Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez combine with outrageous penalty for Barcelona

  

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez combined to score an audacious penalty as La Liga leaders Barcelona thrashed Celta Vigo to move three points clear.

With Barca leading 3-1, Messi nudged the spot-kick forward and to his right for Suarez to run into the area and side-foot in to complete his hat-trick.

Messi opened the scoring with a sublime free-kick before Celta striker John Guidetti drilled in a penalty to level.

After Suarez's second-half treble, Ivan Rakitic and Neymar sealed the rout.

The defending champions still have a game in hand on nearest rivals Atletico Madrid, with Real Madrid four points adrift of Barca in third.
