Barcelona romped to a 4-1 victory over Granada in the La Liga on Sunday night despite the absence of Lionel Messi. Luis Suarez scored a delightful lob to open the scoring before on-loan Chelsea midfielder Jeremie Boga equalised for the hosts.

Paco Alcacer restored Barca’s lead before Granada’s Uche Agbo was sent off for two yellow cards. Ivan Rakitic’s deflected goal made it 3-1 before Neymar finished off the hosts with the final goal to make it 4-1.

Twitter was abuzz after Neymar scored his 100th goal for the Blaugranes, with several Tweeters paying tribute to the Brazilian superstar as well as his fantastic performance on the night.

Jeremie Boga was also on the receiving end of praise after putting in a good performance for Granada against difficult opposition.

Several fans were also appreciative of Paco Alcacer, who has failed to make his mark on Barcelona’s first team this season.

There was plenty of talk after Samuel Umtiti was benched for the match, with several fans bewildered by Luis Enrique’s decision, especially after Granada equalised.
