Barcelona romped past minnows Huesca in a 10-goal affair, wherein Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both scored twice in an 8-2 win on the night.

Huesca took an early lead through Watford loanee Cucho Hernandez in the third minute itself, but Messi levelled with a shot off the post.

The Argentine skipper, who also hit the bar, went on to add a second on the counter-attack. The record goal-scorer also played his part in assisting two goals.

Messi was in line to smash a hat-trick when Barca won a late penalty in injury-time, but the Barcelona legend let striker Suarez do the honours.

Suarez had gone on to win the penalty following a foul by keeper Axel Werner, and threw the ball to Messi. But the Barcelona captain gave the ball back to his teammate, who sent Werner the wrong way.

The gesture by Messi has got the fans berserk on social media site Twitter, where many applauded the player for selflessly letting go off what could have been his 31st hat-trick.

Suarez, who had been low on confidence prior to this match, slotted the ball in the back of the net to repay the trust Messi inlaid on him.


The two goals will boost Suarez’s confidence, and Barcelona will hope that their star player gets back to what he does best – score goals aplenty.

The win takes Barca level with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga on nine points from three games. They sit above though, on basis of goal difference.
