Luis Suarez netted a sublime overhead kick as champions Barcelona land on second in La Liga with an undisputed victory against Sevilla at the Nou Camp.
The Ernesto Valverde’s team cleared Julen Lopetegui’s guest away with three clear goals in eight first-half minutes.
It was Suarez that scored the opener with an acrobatic finish after 27 minutes, before Arturo Vidal and Ousmane Dembele supported the lead with absolute goals.
Barcelona star Lionel Messi backed up the win by scoring with a well placed free-kick late on.
Barca had 20-year-old debutant Ronald Araujo and Ousmane Dembele sent off in the closing stages, and that was after Araujo brought down Javier Hernandez when last man – and Dembele was given a second yellow card for dissent in the aftermath.
Barcelona move to within two points of edgers Real Madrid heading into the international break, after Zinedine Zidane’s club defeated Granada 4-2 on Saturday game.
On the other hand, Atletico Madrid were held down to a third goalless draw in four league games against Real Valladolid earlier on Sunday.
Good deal for Barcelona!
