Munir El Haddadi doubled the lead from Messi's cross and the Argentine played in Neymar to score the third as Barca breezed through the visiting defence at will. Messi produced more magic to fire in a fourth before half-time and another fine through-ball allowed Neymar to make it five, before Arda Turan's clever finish from close range gave the home side their sixth inside the opening hour.
