Watch: Messi, Suarez and Neymar all score in first half v Leganes

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona's game against Leganes this afternoon was the first time that Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have all started for the Catalan club in La Liga this season.

And it hasn't taken 'MSN' long to rekindle their formidable goal-scoring relationship in the league, with all three forwards scoring in the first half.

All three goals - seen below - epitomise just why the trio are widely considering the best front line in world football right now, with unselfish play between all three stars playing their part in each goal.

Messi kicked things off in the 15th minute, when Suarez (who else) laid on a simple finish at the end of an impressive Barcelona counter-attack.

The Argentinian then returned the favour not long after as he pounced on a loose pass from Leganes and, after drifting past one defender, laid the ball across to Suarez for a simple tap in.

Not to be left out, it was Neymar who completed Barcelona's very impressive first half display with a third goal just before the break.

And it was a case of saving the best until last as all three forwards were involved before the Brazilian was able to convert yet another open goal.

The moment of magic, though, undoubtedly came from Messi who, earlier in the build up, bamboozled an opponent with some smart ball-juggling skills before unleashing Suarez through on goal.

Four days on from running riot against Celtic at the Camp Nou, Barcelona look like they could run up another rugby score this afternoon.

With 45 minutes still left to play, you wouldn't blame the Leganes players for wishing they didn't have to come out for the second half as they prepare to face 'MSN' for another gruelling period.
