Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi stole the show in the Champions League as Barcelona built on their demolition of Real Madrid at the weekend with a 6-1 rout of AS Roma at the Camp Nou.

Barca’s showing was as perfect a dissection of an opponent as you’re ever likely to see, and particular credit must go to Messi and Suarez who were simply outstanding.

Suarez opened the scoring on 15 minutes before turning provider three minutes later to set up Messi and give Luis Enrique’s side a strangle-hold on the match.

The Uruguay frontman himself bagged a third before half time, while Gerard Pique made sure of victory after the break following selfless work from Messi.

The Argentine superstar-making his first start after an injury absence-made it 5-0 just before the hour mark, before Adriano added a sixth on 77 minutes after Neymar had missed a penalty.

There was still time for Andre ter-Stegen to save Edin Dzeko’s penalty as Barcelona demonstrated-in vivid technicolour-why they are worthy favourites to retain their title.
