Luis Suarez scored a sensational hattrick on the eve of his one year anniversary for Barcelona to propel them to the second spot in La Liga.
Luis Suarez struck his first goal in the 22nd minute of the match after heading in from close range following great work by Sandro in the buildup. Barely a few minutes into the second half, El Pistolero gave the Barcelona the lead after tapping in from 6 yards out following a neat Neymar pass.
The Uruguayan completed his hat-trick 10 minutes from time after smashing a low drive into the bottom left hand corner. Earlier, Eibar had taken a shock lead at the Camp Nou after just 10 minutes when Verdi slotted in the rebound after Kekoa s shot was parried away by Barcelona Claudio Bravo.
The result sent Barcelona to second place in La Liga – level on points with bitter rivals Real Madrid.
Speaking to the media after his sidea s 3-1 win over Eibar, FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique heaped enormous praise upon hattrick hero Suarez.
Twittersphere wasn’t far behind either. Here is how they reacted to Suarez’s hat-trick and Barcelona’s win over Eibar on Sunday.

What a performance by SuA?rez today. The third goal was the highlight; still had so much to do when he received the pass from Neymar. Superb.
