Barcelona beat Villarreal to keep the pressure on arch rivals, Real Madrid, for the Spanish La Liga title.
Barca’s famous forward line, MSN, broke the 100 goals barrier in the routine win.
Playing before Madrid’s trip to relegated Granada, Barca kept up their end of the bargain to go three points clear of their fierce rivals, but it is a fixture that ought not to hold fear for Zinedine’s Zidane men – who also hold another game in hand over the Catalans.
Each of the goals indicated exactly what Barcelona will need in the run-in – Neymar’s quick feet, Messi’s dazzling dribbling and Suarez’s brute power – and Luis Enrique’s stony insistence that Barca will give their all to overhaul Madrid was boosted by an 11th home win in a row – their best sequence in LaLiga under his stewardship.
