Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez lit up the Camp Nou on Sunday night with a performance that will have had Johan Cruyff smiling the broadest of smiles.
The old maestro invented the penalty assist at Feyenoord and Barcelona’s forwards repeated the little football miracle at the Camp Nou in the home team’s 6-1 win over Celta Vigo. Barcelona were 3-1 up when Messi won a second half penalty and everyone inside the stadium expected him to score what would have been his 300th league goal. But instead he rolled the ball to Suarez who scored his hat-trick.

Suarez' third goal was a piece of sheer arrogance from Messi and his mates. Messi tapped his penalty kick sideways and slightly forward to allow Suarez to come in from the 18-yard line and smack the ball into the net on an afternoon when he was involved all six of his team's goals.
