MSN destroys Espanyol edging Closer To Title

FC Barcelona moved one step closer to clinching the La Liga title, after they thumped Espanyol 5-0 at the Camp Nou.

The hosts took the lead after just eight played minutes later, as Lionel Messi netted his 26th league goal with a fine free-kick from the edge of the area.

Barcelona had the ball in the back of the net again a few minutes later, but Ivan Rakitic's close range strike was flagged for offside.

Luis Enrique's charges continued to dominate and they were presented with a chance to double the lead in the 23rd minute, but Messi scuffed his shot in the box.

Despite having a lion-share of the possession, the score remained 1-0 as the sides entered the halftime break.

The hosts then doubled their lead in the 52nd minute, as Luis Suarez latched onto a pass from Messi, before clinically firing past Pau, 2-0.

Suarez did not have to wait long to get his second, as the Uruguayan got on the end of Neymar's cross and powered home a header from the center of the box, 3-0.

The league leaders grabbed the fourth goal in the 74th minute, as substitute Rafinha tapped home from close range, after poor error from Pau.

Neymar rounded off the scoring in the 83rd minute, as Suarez turned provider and teed up the Brazilian for the simple close range finish, 5-0
