Barcelona beat Villarreal with a great performance by Messi and Neymar. Suarez also scored.
There isn't a bigger asset when you need to win a match than having the MSN by your side. Luis Enrique always tries to find a solution so Messi, Neymar and Suarez find the shortest path to the goal. Barcelona's strikers always look for each other when they receive the goal. Against Villarreal at Camp Nou, the second team in goals conceded of the league, the MSN didn't forgive and score four: two by Messi, one Neymar and another for Suarez.
Luis Enrique had the chance to play the 'classic' eleven but instead he gave the chance to Digne at the left-back, while Jordi Alba was benched. Digne had been in the bench in the last 13 matches, but now has started two of the last three.
Barcelona started the game with calm, avoiding defensive mistakes. However Villarreal created chances at the counter. Neymar put Barcelona ahead but Bakambu answered straight away.
The goal just before the break, scored by Messi, was maybe the most important one.
In the second half the scarlet and blues showed his best football. Suarez scored his goal and Messi ended the show with a 'panenka' penalty.
It wasn't an easy match as the opponent was quite dangerous and Madrid was playing against Granada in what seemed to be a comfortable match for Zidane's men. Barcelona didn't fail.
