Lionel Messi Barcelona La Liga

There's no denying that Dembele has struggled since joining Barcelona last summer, but there have been signs of late that the young Frenchman is beginning to feel more at ease at his new club.

Eibar went close once more after great footwork in the middle of midfield by Joan Jordán created space for a quick break and, after a neat backheel from Inui, Kike fired in a curling effort from the edge of the area, which Keylor Navas was forced to tip around the post. "But something very good has occurred in his life and we congratulate him".

It was a simple evening for Barcelona, who are closing in on the La Liga title as they swept aside bottom-placed Malaga on Saturday evening.

His performance against Malaga will surely convince Ernesto Valverde to give him some playing time in the return leg on Wednesday night.

The Uruguay striker has now netted versus each of the 25 Spanish top-flight sides has played against in Barcelona colours, helping him to a total of 106.

Ciro is brother to 5-year-old Thiago and Mateo, 2.

"He didn't need a game like this as we all know he is a magnificent player", the Croatian said.

Earlier on Saturday, Zinedine Zidane labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as "from another galaxy" after the striker's double dragged Real Madrid to a 2-1 win over Eibar.

That's according to his Barcelona team mate Philippe Coutinho, who moved to the Nou Camp from Liverpool in January. "The move was perfect".

Gareth Bale started up front alongside the Portuguese, while Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, fit enough only to come off the bench in midweek, returned.

Why is he missing from the game?

He is a different, special player.

Argentinean Messi has four goals in his last three LaLiga games for leaders Barca, who would go 11 points clear with victory at the La Rosaleda Stadium. The referee showed him a straight red card, leaving the hosts down to 10 men and with little chance of getting back into the game.

Jordi Alba's long cross met Suarez's run near the penalty spot, where the striker floated a header into the corner of the net for the opening goal.
