Shortly after seeing Rakitic fizz a long-range strike wide of the left post, Alvarez pulled off a sharp save to tip over Andres Iniesta's shot on 22 minutes after Messi's backheel played the midfielder in through the middle.

"I'm happy about the goals that were scored", Alba said after the match.

Juan Carlos Unzue's men finally had a sniff of goal two minutes before half-time as Daniel Wass looked to pick out Iago Aspas with a header into the six-yard box, but the striker was unable to steer the ball on target with an acrobatic effort. The defender finished the bounced offering on his first touch with a diving left-footed volley in the 28th minute.

"It's a luxury to have Leo in the side, he's the best in history", he told Gol Television. With the Celta Vigo players taking a brief breather, Messi remained composed to spot Alba making a break on the far side of the pitch.

Alba was also the provider for the second goal of the game, featuring a lovely one-two that began with a Messi pass and ended with another Messi goal.

Suarez stretched the lead in the 31st by capitalising on Pione Sisto's sloppy back pass to score for the fifth game running and Ivan Rakitic completed the rout with a header in the 87th against ex-Barca assistant coach Juan Carlos Unzue's team. The Blaugrana face-off against Real Sociedad at 2:45 p.m. Sunday at Anoeta Stadium in San Sebastian, Spain.

When asked about the impact of Ousmane Dembele, who recently returned from a lengthy injury layoff, Valverde said: "He's taken an important step". "We played really really well". 'Celta always score away from home, they have done in every away game this season.
