Barcelona registered a 3-0 win over hosts Eibar on Saturday 19th in a LaLiga kick-off match.
Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring for Barcelona before Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez added each a goal in the second half to take maximum points away. This becomes the third defeat of the season for Eibar who are now 13th on the log with nine points.
Griezmann ⚽ 13'
Barcelona took the lead in the 13th minute through Antoine Griezmann with a well-taken finish after a lovely pass from Clément Lenglet.
In the second half, Luiz Suarez's strike was disallowed by the VAR after replays showed the forward was in an offside position. Messi had chipped a ball through to Suarez in the area but the Uruguayan looked to be level as the pass was played through by the captain.
Messi goal ⚽ 59'
De Jong played a ball to Suarez, who looked to make himself a shooting opportunity but lost control and it went to Griezmann who spotted Messi in space to his left. He squared to give the Argentine a simple finish for his second of the season.
Suarez ⚽ 67'
Suarez made it 3-0 for the visitors as Messi was through in space and squared for the former Liverpool man on his left, the Uruguayan left with a simple finish.
The win now sends Barcelona to the top of the table with 19 points, one above second-placed Real Madrid who take on RCD Mallorca tonight.
