MADRID (AP):

Lionel Messi put on another show at the Camp Nou yesterday, scoring a remarkable goal from a free kick and then helping to set up a hat-trick for Luis Su*rez - including a daring assist from a penalty kick, as Barcelona thrashed Celta Vigo 6-1.

Ivan Rakitic and Neymar also scored for Barcelona, which opened up a three-point lead in the Spanish league over Atletico Madrid with the impressive victory.

Messi curled a left-foot shot over the wall to start the scoring in the 28th minute, and then mesmerised the Camp Nou crowd as he helped Suarez to score in the 59th, 75th and then the 81st from the Argentine's penalty kick.

Instead of shooting the spot-kick himself, Messi just rolled the ball to the side for the inrushing Suarez to drive home.
