Barcelona's Luis Suarez admits it's a privilege to play with Lionel Messi

Barcelona's Luis Suarez admits it's a privilege to play with Lionel Messi

Dembele announced himself as one of Europe's top prospects with a stellar season at Dortmund, scoring 10 goals, after joining from Rennes for just 15 million euros a year ago.

Messi slotted home from an Ivan Rakitic through-ball midway through the first half, despite replays showing the Argentine was clearly offside when the ball was played.

La Liga champions Real Madrid dropped points at home for the second game running when they drew 1-1 with Levante on Saturday, with Gareth Bale squandering a series of chances and Marcelo getting sent off late on.

With Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez occupying the other two positions in the attacking trio, it's going to take something extremely special for Deulofeu to stay in the starting XI. "We keep saying this day after day, game after game".

Piatti, though, could only clip an attempted lob past the far post with the goal wide open.

Espanyol were being outplayed but retained a sporadic threat, with Pique and Samuel Umtiti diverting Leo Batistao's 61st-minute shot behind.

Messi put the outcome beyond any doubt by rounding off his hat-trick with another sharp finish from Alba's cut-back.

Barca manager Ernesto Vervede introduced new signings Ousmane Dembele and Paulinho for their Barcelona debuts in the second half.

Suarez then scored the fifth goal, his first of the season, with the assist from new boy Dembele in the 90th minute.

Messi maintained his sizzling club form with goals in the 26th, 35th and 67th minute to propel the Blaugrana to the top of the league table with nine points from three matches.
