SD Eibar vs FC Barcelona : picture gallery and best moments
Luis Enrique’s men comfortably achieved another win to their unbeaten victory run as they breezed to a comfortable victory against out-of-form Eibar with two brilliant goals either side of half-time mark of the Barcelona vs Eibar match.
Lionel Messi’s fabulous display of scoring form continued as he hit a stunning double to set another La Liga record as the leaders Barcelona eased to a thumping 4-0 win over Eibar at Ipurua.
Messi made it to a handsome 15 goals in his last 10 outings with an awesome individual breakaway strike after 41 minutes mark of the Barcelona vs Eibar clash and a second-half penalty following a rather harsh handball decision given against Ivan Ramis.
Luis Enrique went for Munir El Haddadi to fill in for the suspended striker Neymar and he brilliantly responded by rounding off a lovely move to put Barca right on course for an 11th successive top-flight win after just eight minutes of the Barcelona vs Eibar encounter.
Mendilibar’s team again produced a very strong reaction, but went into the interval being two goals down following a splendid solo strike by Messi.
The Argentine was allowed to roam and dribble at the defence and into the box converging on the counter-attack, creating sufficient space up against Ander Capa to fire a shot right inside the far post.
Messi looked set to add to his tally yet another goal seven minutes after the restart of the Barcelona vs Eibar clash, but a pitiable first touch from Suarez’s cutback enabled the Eibar defence to throw in a tackle this time.
Messi finally got his second in the 76th minute, calmly netting home from a spot-kick following an upsetting handball by Ramis, who was on the floor after bravely attempting to make a sliding block.
There was still time for one more goal for Luis Enrique’s team to add yet another, as Suarez lashed a low finish beyond the Eibar goalkeeper Asier Riesgo with six minutes remaining on the clock – the Uruguayan’s strike meaning, he, Messi and Neymar have now successfully scored a combined 100 goals this season.
