#EibarBarça: Eibar 0-3 Barcelona (Watch All Goals)
Barcelona moved to the summit of La Liga as goals from Antoine Griezmann, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez earned them victory at Eibar.
Barca opted to travel to the Basque Country early on Thursday amid the political unrest in their home city as a result of nine Catalan political leaders being dealt long prison sentences for their roles in the region’s 2017 referendum and subsequent declaration of independence.
However, the issues didn’t seem to affect Barca, who took the lead on 13 minutes when Griezmann took advantage of a slip from Eibar’s Pablo de Blasis to race through and open the lead.
Suarez had an effort ruled out for offside after the break before Argentine Messi slotted in the second.
It was 3-0 on 66 minutes when Messi unselfishly played in Suarez when the two were bearing down on Eibar goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic, and the Uruguay international finished off into the empty net.
Barca’s victory comes a day after next weekend’s scheduled El Clasico home match against Real Madrid was postponed because of fears of civil unrest.
