Barcelona only just managed to overcome a resilient Villarreal CF side to snatch three points, thanks to late goals from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

It took 73 minutes and a red card for them to finally get a breakthrough at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Luis Suarez opened the scoring with a well taken goal, before Lionel Messi finally put the game to bed in the 11 minutes later thanks to some careless defending from the hosts.

Luis Suarez opened the scoring, after rounding off the keeper and finishing in style.  It was a Suarez rarely seen this season, but some fans were still critical of his performance on the night.

Despite having a pretty quiet night before the goal, Lionel Messi got his 18th of the season after being played through by Sergio Busquets, and the fans just couldn’t get enough of the Argentine.

Paco Alcacer’s introduction seemed to change the game for Ernesto Valverde’s side and fans began calling for his inclusion in the starting XI after yet another good performance.
