal.

NICE TRY! Suarez’s shot wide out

Suarez with a lovely touch and then nutmeg to work space for the shot at goal, he tries to catch Dmitrovic off his line from long range, but the ball flies well wide of the Eibar goal.
