Messi back for Barcelona

Moments of Barcelona magic have become commonplace at Camp Nou, but that shouldn't make them any less impressive.

Suarez establish the tone along with his overhead kick in the 25th minute as he raised his tally to 24 goals for the titleholders in the league this year.

Barcelona is closing in on La Liga leaders Real Madrid as they attained an emphatic 3-0 victory over fellow title rivals Sevilla.

Barcelona dominated the ball as the game kicked off and after a three-and-a-half minute passing spell where Sevilla didn't touch the ball, Messi smashed a shot onto the crossbar from the edge of the box, leaving Sergio Rico with no chance.

Sevilla was fighting for the league title not long ago, but now it sees itself 10 points off the lead, in fourth place and already having to worry about qualifying for the top European club competition next season. However, he was absent from the team's 2-0 loss to Bolivia five days later because of a four-game suspension for insulting a linesman, then missed Barcelona's 4-1 win at Granada over the weekend.

For Barcelona, the result means that Real Madrid will go into the Madrid derby on Saturday knowing that should they slip up, the Catalans will leapfrog them should they beat Malaga later on the day.

Scottish voters rejected independence in a 2014 referendum that Sturgeon's Scottish National Party called a once-in-a-generation vote.

After shooting the ball into the net to double Barcelona's lead in the 28th minute, the 29-year-old Argentine swiped two fingers across his right cheek to symbolize the application of war paint.

The Uruguayan was involved in the second three minutes later with a goal which was not as spectacular in the finish but was stunning in its creation. The Spanish side enters the match now enduring its worst moment of the season, winless in their last five matches.

La Masia graduate Carles Alena appeared near the end for his Camp Nou bow, smudged by a booking.

"Barca don't need many chances to score". This defeat leaves them 11 points behind second-place Barcelona and three behind Atletico Madrid, who have usurped Sevilla in third place.

Meanwhile, this will likely be the final dagger in Sampaoli's faltering hopes of replacing Enrique, who is departing Barcelona after the season. Time at Sevilla seems to drawing to a close for Sampaoli, with rumours suggesting the three-time Europa League winning manager will soon be on his way to Milan from the next season.
