Barcelona faced Sporting Gijon in the Spanish Primera Liga on Saturday, 23 April 2016 night in third place as both Atletico and Real had won their games earlier in the day the match ended Barcelona 6-0 Sporting Gijon as Luis Suarez scored 4 goals. Lionel Messi’s first half strike put barcelona on course but Gijon made life difficult for the defending champions at Camp Nou. Barcelona turn up the head in second half as they put 5 more past Gijon with Suarez grabbing 4 goals in second game in a running.
Lionel Messi lopping header found the back of the net after Gijon keeper failed to clear his lines properly. That goal kind of put a mask of a very dodgy performance by Barcelona in the first half.
After the break Barcelona took control of the game as Messi dictated play and he found Neymar with peach of throug balls twice only for Brazilian to fluff his shots.
After missing several chances, Barcelona finally scored their second of the night when Messi played Iniesta through on the left side and his low cross was bundled home by Luis Suarez at the far post and that opened up a flood gate as Barcelona ran riot in last 20 minutes and scored four more goals to make it 6-0 on the night.
Luis Suarez became the fist player in history to score 4 goals in back to back league games in any of the Europe’s top leagues. He has now 34 goals to his name, 3 more than Ronaldo in the pichichi race.
