Messi produced another remarkable display for in LaLiga on Sunday evening to move Barca 10 points clear of Atletico Madrid in the title race.

That is what happened Sunday when Real Betis fans stood and clapped Lionel Messi after the Barcelona star completed a brilliant hattrick in a resounding 4-1 win for the Catalans.

LaLiga's leaders have now confirmed that Suarez sustained a sprained ankle that will rule him out of action for Uruguay and the remainder of March. Barca has won four straight in La Liga and has a seven-point lead over Atletico.

And Valverde conceded Barca are now closing in on a second La Liga title in two years since he was appointed as the successor to Luis Enrique. "I'm very happy for the victory, which was very important. We have to keep playing like we have been without giving anything away".


Free-kicks are just one aspect of the game that FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has almost perfected, but how does his LaLiga direct set-pieces record compare to that of Cristiano Ronaldo's in Spain?

"We have to adapt, there are specific moments and games and we have to be prepared for everything, good things will come". Earlier in the season, they lost to them 4-3 at the Nou Camp and remain the only side to beat Erneste Valverde's team on their own patch this season.

He scored the second goal for Barcelona in the 45th minute thanks to a superb assist he got from Luis Suarez.

After the game, the Argentine acknowledged the support of his opponent team's fans, adding that he did not remember seeing it before.
