Messi sets records as Barcelona demolish Huesca

The home side were level in the 16th minute, however, when Messi worked his way into the Huesca box before finding the bottom corner via the inside of the post.

FC Barcelona humiliated a hapless Huesca 8-2, with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez each grabbing a double in LaLiga on Sunday evening.

Huesca answered nearly immediately back, however, with Alex Gallar turning a low Moi Gomez cross past Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen for 3-2.

But it proved little more than fleeting joy as Messi, Suarez and a Jorge Pulido own goal swiftly erased the early concern.

Of course Messi being Messi he added another assist before the game was out with a brilliant pass to set up Jordi Alba for Barcelona's seventh.

Huesca battled back when Gallar converted Moi Gomez's cut-back three minutes before the break and the minnows left the field with a spring in their step at the interval.

PSG superstar Neymar sits on four goals in France's Ligue 1 already, while his strike partner, Mbappe, who was sent off against Nimes this past weekend, has also struck four times.

Suarez was not to be denied, however, and after being brought to the ground by Werner inside the box, the Uruguay worldwide stepped forward to convert from the penalty spot as Barcelona hit eight on home soil. Then Messi netted his second score of the game. With thirty minutes to go, Messi once again delivered another dagger thanks to Phillipe Coutinho's pass on the counter.

Suarez won an injury-time penalty following a foul by keeper Axel Werner and threw the ball to Messi so he could score his third.

"We've gone out in the quarter-finals three years in a row and the last time was the worst of all, because of how we played and that we came with a result that was in our favour".

Suarez and his Barcelona teammates now have two weeks before their next fixture, which is against Real Sociedad.
