Crisis, what crisis? Barcelona may well have lost their last three consecutive La Liga fixtures, but they are currently responding in style against Deportivo. 

Indeed, at the interval, Luis Enrique's side are 2-0 up at the home of their Spanish counterparts. 

The Catalans have been rightly criticised in recent weeks, but their first-half display at the Estadio Riazor has been truly magnificent.

With Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi all starting for Barca, the former has, so far, taken charge. 

The Uruguayan international has been truly magnificent throughout the course of the campaign and it's safe to say that he has been on fire this evening. 

Brilliant Suarez 

The ex-Liverpool man opened the scoring after just 11 minutes as he lost his marker with ease to slot home following a corner. 

You can see the goal here: 

But there can be no denying that his second goal was a special one. Linking up with Messi, Suarez once again accurately found the back of the net. 

But it was a truly magnificent piece of play from Messi, who found his teammate: the technically gifted superstar produced a magical touch to set his teammate. It really was the perfect touch. 

Here's Barca's second goal: 

In truth, after a fine cross from Dani Alves, Suarez should have probably secured a 34-minute hat-trick, but it wasn't meant to be. 

Deportivo have it all to do in the second half, but they have probably blown their best chance at getting a result from the game. When they were 1-0 down, Victor Sanchez's side missed two glorious opportunities to equalise. 

Real and Atletico 

A victory for Barca will certainly put the pressure on Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, who both play this evening. 

Real play host Villarreal, while Atletico, who are currently level on points with the Catalans, are set for a tricky away clash against Athletic Bilbao.
