European Roundup: Win for Barcelona as Lukaku sends Inter top

FC Barcelona ascended to the top of the Laliga table after recording an impressive 5-1 win over Real Valladolid at Camp Nou on Tuesday night.

Lionel Messi was once again the star man as he scored a brace and provide another two-assists; the game coming after their Saturday’s clásico against Real Madrid was postponed until December because of political tension.

Messi teed up Arturo Vidal who put Barca into a 2-1 lead then whipped a free-kick into the top corner. The Argentine fired home another goal minutes later and sent Luis Suárez through to ensure Barcelona moved top on 22 points from 10 matches.

Still, in Laliga, Atlético Madrid was held to a 1-1 draw at Alavés as Lucas Pérez’s sublime solo strike cancelled out substitute Álvaro Morata opener. Atletico is now third after 11 games, level on 20 points with surprise package Granada who face Getafe on Thursday.
