Barcelona v Huesca PS

Messi's two goals were both superb finishes, and he also set up Ivan Rakitic for Barcelona's fifth goal with a lovely dink.

A magical Lionel Messi and in-form Luis Suarez scored doubles apiece as champions Barcelona thrashed newly-promoted Huesca 8-2 to join Real Madrid at the top of La Liga on Sunday.

Messi and Suarez completed their braces at either end of the half and Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic and Jordi Alba all joined in the fun as the hosts comprehensively maintained their ideal start to the campaign.

Barca top the LaLiga standings ahead of bitter rivals Real Madrid on goal difference heading into the global break.

"We had patience and dominated the game, and eight goals are the product of the plays we generated throughout the game", Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde told the team website.

Huesca took a shock lead inside three minutes at Camp Nou, with on-loan Watford striker Cucho Hernandez converting from close range after Samuele Longo had headed down inside the Barcelona box. Messi leveled in the 16th, cannoning a shot in off the post.

Suarez then got involved for Barca, making the score 3-1 in the 39th minute.

But reality soon kicked in, a slick Messi levelling in the 16th minute after leaving right-back Luisinho on the deck on his way to beating Argentine goalkeeper Axel Werner. Instead, showed Barca their intentions to come off with a positive outcome, with Alex Gallar poking home their second off poor defending following a low-medium cross.

Four then became five in the 52nd minute when Rakitic produced a stunning half-volley from a Messi pass, with Werner again given no chance between the Huesca sticks. The pass from Alba had to go to VAR as there was a hint of offside when the left-back picked up the ball.

Messi registered another assist in the 81st minute, sending Alba a crafty through ball toward the far post.
