The Uruguayan turned to some improvisation to net the opener. With his back to goal and the ball popped up in the air after Lionel Messi's deflected cross, Suarez leaned back and flicked the ball off the outside of his right foot, much to the delight of the Camp Nou faithful. The goal was Suarez's 24th of his La Liga campaign.

Just minutes later, Barcelona scored again, with Neymar crossing for Suarez, who set up Lionel Messi for an even better look at goal.
Messi then added Barcelona's third goal in eight minutes with a powerful volley off a failed clearance to give his side a 30 lead.
