Messi, Suarez & Neymar Run Riot In Barca Rout

Spanish La Liga 

Teams: Leganes 1-5 FC Barcelona 

Date: 17 September 2016

Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar ran riot for FC Barcelona, as the La Liga champions secured a 5-1 win over Leganes on Saturday afternoon.

Messi, Suarez and Neymar maintained their spot in the starting line-up, while Andres Iniesta returned to captain the side.

After a slow start, Barcelona eventually broke the deadlock after 15 minutes when Luis Suarez teed up Lionel Messi for the simple tap-in.

The visitors doubled their lead after 32 minutes when Messi took advantage of some sloppy defending, before picking out Suarez, who slotted home from close range.

It was one way traffic in the first half and Barcelona added a third goal on the stroke of halftime, as Suarez picked up his second assist to tee up Neymar, who tapped into an empty net.

The La Liga champions were awarded a spot-kick 10 minutes into the second half when Neymar was brought down. Messi stepped up and made no mistake from the spot, 4-0.

It was becoming all too easy for the Catalan giants, as they grabbed a fifth goal in the 64th minute courtesy of a sublime effort from Rafinha Alcantara.

Leganes managed to grab a consolation goal after 80 minutes as Gabriel curled home a sublime free-kick, which drew the loudest cheer on the day.
