Barcelona romps host Villarreal in a 1 – 4 win at the Estadio de la Cerámica stadium.
Torres inadvertently opened the scoring with an own-goal after three minutes, but Moreno restored parity shortly after as he thumped home from close range when Ter Stegen parried Cazorla’s shot.
However, Messi showed dazzling close control to set Suarez up for a fantastic, curling strike, before backheeling into Griezmann for a clever, chipped finish in an action-packed first-half.
Substitute Fati put the icing on the cake with a shot through Albiol’s legs that fooled Asenjo at the near post, but the goalkeeper made amends with an outstanding save to prevent the visitors from extending their lead even further. It finishes 4-1 to Barcelona!
