Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez led Barcelona to a comfortable 6-2 victory at home over Real Betis as the reigning La Liga champions opened their title defence with a convincing display of passing football and devastating finishing at the Camp Nou on Saturday.

Messi scored twice and Suarez netted a hat-trick as Barcelona started the new season as they ended the last despite part three of MSN - Neymar still being on duty with Brazil at the Olympic Games.

Luis Suarez's goal helped Barcelona beat Sevilla 2-0 in the first leg of the Spanish Supercup. The Uruguayan striker broke the deadlock for Barcelona in the 55th minute before Munir El Haddadi sealed the victory when he ran onto a Lionel Messi through-ball and fired home in the 81st minute on Sunday.

"In the second half we played very well. It's important to win away from home against an opponent as good as Sevilla," Suarez said after the game.

The second leg of the Supercup will be played on Wednesday at the Camp Nou, with Barcelona now overwhelming favourites to clinch it.


Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez of Barcelona is convinced that Lionel Messi "will reconsider" a return to the Argentina national football team, from which he announced his withdrawal after the last edition of the Copa America.

"He's fine, he's having a good vacation and like every player, he's excited to get back to training," Efe quoted Suarez as saying in a press conference on Friday.

An incredible game of football at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night had all the drama one can expect from the UEFA Champions League and more as Barcelona take a 2-1 lead into the second leg of their tie against Manchester City.

Barcelona were irresistible in the first half and were duly rewarded with a 2-0 half-time lead as Luis Suarez celebrated his return to English soil by grabbing a brace. His first of the night came in the 16th minute as an unfortunate ricochet at the back presented the ball to the Uruguayan, who finished with aplomb.

Liverpool have been linked with an audacious offer for Barcelona's combative full-back Dani Alves. According to reports in Mundo Deportivo, the Brazil international, who is in his last year of contract at the Camp Nou, could be roped in to replace Glen Johnson, who is in his last year of contract at Anfield.

Barcelona are expected to undergo an across the board change in personnel following the arrival of new manager Luis Enrique from Celta de Vigo. The Catalan giants have spent well over £120 million in the transfer market to recruit the likes of Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic, with more deals waiting in the pipeline. It stands to reason that there will be a change in guard under new stewardship and Enrique could very well give the more defensive minded Martin Montoya the green light ahead of Alves.

Paris Saint-Germain have already come calling for Alves, but were turned back by UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations. Liverpool are believed to be offering Barcelona £5 million for the 31 year old right back. Alves on his part might just be tempted to play out his swansong with one of the biggest clubs in the world, competing at the highest level.

The FIFA Appeal Committee today rejected the appeals lodged by both Uruguayan and Liverpool superstar Luis Suárez and the Uruguayan FA, and to confirm the decision rendered by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee on 25 June 2014 in its entirety. The terms of the decision taken by the FIFA Appeal Committee were communicated to the player and the Uruguayan FA today.

The decision, however, is not yet final and binding, i.e. an appeal to the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) is still possible by the player and/or the Uruguayan FA, subject to certain conditions.
