Messi, Suarez & Griezmann on fire as Barca thrash Eibar

La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 19/10/2019

Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann on fire as Barcelona thrash Eibar 3-0 in the La Liga encounter on Saturday early kick-off at Ipurua Municipal Stadium.

French striker Griezmann opened the scoring within the first quarter of an hour of the game when Clement Lenglet met his run behind Eibar’s high defensive line with a long ball that left him alone to beat goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic.

Dmitrovic denied Messi before halftime, but couldn’t do it again in the 58th after a passing combination by Suárez and Griezmann set up Barcelona’s all-time scorer in the area.

 

The three combined again in the 66th when Griezmann launched Messi with a through ball before the Argentina international slid the ball over for former Liverpool and Ajax striker to finish off on the break.

The result is Barcelona's sixth league win of the season and puts them on top of the pile at least until Real Madrid face Real Mallorca on Saturday evening.

Barcelona plays at Slavia Prague in the Champions League group phase on Wednesday.
