Suarez & Messi Run Riot As Barca Net Six In Catalan Derby

Spanish LaLiga Report: FC Barcelona v Girona 24 February 2018

By SL International - Feb 24, 2018 11:39 PM
Teams: FC Barcelona 6-1 Girona
Date: 24 February 2018
Venue: Camp Nou
Luis Suarez netted a hat-trick while Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho were also on target as FC Barcelona dismantled Girona FC 6-1 at the Camp Nou on Saturday evening.
It was the visitors who got off to a fine start when Portu handed his side the lead after just two minutes.
Girona's joy was short-lived, though, as Suarez restored parity with a fine finish after latching onto a pass from Messi in the fifth minute.
After getting over their shock start, the home side went on to take the lead on 30 minutes, with Messi squeezing the ball home at the near post, 2-1.
Six minutes later, Messi bagged his second and Barca's third on the night with a fine free-kick that went under the wall and sailed into the bottom corner.
Barca managed to bag a fourth goal before the break, with Suarez completing his brace with a close-range finish.
Ten minutes into the second half, Suarez nearly completed his hat-trick with a curling effort that crashed against the upright with Yassine Bono well beaten.
The fifth goal arrived in the 66th minute as Coutinho worked some space outside the box before curling a fine effort into the back of the net.
Suarez did eventually complete his hat-trick with 14 minutes remaining as the Uruguayan striker turned home Ousmane Dembele's low cross, 6-1.
Ernesto Valverde's charges pushed for more goals in the closing stages, but 6-1 was the how score remained on the night.

I don't understand how could a team score a goal in just 3 mins and end up putting head in mud. Scoring early against Barcelona is like committing suicide, it changes the complexion of a game and make them them more hunger because they are not loosers.
