The Brazilian scores two goals against Deportivo

Barcelona is not a three men team. Not even eleven. Luis Enrique's squad grows day by day and adds new systems in their season. Barcelona have many ideas and one of them, Rafinha, was the key man against Deportivo scoring the first two goals of the match. Everyone wants to play and those who are not regulars push hard for a spot.

While Aleix Vidal was not called up even Sergi Roberto was injured, Luis Enrique decided to use three centre-backs, a three man defense, and then Digne and Arda Turan in the wings. Messi was in the bench, but he appeared in the second half and showed what he is capable of.

Pique and Mathieu were amazing in defense. Suarez, with a great movement, managed to score the third before half time. Everything was solved by then.

Luis Enrique started thinking in Manchester City and made some changes. Suarez and Busquets went off and Messi in. 

Deportivo were down to 10 men after Laure was sent off for a tackle on Neymar. Messi scored the fourth and Alcacer could have scored the fifth, but it wasn't his day, one more time.
