Barcelona increased their lead at the top of the La Liga table to 11 points with closest challengers Atletico Madrid in action later this evening. 

 

Lionel Messi was in inspiring form as he led the rout against Eibar, with Barca coming away with a 4-0 victory thank to a double from Messi after Munir opened the scoring, with Luis Suarez grabbing his 26th La Liga goal of the season before the end.  


Munir opened the scoring early on, after a sumptuous pass by the Argentine created the opening. 

The five time Ballon d'Or winner then doubled the lead with a superb finish after picking the ball up close to the halfway line. 

Keeping in true Barca fashion this season, Luis Suarez got himself on the scoresheet after doing extremely well to avoid the attention of a couple of tacklers before firing in. 


With just 10 games remaining, it looks exceedingly unlikely that Barca will surrender their title to either of the Madrid challengers,despite Real's 7-1 hammering of Celta Vigo yesterday
