90 in 90: Espanyol 0-4 Barcelona

By Michael McCann

An inspired Lionel Messi scored two free-kicks as Barcelona won 4-0 at Catalan rivals Espanyol to go three points clear in La Liga.

Barcelona led when Messi won and scored a free-kick, before the Argentine created space to assist Ousmane Dembele for 2-0.

Luis Suarez reached double figures this season when scoring from an acute angle just before half-time, then Messi scored another stunning free-kick after the break.

Oscar Duarte’s late consolation was ruled out by the video assistant referee system.

Espanyol have lost their last four La Liga games.
